There are a lot of low-calorie, dairy-free ice creams emerging, but Snow Monkey Superfood Ice Treat shuns any type of funny business. They go wild with healthy ingredients in their exotic ice cream flavors, and avoid sugar alcohols. Each flavor is sweetened naturally with fruit and fruit juice, and a few varieties have a touch of maple syrup added.

Snow Monkey Wants You to Eat No Evil with their Dairy-Free Ice Cream

When I spotted Snow Monkey Superfood Ice Treat at Whole Foods, I assumed they had a wildlife conservation mission, like Endangered Species. But the image refers more to their banana base and “no evil” ingredients. In fact, the ingredient lists read like healthy smoothie recipes!

Additional Allergen Notes*

I asked the company about potential cross-contamination issues with allergens, since I was concerned that the “made in a facility” warning wasn’t the whole story. They shared the following information:

Our products are free from all 8 major allergens including gluten, dairy, soy, and nuts. They are also made in a dedicated nut-free facility. The only major allergen that is handled on the same line as our products is milk. However, our products undergo intensive allergen testing to ensure there is no traces of any of the major allergens both. This testing is conducted in the manufacturing facility as well as by a private, third party laboratory.

Absolutely Horrid

Rated 1 out of 5
February 20, 2021

I have been vegan for 15 years, I have had countless brands of dairy free ice cream during that time. This is, no contest, the worst ice cream I have ever had. It was sour and bitter, I took a single bite and the aftertaste lingered for a good 5 minutes.

Delicious and Allergen Friendly!

I have food allergies, specifically Celiac disease, and this GF, Dairy-Free, and Nut-Free Ice cream was perfect for my Allergen needs. It was also so absolutely delicious – I will be ordering more asap! It made me feel great, as well. I have a sensitivity to processed sugar, so the fact that it is sweetened naturally with fruit or maple syrup helps me not feel terrible afterward. The ordering process was amazing – their interaction is so fun and playful. Great company!

DISGUSTING

I had such high hopes for this brand. We recently switched to dairy free in our home and I heard this brand was founded by women! My husband and I took 2 different flavors and after one bite of each they went straight to the trash! So gross! I normally LOVE healthy foods but these were just a big FAIL!

By far the worst "healthy" ice cream I have tasted: truly terrible

I paid $8 for a pint of Snow Monkey chocolate, since it’s worth it to me if I can find a product which is dairy & gluten free & has no added sugar; the ingredients sounded like winners. The texture wasn’t bad, but this stuff tastes just plain AWFUL. There is not a trace of chocolate flavor (I happily eat 85%, so it’s not that it’s too strong– you would never know it included chocolate in a blind tasting). There is also only a trace of banana flavor. The dominant flavor is a terrible chemical flavor, which leaves a long-lasting terrible aftertaste. I guess maybe it’s the hemp? Or the acacia gum? Or some combination of them. I think this is the first ice cream I have ever thrown away, but I wouldn’t offer it to anyone else.

If you are expecting ice cream, it isn’t. If, like me, you just want a frozen fruit dessert and are too lazy to make your own, this is it.
Matcha and Açaí are the best ones so far…

Not sure if I have a bad batch

I have the passion fruit and cacao and both were gritty and not flavorful at all. I asked a friend to try it and she suggested that maybe it was expired or something. I will ask Sprouts if I can return it.

I go dairy free and tried the Passion Fruit on a whim when I spotted it in the frozen food section. It was khaki green and tasted like burnt puréed peas. It ended up down the garbage disposal. Wish I had read the reviews first.

Go with the Passion Fruit! It’s wonderful. Good flavor, healthy ingredients, smooth texture. Definitely repurchasing.

Love chocolate Snow Monkey. So happy it’s healthy, no sugar alcohols. I’ve only tried Chocolate and Mint. Love it.
