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.
All in all, I was quite happy and I give this 4 tuna cans – This stuff rocks!
