NadaMoo! Announces ‘I’m Green’ Renewable Packaging Complete with a New Design in Celebration of its 15th Birthday

By | Big News, Press Release, Press Releases

Pioneer of the plant-based frozen dessert movement joins Evergreen Sentinel™ Renewable Ice Cream Board, offers consumers nationwide an even more sustainable ice cream experience

AUSTIN, Texas (March 2, 2020) – NadaMoo!, the original coconut milk frozen dessert, today announced new sustainable sugarcane-based bio resin polyethylene and paperboard packaging, and an updated design for its entire line of 16 flavors available at grocers nationwide, and at the NadaMoo! Scoop Shop in Austin. The new packaging is the latest sustainability milestone to be achieved by the Certified B Corporation. This year, the brand is also celebrating 15-years of offering foodies the creamiest plant-based ice creams made from organic coconuts and agave cultivated using low-impact, environmentally friendly farming practices.

Customers can expect to find the now even more sustainable NadaMoo! pints later this year at retailers nationwide where the plant-based ice cream pioneer is currently available. These include: Whole Foods Market, HEB, select Kroger banners, Publix, Sprouts, Stater Bros., Target, Walmart and the NadaMoo! Scoop Shop.

“The real value in the change is rooted in the fact that not only are the ingredients we source in crafting NadaMoo! done so in a sustainable way, now the components of the packaging material are also being sourced in a more sustainable manner,” said Daniel Nicholson, president and CEO, NadaMoo!. “It’s one of our core values to continually deliver the most delicious and environmentally friendly plant-based ice cream in the world. It really is at the heart of everything our brand stands for and has worked for since 2005.”

NadaMoo! selected Evergreen Packaging’s Sentinel™ Renewable Ice Cream Board for its new pints in recognition of the supplier’s sourcing of trees processed from responsibly managed forests and coating developed from sugarcane farms. Similar environmental concerns, and founding principles between the two organizations, such as the conversion of food waste for energy conservation purposes, ultimately led to the decision to work together. The lining in the new eco-friendly packaging is made with a renewable coating derived from sugarcane biomass. To ensure a seamless transition in its product offerings, NadaMoo! began testing the renewable packaging last year.

“We commend NadaMoo! on their decision to move to this packaging, and for extending their commitment to use responsibly sourced and eco-friendly produced ingredients to their packaging as well as their products,” said Chris Johns, vice president of paperboard sales & marketing, Evergreen Packaging. “We know that the use of renewable materials is a value that is central to NadaMoo! and we are happy to have the opportunity to work with them, and their packaging supplier, Stanpac on this important launch.”

“We are celebrating our 15th birthday this year and thought, what better way to make an impact than by offering consumers the most sustainably packaged plant-based ice cream,” added Nicholson. “Sort of a happy birthday to all of humankind, if you will.”

Along with the new packaging, NadaMoo! customers will notice a complete brand refresh featuring the newly certified I’m Green™ logo, updated flavor and ingredient descriptions, a more visible brand logo and color, and a blue and white swirled lid. The lid’s design pays homage to the look and feel of NadaMoo!’s Scoop Shop, which has awnings inspired by ice cream parlors of the 1950’s.

NadaMoo! crafts a frozen dessert that contains healthy fats with zero cholesterol, and sources high-quality ingredients that require less water and land to produce than ice cream crafted through standard, more water intensive farming practices. All 16 flavors of NadaMoo! are certified Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Vegan and Non-GMO. NadaMoo! is proud to use Certified Organic and Fair-Trade ingredients as much as possible.

“When great tasting food can be curated solely by plants, we take away the arguments most typically heard from the consumer driven solely by taste and experience,” added Nicholson. “Great tasting plant-based food becomes a win-win-win. We win on taste and experience for the consumer. We win for the health and well-being of all living creatures. We win on the sustainability of our planet.”

10 Allergen-Free Treats to Satisfy Any Sweet Tooth

NadaMoo! Non-Dairy Ice Cream in Lotta Mint Chip

With exactly the right amount of refreshing minty flavor, this might be one of the most delicious vegan ice creams on the market. We promise you won’t come across any gross, icy patches in your pint — just guaranteed creaminess in every spoonful. (Find NadaMoo! in a store near you here.)


Distribution Roundup: Sweets & Snacks Gain New Retailers

By | Press Release, Press Releases

450VanillaBy Carol Ortenberg | Aug 1st, 2016

NadaMoo Has Retailers Saying Yes

After a successful trade show season, NadaMoo (a line of non-dairy, coconut milk based, all natural ice cream) is seeing rapid expansion.

Before the summer, the line was sold in 1,500 stores including Whole Foods, Albertson’s HEB, Central Market, Vitamin Cottage, Bristol Farms and numerous independent retailers and co-ops.

In the past few months, the brand added 20-30 chains including HyVee, Earth Fare, and Fresh Thyme. Even more telling, several retailers expanded their relationships with the brand. Whole Foods nationwide, 190 HEB’s and more Albertson’s Divisions and Vitamin Cottages have all added the brand to shelves due to success in individual regions and tests.

The Austin, Texas-based brand was originally formed in 2004, but started to see national growth in later years. The line attributes this ascent, in part, to the growth of plant-based diets among consumers.


Nadamoo Dairy-Free Ice Cream: Made with Coconut Milk

By | Press Release, Press Releases

By Alisa Fleming | July 18th, 2016

Nadamoo has been around for over a decade, giving them plenty of time to concoct several amazing flavors. In fact, I’m updating this review yet again, to accommodate their latest creations.

Though technically labeled as “non-dairy frozen dessert”, Nadamoo has definitely earned the decadent title of ice cream. The rich coconut milk base is whipped to perfection, providing an indulgent, yet perfectly fluffy texture that allows an ice cream scoop to glide with ease, even straight from the freezer. It’s a truly creamy, dreamy melt in your mouth experience that even our resident coconut-hater enjoyed. Though some Nadamoo flavors do have notable coconut vibes, it was masked or melded beautifully in several varieties


Nadamoo Taste-Testing Round One

Our first panel of reviewers included myself, Tony and our niece, who does eat dairy, and is quite picky, to boot!

Lotta Mint Chip

We loved the luxurious texture and perfectly sweet, naturally minty flavor. I found the chocolate chips to be a little much. They were quite dark in taste, contrasting, and broke up the consistency. If Nadamoo switched from chips to flakes, I’d be sold.

Vanilla Cha-Cha-Chai

I’m the vanilla and chai lover in our house, so I was the final judge on this flavor. Wonderful depth, ultra-creamy, and intense vanilla tempered only by the deliciously bold spices. Unlike any other and sensational!

Gotta Do Chocolate

This one was rich with nary an underlying note of coconut. We all established it as a “good’ solid chocolate ice cream, but it did lack the wow factor.

Chocolate Almond Chip

There was a wonderful pure almond vibe that moved this Nadamoo flavor to a notch above the Chocolate in my book. It was packed with tasty little chocolate chips and the perfect smattering of nut chunks. Tony really liked it, and it reminded me of my mom’s favorite kind of ice cream.

Sweet Cherry Lime

Amazing and unique were words uttered by both me and my niece. We agreed that it was like a creamy slurpee sorbet. “It’s weird, but actually so good”, she said.

Java Crunch

It looked SO enticing, bursting from the package like a soft, fluffy cloud with very generous amounts of chocolate chips. But the taste was way too “coffee” for me. Fortunately, the other two tasters are java drinkers. Tony said “it’s good”, but my teenage niece said, “it’s okay, but kind of weird”.

Creamy Coconut

It sounded so generic: a coconut-flavored coconut milk dairy-free ice cream. But somehow Nadamoo turned this simplistic vegan dessert into an amazing experience. Surprisingly difficult to describe, it’s completely smooth, and doesn’t really smack you in the face with coconut. It’s just really darn delicious.

Bananas for PB & Chocolate

I had mixed feelings about this Nadamoo ice cream flavor. I love bananas, and who doesn’t love peanut butter and chocolate? But none of the flavors really asserted themselves, rather they tasted muddled into one. It was okay, but not the unique flavor bomb I had hoped for.


I’m a sucker for a good vanilla, and this one delivered. The consistency was rich and creamy with a touch or refreshing iciness. Every bite contained generous amounts of vanilla bean flecks. However, it does have relatively strong coconut undertones that at times compete with the warm, earthy spice.

mmm…Maple Pecan

If let loose in the grocery store with Nadamoo ice cream coupons, this is probably the dairy-free pint that I would buy first. I’m a sucker for this flavor combo, and wasn’t let down by the good, sweet, almost reliable maple-y deliciousness. It was missing just that little something to escalate it to new vegan ice cream heights. I’m not sure what, perhaps just a pinch of salt. Nonetheless, it was still quite stellar.


Nadamoo Taste-Testing Round Two

To trial the new 2016 batch of Nadamoo flavors (pictured above), I recruited two ice cream-loving friends. First up was Caroline of Grateful Foodie, and then another close friend, Raechelle. Since it’s been a couple of years since I reviewed the flavors above, and we had some new tasters, I opted to add the Vanilla to the mix for a point of reference.

Salted Caramel

This strange flavor had all of us stumped. We simply couldn’t describe it. Raechelle loved that she could taste the salty influence, which is often lacking in “salted” flavors. But none of us got caramel out of it. I thought it had some coffee influence, Caroline said it was a bit butterscotchy, and Raechelle just didn’t know. Overall, we all enjoyed it, and couldn’t stop taste-testing out of intrigue. And although the flavor was obviously influenced in some way by coconut milk, none of us could detect any distinctly coconut hints.

That Snickerdoodle Dough

This was the hands down winner for Raechelle and me. Caroline loved it, too, but couldn’t decide on her top pick. The wonderful cinnamon-bursting ice cream was creamier and less icy than the Vanilla, and none of us noticed any coconut flavor. The snickerdoodle cookie dough chunks were just generous enough, and had that wonderful sugary, addictive texture. Raechelle pointed out that it lacked that true “cream of tartar” snickerdoodle vibe, but she wasn’t complaining.

Pistachio Nut

Like the Vanilla, the consistency was creamy, but a little icy. However, there was an underlying richness that tasted a little buttery. For me, the pistachios gave the overall flavor a little too much of a “soapy” taste, for lack of a better word. However, Caroline really loved the nutty, pale green ice cream, but thought the big pistachio pieces overwhelmed at times.

Cookies & Creme

Caroline really liked this flavor and the fact that it had distinct dark chocolaty cookie chunks (these aren’t Oreos!) rather than a cookie-ice cream blend up. The base ice cream was a lot like their Vanilla, creamy and fluffy, but just a touch icy and refreshing. It had a little bit more of an “icing” flavor than vanilla, but unfortunately Raechelle and I thought the coconut milk overwhelmed at times rather than melding. We also wished there were more cookies. Often an entire scoop had just a few chunks.

Chocolate Cherry Fudge Brownie

Caroline loved this flavor, ranking it in a three-way tie for first place. It has a kid-like chocolate ice cream base that is more “cocoa” in taste and consistency than rich chocolate, but that was just bold enough to mellow the underlying coconut. The cherry flavor is subtle, but influencing, and makes itself known with occasional whole sweet cherry bites. There are some actual brownie pieces, but they are far and few between. In fact, I didn’t even know those cakey bites were in there until I had a second serving on another night. I’d actually love it if they added chocolate shavings or fudge instead.

10 Things We Can’t Wait to Eat at the Vegan Beer & Food Festival

By | Press Release, Press Releases


By Emily Hunt | June 9th, 2016

We’ve perused the menus for the Portland and Los Angeles Vegan Beer & Food Festivals, and—needless to say—we’re excited.

If there’s anything Oregonians and Californians know better than vegan food, it’s beer, which is what makes the upcoming Portland and Los Angeles Vegan Beer & Food Festivals must-attend events. From beer brewed by Belgian monks to vegan ramen bowls—soy egg included!—these two gatherings are enough to get you excited about adopting a cruelty-free diet all over again. Here are the top 10 things we can’t wait to sink our teeth into.

1. Vegan “KFC Double Down” at The Herbivorous Butcher
The Minneapolis-based makers of mock meat and cheese are preparing exclusive dishes for both events. Attendees will be able to snack on foot-long “jerky” made from wheat gluten and seasoned with both their signature Korean and Cajun marinades, while Portlandians can whet their taste buds with The Herbivorous Butcher’s exclusive “Walking Chicken and Waffles” meal—a waffle cone bowl filled with mashed potatoes, homemade seitan sausage gravy, two pieces of fried “chicken,” and maple syrup. Angelinos, however, will be served a vegan version of the KFC Double Down featuring two pieces of homemade fried “chicken” as a bun filled with homemade seitan bacon, garlic-pepper havarti cheese, lettuce, tomato, and homemade ranch dressing.

2. Deep-Fried Cheesesteak on a Stick at Southern Fried Vegan
If you’ve wanted to get down with Southern Fried Vegan’s fried chickun, collard greens, biscuits, and mac and cheese but have been continuously thwarted by the food truck’s ever-changing route, these events are for you. Those same gluttonous gobs of Southern goodness will be available at both festivals in its classic build-a-bowl setup. The vendor will also be frying up specials such as Deep-Fried Cheesesteaks on a Stick and Fried Chickun and Waffle Sandwiches.

3. Falafel Tacos at Falasophy Truck
“Falafel is a serious mental disease” is the darkly humored motto of this California-based food truck, and the garlic, chickpea, and eggplant-heavy menu of this Mediterranean-inspired purveyor is enough to drive us crazy. Falasophy—available only at the LA fest—will be serving turning up the heat with its classic falafel pita ’wich, spicy garlic fries, and falafel tacos topped with cilantro garlic sauce, house-pickled jalapenos, and avocado.

4. Sticky Buns and Fritters at Petunia’s Pies and Pastries
Owner/founder Lisa Clark—the surrogate “Petunia” of Petunia’s Pies and Pastries—has created a menu fit for a dozen kings. The bakery is serving more than 20 pastry items at the Portland festival, all vegan and gluten-free. While their Thin Mint Brownies speak to the Girl Scout in us all, we’d recommend going the breakfast route with their pecan sticky buns or their doughnut fritters, which come in two different flavors—apple with maple glaze or lemon blueberry with a lemon glaze.

5. Sunflower Seed Broth Ramen at Ramen Hood
You might have heard of Ramen Hood, the Los Angeles Grand Central Market stall from Top Chef winner Ilan Hall that’s making a new name for vegan ramen. From their creamy, sunflower seed broth and hearty fried oyster mushrooms to fresh-chopped scallions and soy-based “egg” accompaniments, these bowls are perfect for an afternoon of sunny LA beer drinking.

6. Loaded Pretzel Bites at Heidi Ho Organics
From nacho to chèvre, Heidi Ho Organics has an expansive vision when it comes to vegan cheese products. At the Portland festival, they’ll be serving heaping plates of warm pretzel bites layered with gobs of savory chia cheeze and coconut bacon. For all the salt freaks out there (ie, us)—don’t miss your chance to gobble these up, and wash it down with your vegan beer of choice.

7. Pizza for Breakfast at Sizzle Pie
You didn’t think a vegan beer and food festival would transpire without a generous selection of vegan pizzas, did you? Of course not, which means a trip to Sizzle Pie’s booth is mandatory. The PDX pie purveyors will be offering a large selection of pizzas ranging from the Nector Sector (topped with roasted red pepper pepita spread, mandarin oranges, baco bits, tofu cheese, arugula, and Thai sweet chili spirals), the Buffalo 666 (shredded Buffalo jackfruit, Daiya mozzarella cheese, onions, and drizzles of ranch and wing sauce), and the Drugs Benedict (white bean spread, tofu cheese, baco bits, onion, and hash browns). With a pie like that, why not stop by for brunch?

8. Spicy Tuna Roll at Happy Elephant Health Hut
Happy Elephant Vegan in Long Beach is known for its eclectic menu of pan-Asian cuisine, from banana-stuffed breakfast flatbreads to tempura eggplant caviar. The restaurant will be bringing a few refreshing rolls to the table at the Los Angeles festival, but we’re most excited about the Spicy Tuna Roll. Carrot, cucumber, spicy soy tuna salad, and tempura flakes are rolled and topped with bell pepper for a decadent but somehow still light meal that will save room for dessert.

9. Brownie Sundaes at Charlie’s Brownies
Organic brownie company Charlie’s Brownies makes super-moist treats while sponsoring a long list of social organizations, including The Black Aids and Dreamland Foundation. Attendees of both festivals can pick up the company’s signature brownie packs, but Charlie’s will also be offering two ice-cream sundaes to celebrate the festival season. Customers can choose from fresh brownies and blondies—gooey and warmed in the oven—topped with scoops of vanilla ice cream and chocolate or caramel sauces. For toppings, expect crushed almonds, raw cacao nibs, hemp seeds, and coconut bacon. Do we have you drooling yet?

10. Croissant Bread Pudding at The Ridiculous Baking Co. & NadaMoo
Stunning vegan chocolate croissants, cronuts, and gluten-free Italian bread loaves, you say? Impossible. Paired with creamy coconut milk ice cream? Ridiculous. Well, artisanal vegan bakeryThe Ridiculous Baking Co. is teaming with vegan ice cream company NadaMoo to make this dream a reality. We’re preparing ourselves for Donut Cones—doughnuts molded in the shape of an ice cream cone and filled with one of NadaMoo’s select flavors (including chocolate, vanilla, and maple pecan)—and a coconut and pecan-topped, gluten-free German Chocolate Cake à la mode. The team also designed a dessert just for the Los Angeles festival: croissant bread pudding topped with cinnamon, pecans, and ice cream.
