Erykah Badu, the Queen of Neo-Soul and a noted Vegan for more than 20 years, has found a new sweet treat to savor: Wheelers Frozen Desserts' vegan ice cream.

“I love this ice cream,” she said. “I can’t wait to make it at home.”

And now she can: the culinary mastermind behind the treats, chef/author Wheeler del Torro -- think of him as the vegan Willy Wonka -- has released a book called The Vegan Scoop.

The Vegan Scoop contains 150 innovative and oh-so-tasty recipes for Badu, and other healthy eating vegans to keep cool with this summer. Recipes for vegan sweets range from classic chocolate and vanilla, to seaweed, and even Thai Chile, ensuring that there is the right potion for every pallet embedded in the pages of this book.

And the upside is something even non-vegans can savor: non-diary ice creams featured in this book contain zero cholesterol, 50 percent fewer calories and 16 times less fat than some of the household name ice creams in your grocer's freezer, according to del Torro.
