Do you love delicious summer treats but hate what they do to your body during swimsuit season? It is hard to avoid all of those yummy treats, and if you are gluten free or trying Paleo, it can be almost painful to watch others enjoy a chilly ice cream cone on a hot afternoon. This summer you have a new option…Snow Monkey. The Snow Monkey Superfood Ice Treat is made from all natural ingredients without milk or nuts, and it has the same smooth, creamy texture as ice cream. With two flavors packed full of tasty, good for you ingredients, you couldn’t ask for a more delicious snack, and it is healthy enough you can even eat it for breakfast!
Snow Monkey is a Santa Monica startup which was founded by two women determined to change the way people eat. They wanted to revamp staple favorites like ice cream using only sustainably-sourced, plant based ingredients. As college students at Boston University, Rachel Geicke and Mariana Ferreira tried out their first recipe in their apartment kitchen eager to find a healthy snack that tastes good. They also wanted a product that can be enjoyed by many all the way from athletes in need of a high protein snack to those with allergies, heart healthy consumers, and the busy people out there looking for a healthier version of ice cream that is still delicious, which can be hard to find. Available in Goji Berry and Cacao, these ice treats are packed with superfoods and natural ingredients.
The fruity flavors of the Goji Berry are refreshing and sweet enough to quell just about any sweet tooth without any added sugar. My favorite part is that the ingredient list contains items that I actually know and can pronounce. The Goji Berry includes –
- Goji Berries
- Mixed Berries
- Sunflower Butter
For a more “traditional” ice cream flavor, the Cacao has a creamy and rich flavor but with healthy ingredients you won’t feel guilty about eating. In each spoonful you get…
- Pure Maple Syrup
- Hemp Seeds
- Guar Bean
- Acacia Tree Gum
These ice treats are vegan, gluten free, non-dairy, non-gmo, paleo, nut-free and packed with 20 grams of protein per pint. When you are a busy Mom, it is great knowing there are products like this that you can let your kids eat without feeling like you are packing them full of sugar and artificial ingredients all while sending them down a path of bad eating habits. Healthy can be delicious and Snow Monkey is proof.
Snow Monkey is available throughout southern and northern California and online. You can also stop by Natural Products Expo East in Baltimore during September 14-16, 2017 at the Hot Products Pavilion – Booth 8178 for a taste. Find a store near you today.
