Better Know A Vegan Ingredient: Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss Ice Cream

Alright. So ice cream may not be what everyone would consider an ingredient. But with a recipe for chocolate sauce and strawberry rhubarb crisp up on The Antique Appetite, it is time you got to know my favourite vegan ice cream, Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss.

People often assume that the thing I must miss most as a vegan is ice cream. But the fact is, it is the thing I miss the least. Not because I wasn’t a big ice cream fan before. Trust me. I was. It is because food innovators haven’t nailed anything quite like non dairy ice cream.

Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss was first introduced to me at The Vegetarian Food Festival in 2010. I haven’t looked back. The company was founded by, you guessed it, Luna and Larry in 2004. They bought a hand crank ice cream machine at Goodwill for $1.50 and made their first batch of coconut ice cream sweetened with agave nectar. Now, you can buy Coconut Bliss at regular grocery stores and health food stores all over North America. They keep a close relationship with the farmers of their coconuts in Thailand and maintain fair trade relations with the producers of their vanilla, cocoa, dark chocolate, and coffee.

Coconut Bliss comes in over a dozen flavours and I’m sure your favourite is one of them. I am a fan of Vanilla Island and am dying to try Cherry Amaretto. Yum!

  1. Thanks for the Coconut Bliss shout out! The Cherry Amaretto should be starting to pop up in stores all around you, if your favorite store doesn’t have it yet let them know you would love to see it there. Customer demand carries much more weight than a check in from us.
    Thanks again!
