What is your ice cream made from and what replaces the dairy?

The base of our creamy dairy free ice cream is coconut milk and avocado, and it is sweetened with either honey or coconut sugar. All of our products are free from refined sugar, additives and gluten.

Isn’t coconut milk and avocado very fattening?

There is less fat in our ice cream than typical dairy Ice Creams. Up to 30% less. And the fats are good fats. Avocado is a monounsaturated fat, which is thought to be good for lowering cholesterol, and coconut milk is a medium chain saturated fat, which is much easier digested.

Isn’t all ice cream gluten free?

Often it is not due to a number of factors. We don't use any gums and/or stabilisers or additions (like cookie dough!), which can typically contain Gluten.

Are all your products vegetarian?


Are your products suitable for diabetics?

Our products still contain sugars in the form of raw unrefined coconut sugar or honey (ice cream) and so they are not ideal. However, there is less sugar in our chocolate (50% less than traditional milk chocolate) and so might help as part of a better diet in moderation.

Is your Chocolate suitable for nut allergy sufferers?

No. All of our chocolate contains cashew nut butter.

Does your ice cream taste of coconut?

Our Frozen Goodness has a high percentage of coconut milk so it does have a subtle coconut taste. We use a very high quality single origin coconut milk so the taste isn’t a coconut flavouring and there are no bits. Our Chocolate has a much lower percentage of coconut in it, so the taste of coconut is much less prominent.

What is the shelf life on your products?

Our Frozen Goodness has a shelf life of 10 months from the day it’s made if stored at the correct temperature. Our Chocolate also has a shelf life of 9 months once it’s stored in a cool place away from direct sunlight. Our Nutty Jars have a shelf life of 8 months. 

How should I store your Frozen Goodness and Choc?

Our Frozen Goodness should be stored at -18 in your home freezer. It should be treated like ice cream and will need 10 minutes to soften before it’s scoopable. Our Chocolate should be stored in a cool, dry place away from any direct sunlight.
