Vegan Ice Cream

By Anna Starostinetskaya | April 25, 2016

Our summer calendars are full of ice cream-related activities thanks to NadaMoo!’s four new flavors.

Warm weather is on the horizon, which can mean only one thing … ice cream! Luckily, Austin-based vegan ice cream companyNadaMoo!’s four new flavors made with creamy coconut milk have “summer” written all over them. Our plans for the next few months include scooping the luscious Salted Caramel into our almond-milk lattes, porch-sitting with a pint of Pistachio, sandwiching mounds of Chocolate Cherry Fudge Brownie between actual brownies, and serving up sundaes made with That Snickerdoodle Dough—a cinnamony flavor with cookie dough bites dispersed throughout. Care to join?

NadaMoo! Is On A Mission To Make Ice Cream Great Again!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

WOW, how we’ve been busy! This March we became a N A T I O N W I D E brand, thanks to our partnership with Whole Foods Market. We’ve also added four new flavors to our lineup: Pistachio Nut, Chocolate Cherry Fudge Brownie, Salted Caramel, and That Snickerdoodle Dough (see what we did there?) for a total of 15 delicious flavors! We’ve added some quirky-fun flavor choices with a touch of decadence to our creamy, delicious family. These new flavors are hitting freezers in the Southwest, California, Pacific Northwest, Midwest and Northeast this spring. For more deets, follow our social media handles for new store announcements!

Make Ice Cream Great Again

Next to eating our finished ice cream, innovating new flavors and tasting potential ingredients is a real culinary hi-light at the office. We again partnered with Better Bites Bakery, a local vegan and gluten free baker’s heaven to bring you the snicker doodle bites and fudge brownies in our new flavors. NadaMoo’s commitment to gluten free and vegan ingredients is enhanced by partnerships like these: all of our flavors are made with USDA Organic and Kosher ingredients and have been submitted to the Non-GMO Project for verification. We go all the way with using Fair Trade USA certified cacao and agave nectar, so several of our flavors are also Fair Trade certified. At the end of the day, we’re making ice cream, but using high quality, clean ingredients that TASTE good!

By now you’ve probably become inundated with all the excitement that comes with being in an election year. Because we try not to take ourselves too seriously, and because making dairy-free treat seems like a campaign in and of itself, we made hats that read, “Make Ice Cream Great Again!” Yup, you heard that right – we’re having a little election-year fun by starting our own line of hats and tees to express our #PintSizedRevolution. The only candidate we’re endorsing is our own President and CEO, who leads the helm by sporting his hat on his morning run.

Head on over to the shop on our website for our line of tees and hats. And now, not just for frosty beverages, are our own line of pint coozies to keep your paw from freezing while you Netflix and chill. Wanna spoon, anyone? Follow along Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Snapchat, and Instagram for field notes, yummy recipes, new store announcements, and special store sales. And from the bottom of our tiny, frozen hearts (just kidding), thank you for supporting our family-owned treat.

NadaMoo! Frozen Coconut Desserts Roll Out at Whole Foods Nationwide

By | Press Release, Press Releases | No Comments

By Elaine Watson | April 7, 2016

When NadaMoo frozen coconut dessert first hit shelves at Whole Foods in Austin, Texas, in 2005, the target audience was vegans and people with food intolerances. Today, it’s sharing real estate with Ben & Jerry’s and enjoyed by consumers across multiple demographics, including dairy ice cream lovers, says CEO Daniel Nicholson.

“Back in 2004, we were the first ones doing this,” adds Nicholson, who became financial controller at NadaMoo! in 2008 and took the helm in 2011

“And we were probably catering mostly to rigorous vegans. Today, we’re catering to anyone and everyone, although I think Millennials are definitely buying into our product and our brand in particular.”

“At the beginning, our founder Amy Ramm was making the product herself and supplying it to a local juice shop and it caught the attention of a Whole Foods regional buyer. I don’t think she even had a brand name at that point, but he basically said, if you put it into pints, we’ll sell this product at Whole Foods.”

“There were dairy-free products on the market at the time, but they were generally soy, rice or almond based, so coconut was something really new.”

This year we fully expect to grow well into the triple digits.

While the Austin, Texas-based company has grown steadily since its launch, things have really picked up in the past couple of years as the plant-based food revolution has taken off and non-dairy options have captured a sizable share of the “milk” category and are staring to make inroads into every part of the store, says Nicholson.

And 2016 looks set to be a record year, predicts Nicholson, with four new flavors in the portfolio and a nationwide roller at Whole Foods starting this month. The product, which is in around 2,000 stores including Vitamin Cottage, Safeway/Albertsons, Raley’s and Save Mart is also rolling out to more than 250 H.E.B. stores… …

Vegan Ice Cream Company Experiencing Triple-Digit Growth

By | Press Release, Press Releases | No Comments

By Anna Starostinetskaya | April 7, 2016

The dairy-free ice cream market is exploding with a number of national brands, including Nada Moo!.

Austin-based vegan ice cream brand Nada Moo! recently expanded to Whole Foods Markets nationwide and has rolled out four new flavors, including That Snickerdoodle Dough, Chocolate Cherry Fudge Brownie, Pistachio Nut, and Salted Caramel. Nada Moo! CEO Daniel Nicholson told food news outlet Food Navigator that the company has experienced a 75-percent growth rate every year and expects this year to bring them into triple digits. While Nada Moo! launched in 2004 with a focus on marketing its coconut milk-based products to vegans and those with dairy allergies, Nicholson says that the company currently is “catering to anyone and everyone,” particularly millennials. When it comes to what Nicholson thinks of large companies such as Ben & Jerry’s entering the dairy-free market, he stated, “I think it’s neat that brands like us and Coconut Bliss have started a pint-sized revolution that some of the larger brands now want to be a part of.”

NadaMoo! visits Seattle for VegFest

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

We were very excited to attend our very first VegFest in Seattle and meet our new fans! Seattle VegFest is known as the largest vegetarian food event in the United States, so the opportunity to explore our sister city had piqued our interest from the start! Our team of happy campers made it a long weekend and brought 36 gallons of ice cream, some give away swag, and as we were told, the Texas sun! We couldn’t have asked for nicer weather and immediately fell in love with the city. We spent as much time as possible outside and explored with pints in hand, capturing Insta-worthy moments and loving all of the flowers in bloom. We come from cactus territory, so the color was a real treat!

NadaMooSeattle

Seattle has a lot to offer its visitors: the modern architecture, city parks, and bustling vegan and vegetarian food scene kept us entertained. Had we more time, we’d have checked out the Experience Music Project or ridden the Space Needle and… eaten in more vegan restaurants. We’d never seen so much variety!

Saturday kicked off the VegFest, so we started our day with a big breakfast and headed to the event for some scooping! We were all very excited and grateful to receive compliments from the locals. They loved our taste, texture, amount of sweetness, and said, “NadaMoo tastes just like regular ice cream!” Being the new kids on the block, we took time to speak to the brand and share our story. One of our most memorable moments was visiting with a lactose-intolerant man, who hadn’t had ice cream for 25 years and was able to enjoy ice cream again! By the end of the first day, we’d time traveled through the majority of our product! By midday Sunday, we’d scooped through 36 gallons of ice cream and made lots of new friends. The event was a huge success and was very well run, so kudos to Stewart and his team of volunteers. We would definitely do it again!

NadaMoo Seattle 2

We’d like to extend a warm “thank you” to our fans and your commitment to a clean, vibrant city that
supports small businesses like ours. Seattle has a vibrant plant-based community, and we met lots of wonderful people on our trip to VegFest!

Take a peek at #nadamoo to follow Insta-fame and drop us a note to share where you’d like to find NadaMoo in Washington. We want to make sure our treat make its way into the hands of those who have shown us support!

NadaMoo! Breastmilk Ice Cream Now Available Nationwide!

Committed to maintain the highest standards of vegan, fair trade, organic and non-GMO certified human breastmilk based ice cream treats #FreeTheNipple

 

(AUSTIN, TX) April 1, 2016- NadaMoo!, Austin based dairy-free coconut milk ice cream, officially launches their most innovative product to date MamaMoo! an organic breastmilk based ice cream. Two new flavors Vanilla Boob-erry and Double D-ark Chocolate are now available nationwide. They have decided to partner with a local Austin breastmilk bank for all of their sourcing. The gluten-free, zero cholesterol, agave sweetened frozen dessert company expands their growing product line to include one of the most highly nutritional milks available to humankind.

New Vanilla Boob-erry Flavor!

New Vanilla Boob-erry Flavor!

This is the first foray outside of coconut milk based products for the frozen dessert company. Staying true to their roots, all breastmilk will be sourced from vegan females who have followed a strict all organic, non-GMO, and gluten-free diet for at least five calendar years. NadaMoo! has provided all the nursing moms with Bamboobies, natural, ultra-soft nursing pads made with renewable bamboo rayon velour, to give their new mama nipples a little TLC. With so much science behind the healing and recovery properties and high nutritional value of human breastmilk, NadaMoo! wanted to be the first to market with a breastmilk based product.

NadaMoo! President and CEO Daniel Nicholson, an avid marathon runner, found out about the protein and enzymes in breastmilk through his running community. “I wanted to bring awareness to a growing market for breastmilk and all it has to offer to people who are living active and healthy lifestyles,” says Nicholson. The agave sweetened breastmilk ice cream product is high in fat content making it a creamy and delicious treat for all ages. “We expect this to take off in the health and exercise communities first before the masses catch on,” says Nicholson. The company has a loyal vegan following, so the company took the time to make sure that the mothers providing their milk were compensated through fair trade practices and held to the highest dietary standards to ensure the highest quality product.

NadaMoo! Vanilla Boo-berry and Double D-ark Chocolate are now exclusively available on their website and in select natural and specialty retailers nationwide. Please visit nadamoo.com for more information.

 

ABOUT: NadaMoo! is a dairy-free, zero cholesterol, gluten-free, lower calorie and lower carb ice cream made from coconut milk. Established in Austin in 2004, NadaMoo! was founded with a mission to make the world happier and healthier, one scoop at a time. Since NadaMoo! is made with the cream of the coconut, each pint retains the creamy taste and texture of regular ice cream while remaining dairy- and gluten-free. Sweetened with agave nectar, NadaMoo! has roughly half the fat and calories of not only ice cream, but also similar dairy-free alternatives. The company makes its products in Texas and is dedicated to using organic, kosher, Fair Trade Certified and gluten-free ingredients whenever possible in support of a fair, sustainable and contaminant-free food chain. Owned by his South Texas family, President and CEO Daniel Nicholson has led the company’s expansion into new regions and points of distribution across the nation without forgetting his roots. NadaMoo! is available in natural, conventional, specialty and co-op grocery stores nationwide. For more information, visit nadamoo.com or follow @NadaMoo on Twitter and Instagram.

2016 Expo West Product Reviews – Veggies Save the Day

By | Press Release, Press Releases | No Comments

We are very honored to be included as one of the best products from Natural Product Expo West 2016 by blogger Amy Katz from Veggies Save the Day.


 

Over 70,000 people attend the Natural Products Expo West every year to sample new healthy, natural and organic products. Seeing all 3,000 exhibits is next to impossible, but I did my best to find exciting new foods and beverages that will be coming soon to a store near you. I narrowed my large list down to eight to share with you.

Expo West 2016

Nada Moo is one of the creamiest non-dairy ice creams I’ve ever eaten. My go-to flavor of this coconut-based dessert is the Cookies & Cream, but the new That Snickerdoodle Dough is pretty amazing.

Non-Dairy Ice Cream That Doesn’t Actually Suck

By | Press Release, Press Releases | No Comments

BY 

According to modern scientists, most human adults aren’t supposed to drink milk, because of the genome which produces lactase — something about enzymes and being old and not being able to digest it and other buzzkills. That especially sucks, because ice cream is kind of the best.

So let’s say you want some ice cream but can’t have dairy. You probably saw that Ben & Jerry’s recently released four new non-dairy flavors, but B&J’s isn’t the only non-dairy frozen dessert in town. Between the major national grocery chains, roughly 10 companies combine to sell a whopping 60 flavors. Unfortunately, most of the flavors taste like they came out the wrong end of a cow.

But not all of them. In the interest of helping our dairy-free friends, we’ve cracked open the best pints to fill you in on the non-dairy ice cream that still actually tastes like ice cream. With most of them, we couldn’t even tell that we weren’t eating the real thing.

NadaMoo! Cookies & Crème

Base: Coconut
Certifications: Dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan, kosher
Tasting notes: Cream, vanilla, chocolate cookie
Our choice for second-best non-dairy frozen dessert on the market, NadaMoo! Cookies & Crème gives us hope for the future. For one day, when Earth gets visited by hostile aliens that demand intensely smooth, intensely creamy non-dairy ice cream with enough thick chunks of sweet chocolate cookie to satisfy their leader, known to the galaxy as the Cookie Connoisseur, we will present them with NadaMoo!, and they will be pleased. And there will be great rejoicing, and all manner of thing shall be well.

NadaMoo! Vanilla Cha-Cha-Chai

Base: Coconut
Certifications: Dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan, kosher
Tasting notes: Chai
Boom! It’s a chai-flavored, vanilla, non-dairy frozen dessert. Your move, ice cream.

Pre-SXSweat Community Workout in Austin

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Yesterday, Nadamoo teamed up with Camp Gladiator, TriggerPoint Therapy, and Chameleon Cold-Brew to host a Pre-SXSweat Community workout at the heart of Austin! We wanted to give Austinites a fun way to workout for free and have a very deserving, delicious post-workout treat. From burpees to foam rolling to slinging scoops of ice cream, we all enjoyed this event so much. It was so wonderful to see the local community and brands team up for such a great cause. We were happy to see some old and new faces trying our healthy ice cream. Attendees were able to pick a scoop of either Vanilla…ahhh!, Vanilla Cha-Cha-Chai, or Gotta Do Chocalate, or mix it with some Chameleon Cold-Brew coffee and make what we liked to call a Dirty Chai (Vanilla Chai + Coffee), Tuxedo (Vanilla + Coffee), or Midnight (Chocolate +Coffee) drink. Huge thanks to Jordan Jones from Camp Gladiator for planning this awesome event. We are looking forward to the next one! Stay tuned for more exciting events in March!

By | Press Release, Press Releases | No Comments

NadaMoo!, Austin based dairy-free coconut milk ice cream, officially launches in Whole Foods stores nationwide this month. The gluten-free, zero cholesterol, agave sweetened frozen dessert company will also introduce four new flavors to its lineup that will be available in select markets. The new flavors are Chocolate Cherry Fudge Brownie, Pistachio Nut, Salted Caramel and That Snickerdoodle Dough. The four new flavors will first be available in the Southwest region.

The addition of four new flavors will give the company a total of fifteen flavors which will be sampled at Expo West, the world’s largest organic and health products trade show, in Anaheim, California this month. The four new flavors continue NadaMoo’s commitment to transparent and clean ingredients with all of their products certified Fair Trade, kosher, vegan, gluten-free, organic and Non-GMO.

NadaMoo! President and CEO Daniel Nicholson recently took a trip to Thailand to visit one of their coconut producers. “The trip left me feeling inspired and I returned wanting to grow our business as one that truly makes a difference to those that work for us and the people who enjoy NadaMoo!,” said Nicholson. The trip was documented by a local filmmaker and the film will debut in Austin this year. The short film will highlight NadaMoo!’s journey as a family run business that is committed to quality working with teams across the globe. “2016 is a big year for us with the launch of four new flavors and being available nationwide in Whole Foods. We are excited for what the future holds for NadaMoo! as a local business with global reach,” says Nicholson.

In addition to the nationwide Whole Foods launch, NadaMoo! will also be available in over 250 HEB stores across Texas starting in April, up from 100 stores. The new availability of NadaMoo! makes it one of the most widely distributed frozen dessert products that is made in Texas. For more information on local retailers, please visit www.nadamoo.com/find-us/.
