Dairy Free, Sugar Free, Gluten Free Ice Cream?

Is there such a thing that tastes good? Yes!! There is. I have had the pleasure to try two different brands of coconut milk ice cream. They are both very good. The first one is by Purely Decadent.
It is creamy and delicious. Some of their flavors do contain sugar, so be on the look out. My main draw to this product- it is available at Kroger! That means I can feed a craving in the middle of the night! 

The second brand is Coconut Bliss.
When I have time to plan for ice cream this is my choice. I found it at Whole Foods and Life Grocery near me. I find Coconut Bliss to be creamier than the Purely Decadent brand. I like that!!

Both of these brands are sweetened with agave nectar. Both of these brands have been eaten by dairy lover friends of mine and they liked them!

What I love about these- I can have ice cream that is tasty and delicious!! Shoot. My Dr. even asked me if I had tried Coconut Bliss. YES! was my emphatic reply. Thank you Purely Decadent and Coconut Bliss for making such wonderful products for those of us who have limited diets or food allergies. Keep them coming!!

Hi Kara,
Thanks so much for the Coconut Bliss love! What a lucky girl you are to have your Dr. asking about it, last time I was in and we were talking about my job my Dr. didn't have much of a clue about us.

You should be able to find us in Kroger too, we should have hit shelves in May. Please let me know if we're not in your store and we'll see what we can do.
Blissful Regards,

I'm so excited about coconut milk ice cream, and Purely Decadent's chocolate flavor is as rich and creamy as any gelato. I actually prefer it to the Coconut Bliss. It seems to have a deeper, richer flavor for me.

Justine, I prefer Purely Decadant's chocolate flavor if I want chocolate ice cream. I love that it is made with carob. I am off of caffeine and pretty much everything else! But for every other flavor I think that Coconut Bliss has the competition beat! Enjoy your ice cream eating.

I haven't tried any of them yet. The hubby's made so much ice cream lately, I would feel bad buying some at the store.

I am always amazed at how tasty foods can be without ingredients we thought were essential. I made a vegan bean dip this weekend that normally calls for cream cheese and sour cream. I substituted Tofutti and it was awesome!

Haha! I was searching for a recipe for coconut milk ice cream and stumbled upon your post. I am crazy about So Delicious coconut milk ice cream. (I guess that's the same company that makes Purely Decadent.) I've tried the green tea, pomegranate chip and coconut almond chip so far, and I can't believe how rich and creamy they taste.

Kara said...

Angel, yes Purely Decadent is the brand name that makes SO Delicious. My downfall with them is that they use sugar in a lot of their recipes. I can't have sugar! You should try to find the Coconut Bliss Brand and give it a whirl. You won't be disappointed!
Also making coconut milk ice cream at home isn't hard. But I have yet to make it as creamy as a bought brand!
