As many of you know, I am a vegetarian. I do eat eggs and dairy products. But, yet again, in an effort to live cruelty free, I am always looking for alternatives. For a time I was drinking soy milk only, but I stopped after reading some articles linking soy products to cancer. I still eat soy, but not as much as I used to. I’ve been buying Rice Milk, which I like if I’m having say, milk and cookies. But for cereal I like to use So Delicious Dairy Free. like the taste, but for me, it’s too rich to drink alone. I hadn’t tried the ice-cream, but yesterday I decided to give it a go in the hopes of this being another product I can buy to replace dairy ice-cream.
Here’s what I tried:
Since I bought this at the supermarket, they didn’t have the varied selection a place like Whole Foods may, so really my choices were limited to Vanilla Bean, Cookie dough, and Chocolate. Of course, I chose chocolate. You can’t go wrong with chocolate…usually. I was pleasantly pleased with this. It was actually much creamier than I thought it would be. Originally I thought it might be the consistency of say a sorbet or something similar, which I really don’t like, but it wasn’t! It didn’t have as chocolaty a flavor as I would have liked, but it was still very good, and it had a hint of coconut taste, which was expected. This product is soy free and dairy free, and they have a couple of flavors that are gluten free as well as no sugar added flavors. There are also some Almond milk varieties, which I’ll have to look for as well.
