Let’s face it, a little cone of ice cream could instantly brighten up any gloomy day! One of the reasons why I named my happy blog LifeIsGelato.com, a personal development blog devoted to Christ-centered living, mainly because ice cream gives us some deep soulful comfort that no words could sometimes! (Agree?:D) Despite its high fat and sugar content, we all are guilty to be able to finish a pint or two in our lifetime in one sitting, right? But before we all sulk in self-pity as we look at our waistlines and say that life is unfair, let me remind you that someone up there still loves you!Pure plant based, coconut-based, gluten-free, refined sugar-free and soy-free ice cream is up in the planet! (At least in the Philippines now) Let me introduce to you Cocolatto. Cocolatto is an artisanal vegan, dairy-free, low-fat alternative for the smart and conscious eaters out there. It uses coconut sugar so it’s quite safe for diabetics too. Vegans, Diabetics, Lactose-intolerant and health freaks can I get an alleluhiah!!?!!
When these babies arrived in my doorstep a month ago, I can’t help but think of Christmas mornings!:) They were beautifully packaged in 125 ml ice cream gold lid cups and I don’t want to eat them! They also come with an elegant cooler. (A cup starts at Php 155, $5++)
My Cocolatto favorites (and best sellers)
The Chocolate Cake is the bomb for me. It’s absolutely DIVINE. It reminds me of coco jam minus the sinful sweetness. Chocolate addicts would worship this! Totally comparable to the real thing.
Naked Coconut. My second favorite is this one. I love the creaminess of this! Smooth texture. Very simple yet delightful. Beats any high end vanilla ice cream out there! Totally love love this. If I would be an icecream, I would probably chose this flavor. 😀 Minimalist, clean, smooth and versatile.
Macaroon Macarena. This one has its charm because it’s nutty, crunchy and taste exactly like your coconut macaroons. If you like some rocky texture in your ice cream, this one’s for you.Mister Coffee. This one is definitely for coffee lovers! Love it! Not too sweet, but totally satisfying.
Lemon Lavida Loca. This one’s another favorite of mine! I wasn’t able to take a picture. But I so love the mesh of coconut cream and lemon! Reminds me of lemon flavored macarons!
Bikini Banana. The Bikini Banana reminds me of my regular blended smoothie of frozen bananas, almond milk, coconut oil and cinnamon in it. Love its taste, but nothing special to me anymore. Still I would eat this a countless of times given the choice.
Macho Mango. This one’s for mango lovers. It’s fairly average for my palette but its still yummy. My husband who’s not really a fan of coconut loves this flavor. Amanda Griffin, the head of Glam-o-mamas and also vegan, raves about this.
Oh my Kulet. I need to warn you of this flavor! If you’re not used to indian food- do not dare. This one really taste like authentic indian soup! Not really a fan of this flavor though. My husband thinks it taste like lipstick. LOL
These golden cups are really so addicting. Totally enjoying the creamy flavors. This proved that healthy eating need not be boring! They’re so delicious that two-three cups is healthy compare to store-brought commercial ones that’s full of sugar, fat, dairy (that usually is full of hormone altering properties) and artificial flavors and preservatives. So yes to these guilt-free delights! I really hope they come up with jackfruit, durian, strawberry and avocado versions!
