Turtle Mountain sent me a bunch of their new line of dairy free ice cream to taste. It's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it...
Their new dairy free ice cream products are delicious. Many build on the coconut milk ice cream that they came out with recently, and a few are just great fruit additions.
While some might be gun shy about the amount of saturated fat in the new So Delicious line, not all saturated fats are created equally.
As Turtle Mountainsays on its advertising, coconutmilk is filled with medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs), which contain lauric and capric acid, which help build the immune system. It's important to remember thatcoconut milk's health benefits are just now being discovered.
The body uses MCFAs as energy instead of stored fat, and they have anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial properties. Whilecoconut milk may not be the best option for someone on a diet, they are great for people who just need to maintain their weight.
So Delicious coconut milk dairy free ice cream is the whitest white you've ever seen, and really light and fluffy. In the vanilla and chocolate flavors, you can taste only the faintest coconut flavor in the background, so even if you're not a big coconut fan, you will still love this ice cream. On the other hand, if you love coconut, the coconut ice cream bars are right up your alley.
The So Delicious coconut milk novelties come in 3 different sandwich flavors and 2 bar flavors. I adore the banana split mini sandwiches--they have strawberry, banana, and chocolate on the sandwich, and the whole thing has a faint banana smell. It reminds me of flavored marshmallows frozen and smashed into a chocolate cookie sandwich.

Their line of coconut milk So Delicious also has dairy free vegan yogurt in 6 ounce cups. Their yogurts are incredibly creamy, but not heavy at all. My favorite flavors are the fruits-- the strawberry, blueberry, and even pina colada, which I don't usually like.

The So Delicious Agave Sweetened So Delicious Dairy Free Minis Fruit Bars are delicious. The bars are small, and are the perfect size for a child's dessert. There's no high fructose corn syrup or cane sugar; they are sweetened just with agave nectar. For anyone looking to lose weight, these are a great summer treat.
The dairy free ice cream bars come in three flavors:
So Delicious has also packaged up coconut milk inoriginal, unsweetened, and vanilla in half gallon containers in the refrigerated section of the grocery store. The milk is made from coconut cream with some preservatives, and the vanilla and original flavor had cane sugar.
