When I think of non-dairy frozen desserts, I don't always think of high-quality, natural ingredients. However, today's Luna and Larry's Coconut Bliss Chocolate Hazelnut Fudge frozen dessert, distributed by Bliss Unlimited, LLC (Eugene, OR) was different. This organic coconut milk-based chocolate "ice cream" was sweetened with organic agave syrup, chocolate fudge and hazelnuts. The dark fudge ribbon wound its way through this frozen dessert and had a slight mocha flavor to it (there was no coffee in this dessert).

For those who might not care that much for coconut, not to worry. The coconut flavor was subtle, and the texture of this frozen dessert was almost as creamy as, well, real dairy cream based ice cream. The Coconut Bliss product line would be a good substitute for those wanting an organic, vegan, gluten-free/soy-free alternative to traditional ice cream. The company also claims that their frozen desserts with agave provide a relatively low-glycemic option.

Today was Day #5 of Chocolate and Hazelnut Theme Week.
