First Bite: Non-dairy and delicious ice cream?

Our senior food editor, Kelsey Blackwell, receives dozens of new food products from natural manufacturers. Each week, she'll choose one intriguing item to feature in the Instagram video series First Bite. In 20 seconds, Kelsey will try the product and share her honest thoughts. This week's spotlight: Steve's Cold-Brewed Cinnamon Coffee non-dairy ice cream.

Can this new non-dairy ice cream from Steve's truly deliver? I put it to the test in this week's episode of First Bite.

First thoughts: Unbelievable! This is dairy free? Amazingly creamy and decadent—possibly the best texture of any dairy-free ice cream I've come across. What non-dairy milk is used?  Ahhh … organic coconut cream. Robust coffee cinnamon flavor masks the coconut.  This will be a new staple in my house.

Yay! Tastes like a true indulgence, not a poor facsimile of the real deal. Love the not-too-sweet coffee flavor, and use of organic ingredients.

Nay!  If only it was distributed nationally. Steve, when you coming to Colorado?

Overall rating: 5 bites
