One of the perks of running a big vegan site like VegKitchen is receiving all kinds of goodies to review. One such special treat arrived recently in its own little foam reusable cooler. Blue Mountain Organics makes a line of raw cashew-based ice creams, and I'm here to tell you that they are amazing.
I got to sample the chocolate, mint cacao, and cappuccino (the latter was my favorite, as I'm a coffee addict), and though I don't have much of a sweet tooth, I found them all incredibly delectable, and so did my family. Come to think of it, that's perhaps why they appealed to me so much — these cashew ice creams aren't as cloyingly sweet as other ice creams, vegan or not. They are agave sweetened and so, have a low glycemic index. They're also soy-free, gluten-free, and of course, dairy free. If you're OK with tree nuts, then you're good to go! The other flavors available are strawberry, vanilla, mango and date cream.
While you're on the Blue Mountain Organics site, explore their array of natural and raw products, including nut and seed butters, dried fruits, super foods, and more. If you'd like to find a retailer that carries their delicious raw cashew ice cream, contact customer [email protected] for information.
