The Best Dang Vegan Gelato
Who doesn't like gelato!? Especially gelato that is dairy-free, gluten-free, and most definitely vegan! I know, I know, there have been quite a bit of tasty vegan ice creams come out in the last year or so but have you ever heard of one that uses avocados in lieu of the 'traditional' nice cream bases? All of the vegan ice creams and gelati (yup that's the plural of gelato) that I have seen or even tried have been nut or soy-based. RIPE Avocado Gelato, however, is made from...you guessed it, avocados!
In my book, taste is king and texture is queen. I mean if something tastes amazing but the texture is weird or off it can be hard to eat, right? So, let's talk texture. Creaminess is of the utmost importance when it comes to gelato, so what do you get when you make a nice cream out of avocados instead of nuts or soy? The creaminess level goes through the roof. It goes from "yum that's creamy" to "dang this is the most lucious creamy goodness ever". RIPE Avocado Gelato is the creamiest velvety nice cream you might ever taste, seriously.
On top of its texture being on point, it's enticingly delicious too! Yes, it is made out of avocados, but it doesn't taste like them. Don't get me wrong, I love avocados as much as the next gal, that doesn't mean I want mouth-watering vegan gelato tasting like them though. Instead, it takes on the flavor of the cacao, pumpkin spice, or the maple (depending on which flavor you go with). You get the benefits of the avocado's creamy texture and the sweet, taste bud tantalizing flavor of the other main ingredients, can't go wrong with that.
So it's sounding almost too good to be true, is it healthy? This is seriously the healthiest nice cream I have ever had and it's jam packed with superfoods. The ingredients are as follows:
Cacao - Avocado puree (organic avocado, water), organic raw cacao, organic maple syrup, organic pink Himalayan salt, organic guar gum
Pumpkin Spice - Avocado puree (organic avocado, water), organic pumpkin, organic maple syrup, organic cinnamon, organic nutmeg, organic ginger, organic pink Himalayan salt, organic guar gum
Maple - Avocado puree (0rganic avocado, water), organic maple syrup, organic pink Himalayan salt, organic vanilla extract, organic guar gum
So as far as ingredients go, the cacao and maple flavors contain a total of five and the pumpkin spice a whopping eight ingredients. Have you seen a cleaner ingredient list for gelato? I sure haven't.
I think at this point we can all agree that the world would be better off if this luscious goddess of a gelato, was widely available, right!? Part of the reason I wanted to share all of this with you is that RIPE Avocado Gelato recently launched on Kickstarter so we can all be a part of their tasty adventure! Think about it this way, if we all contribute one dollar they would meet their goal in no time at all and then the whole world would be that much better.
