It's the time... of the season for... ice cream! I'm not a huge fan of frozen desserts, but when the balmy summer weather hits, sometimes that's exactly what I need to feel satisfied. I recently sampled a couple of products from So Delicious, makers of all sorts of delicious non-dairy treats such as yogurt, creamer, beverages, and frozen desserts made with almond milk, coconut milk, and soy milk. I love that they have several options for those who may be sensitive to soy, and this is what I tried. I'm really excited to give you an opportunity to try some for FREE!! (SEE BELOW!)
Butter Pecan is the flavor that I gravitated to because it reminded me most of my childhood. The almond milk version is rich and luscious, with a creaminess you'd never know wasn't vegan.
I found this to be perfect on top of a chocolatey dessert such as cake or brownie, and it would probably be even more fabulous drizzled with hot fudge.
Just to compare, I also sampled the no-sugar-added coconut milk version of Butter Pecan. The flavor was not sacrificed at all by the erythritol used as a low-calorie sweetener. This had a lighter feel than the almond milk, and it was a bit more icy than creamy when scooping out of the container. I would recommend letting it sit at room temperature for about 5-10 minutes to soften it up before serving.
Nonetheless, this went really well on top of my Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp, and I imagine it would be nice simply served on top of fresh berries.
I highly recommend So Delicious, and I'm pleased to announce that they have given me coupons for FREE products to share with my readers so you can see for yourself how amazing their ice cream is! TWO lucky people will receive a FREE coupon for ANY product to try!
