I'm totally in love with Turtle Mountain's So Delicious Coconut Almond Minis. These chocolate dipped ice cream bars are encrusted generously with crunchy almond pieces and are hands down the best dairy free ice cream that I've ever had! I've been extremely curious to try out some of the new Turtle Mountain coconut milk products, and wow wow wow, these did not disappoint!
Rather than your average soy or rice milk ice cream base, these bars are made using a coconut milk base, resulting in a smoother texture that tastes much more clean and pure. While I do love So Delicious's "Purely Decadent" soy based ice creams (cherry nirvana and cookie dough are my favorites), I think the coconut milk is actually more agreeable on the palate. The ice cream has a delicate coconut flavor and the texture is smooth and light. The chocolate coating is thick and crunchy and the almonds add a wonderful flavor and textural component.
I would definitely recommend this product to anyone, but especially those on a vegan or lactose free diet. The size is just perfect for a treat or dessert (not too large and not too small).
