I've tried a fair share of ice cream brands in my lifetime. Growing up, my family and I always had a pretty big storage of tasty, flavorful pints in our freezer, ready to be tackled and eaten whenever a sweet tooth came out of nowhere. You name the brand, we had it, and we enjoyed it straight out of the pint or on thick slices of undercooked, gooey brownies. Drool. If you can relate, virtual high five. We had the best childhood, didn't we?

Over the years, however, we noticed we had dwindled the variety to a single brand, a brand that happened to make some of the most delicious dairy free ice creams known to mankind: So Delicious. This company has been around for years now, but its popularity is definitely not stopping anytime soon. With the huge movement towards veganism hitting our planet at the moment, more people are currently on the search for a way to get their ice cream fix without consuming any animal products...and lucky for them, So Delicious has them covered. 

This dairy-free ice cream brand makes all kinds of ice creams, from sandwiches to pints to bars, using a variety of plant-based milks, such as coconut milk, almond milk, and cashew milk. Our plant-based hearts are swooning! And the flavors...where do I even begin? Let's just say, going dairy-free doesn't mean you have to let go of some of your favorite ice cream flavors.

With so many options, how do you choose? Lucky for you, I've tried a myriad of these flavors, and have narrowed it to my top five. Here is a definitive ranking of the top five So Delicious dairy free ice creams. 

5. Vanilla Bean Coconut Milk Sandwiches

Ice cream sandwiches have always been a low-key love of mine. I remember being small, finding any cookies in the pantry, and scooping out a dollop of Haagen Dazs to make a home-made ice cream sandwich. With these Vanilla Bean Coconut Milk Sandwiches, you don't have to worry about having either ice cream or cookies in your house, although we're guessing that if you're human, you have plenty of both in stock. Sure does remove any time or effort, though! Pure deliciousness in every bite. 

4. Chocolate Coconut Milk

Sometimes you need something that is plain and simple, yet still satisfies a craving for chocolate. Say no more...chocolate coconut milk ice cream to the rescue! Sweet, chocolatey, and no cow milk was used in the making of this product. So Delicious really knows how to add a smile to our chocolate-loving tummies!

3. Cookie Dough Coconut Milk

This time, mom can't tell you to stop eating the raw cookie dough, because even she won't be able to resist! This flavor is the perfect blend of chocolate chip cookies and vanilla ice cream, meets delicious, luscious chunks of cookie dough. It's perfect for when you're craving both cookies and ice cream! It tastes like a dream and no doubt gets a place in the top five for the So Delicious brand.  

2. Vanilla Bean Coconut Milk - No Sugar Added

Call me crazy, but this flavor is actually really good.  Like, you won't even be able to tell it has no-added-sugar good. I tend to crave a simple vanilla ice cream time and time again, and this pint totally brings the classic flavor I constantly desire. This ice cream is sweetened with a bit of erythritol, a sugar alcohol, as well as monk food extract, which add flavor without the calories. Nonetheless, it is important to note that sugar alcohols in excess may not play well with some people's digestive system, so eat in moderate portions.  

1. Snickerdoodle Cashew Milk

Are you even surprised this took the number one spot? So Delicious is well-known for its delectable snickerdoodle ice cream, and I'm no stranger to its perfect flavor. Snickerdoodle cookies are my favorite type, so it's no shock to me that I have an uncalled obsession for this pint of theirs. Cinnamon and I...we just go together. And I am not complaining!

With so many flavors, it's hard to narrow it down to a few favorites. Although it'll be hard to choose, next time you're at the ice cream isle at the grocery store, don't hesitate to pick a few of these up. Whether you're a dairy free type of person or not, your palate will sure thank you for making it dance!
