Seeing new dairy-free ice cream brands pop up in the grocery store is always exciting, so when I spotted this Frozen Coconut brand I just couldn’t resist!
Then I discovered that it’s made right here in British Columbia, Canada, which made it even more enticing as I love to support local brands.
Tasting Notes for Frozen Coconut
Frozen Coconut is currently available in six different flavors made from simple high quality vegan ingredients. But not only are these frozen desserts plant-based, they’re also free of gluten, peanuts, tree nuts, and soy. Their motto is “Natural ingredients, extraordinary taste – ice cream for everyone”, which only added to my reasons for loving this brand.
Chocolate Mint Frozen Coconut
Mint chocolate chip is one of my favorite ice cream flavors, so I was really excited to see this variety. Expecting a chocolate flecked mint ice cream, I was a little disappointed when I opened up this pint. But if I had paid more attention to the ingredients, I would have realized that’s not what I was getting. This Chocolate Mint isn’t like the classic green scoop. Rather, it’s a chocolate ice cream with a hint of mint flavor.
Putting my initial disappointment aside, I still found the flavor pretty underwhelming. It really didn’t taste strongly of mint or chocolate. In fact, I still haven’t been able to pinpoint what it does taste like to me. I was impressed with the creamy consistency of the ice cream though! The flavor is so mellow that I think it could be re-purposed into a creamy dreamy milkshake at the very least.
Orange Cream Frozen Coconut
I’ve never seen an ice cream in this flavor before, and couldn’t wait to try it since orange creamsicles used to hold a special spot in my heart. This flavor is a little icy and almost reminiscent of a creamier sorbet. Despite it’s iciness, this flavor really wowed me! It tastes just like an orange creamsicle and brought back memories of orange sherbet, which was also a favorite. The coconut milk pairs so well with the sweet citrus, and makes this a refreshing treat.
After initially reviewing these two flavors, Frozen Coconut reached out and offered for me to give a few more flavors a try…
Maple Sea Salt
New to their line up, this flavor had me really excited. I’m a lover of all things maple (I am Canadian after all) and salted desserts. Again, this flavor has a bit of an icy texture. Although, it is more creamy than the others. The flavor was really pleasant though. I couldn’t detect much salt, but the maple flavor was spot on. It did keep me coming back for more despite the icy-ness.
This was another flavor I had been eyeing up. Sadly, it fell a little flat. It didn’t have much of a zesty lemon flavor and fell flat.
Similar to the Orange Creamsicle, the icy texture kind of fit this flavor, giving it a sorbet vibe. I liked this one. It was light and refreshing and the mango shined through.
Frozen Coconut ice cream is on the pricier side, but it’s kind of expected with most dairy-free frozen desserts. I am a fan of what the company is doing, the packaging, and the simple ingredients, but I just didn’t love them.
