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.

With all the advertising I’ve seen for this I had to try it. Bought a pint of chocolate. The taste reminded me of when my mom would wash my mouth with soap after I let a swear word slip. I don’t know how this even made it onto store shelves.

Imagine you made yourself an ultra-healthy smoothie, drank a bit and was disappointed it tasted like vaguely sweet greens rather than the fruity sweet drink you were hoping for, then put it in the freezer while deluding yourself you’d finish it later. Snow Monkey “desserts” is that.

Honestly, I’m having a really hard time remembering anything I’ve had that tasted worse. It’s like licking a tire, but at least a tire smells better.

Since WINK Frozen Desserts went out of business, you’ll have to look far and wide, or make your own vegan/no-sugar ice cream. Snow Monkey offers the only ice-cream-like frozen dessert that is both vegan and sugar-free. All the others pack their pints with cane sugar! NO THANK YOU!

Response from Go Dairy Free

As a heads up to other readers, Snow Monkey is not sugar-free, but a couple of their flavors are made without “added sugars.” You can see the nutrition facts and ingredients in the post above. There are other dairy-free / vegan ice cream products on the market without added sugar and/or with less sugar. This isn’t the only brand.

Horrible taste

I tried 5 flavors.
Every single one of them worst than the other one.
Rock solid, icy, not creamy at all, and awful flavor. I do not recomend and definetly not buying it again.

This is the worst ice cream or ice cream-adjacent product I’ve ever tried, and my bar is pretty low. Icy, chalky, astringent and totally unsatisfying. I love each of the ingredients, but together they’re a disaster. Also- it took nearly an HOUR for this pint to thaw enough to get the tip of my spoon in there. It’s all so wrong.

No thanks.. try again

I appreciate the effort but I could make this myself and I’d still throw it out..extremely disappointed. Especially at the cost. I mean come on!? For something with 2 stars this is just the biggest rip off. There’s nothing special about the ingredients either.
