Summary:

These coconut cream-based ice cream pints feature innovative flavors using simple ingredients. Out of the two that I tried, one was a total hit. The Dulce No Leche was perfect. It had a lightly flavored ice cream base that let the stretchy, chewy caramel take center stage. The caramel also boasted a spot on sweet and salty balance. The Horchata was lovely as a basic vanilla ice cream, but unfortunately it didn't offer the warmer flavors that I was expecting. However, the texture of both though was rich, creamy, luscious, and not the least bit icy. I definitely hope to try more Jawea flavors and enjoy the Dulce No Leche again!

The creative flavors and bright packaging immediately set Jawea Dairy-Free Frozen Desserts apart from the rest, and caught my eye as I browsed the ice cream aisle. Once I realized they were dairy-free, vegan, AND made with simple ingredients, I immediately scooped up two pints.

Jawea is a New York based brand that sells their pints along the east coast and also ships them to customers nationwide.

Their coconut cream-based frozen dessert flavors are “inspired by adventure”, which shows in their somewhat “wild” ingredient lists. To create each unique variety, they use pure flavors, like Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla, Roasted Vietnamese Cinnamon, Maldon Sea Salt, Thai Chili, and Cold Brew Coffee.

Tasting Notes for Jawea Dairy-Free Frozen Desserts

Jawea is currently available in five unique flavors, and thus far I’ve tried the following.

Horchata

For that classic horchata flavor, Jawea uses rice flour along with the vanilla and cinnamon noted above. I’ve never tried horchata, so I didn’t really know what to expect. But once opened, I noticed the beautiful spiced specks, and was prepared for a warm flavor rush.

Unfortunately, I found this flavor a little flat. The spice was surprisingly muted, and gave way to a simple vanilla ice cream flavor. It’s tasty and has a lovely creamy texture, but more plain than I had been anticipating. Nonetheless, it would be great on top of brownies, to garnish fruit crumbles, or in a float!

Dulce No Leche

Where the Horchata left off in flavor, the Dulce No Leche picked up. This salted caramel swirled ice cream is dreamy! It’s perfectly sweet and salty with a truly satisfying finish. The coconut cream base is rich and decadent, yet light enough in flavor to let the caramel shine.

And that crazy caramel swirl really won my heart! It has a strange chewiness that I loved and just enough salt to balance the sweetness. This is a flavor that I would definitely buy again and again.
