Carla approved ice cream!

Hi everyone,

Well what a rollercoaster of summer weather we are having! As I'm writing this it feels like rain is on it's way but who knows. As someone who's digestive system doesn't particularly like dairy products, the summer treat of ice creams has been off my list for quite a while. There are definitely more options available now that vegan or plant-based eating is becoming more popular but every time I've picked one and up and looked at the ingredients they fall well short of the mark. They are either heavily coconut cream based which is often too rich or have a multitude of dodgy ingredients like:

  • glucose fructose syrup - highly processed and makes the liver angry

  • flavours - no need to explain!

  • vegetable oil - undisclosed which type so could be unsustainable palm oil or genetically modified canola oil

  • colouring - no need to explain!

  • soy protein isolate - harsh on the gut, likely to be genetically modified if not otherwise stated (approximately 90% of soy is GM)

However, I now have these little cuties in the freezer:

They are only small - about half the size of a magnum which actually feels like the perfect size for a treat. And although they do contain sugar, there are no other nasties in them.

So far I've tried mint and vanilla (the things I do for you!) and prefer mint but don't dislike vanilla. Hubby hasn't had a look in so far so I can't give you his verdict.

Not only are they dairy free and suitable for people following a vegan diet, they are also gluten and soy free - win, win, win for people with food sensitivities! Not nut free though...obviously.

I found them at McLaren Vale Romeo's Foodland...make sure you leave me some.

Happy ice cream / frozen desserting!

Carla :)
