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!
