Vegan Ice Cream Challenge: Ice Supreme Pecan Passion

It’s been hovering in the upper 90s here in Atlanta, and weather like this makes me crave ice cream like no other. This year, I’m on the hunt for my favorite vegan ice cream! The plan is to try new pints each week and share my findings right here. I know, it’s a tough life I’ve got.

This week, I tried out Ice Supreme. This is not just a dairy free ice cream treat; it’s almost completely raw and contains no soy at all. That’s handy, since it’s really easy when you’re cutting out dairy to go a little heavy on the soy. Moderation is key, right? What better place to start than with ice cream!

The Stats

  • Ingredients: Filtered water, raw almonds, raw cashews, raw and toasted pecans, organic raw agave nectar, raw vanilla bean, himalayan crystal salt
  • Calories per 1/2 cup: 180
  • Total fat per 1/2 cup: 10g
  • Total saturated fat per 1/2 cup: 1.5g
  • Total fiber per 1/2 cup: 1g
  • 1/2 cup contains: 2% of your calcium and 6% of your iron (based on a 2000 calorie diet)
  • Price: $6.99 per pint

The Verdict
I picked up a pint of the Pecan Passion flavor. Overall, for such an unprocessed treat, it was delicious! That pint will definitely not languish in the freezer.

The ice cream was pretty tasty – sweet but not overly sweet with big chunks of pecan mixed in. My only complaint is that it had a slightly grainy texture from the nuts. That might have been from the toasted pecans, though, rather than the raw nuts that make up the base of the ice cream. The Whole Foods here that carries it also stocks the Strawberry Supreme variety, so another round might be in order for this ice cream.

You can pick up your own pint at Whole Foods or your local co-op in certain states. If your area doesn’t carry it, they also sell pints on the Ice Supreme website.

    Highly suggest Luna and Larry’s Coconut Bliss. Variety of flavors (including bars). Also they use few ingredients, do not use sugar (they use agave), they are organic, and they use fair trade ingredients. Their ice cream is delicious and is very creamy like dairy ice cream.

    “As rich and creamy as premium ice cream, Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss is a satisfying, delicious, and healthy alternative to dairy and soy-based frozen desserts. Made from a base of naturally rich coconut milk and sweetened with agave syrup, Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss is certified organic, 100% vegan, kosher pareve, and made with certified fair trade ingredients.”

    Oooh thanks for the recommendation! I actually have a coconut-based ice cream on deck for next week, but I’ll make sure to snag this one to try, too!

    Yum-O. We love MimicCreme which is a nut based cream replacer, it can be used to make ice cream… but we don’t always have the time (or patience) to make our own. We will have to look for some of this and try it out!

    I’ve never seen Ice Supreme. I wonder if they have it here in the Southwest. You must try Purely Decadent Made with Coconut Milk! All the flavors are delicious, but my favorites are Chocolate and Mocha Almond Fudge!

    Funny story….Purely Decadent is next week’s pick! I snagged the peanut butter swirl. :) Thanks for the recommendation! Keep them coming, for sure! If they’re all as delicious as that one, they’re definitely welcome.
