Coconut Bliss vegan/dairy-free ice cream review

I generally avoid dairy but I love ice cream.  The soy and rice ice creams are frankly GROSS. I was so happy to find a coconut milk alternative.  My favorite is Coconut Bliss dark chocolate non-dairy frozen dessert.

Coconut Bliss

The ingredients: organic coconut milk, organic agave syrup, organic fair trade cocoa, organic vanilla extract.  Simple and delicious.  It tastes a little coconut-y at first but gets more and more chocolate-y as you eat it.

Dark Chocolate Coconut Bliss

A pint is about $6 which has four 1/2 cup servings at 220 calories a piece.  More "health-conscious" grocery stores carry it. 

I haven't tried most of the other flavors but I can tell you: don't get the mint flavor, it tasted like soap!  From now on I'm sticking with ol' reliable here.

Someday soon I'm going to try to make my own paleo version of this ice cream with honey or stevia as sweeteners instead of agave (agave is NOT PALEO and very high in fructose).
