My how times change. It seems like not long ago that Purely Decadent Dairy-Free Ice Cream was the pioneer in the world of non-dairy frozen dessert. Created by Turtle Mountain, the fanciful flavors saved me many times when those cool and creamy cravings hit. But over the years, the soy-based line has repeatedly dwindled. And after a recent rebranding to “So Delicious Soymilk Frozen Desserts,” it’s down to two flavors: Vanilla and Chocolate.
So Delicious Soymilk Ice Cream Scales Down to Core Flavors
Years ago, we reveled in exciting and delicious flavors like Cookie Dough, Peanut Butter Zig Zag, and Turtle Trails. But the heyday of soy is past, at least for now. And So Delicious has opted to focus more on dairy-free ice cream made with cashews, coconut, and oats. But thanks to a loyal following, they’re still hanging on to two of the classic So Delicious Soymilk Ice Cream flavors.

The vanilla one is super creamy and really sweet! Much better than the almond and coconut flavors I’ve had before 🙂
The soy ice cream is still a classic in my book.
Honestly, I miss the Purely Decadent flavors of days past. Their new cashewmilk ice cream is amazing, but I’ve always thought the soy ice cream was better than their coconut and almond lines. I’m glad it’s still around though. We’ve bought the vanilla a few times, and it’s relatively soft and creamy. And I love that it doesn’t taste like coconut! It’s lighter than ice cream (in consistency and nutrition), which we actually prefer.
