Summary:

Rich and creamy without the added sweeteners. Mint Chip was the favorite flavor for its bright, refreshing, and cool flavor. Vanilla won in the texture department with perfectly smooth and soft scoops.

I definitely don’t need to eat more sugar. From day one, I’ve had a sweet tooth. I’ve tried going without for months on end, but my yearning for sweet just doesn’t wane. Which is why I get very excited when products like So Delicious Dairy Free No Added Sugar Ice Cream emerge. It’s naturally-sweetened with erythritol and monk fruit extract, and contains just 1 gram of sugar per serving!

So Delicious No Sugar Added Dairy-Free Ice Cream / Frozen Dessert - Vegan

Unlike many no sugar added ice cream brands, So Delicious isn’t going for low calories. This is real ice cream made with rich coconut milk for a truly luxurious dessert. It comes in five four flavors: Vanilla, Chocolate, Mint Chip (pictured above), and Butter Pecan. Alas, the Toasted Coconut Chip flavor in the line-up shown below is being discontinued.

So Delicious No Sugar Added Dairy-Free Ice Cream / Frozen Dessert - Vegan

Mint Chip No Sugar Added Ice Cream

This is actually more like a mint chocolate “flake” ice cream, which makes it way better. Generous ribbons of chocolate wind throughout this naturally minty ice cream. The thinner shards of chocolate are much easier to eat when frozen (unlike thick chocolate chips) and meld more into the overall flavor.

This was hands down my favorite flavor as the cool mint taste works really well with the sweeteners. The texture was thick and rich, though it wasn’t quite as soft and smooth as the others. My ice cream scoop did a better job of breaking off large chunks of this no sugar added vegan ice cream rather than smoothly gliding through. Nonetheless, it melted on my tongue with a cool and creamy satisfaction that was almost refreshing. Next time I’m building a (low sugar) brownie sundae, this will definitely be a go-to ice cream.

Vanilla No Sugar Added Ice Cream

I wanted this to be my favorite as I’m a vanilla girl, and could really use a staple that doesn’t cause a sugar rush. That said, the texture was awesome. This is the smoothest and creamiest of the bunch. I seriously looked like an ice cream parlor jockey serving up perfect round scoops of this flavor.

For my taste buds, the sweeteners overpowered the delicate vanilla flavors a bit too much. However, the more I ate, the more I warmed up to it. If you aren’t accustomed to sweeteners like erythritol, then it may take some getting used to. Nonetheless, the amazing texture and low sugar benefit may cause this vanilla to make its way into my shopping cart in the future.

Butter Pecan No Sugar Added Ice Cream

Almost as soft and creamy as the Vanilla, the Butter Pecan was rich and filling – the way good ice cream should be. I’m a big fan of butter pecan, and really can’t get enough of the flavor. For that reason, I wished this one had a little more of that intense buttery flavor. Again, the sweeteners overpowered it a bit for me, but that didn’t stop me from sneaking spoonfuls throughout the day.

But I recommend sampling all of the flavors if you are looking for a good quality, low sugar, dairy-free ice cream. I tend to be very sensitive to certain tastes (I can taste stevia in anything!), and am sure that most people won’t notice the sweetener “flavor” as much as I do.

Chocolate No Sugar Added Ice Cream

The pure cocoa goodness on this rich coconut milk base will likely win over sugar-free chocoholics. I truly enjoyed the Chocolate flavor when topped with date caramel sauce or melted dark chocolate (to keep it low in added sugars), but on its own, the stevia and monk fruit notes were a bit too strong for my tastes when combined with cacao. That said, I would always reach for vanilla over chocolate. As you can see, there was barely any vanilla left by the time I took a picture of the two together!

    I dunno, Alisa, I am kind of with you on this one! And normally, I am someone who CAN stand stevia in things. I’ve had the chocolate and the vanilla from this bunch. I confess to buying the chocolate for an ice cream sundae party, so I probably missed what it actually tasted like by smothering it in candy ;) But the vanilla… it was just “ehh” and sort of fake-tasting for me.

    Unfortunately, I’ve only been able to find the vanilla at the Whole Foods where I live. I agree with Cara, it’s fair…I asked the Whole Foods to please stock some of the other flavors, but to no avail…would love to try the rest as I too have sugar problems.
