In the past couple of years, 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 So Delicious hasn’t abandoned their cashew product line. In fact, they introduce a new flavor or two each year.
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.
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. Over time, some flavors have come and gone, but this is the line-up you can currently find in the freezer section. I’ve included some of our tasting notes, but please do leave your own unbiased star rating and review below!
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.

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.
Ingredients: cashewmilk (filtered water, cashews), sugar, creme cookie (cane sugar, tapioca flour, rice flour, palm oil, cocoa [processed with alkali], organic tapioca syrup, cassava flour, cocoa, potato flour, salt, sunflower lecithin, natural flavor, baking soda, xanthan gum), organic coconut oil, cocoa (processed with alkali), pea protein, sea salt, locust bean gum, guar gum, natural flavor. contains cashew, coconut.

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.
Ingredients: cashewmilk (filtered water, cashews), cane sugar, snickerdoodle dough (brown sugar, rice flour, vegetable oil [palm, canola], water, sugar, tapioca dextrin, guar gum, natural flavors, sea salt, cinnamon, baking soda), organic coconut oil, organic tapioca syrup, pea protein, cinnamon, sea salt, organic gum acacia, guar gum, natural flavor, locust bean gum. contains cashew, coconut.

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.
Ingredients: cashewmilk (filtered water, cashews), cane sugar, caramel sauce (organic tapioca syrup, water, pea protein, organic molasses, natural flavor, organic cocoa butter, sodium citrate, salt, pectin), chocolate chip (cane sugar, organic coconut oil, cocoa, chocolate liquor, natural vanilla flavor), organic coconut oil, organic tapioca syrup, roasted cashews (cashews, canola oil), pea protein, sea salt, guar gum, natural flavor, locust bean gum. contains cashew, coconut.

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.
Ingredients: cashewmilk (filtered water, cashews), sugar, organic fudge sauce (organic cane sugar, water, organic cocoa [processed with alkali], organic tapioca starch, organic chocolate liquor), organic coconut oil, chocolate flake (cane sugar, organic coconut oil, cocoa, chocolate liquor, natural vanilla flavor), organic cocoa (processed with alkali), organic tapioca syrup, pea protein, sea salt, locust bean gum, guar gum. contains cashew, coconut.

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.”
Ingredients: cashewmilk (filtered water, cashews), cane sugar, organic coconut oil, banana swirl (banana puree, filtered water, brown sugar, organic cane sugar, corn starch, caramel color, natural flavor, ascorbic acid, locust bean gum, cinnamon), chocolate drizzle (cane sugar, organic coconut oil, cocoa, chocolate liquor, natural vanilla flavor), organic tapioca syrup, pea protein, natural flavor, sea salt, locust bean gum, guar gum. contains cashew, coconut.

Peanut Butter Brownie
They snuck this flavor onto store shelves in 2021. smooth peanut butter cashewmilk ice cream with brownie bits. A new take on the classic peanut butter cup!
Ingredients: cashewmilk (filtered water, cashews), cane sugar, organic coconut oil, peanuts, rice flour, organic tapioca syrup, peanut oil, invert sugar, palm oil, cocoa, pea protein, sea salt, cocoa (processed with alkali), chocolate liquor, canola oil, guar gum, locust bean gum, salt, natural flavor, cocoa butter, vanilla extract. contains cashew, coconut, peanut.

What Others Are Saying ...
I am VERY picky on my ice cream and my chocolate! (I am 5 mos into the plant based diet.) I don’t like coconut but I gave a try of 6 different companies & their coconut ice cream, including Trader Joes. With my taste buds they were all terrible. Too sweet and I could taste too much of the coconut. I thought a find would be hopeless but then I tried your Double Chocolate delight dipped bars…… oh my gosh, perfect!! I highly recommend trying this!!!! I’m looking forward to trying the Dark Chocolate Truffle!
I have looked and looked and So Delicious is the best
So Delicious cashew milk non dairy ice cream is the best I have found. It is thick and creamy, and the flavors are amazing. I love the snickerdoodle and salted caramel cluster the best. I just wish all of the flavors were equally available!
The best dairy free ice cream ever!
I love this stuff! Very vanilla is my favorite as I can’t have chocolate so please don’t ever get rid of it or change it up as it’s perfect the way it is. It has so much yummy flavor that it doesn’t need anything else. Just eat it plain. Thank you so much for making this alternative:)
wishing for more and larger containers and sugar free
this is the best “ice cream” I can find but I wish it was sugar free or low sugar as I am a diabetic and allergic to almonds.
I love it
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.
Better than real ice cream!!!!
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.
Salted caramel is my go to flavor
Just give it a try. You won’t go back to regular ice cream!!
