So Delicious Cashew Milk Ice Cream is a Creamy Dairy-Free Mainstay

76

In the past year, So Delicious Cashew Milk Ice Cream has stepped into the shadows, letting Oat Milk Ice Cream bask in the limelight. But it’s still one of the creamiest, most beloved dairy-free frozen desserts on the market, and it’s still available in seven decadent flavors.

So Delicious constantly redesigns their packaging, so my pictures below have old packaging. But the ice cream inside looks the same. For the look of the new packaging, see the product images with the ingredients and nutrition facts.

So Delicious Dairy Free Cashew Milk Ice Cream - so creamy, sweet and decadent, you won't believe it's vegan and soy-free!

Tasting Notes for So Delicious Dairy Free Cashew Milk Ice Cream

I’ve always enjoyed dairy-free ice cream – the many flavor nuances of different dreamy bases and the array of whole food ingredients. But my occasional treat escalated to full-blow, must-have cravings when So Delicious Cashew Milk Ice Cream hit the freezer aisle.

Their initial launch included five pint flavors, and over time, they added five more flavors. But recently they’ve scaled this product line back a bit, and now have a core line of seven pint flavors.

Very Vanilla

Interestingly enough, traditional vanilla and chocolate weren’t in the initial line-up of So Delicious cashew milk ice cream. Rather they came out in the second batch. The consistency of the vanilla is creamy and luxurious, without a speck of iciness, yet not overly heavy. The flavor is rich with a notable burst of sweet vanilla. It’s insanely versatile and will surely be a go to dairy-free ice cream for me.

Creamy Chocolate

Unlike most So Delicious goodies, this cashew milk ice cream lacked the wow factor for us. It had that wonderful creamy base, and was good, but our tasters agreed that it wasn’t the flavor they would likely repurchase. I think it would serve it’s purpose in a sundae or ice cream sandwich. It just needs something to jazz it up.

Chocolate Cookies ‘n’ Cream

And here’s that chocolate, all jazzed up! This flavor was a spoons down, decadent winner. Big chocolate cookie chunks throughout made this cashew milk ice cream a luxurious experience. No one could possibly guess is dairy free.

Snickerdoodle

As the first spoonful began to melt on my tongue, I thought “what’s snickerdoodle about th… ooohhh… there it is!” Those spot on cinnamon cookie flavors sneak up but then escalate into a full blown sugar rush. Over the top amazing! Generous bites of gluten-free snickerdoodle cookie dough even pop up periodically.

Salted Caramel Cluster

This flavor used to be the creamy cashew base layered with thick ribbons of dairy-free caramel and dotted with chocolate-covered whole cashews and cashew pieces. However, the reintroduced version lacked the chocolate-covered cashews. Instead it has thin drizzles of caramel, chocolate pieces and chunks of cashew. It’s still delicious in its own right with lots of interesting bits, but admittedly, we miss the original version.

Dark Chocolate Truffle

Passionately rich, denser and more intense than the others, this cashew milk ice cream flavor has a decadent chocoholic vibe, from organic fair trade cocoa, and ample dairy-free, soy-free chocolate shards.

Chocolate Drizzled Bananas Foster

Tony really liked this chocolate-covered banana delight. It’s definitely banana forward, but with a creaminess and indulgence level that makes it a true dairy-free ice cream instead of “nice cream.”

Discontinued Flavors

Over the years, So Delicious has discontinued their Cappuccino, Creamy Cashew (sniff, sniff), and Peachy Maple Pecan (still produced for Canada) Cashew Milk Ice Cream flavors.

Nothing else compares (for me)

When I thought I couldn’t have ice-cream again, I was devastated! Then came So-Delicious. The coconut-based flavors were OK (at least I could have ice-cream again) but then came the cashew-based flavors. I’m in heaven! I’m elated! I’m going to get too fat!! The flavors are great, and although the pints are a little pricey, they are worth it when you are having an ice-cream hankering fit. Nothing else quite compares!!

These people are exaggerating, but not lying. This ice cream is super good.

I mean when people say dairy free ice cream tastes the same, or even better, I’m like stop lying. However, I still bought the chocolate cookies and cream because dairy kills me. I am amazed at this ice cream to be honest. Yes, you can still taste that difference, but the cookies part really distracts your brain from that taste and it’s so good. I will definitely be sticking with this brand. So so good.

Would benefit from MORE caramel and LESS chunks of chocolate. Otherwise perfect. Excessive chocolate splinters impede the enjoyment of the product.

I LOVE ICE CREAM!!!! I recently went dairy free to see how it affects me. I figured that would help me slow down on the ice cream intake… and then I found So Delicious Salted Caramel Cluster ??. It is probably my favorite ice cream flavor EVER. It’s rich and creamy and I think I’m in trouble!!!

Creamy to the end

Ice cream has to be creamy all the way to the bottom of the carton regardless how many times you’ve served from the container. This ice cream is great–creamy to the last lick. Even the vanilla is great without sauces or fruit on top, and it allows me to meet everyone’s flavor preferences. The only time this ice cream has crystals is when it’s thawed too much and refrozen. But that’s not the ice cream’s fault. The only way this could be improved is to create a sugar free variety.

So delicious is the best non-dairy ice cream I have ever eaten. Highly recommend it.
I enjoyed it while vacationing in Florida – I live in Maine and cannot find it. I am going
to all the local grocery stores to see if they can order it. I could not get enough of
the salted caramel.

    • I just found them last night at the hy-vee on 151st and blackbob in Olathe. As snickerdoodle was AMAZING! And exactly what we’ve been missing from our Paleo diet. Perfection!

  3. This is one of the best ice-creams I’ve had since going dairy free. I love my ice-cream and thought my life would be without forever…..so sad. Then I found out about So-Delicious brand. Every type they make is wonderful and satisfying – creamy, smooth, everything that true, rich ice-cream should be. It’s not ice-milky. It’s so creamy and delicious. Great name for the products too!! The Salted Caramel is divine as is the Decadent Chocolate. The soy-milk types of ice-cream are wonderful too. Try them all and find your favorite. Now I can have ice-cream anytime I want it…..which is all the time! Thanks, So Delicious. You’ve created a life-long fan in me!!

  4. I can only find these at Whole Foods 45 minutes away from home. It was well worth my efforts to pack it and take some snickerdoodle home with me a few weeks ago! Creamy, slightly sweet with believable chunks of snickerdoodle cookie dough – what’s not to love? IMO, this is vastly preferrable to coconut milk, rice milk, and almond milk based non-dairy ice creams.

  5. My Kroger just started carrying these and while there are a little expensive, they are not bad if you can catch them on sale and pace yourself! When I ate dairy, coffee ice cream was always a favorite so I started with the Cappuccino flavor. It was good but did not seem markedly better than some of the other non-cashew So Delicious flavors. Then I tried the Snickerdoodle and it seems like the best ice cream I have ever had. It is a little bit crispy with cinnamon and the chunks of cookie dough are delicious. My husband will even eat it and he is usually wary about non-dairy products. 🙂

  6. This concoction is so wonderful, it has helped turn my lacto ovo boyfriend off dairy ice cream! He’s never really liked any of the non-dairy options before. So thankful!!!

    Favorites are the Snickerdoodle and the Chocolate crunch one!

  7. I just got the cappuccino one, since I’ve been having a tiramisu-like craving lately. OMG! This is sooooooo good! And it’s so simply-made! I would lessen the cinnamon they put in there, but man, I love what I’m tasting.

    Only downside is the price; but ice cream supposed to be a once-in-a-long-while treat anyways.

  9. I tried the Snickerdoodle one last week and found it amazingly delicious! I will look for one of the other flavors when I go shopping tomorrow – The Chocolate Truffle sounds good to me! Actually, they all do, but I think I want to try this one next!

    I think I might even like this ice cream better than the So Delicious Coconut Ice Cream – which used to be my favorite non-dairy ice cream!

  10. Omg! I can’t find that cashew milk salty caramel clusters anywhere. I got it once from my local Target next day sold out and never seen it again. I need this in my life now.. Lol

  11. I am working on my review of this AMAZING stuff! Just have to second everything Alisa says about this product. Unreal!!! In love!

  12. ALISA! After your review, I went hunting and found it at Sprouts. All I can say is AMAZING! Even the dairy eaters loved it and not in the condescending, “oh this is nice for you since you can’t have dairy” way. Decadent, rich, delicious but not heavy. Thx again, you haven’t steered me wrong ever.

      • Found them today at Whole Foods! So excited! 🙂 I bought every flavor except for Cappuccino (I’m not a coffee person).

          • Thank you for the warning! I won’t try that flavor first then, haha 😀 Any suggestion on which flavor to try first though? I plan to finally try one of the flavors this weekend (I’m an obsessive meal planner, sorry), and I’m not sure which one to start with… although I was thinking about the Snickerdoodle one.

          • I’m all about starting with the “baseline” flavor first to get a feel for the product – which would be the Creamy Cashew (which is now my go-to staple!) – but, you can’t go wrong with the Snickerdoodle either!

          • Excellent advice! I will go with the Creamy Cashew or Snickerdoodle then, to begin. I’m too excited about the ice cream, haha 😀 Thank you for always providing genuine reviews and advice, Alisa!
