I got lost in the grocery store and just happened to find myself on the ice cream aisle. Shocker, I know. As I strolled down looking at all of the bright packages and flavors and out of the corner of my eye, I saw something different.

Is that coconut milk ice cream? I looked a little closer, and sure enough there it was in the tiniest little section towards the end of the row. I knew that non-dairy milks were on the rise with almond milk and coconut milk topping the charts, but I was still surprised to see it.

A few days later I found myself still intrigued by the thought of coconut milk ice cream (and it just so happened that I was also craving ice cream) so, I decided to give it a try just to spice up my ice cream life, and I am here to tell about my experience and provide you with everything you need to know about eating coconut milk ice cream.

1. I was behind the trend

There I was in the checkout line of Publix with my choice of coconut milk ice cream in hand, and as I hand it over to the cashier and her face immediately lights up. For about five minutes she gabbed on and on about how trying coconut milk would “change my life” and it was the “best thing that ever happened to her.” Clearly, this trend had already taken off.

2. It’s non-dairy

Coconut milk ice cream is great for the dairy-sensitive stomach because it contains absolutely no dairy products. So whether you’re lactose intolerant, or even just sensitive to consuming large amounts of dairy this will surely satisfy your long-time ice cream crave.

3. There’s a hint of coconut in every bite

There were many flavors to choose from in the selection of coconut milk ice cream, however, I will have you know that I tried the cookie dough. Something I wasn’t expecting was the how much I tasted the coconut flavor. It was always just a hint, but if you’re not fond on coconut, this may not be for you.

4. It’s delicious

Bottom line? I’m so glad I tried coconut milk ice cream because honestly, I loved it! It was flavor-filled, creamy, and I felt a little healthier, too.

All this talk has me seriously craving more coconut milk ice cream. So, next time you find yourself in the ice cream section, don’t be afraid to try something new. I promise, you won’t be disappointed.
