Do you cook for someone who because of diet restrictions are dairy free? Or maybe you yourself are and you’re constantly looking for dairy free desserts to satisfy that sweet tooth? I have just the perfect dessert for you that is completely dairy free, cold, sweet and oh So Delicious.
Between my husband’s gluten intolerance and lactose issues, there are days he feels like there’s nothing left for him to eat. I also have a child who can not eat a lot of dairy, so he just stays away from things like milk and ice cream. And come summertime when everyone around them is eating ice cream or whipping up smoothies, it’s very frustrating when they want to indulge too! Summer equals ice cream and milkshakes am I right?
Don’t let the picture of the “milk” shake above fool you. It’s all dairy free thanks to the availability of So Delicious products at our local Randalls store.
To make this milkshake, I picked up several So Delicious products, one being their coconut vanilla ice cream. Here’s how to make it. (This makes two small milkshakes.)
Step one: Peel half a banana and put it in the blender.
Step two: Pour the entire pint of So Delicious Coconut Vanilla ice cream into the blender.
Step three: Pour 1/2 a cup of So Delicious coconut milk into blender.
Step four: Blend for about one minute!
Step five: Top with So Delicious CocoWhip (dairy free cream topping).
Step six: For some color and fun, add a few sprinkles.
Easy peasy! This received rave reviews from my family – those who can have dairy and of course, those who can’t.
I was very impressed with the taste and quality of the So Delicious products. The ice cream has a great texture and the flavor was amazing. I know it can be hit or miss sometimes with anything dairy free, but I promise you won’t be disappointed!
So Delicious products are verified by the Non GMO Project’s Product Verification Program (PVP), which is a great thing to know for those of you who try very hard to stay away from genetically modified food. With more and more consumers becoming educated about the food they purchase, it’s good to know that stores like Randalls are providing us with options.
