Are you one of the many people who suffers from either a dairy of gluten allergy, or even both? More and more people are finding out that they can no longer have some of their favorite foods due to a new food allergy that they grow into or finally get diagnosed with. I can thank my parents for my lactose intolerance, which I developed in my early twenties. As a result of the tummy troubles I have when drinking milk or eating foods like ice cream, I have had to omit them from my diet. It was so hard to say goodbye to ice cream as this, like many people, is one of my favorite go-to comfort foods. Whether I am having a blah day or simply want to satisfy my sweet tooth, a scoop (or two or three) from the ice cream carton would always do the trick. But, I hated always having to deal with the tummy troubles quickly thereafter.
When I heard about DF Mavens and how they offer a line of gourmet dairy and gluten free frozen treats, I was so excited. While there are other dairy free frozen treats on the market, most lack the taste or flavor you come to expect from frozen ice cream. I was hoping that DF Mavens would fill my ice cream and frozen dessert void, while being gentle on my tummy.
Right before Thanksgiving, I received a wonderful gift at my door -- a cooler filled with DF Mavens dairy free frozen dessert pints to try out. Not only is this gourmet frozen dessert dairy free, it is also gluten-free and soy-free. This original hand-crafted frozen treat won me over with the first spoonful of the Del Lago Chocolate. This deep, dark chocolate frozen dessert was so rich and creamy, that I found myself sneaking off to finish off the pint, without sharing it. Oops! :-)
Made with only the finest cacao in Venezuela's tropical lowlands, DF Mavens Del Lago Chocolate dairy-free frozen dessert will satisfy any chocolate lover's sweet tooth, while not making you feel guilty if you find yourself finishing off a pint yourself in one sitting, as it is made with coconut milk. Who knew that you could enjoy a dairy-free frozen dessert and that it would taste this good?!
Vegans, lactose intolerant and those with Gluten and soy allergies will rejoice when they try a spoonful of one of the many rich, decadent flavors offered by DF Mavens.
The Soy Collection is available in the following flavors:
- New Orleans Salted Praline
- Sicilian Hazelnut Truffle
- Shot of Java
- Peanut Butter Fudge Mash
The Coconut Collection includes:
- Madagascar Vanilla Bean
- Del Lago Chocolate (My personal favorite)

I did end up sharing the remaining pints with my family and friend who had come for Thanksgiving dinner, and everyone had the same reaction as I did -- a huge smile on their faces after the first spoonful. They were in love with the this delicious and healthy frozen dessert, and couldn't wait to go in for another spoonful.
