Ice Cream Scoops

By | Press Release

By Denise Leathers, Frozen and Refrigerated Buyer

Another fast-growing pint segment is the best-for-you subcategory. Whether free-from, protein-packed or non-dairy, these so-called healthy frozen desserts appeal to those consumers who either limit ice cream consumption (about a third of the population, according to a survey commissioned by Arctic Zero) or avoid it altogether (a fourth of all consumers) because they think it’s not good for them, reports Pandhi.

Often selected more for what they don’t contain rather than what they do, “Fit frozen desserts like Arctic Zero give health-conscious people who love ice cream a reason to reach into the freezer again,” he says. Made with hormone-free whey protein instead of milk and cream (so, technically, it’s a frozen dairy dessert, not ice cream), the line if lactose-free, GMO-free, low-glycemic and low-cal and includes several fat-free and low-fat options.

Another pint segment registering strong growth recently is dairy-free,.In fact, reports IRI, non-dairy sales shot up nearly 50% last year. Among the latest additions to the category is a pair of new coconut milk varieties from Austin, Texas-based NadaMoo. Like the company’s current flavors, both Birthday Cake Cookie Dough and The Rockiest Road are certified Fair Trade, vegan, gluten-free, organic and non-GMO.

5 Ways to Celebrate a Vegan Mother’s Day with Your Mom

By | Events, Press Release

By Rebecca Sykes

Show your mom you love her with vegan food, gifts, and fun.

A vegan Mother’s Day is the perfect way to celebrate everything your mom has done for you. And with so many amazing cruelty-free foods, cosmetics, restaurants, and films, you can spoil your mother all of Sunday, and well into Monday! From treating her to a yummy plant-based lunch or buying her adorable vegan jewelry, here are our five favorites ways we’ll be celebrating with our moms this weekend.

1. Cook her a vegan meal
Breakfast in bed has always been the cliché of Mother’s Day, so don’t do it. Instead, cook her a vegan breakfast to enjoy in the kitchen so no one makes a mess in bed. However, why not surprise your mom with a vegan breakfast for dinner? Breakfast burritos with tofu scramble, bell peppers, onions, and roasted potatoes is a delicious way to celebrate your mom, and she’ll never expect it! Or, why not make something sweet for her such as maple-peanut butter pancakes or a vegan lemon curd for dessert?

2. Take her to a vegan restaurant
If cooking isn’t your forté, take your mom to a vegan restaurant and let her splurge. This tip might seem obvious, but sometimes obvious is best. By taking your mom out for a meal, you’re expressing your thanks for all of her hard work. Plus, everyone likes having someone else prepare their meals (and do the dishes), so going out to eat definitely earns you mega-points in the parent-offspring relationship. A few of our favorites include No Bones Beach Club, Millennium, Crossroads Kitchen, Chicago Diner, Fare Well, Modern Love Brooklyn, and Vedge.

3. Give her a personalized gift
With the hassle of making food (or going to a restaurant) out of the way, it’s time for gifts. There’s nothing wrong with giving flowers and vegan chocolates, but if these are too generic for you, try Etsy.com, where you’ll find a plethora of unique vegan gifts. One shop called Crobinson Design sells vegan jewelry such as heart-shaped necklaces that say “Vegan Mom” on them, but designer/owner Christy Robinson can do custom orders if you want your jewelry to say something else. There are many other vegan options (ranging from t-shirts to vegan soap) on Etsy if you want to get your mom something other than jewelry.

4. Watch a movie
Who doesn’t love staying in and binge watching TV shows and movies, especially with your best friend? No one, so pick up some of your mom’s favorite movies and maybe some movies with some vegan actors such as Joaquin Phoenix or Rooney Mara. You can always watch documentaries such as Cowspiracy, What The Health, and Vegucated to educate each other more on the vegan lifestyle. Seeing as how no movie night is complete without a slice or three, make your mom some vegan pizza with pineapple, mushrooms, and/or peppers. Once the pizza is gone, bust out a carton of NadaMoo’s Rocky Road, Birthday Cake, Snickerdoodle, or Chocolate Peanut Butter flavors. Now that’s a happy Mother’s Day!

5. Vegan spa day
A vegan spa day is not only a wonderful idea for your mom but for yourself as well, so treat her like a queen with a fun outing that includes getting a mani-pedi, a massage, and a haircut. However, finding vegan spas/salons can be difficult, so call your local spas/salons to see if they carry any cruelty-free, vegan friendly lines, such as Aveda. Another option is to treat her in the comfort of her (or your) home. Hire a massage therapist to come to your house, and you can supply the cruelty-free massage oils. A DIY home spa—think facial masks and manicures—is another fun way to spend time together while pampering Mom. For inspiration, check out YouTube star Rawvana’s easy-to-make skincare recipes.

There are so many wonderful products at Vegfest every year and many are new to our region. One of our favorites is Nadomoo!  As its name implies it’s a dairy free ice “cream”.

Nadamoo! was a big hit at Vegfest so we decided to find out more. Here’s how they answered some of our questions. I’ve just got to try the Birthday Cake Cookie Dough!

When did your company start? Our company was started in 2004 in Austin, TX.

How would you describe your product? It’s the best tasting ice cream on the market! We think that just because it’s non-dairy doesn’t mean that it should lack in flavor. We have the creamiest, richest most ice cream-like plant-based product out there, or at least we think so!

What motivated you to begin? What’s Nadamoo! all about? NadaMoo! is a family brand that was created by our founder so that her sister, who suffered from food allergies, could enjoy ice cream with the rest of their family. Needless to say, we are all about family and inclusion. We want everyone to enjoy our dessert regardless of dietary restrictions.

What interested you in expanding into the Northwest? Just like Austin, we know there are lots of customers in the Northwest looking for organic, non-dairy desserts. We believe in transparency and creating a clean label.

How many kinds of Nadamoo! are there? What are the newest varieties? There are currently 15 flavors of NadaMoo! The newest flavors are Birthday Cake Cookie Dough and The Rockiest Road which were released in February 2017. Chocolate Peanut Butter was just released in May 2017!

Where can I buy Nadamoo! products locally?  Our products are currently available in Whole Foods Markets in Seattle, Bellevue, Redmond, Lynnwood, and University Place, and also at the Metropolitan Market in Tacoma (Proctor) and Sno-Isle Coop in Everett.

Grilled Donuts with Strawberries and Cream

By | Dessert Recipes

Delicious grilled donuts with strawberries and cream will become one of your favorite desserts! 

It’s a good feeling to think I survived the first year of my masters program because I really didn’t think that I would. Don’t get me wrong. There have been a lot of times that I’ve wondered if it’s the right thing to do with everything else going on in my life but I usually get my answer pretty quick that it is. It’s just stressful. Most of my worries stem from wondering if I’m smart enough. But I’m slowly plugging away and getting it done. And now I’m on the downhill. One more year.

The break from papers will be nice but I’m not going to lie–I am exhausted and need to spend my entire week break packing for our move. It always seems to be one thing after another. But that’s life, the house is a mess but everything  is good.

To celebrate I pulled out my indoor grill (the weather still isn’t quite to outdoor grilling season) and made some dessert to celebrate. This recipe is so simple and easy because you can just throw on the donuts as the grill is still hot from dinner. This grill has already gotten a lot of use around our house. Cooking just isn’t happening with the move in a few weeks so crockpot meals and grilling have been my go to.

These grilled donuts are amazing hot off the grill. The grilled part is crispy and has a delicious grilled flavor while the frosting on the donuts melts into a mouth watering flavor. The combination together is nothing short of heaven. Top it with some strawberries and cream and yeah, it can only be described as heavenly.

We All Scream for Ice Cream!

Where do these ‘nice creams’ rank in our taste test? The AFM Staff reviews healthier ice cream options to keep you fit and cool all summer long.

By Austin Fit Magazine


​Some may say that non-dairy ice cream is a sacrilege, but those people probably haven’t tasted NadaMoo. Not only is it made with coconut milk instead of dairy milk, it’s also a certified organic and vegan product. Most flavors are well-balanced, and the sweetness is achieved through the use of agave nectar. This locally-made ice cream will win you over—regardless of whether you have a lactose sensitivity or not.

Lactose-free: Yes

“The cookies & crème flavor was my favorite. I’m so surprised that it isn’t made with milk or cream.”

“The mint chip ice cream was clean, minty, and just sweet enough.”

“Soft texture, but with lots of chunks!”

“Being Kind is Cool” at New Vegan Scoop Shop

By Anna Starostinetskaya


Austin’s Vicecreme opens with a compassionate message and incredible vegan ice cream, banana-based soft serve, sundaes, shakes, and more.

Vegan ice cream shop Vicecreme opened on Earth Day last Saturday in Austin, TX. The interior of the shop—owned by brother-and-sister-team Mike Limongelli and Gina Galvan—is emblazoned with the message “Being Kind is Cool,” and offerings include six flavors of hard ice cream, banana-based soft serve, shakes, ice cream sandwiches, and three-scoop sundaes. New flavors—such as maple pecan for fall—will be introduced seasonally, and current toppings include chocolate cookies, peanut butter, chocolate chips, marshmallows, and whipped “creme.” There is no shortage of vegan treats in Austin, as evidenced by the rapid growth of local ice cream company NadaMoo!, which, in addition to adding two new flavors to its coconut milk-based line, expanded to Sprouts stores nationwide last year.
