Ice Cream in February and a Giveaway

February 5, 2010

****The giveaway is now over but thanks for checking out my site! And feel free to post some delicious ice cream flavor ideas!****

Brrrr. It’s cold outside.

The nice thing about winter is that you are able to be nice and warm, snuggled up with a blanket, on your couch, during downtime. I love this about rainy, cold days. I always feel so safe nestled indoors with a good book, a boyfriend, a movie, (and/)or ice cream!

 
This is a new-to-me ice cream I stumbled upon at Whole Foods.
from their website:
Ingredients: Cashew Milk (Organic Cashews, Filtered Water), Coconut Cream*, Organic Agave Nectar, Organic Chocolate Chips (Sugar, Coconut Oil, Cocoa, Soy Lecithin, Vanilla), Natural Mint Extract, Sea Salt, Organic Guar Gum
*Organically grown
Contains a trace amount of Soy Lecithin
 
I give this healthy alternative a 5 out of 5. The taste, great, and the texture was just like that of regular ice cream. The rich and creamy cashew and coconut base creates a perfect ice cream replacement. And the ingredients match up with my healthy, clean-eating standards. Oh, and the chocolate chips in there; divine.

So, what is better than eating ice cream in February? Well, making ice cream in February, of course!
