ice cream dreams

Between pregnancy and new motherhood, I’m not embarrassed to admit that our household has increased its ice cream intake significantly in the last few years.  As we head into the Houston summer (say it ain’t so!) ice cream is one of our family’s favorite refreshing treats.

I believe that there’s a place for everything in moderation, but lately I’ve been starting to think we need to cut back on the dairy intake.  Enter an awesome new solution: Blue Bunny Dairy Free Ice Cream.  It’s an extremely new product, only available in a few select test markets right now, Houston being one of them. (As a transplant from New York, it’s exciting and rare when Houston has something that New York doesn’t!)

What I like about this ice cream is that, aside from being dairy free (it’s almond based), it’s still as rich and creamy as ice cream should be.  I’ve tried a few almond and soy alternatives but never found one I truly love.  And Blue Bunny’s flavors are exactly in my family’s wheelhouse too: vanilla for me, mint chocolate chip for Chad, and chocolate for baby Bear!  (It also comes in Mocha Fudge.)

For me, daily products are fine in moderation, but if you’re lactose-intolerant, these are particularly worth checking out.  And even if you’re not, these ice creams are an excellent source of calcium, cholesterol free, and contain healthy fats.

I’m sure ice-cream family outings will still continue, but I’m excited to mix them up with some official “Blue Bunny nights” in our house too! I’ve stocked up at Kroger so next time we need our fix we’ll be good to go! 

And Blue Bunny has offered a giveaway to you guys!  To enter, leave a comment below.  One lucky winner will receive three coupons for free Blue Bunny treats!

Bon appetit!

    I would love to try Blue Bunny’s new dairy free ice cream!  I bet it tastes delicious like all their other products.

    Yummy, who doesn’t love some ice cream. Especially in Texas heat!

    I too have struggled to find a suitable dairy-free ice cream alternative.  Would love to try these from Blue Bunny!

    Great idea! Awesome alternative to the standard dairy ice cream. Is there any difference in taste?

    I am unable to eat Dairy, and have such a hard time finding a good ice cream!  I am so glad Blue Bunny makes this!  I cannot wait to try it! Been so many years since I had ice cream!

    I prefer Blue Bunny Dairy Free Vanilla tastes so delicious and most of all is cholesterol free. Nice picture too.

    Yum! I would love to try these. I’m trying to reduce dairy intake but I just love my ice cream and cheese.

    I am intrigued by the almond milk.  Maybe I just haven’t noticed other brands offering it, but this is the first I have heard of it.  Would love to try.

    Their Frozen Yogurt Caramel Praline Crunch is my go to flavor.

    My favourite ice cream is vanilla with some chocolate pudding on it.
