Since we are still in a heat wave, we sampled Nada Moo! coconut-milk ice cream, which came highly recommended by a fellow sweet tooth who says she’s never met a Nada Moo flavor she didn’t like.

After tasting Nada Moo’s Cookies & Creme, we feel quite certain that we’d agree about all the other flavors.

Nada MooCookies & Creme is amazing: rich, creamy, with a strong vanilla flavor and plenty of crunchy chocolate cookies.

IMG_3081The texture is lighter and fluffier in texture than Coconut Bliss (which isn’t better or worse, just different), and, like Coconut Bliss, the ice cream is made with organic coconut milk.

IMG_3083We are very much looking forward to enduring the heat wave with more Nada Moo.  Other flavors include Chocolate Cherry Fudge Brownie, Pistachio Nut, Vanilla Cha-Cha-Chai, Sweet Cherry Lime, and Maple Pecan. Yum.

It was rumored for a long time that Ben & Jerry’s would introduce vegan flavors — and they’re here! With summer on the way, we highly recommend stocking up on all these dairy-free flavors.

Made with almond milk, Ben & Jerry’s has four vegan flavors (so far), and all are absolutely divine.

  • Chunky Monkey (banana ice cream with fudge chunks and walnuts)
  • P.B. & Cookies (vanilla ice cream with chocolate sandwich cookies and crunchy peanut butter swirls)
  • Coffee Caramel Fudge (coffee ice cream with fudge chunks and caramel swirl)
  • Chocolate Fudge Brownie (dark chocolate ice cream with fudge brownies).

All are delicious — the very favorite among us was Coffee Caramel Fudge, closely followed by P.B. & Cookies. And my personal favorite is Chocolate Fudge Brownie, which is just sinfully rich and delicious.

Thanks to Ben & Jerry’s for making this compassionate choice — this a great step forward for animal lovers, ice cream lovers, and especially for the cows!
