I have received information and materials from McNeil Nutritionals, LLC the makers of LACTAID®. The opinions stated are my own. This is a sponsored post.
I scream, you scream, we all scream from ice cream. Yes, I said from. The reason for this is because I’m lactose intolerant and while I love this dreamy and creamy frozen treat, it definitely doesn’t love me back. I’m happy to say I found an alternative to the pain and discomfort “regular” ice cream causes me. I now enjoy Lactaid ice cream. It comes in many flavors, and it tastes great. It’s made with 100% real milk and cream, just without the lactose, so it’s easier for some of to digest. Now I can enjoy ice cream just as much as everyone else without the fear of the consequences later.
Lactaid flavors include Butter Pecan, Cookies & Cream, Chocolate, and Vanilla. Recently, they introduced two new and amazing flavors: Salted Caramel Chip and Berry Chocolate Crumble. Are you hungry yet?
Here’s the info on those two delicious concoctions.
Salted Caramel Chip Ice Cream is Sweet caramel swirls and chocolate chips are blended into smooth, premium ice cream. Berry Chocolate Crumble Ice Cream is made of ripe pureed berries and rich chocolate crumble, together in a lactose free ice cream. Don’t they both sound delicious? I couldn’t wait to try them.
I really loved both of them, but I think I liked the Berry Chocolate Crumble more because it had a little bit of a crunch. Either one of them are great with all sorts of toppings – berry sauce, caramel sauce, chocolate sauce, crumbled cookies, nuts, cherries…you name it. There are so many different flavors melded together in these two that just about any topping goes great. Need some inspiration? Lactaid has provided me with an awesome recipe I’ll share with you at the end of this post.
Think about all the amazing flavors Lactaid Ice Cream Comes in and then think about all of the toppings you could put on them. How many creations could you come up with? Even better, because it’s made with the same ingredients as lactose‐containing ice cream, you could use it for milkshakes, ice cream cakes, ice cream sandwiches, ice cream tortes, and so many other things!
