I have my last undergraduate class tomorrow (yay!), but summer has been on my mind for weeks now. Hence why my trip home this past weekend revolved around this lovely treat above…okay, and because my dear little sister came home for the first time in a full year after studying abroad; but that’s another story.
Really though, warm weather and ice cream just go together, right? Being lactose intolerant really isn’t that big of an interference for me personally, but the real issue is that most ice creams these days (at least store-bought styles) contain a plethora of preservatives and more often than not, gluten. So ice cream purchases are sort of a big and exciting deal for me :). Luckily, Luna and Larry\’s Coconut Bliss Organic ice cream is made from a base of naturally rich coconut milk and simply sweetened with agave syrup making it 100% vegan, gluten, preservative, and soy free, and most importantly delicious. And the cartons are just charming, yes?
Really though, you have to try this…it’s a little on the pricey side (I found it in a natural health food store for $6.50), but it’s worth it if your like me and you don’t normally get to enjoy. I had the Vanilla Island flavor and I topped it with blackberries and some raw honey my sister brought home from Paris. Surprisingly I got three servings out of this baby, which is saying a lot for me. The ingredients listed in Vanilla Island are: Organic Coconut Milk (Organic Coconut, Water, Guar Gum), Organic Agave Syrup, Organic Fair Trade Vanilla Extract, Organic Fair Trade Vanilla Beans.
Luna and Larry’s story is super cute and inspiring too, so take look.
Have you seen this ice cream before? I had not – so glad I found it. 🙂
P & L,
