Good Deal on Non-Dairy Ice Cream at Publix

I tried a coconut almond bar for the first time tonight. It's been about three weeks since I started My Vegan Experiment, and about two weeks since I stopped eating desserts of any kind. I've been carrying around two big hang-ups that I put to the test tonight:
  1. Does non-dairy chocolate and ice cream taste good? The answer is yes, yes, yes! The chocolate was great - no different than regular dairy chocolate. The ice cream is actually fantastic! It's very rich and creamy, and has a subtle coconut flavor that works well in ice cream.
  2. Can I handle occasional desserts without falling back into sugar addiction? That's yet to be seen. I ate it about 30 minutes ago, and so no sugar cravings just yet. I will say that this product does adhere to my "no empty calories" rule. It actually adds a few good things into the mix:

    • 3 grams of fiber
    • 2 grams of protein
    • 6% of the daily value of iron
    • only 10 grams of sugar (agave and beet sugar)
    • although there is 7 grams of saturated fat, coconut milk is rich in medium chain fatty acids, and potentially has a number of health benefits (another controversial topic)
So, if I can handle having a dessert once in a while without letting it spin out of control, I will definitely buy this product again. It really is So Delicious.
