my new addiction

Ok, I don't usually get into product reviews and endorsements, but MAN! I just had to make sure you all know about this awesome, super duper yummy ice cream!

Don and I have decided to officially evict sugar out of our household. Which is so great and I am amazed that he is totally on board and we are loving being sugar free. The only problem is I absolutely love LOVE ice cream! We have an ice cream maker and have made our own, but when you want in NOW.. well, then there is a problem.

We have made some pretty easy and simple sorbets by blending up frozen fruit in the food processor.. that will often do in a pinch. But, sometimes you just need some ooy-gooy creaminess...

That happened to me yesterday.. I wanted chocolate, creamy ice cream. So I went down to the natural food store to look around and see if they had anything chocolaty without sugar in it.

That is when I found Coconut Bliss. It has no sugar in it at all! They use agave nectar to sweeten it and the coconut milk helps to make it sweet also. It is vegan, gluten free and low glycemic. YAY!

And it is SOOOOO good. I mean really, really good. Way better than regular ice cream! I am so in love. This could be a problem!

But, I am happy to have found a healthier alternative to my one true addiction!

And, I think you should run on down to Whole Foods or your local natural food store and get you some!

I, too, just discovered this at VCottage last week (it's not at WF). I've been on the elim diet for 5 months for Indie's allergies and have foregone ice cream, my favoritest food, until now....! It's pricey but totally worth it. The mint choc chip is fantastic. :)

Oh my! That sounds really good. I have some agave syrup here, I never thought to use it to try to make icecream. I wonder whether it's available in the UK...

I'm, an ice-cream connoisseur so I'll have to hunt this stuff down! We make our own as well. No matter what I may try to cut out of our diets there just HAS to be room for ice cream!!!!
Thanks for visiting my blog!

Let me correct that---the WF on Powers doesn't carry it; you must have gone to the north store..?

Ooooo, I've been looking for this stuff! (Haven't seen it at the north WF). Someone else recommended it to me, too, as we're also trying to reduce sugar. Yea!
