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.

The mint chocolate chip has an overwhelming taste of marijuana and not in a good way. I am so disappointed. I ate my ice cream cone dry. I did not enjoy any part of this ice cream at all. I will not even give any other flavors a chance, it was that bad for me. Heading back to Ben & Jerry’s non-dairy. Zero Stars if it was an option.

Ugh I had tried the acai and found it alright just the consistency was rough and required microwaving to even get it out of the container. Then I bought the chocolate and boy was that ever a mistake. Nothing like chocolate except maybe a slight dark cacao aftertaste. Mainly tasted like rotten bananas. No amount of honey or chocolate syrup could save it

I have been plant based for years and this is a very bad tasting option. Go with Ben and Jerry’s instead. I took a few bites and threw away the rest of the chocolate mint chip snow monkey dessert. Really disappointed since this was so expensive. It shouldn’t be $7.99 since the base is made of banana, the cheapest thing!

I picked out a couple pints from Sprouts for a treat. My husband, who is far less picky than I am, took one bite and put the whole thing down the sink. I tried it and concurred. We had chocolate and chocolate mint chip. And I was very disappointed.

After tasting the chocolate mint chip iceberg, I tossed it directly in the trash can. It had a weird chemical flavor, topped with mouthwash. I did let my daughter take a bite, it solved the problem of her always wanting my ice cream. She won’t make that mistake again.

I’ve only tried the Matcha Green Tea and thought it was quite good. It definitely tastes best when it’s slightly thawed. I like smoothies with greens so that might explain why I like. I would buy more but am unable to find in stores now and don’t want to patronize Whole Foods. It’s not ice cream, folks, but it’s good!

I personally really like this ice cream. It’s not the creamiest alternative out there and does taste like banana, but it’s super healthy and reminds me of a smoothie. The company is also female/minority-owned so I feel good supporting it.

Tastes like DIRT! No Joke!
