I don’t like a lot of coconut flavors, but I decided to give coconut milk ice cream a try. I had steered away from it in the past because I thought I would hate it, but it is actually quite tasty! (And no, I was not paid to write this and did not receive anything from the company)
Found this So Delicious brand. They make regular and no sugar added varieties that are sweetened with stevia. I decided to try the stevia sweetened one because I had never had a stevia ice cream before, and it seemed like the healthier option.
I would highly recommend this (especially the toasted almond chip one). It does not taste like a super creamy ice cream, it taste like what it is–coconut milk blended and frozen with chocolate, almonds, and stevia. It has a strong coconut flavor, but reminded me of an almond joy.
All coconut products have high saturated fat, but what research has been showing is that this saturated fat is not “bad” for us. Actually, it may help us burn fat! The important thing to know is where your fats are coming from. If it is plant-based, you are probably doing well.
Most no sugar added products have tons of artificial ingredients, additives, and sugar alcohols that can upset the digestive system. This doesn’t, and only has 4 g sugar alcohol per serving (not too bad).
Ingredients: ORGANIC COCONUT MILK (WATER, ORGANIC COCONUT CREAM), GUM ARABIC, CHOCOLATE FLAKE [COCONUT OIL, ERYTHRITOL, INULIN, COCOA PROCESSED WITH ALKALI, CHOCOLATE LIQUOR, VANILLA, REB A (STEVIA EXTRACT)], ALMONDS (ALMONDS, COTTONSEED OIL, SALT), VEGETABLE GLYCERIN, CHICORY ROOT EXTRACT, ERYTHRITOL, NATURAL FLAVORS, SEA SALT, LOCUST BEAN GUM, GUAR GUM, CARRAGEENAN, MONK FRUIT EXTRACT.
Anyway, I am not sure why they added so much fiber. One bad thing is the price. Costs about $5 for the pint.
Overall, I would rate this ice cream product as one of the healthiest that you can buy because of the very low sugar, and natural ingredients. Next, I am going to try the cookie dough flavor!
