Ice cream … reinvented. That is essentially what Snow Monkey has done with their new vegan ice cream.
This banana-based treat is completely vegan, gluten free, dairy free, and nut free. It is also packed with 20 grams of protein, antioxidants, and fiber. So … we’re thinking that eating ice cream for breakfast, in this case, is completely acceptable.
While several companies have come out with non-dairy alternatives in recent months, Snow Monkey has definitely taken the healthy alternative to the next level. According to the Snow Monkey website, “If mother nature didn’t make it, we didn’t use it.” If that doesn’t get you screaming for ice cream, then I don’t know what will! Described as having a smoothie-like taste and texture, the plant-based ice cream comes in two flavors, Goji Bery and Cacao.
Snow Monkey’s addition of the two new offerings is a further indication of the staying power of the dairy-free ice cream market. The rise comes as a result of Americans searching for healthier alternatives, as well as rising knowledge of environmental issues linked to factory farms and animal welfare concerns. Plant-based options have been surging and consumers can now choose from ice creams, protein powders, coffee drinks, and frozen desserts … all without the dairy. Now, more than ever, eating healthy has never tasted so good!
Other companies that have also taken notice and made the financially smart decision to add plant-based offering to their ice cream brands include Breyers, Talenti, Häagen-Dazs, and Ben & Jerry. It seems safe to say that this exciting turn in the market is no longer just a trend, it is officially here to stay and vegans and non-vegans alike can enjoy the benefits!
