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.

I am vegan, gluten free. I make my own banana ice cream at home. I found Snow Money — chocolate mint — and was excited for the new sweet treat. There is such a strong aftertaste and odd texture that eating the ice cream becomes unbearable. There re so many strong flavors that don’t mix wel—heavy banana taste, chocolate, apple, peppermint — and I could taste all of it. Very conflicting. Gross. Still taste it unfortunately.

Overall a very underwhelming purchase. I love that the ingredients are wholesome and nutritional, but all the flavor tasted like was bananas, which I don’t particularly like anyway.. I purchased the maple fudge flavor. No wonder they were on clearance. Not even remotely the taste of the namesake…and just not tasty period.

The chocolate is AMAZING!!

I’ve tried most of their flavors. All great. But the chocolate is beyond excellent. I put it in the microwave for 30 seconds straight from the freezer. It’s the best!!

This is, without a doubt, the worst tasting ice cream substitute ever. I bought the chocolate mint chip. Awful! After a couple of bites, I tossed it. It looked so promising; but was nasty.

This is the worst plant-based, vegan ice cream I have ever tasted. What were they thinking? I paid almost $10 for a pint and ended up throwing it away. With so many amazing ingredients that can be used to make vegan ice cream, I can’t believe this is the best they can do. Please hire a competent formulator to fix your awful tasting product! Yuck, just plain yuck!

I have lots of food sensitivities so I was excited to find something I could eat in the “ice cream” department. This is absolutely horrible! It’s a sorbet, earthy, creamy mix of everything wrong. No resemblance to chocolate mint whatsoever. Wasted money.

Amazing, delicious, light

Snow Monkey is a delicious ice treat that leaves me feeling super light and not with a horrible after-ice cream feeling, like a lot of ice creams do. It feels like I had a nutritious tasty snack every time, and doesn’t have that awful sugar effect still lingering in my mouth. It’s a great healthy alternative brand. Keep producing the chocolate brand please!!!! It’s my favorite 😋😋😋

I am so happy to have found these!

I was honestly shocked to see all the negative responses. I think the flavor people may not be enjoying is the added hemp protein powder. It can be distinct, but I enjoy it so I guess it may lean more in favor of those who enjoy that. I really like that there is not added sugars and even the amount there is, is not anything compared to say an oat milk ice cream. I also like that it has fiber in it. A way healthier alternative compared to your normal icecream. Do keep in mind, since it is fruit based it does have more of an icey/gelato consistency.

The absolute worst

I figured I would try something new so I tried the green tea matcha and it was the worst dairy free dessert I’ve ever tasted. It had a gritty taste as if it was too much powder mixture. I’m going to stick with So Delicious and Cado.
