It’s the word that comes to mind when I think of how this summer has gone by. Starbucks is already releasing their Fall Pumpkin Spiced Latte–contain yourself. I’ve been gone for the month of July and a good part of August from Little Bliss Book I remorsefully admit. I needed to unplug from this part of the virtual world, and with having hit my 1-year of blogging, and nearly 100 posts later I needed the sense that I was shifting gears before I could get my feet wet again in Year 2 of LBB. Speaking of wet, it rained here in Florida nearly every other day — not quite the best lighting scenario for ample food photography. My kitchen saw less of me this summer as I was off skirting the town for new eateries (posts and pictures to come). And I found my summer love — with ice cream. Luna and Larry’s Coconut Bliss Ice Cream to be exact—specifically Salted Caramel & Chocolate. Mmph. So good. I. can’t. even.
I have a small…ok maybe a big obsession with Luna and Larry’s Coconut Bliss Ice Cream. Somehow the lovely people at Coconut Bliss could tell I had this obsession as well from the ice cream filled Oat Flour Crepes Recipe I posted and they asked me if I would like to try out a few of their flavors. I figured it’s been awhile since I’ve done a product review, and also I didn’t want to be rude, so naturally I said yes. That’s one thing in life a girl never denies when offered: good ice cream, good chocolate, good wine, and Ryan Gosling memes.
Luna and Larry’s Coconut Bliss ice creams are made with Coconut Milk, natural ingredients, and agave syrup. It’s a good alternative for anyone lactose-intolerant, vegan, Celiac, Soy intolerant, Gluten intolerant, or Diabetic.
Mint Galactica: I was hesitant to find out what coconut and mint tasted like together, but actually it’s pretty good. You don’t taste the coconut, and the mint is mild so it doesn’t taste like you’re eating toothpaste. t like it, but don’t LOVE it. But then again I’m not a Mint Ice Cream person, but my old roommate from college would love this.
Salted Caramel & Chocolate: MY FAVORITE! I was never big on salty and sweet together, but this is addicting. There’s chocolate shavings mixed right in, and need I say more about caramel.
Vanilla: Coconut and Vanilla are a classic. If I’m out of Salted Caramel & Chocolate — which I usually am — I reach for this flavor next.
Dark Chocolate: Coconut and Dark Chocolate is probably right up there in best classic flavor combination with Vanilla. They’re both a tie for me. I usually top with raspberries and coconut flakes.
To check out their full line up of flavors check out Coconut Bliss. Most of their ice creams can be found in Whole Foods, Fresh Market, and Earth Origins, among other specialty grocery stores.
For the remainder of the summer I’ll be off to Washington D.C. and New York, stay tuned for posts!
