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.

Found these at grocery outlet and decided to try it out. The protein powder added to it is what leads to the weird taste I think. But it’s not bad and is a good little post-workout snack. 🙂

I decided to try the matcha flavor…really wanted to like this and I do appreciate the healthy concept. Unfortunately it’s just not very good. Flavor is overwhelming apple, it’s very ‘smoothie’ tasting which isn’t terrible but not what I’m looking for as a treat. Texture’s not great, it’s very icy and hard – I have to chip away chunks from the tub. If you must try this I’d recommend going with the chocolate flavor. I can’t guarantee it’s any better but I think the overwhelming fruitiness would pair better with chocolate vs matcha.

I bought this from Sprouts market the other day and put it in my freezer. I was excited to try and when I opened it and tried to scoop it, my spoon bent! This stuff freezes so hard I can’t even scoop it! Plus it doesn’t really taste that great.
This was a big let down 🙁
FAIL…..

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.

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.
