Ice cream. It’s one of my favorite desserts. Cold nights, hot days-it doesn’t matter. Ice cream is great any time!
I found out about Steve’s Ice Cream not too long ago and just had to get my hands on some. Luckily, I found Steve’s at my local Sprout’s Farmers Market! They had just a handful of flavors, with only 3 of them being vegan. The Dark Chocolate Salty Caramel was calling my name. How could it not!? Chocolate and caramel in one? Sign me up!
I have tried many different vegan ice creams and this one is by far the best ice cream I have ever tasted.A few non-dairy ice creams that I have tried have a little bit of an icy, grainy texture to it. But Steve’s is so silky smooth mostly because Steve’s uses coconut cream as the base of their ice cream. It’s creamy texture is reminiscent of dairy ice cream.
Steve’s uses Taza Chocolate for their ice cream. Taza Chocolate’s stone ground cacao is added to their ice cream base to create their chocolate flavor. The smooth ice cream and rich chocolate flavor created the perfect spoonful of happiness.
And the caramel swirl took things to a whole new level. The caramel wasn’t overly sweet but had a nice thick consistency to it. It was slightly sticky so you knew it was caramel, not just caramel flavoring. And the caramel to ice cream ratio was perfectly balanced.
Steve’s offers 4 ice cream flavors that are vegan and gluten free: Dark Chocolate Salty Caramel, Mint Cacao Chip,Cinnamon Chocolate and Scotch Chocolate. Hopefully, they will continue to add to their non-dairy line up in the future. I would love to see a vegan version of their Southern Banana Pudding. But in the mean time, I suppose I can get by on Dark Chocolate Salty Caramel.
Look for Steve’s at your local grocery store. I can’t wait to hear what you think of it!
