I’ve spent way too much money on sub par dairy-free ice cream in my years post-dairy. Despite the endless dead ends, I have continued on my quest to find ice cream that is rich, creamy, and perfect. Having tried rice, almond, and coconut based varieties without finding my Goldilocks product, I could not wait to give the new line of cashew milk ice creams from dairy-free dedicated So Delicious Dairy Free a try.
These new flavors are an interesting break from the typical flavors found in conventional ice cream. Moving towards the more gourmet realm, these flavors go above and beyond your average chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry options. The new flavors are: cappuccino, creamy cashew, dark chocolate truffle, salted caramel cluster, and snickerdoodle. Mixing notes of sweet, salty, and nutty, the flavors certainly elevate the simple indulgence of ice cream to a delicious, dreamy affair.
As it happened, the search for this delicacy- my “cashew crusade” as it came to be known- brought me all across town to several grocery store chains in search of the elusive pints. Before delving into each flavor, here’s an overview of the whole cashew milk ice cream line. All five of the flavors are:
- Dairy-free (Certified)
- Vegan (Certified)
Yes, the ice creams are cashew-based, so they are not nut free. Some flavors have coconut, for those who are watching their allergens.
Dark Chocolate Truffle
Salted Caramel Cluster
The last flavor I picked up was the cappuccino one. The luxurious cashew base perfectly complements the fair trade coffee, which lends the ice cream to taste like a creamy cappuccino. Forget Starbucks, I’d take a couple scoops of this over a coffee drink any day. Of all the flavors, this one seems perfect for a milkshake (using cashew milk as the liquid). However, I must admit that it was my least favorite flavor of the quintet as I am not a huge fan of coffee. Nevertheless, it was pretty good, just not my favorite.
Now for the most precious morsel of information: where I located them. I found the dark chocolate truffle at Hoover’s Market locally in Altamonte Springs, and picked up the creamy cashew and salted caramel cluster at Walmart in Sanford.
