Dairy-Free Summer Delights!

by • July 17, 2013 • 0 Comments

Summer usually includes tasty cold treats like ICE CREAM!! This smooth, creamy and cold confection is loved by so many, but what about those of us who can’t/don’t want have dairy? There are more and dairy free options popping up everywhere and I couldn’t be more excited!  Here are my top dairy free treats to enjoy during the summer.

1. So Delicious Dairy Free Frozen Treats so-delicious-ice-cream

Sometimes dairy free ice creams tend be a little watery and icy as opposed to smooth and creamy like the dairy filled stuff. However, So Delicious has created one of the creamiest coconut  and almond based non-dairy ice cream that I have tasted.  The coconut-based confections do have mild coconut undertones, but they are subtle and in my opinion, enhance the flavor. If you’re not into coconut  at all then opt for the almond based frozen treats instead, these have rich and nutty undertones. Yum!

2.     Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss CB-PintDarkChoc-sm

Like So Delicious, Luna & Larry’s has created a diary free treat that is absolutely delicious. The dark chocolate flavor is my favorite, it is so smooth & creamy. This ice cream is surprisingly much lighter than regular dairy-based chocolate ice creams and might not leave you feeling so heavy afterwards. I also love that many of the ingredients are organic & natural. No extremely processed ingredients means a happier body for me! :)

3. 365 Frozen Fruit Bars 365 lime bars

I do admit, I have a soft spot for anything with lime and cold summer treats are no exception.  Whole Food’s 365 Lime Frozen Fruit Bars are so refreshing for those hot summer days. I love how you can grab one and eat it on the go. They’re also great to have at barbeques or bring to the beach, no messiness!

4. Chilled Fruit strawberries

Sometimes it’s best to keep things simple.  A bowl of your favorite chilled fruit could be the perfect ending to a great summer  meal or just a delicious sweet treat. A few great summer fruits are:

  • Strawberries
  • Pineapple
  • Peaches
  • Raspberries
  • Blackberries
  • Watermelon
  • Grapefruit
  • Melon
  • Lemons
  • Plums

Here’s a quick & easy recipe:

  • Halve 2 cups of strawberries
  • Slice one whole peach
  • ½ cup of raspberries
  • ½ lemon

Combine together in a bowl & pour the juice of half a lemon all over. Chill in the fridge for a few hours and enjoy!

What are some of your favorite summer treats? Let us know!

Peace, Love, & Coconuts
