Coconut Bliss Ice Cream - Vegan

This is my absolute number one favorite vegan ice cream!! Whether you are a vegan or not, you are missing out on some delicious ice cream if you haven't tried Coconut Bliss Ice Cream yet. It's available in Naked Almond Fudge, Pineapple Coconut, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Naked Coconut, Dark Chocolate, Vanilla Island, Mint Galactica, Cappuccino, Cherry Amaretto, Chocolate Hazelnut Fudge flavors. (I wish all the flavors are available at my local store...)

Better yet, coconut is good for you! If you just read the nutritional information on the package, you'll see a quite bit of saturated fat. But behold, saturated fat in coconut oil is different from saturated fat from animal products. It has no cholesterol and contains medium chain fatty acids which can be easily broken down and used for energy. It also has agave syrup as a sweetener, which doesn't cause a sugar rush followed by sugar crash like regular sugar used in regular ice cream.

This picture was taken at the Healthy Living Fair in Issaquah, WA. I got to meet and chat with a really nice gal from the Coconut Bliss tasting team there. She gave me some sample bites, coupons and this fun brochure:

Until I read the brochure, I didn't know that the business was started by a couple in Oregon who are passionate about ice cream and bought a $1.50 hand-cranked ice cream machine at a Goodwill to create some vegan ice cream for themselves. Then they started having tasting parties at their house... and soon the stores wanted to sell them... and here they are!

I really appreciate their commitment to not only to create great taste but also to use the best organic ingredients. Their coconut milk comes from an organic family-owned farm in Thailand, and all their cocoa, chocolate, vanilla and coffee are from certified fair-trade sources.

For more information, you can visit their website, but I say "Tasting is believing", so please give it a try. If you don't like it, I will gladly take any left over ice cream from you!!
