So (Freakin') Delicious


I went shopping and got all the components of the vegan Thanksgiving feast I plan on creating. Well, all the things that wouldn't go bad between now and then anyway. One such item was vanilla ice cream to accompany the vegan pumpkin pie I plan on getting. Trying to avoid soy, I opted for the new Purely Decadent Coconut Milk Ice Cream. This is the latest offering from Turtle Mountain, which has other ice creams under the labels So Delicious, Soy Delicious, and Purely Decadent, all of which are very yummy. Right off the bat, I was impressed by the nutrition label. 150 calories per 1/2 cup is about 50 less than the soy versions, and there are remarkably few ingredients. It's pretty much just coconut milk, vanilla, and agave. I was a little worried, however, that the coconut flavor would be overwhelming, especially when paired with the pie. Therefore, I decided to test it out tonight. All in the name of a good Thanksgiving, right? :)

Oh man. The stuff is great; not coconut-y at all! I can't wait to try the other flavors, especially the cookie dough. I managed to leave enough for Thanksgiving... but there is more than a week between now and then, so I'm not making any promises. I highly recommend you try this stuff. Even my favorite "other" (the husband) was impressed. Let me know what you think if you try it yourself.

After eating at Maggie Mudd, I don't think ice cream should ever be made with anything other than coconut milk. It is sooooooooo good.

I just got the so delicious coconut ice cream sandwiches. The filling tastes like the frozen coconut cubes my grandparents used to make. I'd eat tons of those.

Yeah, I'm really impressed with this ice cream and will definitely be eating more of it... at Thanksgiving and beyond. :) I'll have to try those sandwiches, Joselle. Thanks for the tip!
