Raw Ice Cream Company
HELLO AND HAPPY MONDAY!!
I WANTED TO SHARE WITH YOU ONE OF MY FAVE NEW YORK BASED VEGAN ICE CREAM COMPANY CALLED THE RAW ICE CREAM COMPANY!!
I HAD THE CHANCE TO TRY THIS AMAZING RAW ICE CREAM MONTHS BACT AT THE VEGETARIAN FOOD FESTIVAL IN THE NYC AND FROM MY FIRST TASTE OF THE CINNAMON VANILLA..
I WAS HOOKED!!
I FINALLY TRACKED THEM DOWN AND THEY HAND DELIVERED ME A WHOLE CASE OF THEIR AMAZING RAW VEGAN ICE CREAM
Today vegan ice cream is ubiquitous, but many brands still miss the mark when it comes to a high quality vegan ice cream. Many are still flavorless, weird, bland, “meh”, ok, and every other negative connotation you can think of.. until brands like the Raw Ice Cream Company came about!!
WHY RAW ICE CREAM:
They chose raw ingredients because heating destroys the natural enzymes found in food and raw forms offer the most abundant nutrients. Raw foods contains the natural enzymes which aid in digestion, which frees the body’s own enzymes from doing all the work!!
WHAT’S IN IT:
RAW COCONUT MEAT
Light whipped texture
Simple straightforward ingredients
Doesn’t melt fast
I’M HAVING A HARD TIME TRYING TO PAINT AN ACCURATE PICTURE OF THIS SPECTACULAR VEGAN ICE CREAM.. AS IT IS JUST THAT GOOD!!
To start off with some light background info, I’m a vanilla kind of gal, I don’t hate chocolate, it’s just too rich for my taste 🙂
I also LOVE anything with cinnamon in it
(favorite cake is carrot)
What I enjoyed most about this the Raw Ice Cream Company brand was that their flavors are super rich and creamy and almost reminds me of pudding or better yet..
old school frozen whip cream!!
For some odd reason, many moons ago I would love to freeze whip cream and eat it like ice cream lol..
I know, gross.
With that in mind, the texture and consistency of the ice cream strangely reminds me of that!
It literally melts in mouth, leaves your taste-buds on their toes, forcing you back for one more bite haha
The Cinnamon Vanilla was not only my favorite because its vegan, vanilla, cinnamon, reminds me of whip cream, but because it also reminded me of ..
CINNAMON TOAST CRUNCH
(was my fave as a child, I know.. gross)
I don’t prefer to reference old eating habits, but I find its a positive message to show that once upon a time I too ate processed foods, but that through obtaining the right knowledge I was able to remove them from my diet.
Today, you couldn’t pay me to eat a bowl of processed garbage..
The raw “Vanilla”, which is more my cup of tea was pretty impressive just like the Cinnamon Vanilla!!
I felt as if I could taste the raw vanilla bean!!
Simple flavor, beautifully done!!
I of course decided to get all fancy and top mine with a crumbled vegan Spicy Mexican Snickerdoodle cookie from Om Nom Nom Cookies – Om Nom Nom Review
In addition to not being a chocolate fan, I’ve never been a huge mint chocolate chip person either. Growing up my brother would devour it by the cartons and it was always his go to flavor.. I’m sure it still is! The typical prrocessed mint chip ice cream tends to be bright green, full of chemicals, dairy, and all sorts of awfulness.
BUT THIS MINT CHIP ICE CREAM..
Was much more rich in flavor, creamier, and offered tons of chips with each bite.. If I wasn’t a HUGE cinnamon kind of gal, I would have unequivocally gravitated more towards this flavor as the texture of Raw Ice Cream brand really complimented this flavor and made it stand out!!
IF YOU’RE A MINT CHIP PERSON.. THIS FLAVOR ALONE MAY CHANGE YOUR LIFE..
As I’ve said over and over, I’ve never been a big chocolate person, I know, I know, weird haha.. I also don’t like pasta either.. but that’s another story
Back to this ice cream though!
I thought that this chocolate blend was super even more richer and creamier (thanks to the cacao) than the others and was reminiscent of the old school fudge pudding pops we all know and loved as kids!! The ice cream literally melts in your mouth and is quite filling!!
