Product: So Delicious Dairy Free No Sugar Added Butter Pecan Coconut Milk Frozen Dessert – $6.99+
There is a short list of treats that I forever want in my life. Seriously. This ranges from my local gluten-free bakery (Annie May’s Sweet Café) vegan chocolate chip cookies to my gluten free lemon chiffon cake…to ICE CREAM!
The thing with ice cream is…as much as I love ice cream, being lactose intolerant means that sometimes…the ice cream doesn’t love me back. This means that it’s better for me to skip it all together…or find something that is equally as delicious…and just like that rich, creamy, amazing dairy-filled treat that I grew up eating…year round!
The answer, my friends, is no further than your grocery store freezer.
The amazing and wonderful people at So Delicious Dairy Free sent me a few pints of their new Gluten Free and No Sugar Added frozen dessert offerings. Yes…their coconut milk ice cream, if you will. And me, being the ice cream lover that I am…am thrilled to try these flavors out. I’ve already reviewed the Gluten-Free Cookie Dough Coconut Milk Frozen Dessert and the Gluten-Free Cookies ‘N Cream Coconut Milk Frozen Dessert.
Tonight…it was on to the No Sugar Added (and still gluten-free) flavors. I asked my roomie to choose a flavor from the ones that are in the freezer. Without any hesitation she immediately chose…
…the So Delicious Dairy Free No Sugar Added Butter Pecan Coconut Milk Frozen Dessert.
Butter Pecan just happens to be her mom’s favorite ice cream flavor. Fact. Now you know.
After a very long, and somewhat stressful day…I made dinner upon getting home and after we devoured that….dessert was up. As usual, I tend to pull the pint out of the freezer while we eat dinner to allow it to soften up. Because it is made without the dairy, it sometimes gets a little more frozen than regular ice cream, so the time sitting on the counter while we dine means that it’s ready to scoop when dessert time rolls around. I was pretty stoked myself, having always enjoyed a great butter pecan ice cream. It’s one of those oddball flavors that I so rarely get, that I only remember how much I love it when I actually get it.
I dished up two bowls of ice cream, with the proper serving all measured out. I served it up and we dug in while watching Food Network (because…we love our Food Network!). One bite. That was all I needed to fall in love with this frozen treat. Honestly. WOW! First of all, the texture is perfect. Creamy, light, not gritty. Pure ice cream perfection. You’d never guess this was made with coconut milk. It is that perfectly balanced. But, my rave doesn’t stop there. FLAVOR! Holy cow. The flavors incorporated into the So Delicious Dairy Free No Sugar Added Butter Pecan Coconut Milk Frozen Dessert stand up and just dance with your taste buds. Dance. Maybe a tango. Maybe the conga. vanilla with butter and pecans…oh…it’s so good. You can really catch all those rich and amazing flavors. And the pecans bring this great crunch and texture to the creamy ice cream. And all of this…without any added sugar. You can’t argue with that. My roommate actually licked her bowl clean. I think this is her new favorite so far!

LOVE! That’s what this ice cream is all about. A dairy-free twist on a classic flavor! The So Delicious Dairy Free No Sugar Added Butter Pecan Coconut Milk Frozen Dessert is truly a pint of love. The flavors and texture are fantastic and amazing. And I am totally in love with it. It will take all my (currently non-existent) self-control not to devour the entire pint right out of the carton. It would be worth it though…
So Delicious…keep on making these amazing treats…because you certainly got my attention. No sugar added just proves that sugar free doesn’t mean flavor free. I am totally in love with you, my So Delicious people. Thank you!
