Cashewtopia Gelato from Organic Nectars!
Shared by Rebecca Gilbert
In honor of National Ice Cream month (July), this week’s feature is… Cashewtopia Gelato, or raw vegan ice cream, from Organic Nectars!!
I am absolutely in love with Organic Nectars’ Cashewtopia Gelato… which is a fancy name for raw vegan ice cream made from cashews! Have you ever tried raw vegan ice cream? Did you even know such a fabulous vegan treat existed? If the answer is no, you are in for a delightfully yummy surprise! Organic Nectars’ raw vegan ice cream is rich, creamy, and tastes just like ice cream! You easily could fool your omnivore friends.
I first tried Organic Nectars’ Cashewtopia raw vegan ice cream at the New York City Vegetarian Food Festival last year. I was mystified by the rich, milky texture that is absolutely raw, vegan and 100% dairy and casein-free! Cashewtopia is a great “ice cream” option for people suffering from dairy or soy allergies. It’s dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free, trans-fat free, and free from all refined sugars. (It’s sweetened with agave).
I purchased this raw vegan ice cream at the Whole Foods Market in Pittsburgh. If you don’t see the Organic Nectars products in your area, you can purchase from their webstore: http://shop.organicnectars.com/ Bonus: they’re offering consumers FREE product for helping to get the brand into new retailers. YUM! What a great reward for helping to bring a delicious new product into your area.
