During this time of celebration and giving, there’s a gift we can all be thankful for. Yep, coconut milk ice cream is a true gift of nature. It’s as simple as that. We thank you, nature!
Have you ever thought to yourself, “Gee, I would love a dish of ice cream.”? But then, your conscience kicks in because you’re on a diet, and you know better. Or you have dietary restrictions that prohibit you from consuming dairy or gluten, the stuff typical ice cream is made of. This rich, velvety textured sweet comes at the cost of discomfort or extra time spent in the gym. As good as the treat is, and it is good, is it worth that payment?
I mean, I’m a huge proponent of rewarding myself with dessert for every possible occasion: getting a job, celebrating a birthday, because it’s Thursday. But when you have to sacrifice something for a treat, it takes the fun and celebratory nature straight out of it.
The good news is that brands like NadaMoo! have heard our plight, and they’ve responded! Coconut milk ice cream is a treat that is not only delicious, it’s a healthy indulgence. Using natural ingredients like coconut milk and agave nectar, coconut milk ice cream takes the dairy and the eggs and that precious but oh-so-unhealthy sugar out of our yummy dessert. But, and here’s the best part, it is divine.
Coconut milk ice cream, contrary to the image you may have of ice cream flavored like coconut the rest of your life, can be made in (almost) any flavor you desire. If rich, dark chocolate ice cream is what you crave, it’s there. They simply add non-dairy chocolate to their other ingredients and there you have it. Coffee, mint, simple vanilla; these are all flavor options you can choose from.
Because it’s dairy- and gluten-free, coconut milk ice cream is ideal for people with dietary restrictions. There’s little worse than being told you can’t have something delicious because your body can’t handle it. This ice cream is a boon for those with restrictions, as it can be eaten with no worries of the side effects, except of course for the desire to have more.
For people who are struggling to take off those last few inches, ice cream is probably the most tempting treat on the market; more than the candy bar, more than birthday cake, ice cream just has an allure all its own, one that snow cones and flavored Italian ices just can’t match. So we hold out until we can’t anymore, get that gallon tub of ice cream that taunts us every time we go to the supermarket, and regret it for weeks afterward. Coconut milk ice cream eliminates this eternal struggle; it’s a healthy-fat, low-carb traditional ice cream alternative that doesn’t remind you with every bite that it’s an ‘alternative.’
Coconut milk ice cream has that same icy goodness, that same chilly sweetness we all crave from time to time. With its gluten- and dairy-free composition, we can enjoy this creamy treat with no guilt, fear or shame. Let’s hear it for Thursday!
