A while back I was contacted by Blue Mountain Organics to see if I would be interested in reviewing their newest line of cashew based ice creams. I am already a big fan of raw desserts, so after one look at the ingredients, I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed.
From their website:
• Rich and Creamy
• Dairy-Free, Vegan
• USDA Certified Organic
• Raw, More Digestible
• Soy-Free, Gluten-Free, GMO-Free
• Agave Sweetened, Low Glycemic Index
• A Peanut-Free and Dairy-Free Facility
When the ice cream arrived, I had the choice of 3 flavors to dive into: Cappuccino, Mint Cacao Chip and Chocolate. Of course, I went straight for the Mint Cacao Chip flavor because it’s my favorite, and I’m not too fond of Chocolate Ice Cream in general…plus my husband was eying the Cappuccino.
We each dug into our flavor of choice and met each others’ eyes with an astonished look. This ice cream wasn’t only good, it was phenomenal. Their Mint Cacao Chip was in fact the best mint chocolate ice cream I have ever tasted, and since mint chocolate chip is my all-time favorite ice cream flavor, I have tasted a LOT. The ice cream itself was not overly minty and the cacao nibs pebbled throughout were pure gastronomical genius–the perfect balance of deep dark chocolate flavor with a refreshing mint based finish.
My husband was equally enamored with the Cappuccino flavor and we both agreed it had a very pleasant, not too overpowering coffee flavor which would be perfect in a mocha flavored milkshake. I was about to pass on the Chocolate altogether, but after trying the other flavors and falling head over heels, I couldn’t resist a taste. And then another. I was giddy to find that I even enjoyed their chocolate flavor. Since Blue Mountain only uses raw ingredients and agave as a sweetener, it didn’t taste artificial or overly chocolatey at all. Just right in my opinion. We easily crushed those three containers in just two days, and have been craving more ever since. You can order yours here if you’d like to see for yourself just how delicious this ice cream is.
