We’ve discovered the perfect treat for these steamy summer days and we just can’t keep it to ourselves! Craig’s Vegan Ice Cream is ridiculously yummy, but that’s not the only reason you’ll feel good eating it. Read on and you’ll be over the moon about this tantalizing discovery.
1. It has about half the calories of dairy ice cream
Ice cream is the quintessential summer indulgence, but sometimes we restrain ourselves or feel guilty afterwards. So many calories! I mean, a cup of Ben and Jerry’s Chocolate Peppermint Crunch ice cream is almost 600 calories. That’s insane! Compared to Craig’s Vegan Melrose Mint Chip: a cup is only 330 calories. And let me tell you, the Melrose Mint Chip has a taste worth closing your eyes for.
2. It’s cashew-based and you can’t tell
As the name proudly advertises, Craig’s Vegan Ice Cream is completely vegan! It’s cashew-based. So for those of us avoiding dairy products for a multitude of reasons, we can happily support Craig’s. No animals are necessary to make this sinfully delicious ice cream, and if you have any dairy-based dietary restrictions, it’s the perfect treat.
3. The packaging is impressively environmentally friendly
Every time I receive a shipment of Craig’s, I’m impressed with the packaging. I always appreciate when a company is thoroughly committed to their principles. Craig’s Vegan is committed to a fantastic dessert without any animal products, but their responsibility and ethics doesn’t stop there. The box contains an insulation by a company called ClimaCell. It’s not only effective at keeping the ice cream cold, but it’s made from plant-based materials! Talk about sustainability. You can learn more at temperpack.com.
From www.biospace.com: “ClimaCell is the only curbside recyclable thermal insulation material to receive the “Widely Recyclable” designation from How2Recycle®, a program of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition. Because it is plant-based rather than plastic-based, ClimaCell reduces CO2 emissions by 86% compared to Styrofoam.” ClimaCell is even mentioned in this “Future of Food” article in National Geographic.
