That familiar song from the white truck is back signaling a prelude to the summer season and sending subliminal messages about our favorite dessert! Instead of picking up the familiar family tub of dairy, scout out this hand-crafted, coconut-based alternative that is just as decadent. It’s free of any animal-based products, preservatives and cholesterol yet still every bit as indulgent as everyone’s favorite frozen dessert. Described as “delicate, with a hint of spice” the consistency is smooth and creamy and the flavor, accented by rich vanilla bean specs, leaves a comforting aftertaste. Customize it with nuts, cocoa nibs, etc. if you wish. There is also a no sugar-added variety of this flavor*. Who knew a non-dairy version of one of America’s most popular standbys could be so enjoyable? And if that’s not enough, know that a portion of this brand’s profits goes to Mercy for Animals (MFA), a national organization dedicated to preventing cruelty to farmed animals and promoting compassionate food choices and policies. Received the 2013 VegNews Best of Show Awards: Best New Vegan Product at Expo West.
*This brand is not just about “vanilla” and does not just make coconut based frozen dessert, though that is the flavor and variety we believe worth highlighting here. Other coconut flavors are Alphonso Mango, Key Lime Creme, and Del Lago Chocolate. And other flavors are available from the soy collection – originals like New Orleans Salted Praline, Sicilian Hazelnut Truffle and Peanut Butter Fudge Mash.
