Nadamoo Dairy-Free Ice Cream: Now in 14 Flavors!


Nadamoo has been around for over a decade, giving them plenty of time to concoct several amazing flavors. In fact, I’m updating this review yet again, to accommodate their latest creations.

Nadamoo pints - stock

Though technically labeled as “non-dairy frozen dessert”, Nadamoo has definitely earned the decadent title of ice cream. The rich coconut milk base is whipped to perfection, providing an indulgent, yet perfectly fluffy texture that allows an ice cream scoop to glide with ease, even straight from the freezer. It’s a truly creamy, dreamy melt in your mouth experience that even our resident coconut-hater enjoyed. Though some Nadamoo flavors do have notable coconut vibes, it was masked or melded beautifully in several varieties.

Nadamoo Dairy-Free Ice Cream - Organic, Made from Coconut Milk Frozen Dessert Pints in Several Flavors

Nadamoo Taste-Testing Round ONE

Our first panel of reviewers included myself, Tony and our niece, who does eat dairy, and is quite picky, to boot!

Lotta Mint Chip

We loved the luxurious texture and perfectly sweet, naturally minty flavor. I found the chocolate chips to be a little much. They were quite dark in taste, contrasting, and broke up the consistency. If Nadamoo switched from chips to flakes, I’d be sold.

Vanilla Cha-Cha-Chai

I’m the vanilla and chai lover in our house, so I was the final judge on this flavor. Wonderful depth, ultra-creamy, and intense vanilla tempered only by the deliciously bold spices. Unlike any other and sensational!

Gotta Do Chocolate

This one was rich with nary an underlying note of coconut. We all established it as a “good’ solid chocolate ice cream, but it did lack the wow factor.

Chocolate Almond Chip

There was a wonderful pure almond vibe that moved this Nadamoo flavor to a notch above the Chocolate in my book. It was packed with tasty little chocolate chips and the perfect smattering of nut chunks. Tony really liked it, and it reminded me of my mom’s favorite kind of ice cream.

Sweet Cherry Lime

Amazing and unique were words uttered by both me and my niece. We agreed that it was like a creamy slurpee sorbet. “It’s weird, but actually so good”, she said.

Java Crunch

It looked SO enticing, bursting from the package like a soft, fluffy cloud with very generous amounts of chocolate chips. But the taste was way too “coffee” for me. Fortunately, the other two tasters are java drinkers. Tony said “it’s good”, but my teenage niece said, “it’s okay, but kind of weird”.

Creamy Coconut

It sounded so generic: a coconut-flavored coconut milk dairy-free ice cream. But somehow Nadamoo turned this simplistic vegan dessert into an amazing experience. Surprisingly difficult to describe, it’s completely smooth, and doesn’t really smack you in the face with coconut. It’s just really darn delicious.

Bananas for PB & Chocolate

I had mixed feelings about this Nadamoo ice cream flavor. I love bananas, and who doesn’t love peanut butter and chocolate? But none of the flavors really asserted themselves, rather they tasted muddled into one. It was okay, but not the unique flavor bomb I had hoped for.


I’m a sucker for a good vanilla, and this one delivered. The consistency was rich and creamy with a touch or refreshing iciness. Every bite contained generous amounts of vanilla bean flecks. However, it does have relatively strong coconut undertones that at times compete with the warm, earthy spice.

mmm…Maple Pecan

If let loose in the grocery store with Nadamoo ice cream coupons, this is probably the dairy-free pint that I would buy first. I’m a sucker for this flavor combo, and wasn’t let down by the good, sweet, almost reliable maple-y deliciousness. It was missing just that little something to escalate it to new vegan ice cream heights. I’m not sure what, perhaps just a pinch of salt. Nonetheless, it was still quite stellar.

Nadamoo Taste-Testing Round TWO

To trial the new 2016 batch of Nadamoo flavors (pictured above), I recruited two ice cream-loving friends. First up was Caroline of Grateful Foodie, and then another close friend, Raechelle. Since it’s been a couple of years since I reviewed the flavors above, and we had some new tasters, I opted to add the Vanilla to the mix for a point of reference.

Salted Caramel

This strange flavor had all of us stumped. We simply couldn’t describe it. Raechelle loved that she could taste the salty influence, which is often lacking in “salted” flavors. But none of us got caramel out of it. I thought it had some coffee influence, Caroline said it was a bit butterscotchy, and Raechelle just didn’t know. Overall, we all enjoyed it, and couldn’t stop taste-testing out of intrigue. And although the flavor was obviously influenced in some way by coconut milk, none of us could detect any distinctly coconut hints.

That Snickerdoodle Dough

This was the hands down winner for Raechelle and me. Caroline loved it, too, but couldn’t decide on her top pick. The wonderful cinnamon-bursting ice cream was creamier and less icy than the Vanilla, and none of us noticed any coconut flavor. The snickerdoodle cookie dough chunks were just generous enough, and had that wonderful sugary, addictive texture. Raechelle pointed out that it lacked that true “cream of tartar” snickerdoodle vibe, but she wasn’t complaining.

Pistachio Nut

Like the Vanilla, the consistency was creamy, but a little icy. However, there was an underlying richness that tasted a little buttery. For me, the pistachios gave the overall flavor a little too much of a “soapy” taste, for lack of a better word. However, Caroline really loved the nutty, pale green ice cream, but thought the big pistachio pieces overwhelmed at times.

Cookies & Creme

Caroline really liked this flavor and the fact that it had distinct dark chocolaty cookie chunks (these aren’t Oreos!) rather than a cookie-ice cream blend up. The base ice cream was a lot like their Vanilla, creamy and fluffy, but just a touch icy and refreshing. It had a little bit more of an “icing” flavor than vanilla, but unfortunately Raechelle and I thought the coconut milk overwhelmed at times rather than melding. We also wished there were more cookies. Often an entire scoop had just a few chunks.

Chocolate Cherry Fudge Brownie

Caroline loved this flavor, ranking it in a three-way tie for first place. It has a kid-like chocolate ice cream base that is more “cocoa” in taste and consistency than rich chocolate, but that was just bold enough to mellow the underlying coconut. The cherry flavor is subtle, but influencing, and makes itself known with occasional whole sweet cherry bites. There are some actual brownie pieces, but they are far and few between. In fact, I didn’t even know those cakey bites were in there until I had a second serving on another night. I’d actually love it if they added chocolate shavings or fudge instead.

Nadamoo Taste-Testing Round THREE

Nadamoo recently released two new exciting flavors. Leah had the chance to taste test and shared her thoughts with us!

The Rockiest Road

Although, not typically a big fan of chocolate ice cream – I was excited about this flavor. It’s a chocolate ice cream studded with almonds, cookie bits, and marshmallows. I really enjoyed this flavor! Much more than expected. The chocolate ice cream is light and ultra creamy. It had a lot of textural interest, which was amazing. There was a lovely crunch from the almonds, rich crumbly cookie bits, and the gooey marshmallows.

I trialled two pints of this flavor – one pint had generous cookie bits, but I found just one lone marshmallow, the second pint had marshmallows pop up in each serving, but less cookies and almonds. This flavor is still new, so Nadamoo has said that they’re still working on it. Either way – I was a big fan of this decadent treat!

Birthday Cake Cookie Dough

This flavor had me freaking out. Birthday cake ice cream? Yes please. Cookie dough ice cream? Also yes please. So together, what a dream. This flavor was birthday cake ice cream with smattering of chocolate chips and chunks of cookie dough. The ice cream itself is yellow and white swirled, which I think was to represent frosted yellow cake – it was incredibly tasty.

It really did bring me back to my childhood days of enjoying yellow cake at parties. It’s sweet, light, and really pleasantly vanilla. I wish there had been a lot more cookie dough mixed in, but again it’s new and I believe this is something they’re working on along with using sprinkles that don’t disappear into the cake. If you’re a fan of birthday cake or cookie dough ice cream – you’ll love this flavor!

The texture of both was smooth, creamy, and almost fluffy. Nadamoo remains to be one of my vegan favorite ice cream brands with their innovative fun flavors, creamy deliciousness, and amazing customer service.

I’m not the best at being able to tell if something has a coconut-y flavor. So coconut flavor or not, this is the most delicious flavor of dairy or non-dairy ice cream I’ve ever tasted. Chunks of marshmallows mixed with bits of candy and berry flavored ice cream swirled with vanilla – heaven. I’m so glad I can’t go buy a pint of this every day.


Delicious but have a question

Our ice cream scoop melted into every soft, fluffy, and creamy pint of Nadamoo. For our crew, the Snickerdoodle, Vanilla Cha-Cha-Chai, Creamy Coconut, and Sweet Cherry Lime had that 5-star wow factor, while several others earned solid kudos (see full review at left!). But all varieties were surprisingly rich in pure flavors and some even won over an anti-coconut, sugar-loving teen. Nonetheless, if you are truly coconut averse, start with the bolder selections.

  1. Is it normal for this ice cream brand to have no protective seal/band/film? Just wanted to make sure someone didn’t remove it in store

  2. The birthday cake review stated that the ice cream had a great yellow cake flavor and will take me back to grade school. the review also stated that the chocolate was great but didn’t have any kick. so i decided to go with the birthday cake instead. But when i got it there was absolutely no nostaligic taste nothing remenicent of any original familiar flavors, there was no actual birthday cake and there was no colorful sprinkles. One thing that was good about it was the creamy texture that was a plus in general also that its organic and non gmo, but i must sy the birthday flavor was nothing to rave about actually on the contrary i might rant about how terrible it was, lucky i had the swirl of original coconut to redeem it and luckily i liked the texture, but the flavor of the yellow needs some improvement, next time i should try the chocolate one because its probably a lot better.

    • Thanks for sharing your honest take Nora! Leah reviewed that flavor (I haven’t tried it myself), but I can tell from her photos that there is a lot of yellow cake going on in the pint she taste-tested. It sounds like yours was shorted. That has happened to me with many brands of non-dairy ice cream – a random pint is almost void of add-ins. I personally like their Snickerdoodle Dough and Vanilla flavors best. Hopefully the chocolate works for you – we have sampled that one, and it was good, just not a home run here.

  3. I have contacted you before at my absolute delight in finding your brand of non dairy icecream I havr Polish friends so I knew what Nada meant. Cannot get the many flovors you write about here in Allen TX but I can wait. Thanks again I can eat ice cream again Yahoo

  4. Pingback: Nadamoo! Scoop Shop Joins the Dairy-Free Ice Cream Scene in Austin

  5. Our local grocery Stator Bros just got in 14 flavors. Have you ever thought of opening a nada moo ice cream shop? It would be ahit in So Ca

  6. I just saw this ice cream on YouTube thanks to “Happy Healthy Vegan” Anji & Ryan just opened up new flavors sent by NadaMoo! Love it and now wanting to buy some! 🍦

  7. Nadamoo has the best taste and texture among non-dairy ice creams. I love the mint chocolate chip, snicker doodle and vanilla. My only annoyance/concern is that their ice cream (mostly eat the vanilla flavor) gives me intense flatulence (sorry, just being honest) every single time, unlike other non-dairy ice creams I’ve purchased.

  8. Nadamoo ….you. Are. My. Hero!!!! I love mint chip! I went out on a limb at Whole Foods and forked out the $6.49 on a gamble in desperate need to find a dairy-free “Ice cream” that was comparable to the real thing and I must say you guys have nailed it!!!! You should know that the Whole Foods near me does not give your brand the up front focus on the shelf that it deserves (top shelf in the corner). In my opinion they should move all the so delicious and Ben and Jerry’s out of the way for you guys! Thank you, thank you, thank you 🙏

  9. I’ve tried a variety of Nada Moo flavors (but I haven’t seen all of them around here yet) and lots of dairy-free “ice creams” too over the years. Not one of them comes particularly close to Nada Moo’s Salted Caramel. And no real dairy ice cream I’ve ever had was better, although some tasted as good as Salted Caramel. (Dairy ice cream doesn’t taste the same, but some are just as tasty as Salted Caramel.) The reviewers couldn’t really describe Salted Caramel, and neither can I. Don’t try; just enjoy it; it is really hard to describe the taste other than to say it is incredible. I buy other flavors from time to time, but only when I can’t find Salted Caramel, which I’ve only ever seen at one store in our area. Today we had MMM…Maple Pecan since I couldn’t find Salted Caramel. It was good, but not nearly as good. I also saw Birthday Cake; I didn’t have my reading glasses on to read the ingredients, so I didn’t buy it this morning. The review made me wish I had (just have to check ingredients first to make sure my son can have it). But, so far, I’m so so spoiled by Salted Caramel that every other “ice cream” I’ve tried, from Nada Moo and from others, is disappointing in comparison. I don’t know how they make it taste so great, but they do. But there is something almost disturbing about the fact that a company can make something a product so much more delicious than the competitors. Sort of makes me think about some of the nasty unnatural tricks the conventional food industry plays on our taste buds to get us addicted. I hope Nada Moo isn’t doing anything insidious but that, instead, they just lucked on perfection through perfectly natural means.

  10. My Only complaint with this ice cream is that I have to drive to Whole Foods to get it 25😩Miles. And it’s still worth it to me. This is the Best Ever. I know this is TMI but I need to say I got no gas from this ice cream..I love this off to Whole Foods on Saturday 😍…

  11. Mark Schwartz on

    Is Nadamoo available anywhere in the New York area? Or did you publish this long piece just to tease me?

  12. I just discovered this brand. I bought a pint and the next day, emailed the company to complain.

    The nutrition label says 4 servings per container. I ONLY GOT ONE SERVING! :O)

    omg. If it weren’t so expensive, I’d be eating a pint a day. Salted caramel is more like butterscotch pudding, but it’s still good.

  13. Christine Lee on

    Nadamoo is definitely one of the best vegan icecreams on the market. So good and creamy!

  14. Super excited to see they are sold at a number of locations near me! Now to decide which to try first!!

  15. Jane Goldschlager on

    Hi, Alisa,
    I understand why you didn’t publish my comment about the hat. But I had to let you know that I wrote to the company and they’re the most amazing company. Not only did the respond, but they’re it from their merchandise. Cool. Best regards to you and thanks for all. Jane

  16. I was looking for a less-sweet alternative to Luna & Larry’s…I think you guys are it! Just got home and like the first bite! Went online to find reviews..will report back after eating more and see if I don’t crash…lol.

  17. I just recently went dairy free after watching a horrifying documentary about the dairy industry. I was getting pretty discouraged about giving up my love of ice cream when I couldn’t find a non-dairy alternative that didn’t taste like straight up coconuts (I actually love coconuts but don’t want my ice cream to taste like it ya know?) That is until I found NadaMoo! It is beyond delicious and THE TEXTURE, wow! So creamy! I’ve only had the chocolate flavor but I cannot wait to try more! I highly recommend this brand! My mouth is watering just typing this.

    Also, thank you s o much for providing this amazing website! I never realized how much dairy is in EVERYTHING so your website has made it so much easier to go dairy free.

    • Hi Alyssa, thanks so much for sharing your opinions on this ice cream, too! I know, it definitely can seem impossible to find dairy-free at first, but it will get easier – there are literally millions of dairy-free options these days! I’ll keep sharing them here on this website, but honestly, it’s hard to keep up! 🙂
