With springtime upon us, and summer lingering ever so near, healthy desserts are simply a must to keep us satisfied and beach ready. And no dessert is quite so appealing on a hot day than a scoop (or two) or luscious ice cream! So we’ve complied a list of some of our fave dairy-free ice creams here at Sporteluxe HQ, both brands you can buy at your local health food store and a raw ice cream hotspots.
From the health food store
With Coyo claiming to be “heaven in a mouthful” on the tub our expectations were pretty high. But we’re happy to report they’ve come pretty close with this creamy coconut based treat. The flavours include acai and vanilla, which is perfect teamed with fresh summer fruits however our fave is probably decadent chocolate!
Let this delicious organic treat hits the spot with nothing artificial. Like Coyo it is coconut milk based and we’re impressed by the inventive flavours such as chai, cookie dough, chilli chocolate and even Christmas. Let’s get jolly and tuck into this decadent natural treat.
Like the sound of frozen chocolate and coffee cashew yogurt? We do too! Botanical Cuisine takes your sweet treats to a whole new healthy level. This decadent raw, organic frozen yogurt boasts a high content of protein due to the cashews, in addition to health benefits such as magnesium and calcium from the raw cacao. Nourishing our bodies has never been more delicious!

This cool Balaclava cafe makes clean eating ever so easy! Think almond chai lattes, buckwheat apple pancakes served with raw cinnamon ice cream.
