I am so excited about this book! I made two recipes out of it this last weekend - Roasted Banana and Rocky Road. WOW! So easy to follow and very fun flavors. I love that she gave options for thickeners.

Here's the reasons it's worth $20:

-This book is specifically for those seeking dairy free, refined sugar free, grain free, and/or vegan ice cream alternatives. I don't have the time or patience to develop even 5 recipes that meet these criteria AND taste as wonderful as these recipes do. I'm a busy woman. Give me the recipe and I can go with it.

-Since these recipes cater to special dietary needs, it calls for ingredients that a) can be expensive b) are not necessarily used in everyday cooking. For these reasons, I'd much rather spend $20 on recipes that I know have been tested with these ingredients by someone who has experience using them than spend a small fortune trying to come up with a recipe that makes the cut. Kelly has done all of the hard work for us here!

Once cherries are in season here, I'm going to make the bing cherry ice cream. Can't Wait!

I just love the recipes in this cookbook. My kids and I are dairy, sugar and gluten free. We avoid processed foods at all costs. I have spent years trying to reinvent all the foods typical kids like just so my kids could have similar things. This was so time and money consuming, testing and failing, testing and failing, especially when it involved frozen treats. I thought we would never be able to eat ice cream. This led to tears as the ice cream truck would pass the house or they served an ice cream treat at school. Until I found The Spunky Coconut! My kids can now enjoy all the things the other kids do, but it's healthy enough to be breakfast! I can feed my kids guilt-free ice cream! I can says 'yes' happily when they ask for seconds. It is well worth the cost! I give The Spunky Coconut cookbooks as gifts all the time. I try to share these amazing and healthy recipes with all my loved ones!

Well I suppose I dislike this book more than I like it but it has pros and cons. So I will start with the cons

Cons:
The book is so small. I didnt realize how small it would be until I got it. I would expect to pay 9.99 for a book this tiny.
Some of the recipes look like space fillers. For example, Cookie dough ice cream: Make cookie dough, Make vanilla ice cream, mix...
A lot of the recipes can be found on her blog, but that is the case with a lot of cookbooks.
Sugar free on a technicality. Dates, honey, agave, stevia I actually dont mind those as being listed sugar free because they are. But quite a few recipes have coconut sugar which really to me is just like sugar.

Pros:
It is nice to dairy free allergin free ice cream recipe.
It is easier to sub real milk or sugar instead of trying to make a recipe dairy free.
It is nice to have all the ideas in one spot instead of just printig blog posts.
I really like the section on how to thicken the ice cream and the multiple options.
I really, really like the cashew milk recipe.

Not a bad book, not a great book. I mostly feel like I overpaid for this so that is the main reason for the 3 stars

I didn't buy this book so I could just have another cook book.I purchased this book for my children who have food allergies and want to be able to enjoy the same things that other children enjoy....WELL WELL WORTH THE MONEY!!!! If you ever went into a store and tried to find many dairy free ice creams,you can't...This book gives you many options for your whole family....Job well done on the book.

This is the 4th cookbook I have purchased of Spunky Coconut's and her food is fabulous. My family loves her food. The ice cream looks amazing yet simple but in a good way. Her cookbooks are a must have for any household.

I've already made three of the recipes: Roasted Banana, Mocha Almond Fudge and Chocolate. Both the Mocha Almond Fudge and the chocolate are outstanding. A teenager commented that the chocolate ice cream was better than store bought and his brother told me that he never gives compliments that easily, so that's saying a lot!!! I really love this book! I plan to try making most of the recipes because they all look good.

All the Spunky Coconut cookbooks are fabulous, but the kids all give this one the biggest thumbs up. We are gluten, dairy, fou, and sugar free and thought we'd never be able to have ice cream again. Kelly's recipes have not caused a single upset tummy (ie, no barfing) and that in itself is worth every penny this book costs and more. To have Happy, healthy, smiling kids - as well as myself- and to be able to enjoy something everybody else can is PRICELESS. Thanks, Kelly, for all your hard, hard work! Kids like the cookie dough, the pomegranate sorbet, and the ice cream sandwiches the best. I'm stuck on the chocolate hazelnut. God bless :)

This recipe book is awesome! My husband is dairy free and I am most of the time when it come to ice cream because I don't like eating it by myself, so when I saw this book, I thought I would give it a try. The added bonus for us is that all the recipes start with a base of coconut milk, which we love. Everything I have made from this book has been absolutely amazing and I have yet to receive a negative comment from any of our friends. I would highly recommend this book for anyone looking to make some nice ice cream with no dairy and all natural flavorings.
