Luna & Larry's Organic Coconut Bliss Review & Giveaway

~~~THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED~~~

What else can you make from coconuts?
Coconut oil has become a huge part of my new diet because it is extremely healthy in place of other oils. Check out this ABC video for the health benefits of coconuts.




Coconuts are used to make other wonderful products including coconut milk. What can you make with coconut milk? Ice cream of course! Who doesn't love ice cream? Luna & Larry's Organic Coconut Bliss is the healthiest, tastiest ice cream on the market!

About Luna & Larry's Organic Coconut Bliss! 
 Luna & Larry's Organic Coconut Bliss are wonderful ice cream products free from dairy, soy and gluten. Coconut Bliss is made from all certified organic and fair trade ingredients.This ice cream is like no other, made with coconut milk and sweetened with agave syrup. There are 10 yummy flavors to choose from as well as 2 different ice cream bars. 

Our Coconut Bliss Experience! 

I was super excited when Luna & Larry's Organic Coconut Bliss sent me 2 coupons to try out their non-dairy ice cream. This was the first ice cream I ate since starting my healthy diet since the end of February. I had a difficult time deciding what flavors I wanted to try out because they all sound so yummy. I finally decided on something that I really would like as well as something that my husband would really like. I love chocolate so I was drawn to the Chocolate Hazelnut Fudge. My husband loves coconut flavored ice cream so of course I picked up the Naked Coconut for him.

I first tried out the Chocolate Hazelnut Fudge flavor which has organic hazelnuts and a thick chocolate fudge ribbon in the ice cream. Oh wow, this was wonderful! This ice cream is super thick and creamy. Also very flavorful and the chocolate fudge ribbon was so good. Yum!

Next we both tried the Naked Coconut. I really enjoyed this flavor as well and the coconut flavor wasn't too strong. I didn't say anything to my husband about the ice cream until after he tried it. He really liked the Naked Coconut and he could not tell it was different from any other type of ice cream he eats (he does not follow my healthy eating so he still consumes a lot of sugar!).

Seriously you can not tell this is a non-dairy ice cream that is not sweetened with sugar. The texture is very smooth and creamy like a high quality ice cream. Since it is sweetened with agave you also do not experience any sugar crash. I have tried other brands of non-dairy ice creams from the health food store and Coconut Bliss tastes so much better. I also took the time to look at all the ingredient lists on the other ice creams at Whole Foods and did not find any other brand that was made with agave syrup. All other brands used sugar or evaporated cane juice!  I love the Luna & Larry's Organic Coconut Bliss ice cream products!

                                    We get coconut ice cream for Tate because of the dairy allergy, mild soy intolerance and the stuff made from rice milk is gross(IMO). We tried their mint galactica and it tastes better than real mint chocolate chip ice cream! I would love to try the pineapple coconut, but I can almost guarantee Tate would want chocolate peanut butter!

                                    I am following you via google connect (justine417) and I checked out their items...Wow I'd love to try their Pineapple Coconut, Chocolate Peanut Butter, and every other flavor! Seriously, I'm a coconut addict and I have never seen these before so I'm gonna go get some!
