About a year ago, So Delicious launched their line of cashew milk “ice creams” and the results couldn’t have been any sweeter. Their debut flavors: Cappuccino, Creamy Cashew, Dark Chocolate Truffle, Salted Caramel Cluster, and Snickerdoodle have gotten rave reviews by dairy-free lovers everywhere. Striking a balance between the less creamy almond milk desserts and the almost icy coconut milk desserts, cashew milk frozen dessert is a decadent treat and now that the weather is warming in the northeast US, it’s time to stock up (and share!). Heaven in a pint container, the Salted Caramel Cluster has sweet ribbons of caramel twisted throughout the decadent cashew milk and is dotted with cashews enrobed in chocolate. Sweet and salty, this mixture is thoughtfully combined to highlight the natural, almost buttery pecan flavor of the “ice cream”. Returning to shelve snow, after selling out due to insane popularity…get it before it’s gone again. What sorcery must take place for such rich and bold flavor with only 9 grams of fat per half cup; not a single gram from an animal source? Let’s leave that to the wizards at So Delicious and see what they concoct next! Creamy Cashew, seemingly simplistic yet increasingly complex – like a fine wine it reveals layers of flavor with each taste of the spoon. Pairing well with fresh berries, this dessert is so versatile and can easily convert to a “milkshake” base, or be used as a layer in a dairy free “ice cream” cake, with a crunchy cookie and caramel filling. Snickerdoodle is what it seems; a gluten free version of cinnamon cookie flavor and bits of cookie throughout. This one is highly accented by adding a touch of maple syrup and a dollop of CocoWhip…don’t judge…try it! None of the flavors are ever grainy – unlike some cashew milk products the makings of So Delicious are insanely smooth and creamy. And the attention to detail is praise-worthy; Dark Chocolate Truffle contains shavings of vegan, soy free chocolate seated in a punch-in-the-face rich chocolate “ice cream”. Use any of these flavors, including their creamy, aromatic Cappuccino to create a dairy free affogato that any coffee lover will swoon over.
So Delicious has impeccable timing and always faithful to the ever-chatty fan base they have through social media, they’ve graced the lactose intolerant crowd with three new flavors. Chocolate Cookies n’ Cream, which is certified gluten free, and makes the most amazing non-dairy “milkshake” when combined with their shelf stable cashew milk; and their other new flavor, Creamy Chocolate which speaks for itself by name; a creamy and smooth chocolate “ice cream” that is everything a dairy free consumer misses about dairy milk ice cream, with all of the flavor chocolate lovers seek in a dessert. Their new Very Vanilla is a fresh, vibrant vanilla is great on waffles, paired with fruit, accompanying pie or just on its own. Staying true to their carrageenan-free philosophy and always working to improve their product line, these new flavors are clearly perfection in harmony with the original launch. Banana splits will never be the same with innovation like this…and this dairy free consumer couldn’t be more pleased. Having set the industry standard in allergy testing, this is a brand that cares enough to ensure food safety for those who live in a daily life and death situation with food allergies. They are very active in social media and respond to their fans likes and dislikes with grace, believing that mistakes are opportunities to learn and improve.
