Review & Giveaway : Turtle Mountain Chocolate Chip and Cookie Dough Coconut Milk Ice Cream & Strawberry Coconut Milk Kefir

After reviewing Turtle Mountain's So Delicious Coconut Milk Minis (which really were so delicious, by the way), I had high expectations for pretty much every item in the line. Everything I did end up trying was even better than I anticipated! In addition to the Coconut Milk Minis I also sampled Turtle Mountain's Purely Decadent Cookie Dough Ice Cream Made with Coconut Milk and their So Delicious Strawberry Coconut Milk Kefir (both items are vegan and gluten free).

Purely Decadent Cookie Dough Ice Cream Made with Coconut Milk



This ice cream was rich, flavorful and creamy. Like the So Delicious Coconut Milk Minis, the texture, consistency and taste are close to that of dairy ice cream, but with an added coconut milk flavor. While soy milk based ice creams can sometimes be a little unpleasant due to a subtle, lingering soy flavor, the coconut flavor in this Purely Decadent selection actually contributes nicely to the taste. This ice cream also doesn't suffer the typical problems of a rice milk based ice cream which can sometimes be a little icey and hard. In contrast, this coconut milk ice cream is amazingly soft and creamy. I had been craving cookie dough ice cream for years, but had never been able to find a suitable non-dairy version until now, Purely Decadent Cookie Dough Ice Cream is definitely a new staple treat for me!

Strawberry Coconut Milk Kefir



Kefir is typically made with cultured milk, but this coconut milk, non-dairy version is very yogurt-y and wonderful. This drink has the slight tanginess and thickness typical of a yogurt smoothie and also has the added benefit of containing probiotics. Like the other coconut milk products in this line, the product has a subtle coconut milk taste which blends with the flavor of the drink nicely. Prior to trying out this drink, I had never tried kefir, but I absolutely loved this! The flavor was great and I loved the slight tanginess of the yogurt. The drink was also very refreshing and the flavor of the strawberry was very natural (not artificial tasting in the slightest) and the drink even contains some small chunks/pieces of strawberry. Delicious!
