Forager Project, a family-owned and operated plant-based food company based in Indio, California, has introduced a range of dairy-free ice cream that is free of lactose, dairy, soy and gluten and is certified organic and vegan. Made from cashew milk and other simple ingredients, the producer boasts that every spoonful is “delicate in flavor and creamy in texture, offering consumers a dairy-like ice cream experience without compromising taste and environmental impact.”
Five flavors are currently offered, as described below.
• Vanilla Bean: Creamy cashew milk blended with vanilla beans
• Bittersweet Chocolate: Loads of organic dutch cocoa and a creamy vanilla base, this combination creates a balanced yet bold bittersweet flavor
• Cookies & Cream: Crumbled chocolate sandwich cookies mixed into creamy rich vanilla ice cream
• Salted Caramel: Ready to be scooped or shaken, its caramel sweetness is blended into a creamy ice cream base
• Mint Chip: Chocolate bits and pieces are thoroughly mixed throughout a minty base
“This expansion into dairy-free ice cream is another step toward achieving our goal to make delicious, organic, plant-based food that leaves people amazed,” said Forager Project Co-Founder and CEO Stephen Williamson. “With our organic cashews ingredient, we’ve created our ice creams to give consumers a dairy-free treat that’s full of flavor and taste and free of pesticides, chemicals and GMOs.”
Forager’s new line is being rolled out at Whole Foods Markets, Natural Grocer’s, Market Basket, Earth Fare and other retail stores throughout the United States this spring. The suggested retail price is $6.99.
