Thanks!
I haven't tried the Almond Dream, but I may have to give is a whirl! I love Almond milk, so I'm sure it would be pretty good! I think my favorite ice cream would have to be any of the Purely Decadent! I love coconut anything, so that helps alot! My husband, however, is not as much of a fan

I'll also give you mine. I like the frozen treats from rice dreams, but the ice cream is horrible (in the tubs). Purely Decadent/SO is awesome. The coconut flavors are all good, at least the ones I've tried. Chocolate peanut butter - yummy!! I love the turtle something one which is vanilla with little chocolate covered caramel crunchy bits in it. Choclate in the regular purely decadent ones is not as good as the vanilla (but I do like it in the coconut) I've heard really good things about TEMPT, but I can't seem to find it in the ice cream.

Just realized you saiid you can't have coconut. Try the turtle one by Purely Decadent. SO Good. It's soy based and the easiest for me to find locally without having to go to Whole Foods. I have tried the Almond Dream but now I can't remember why I never bought it again. Maybe I need to try it again. I thought I bought almond praline or maybe I got vanilla but wanted to try almond praline and couldn't find it. I think Almond dream makes a ice cream sandwich that I tried and that I really liked. They were tiny, but a nice treat. The Rice Dream cookie sandwiches in the mocha are great. Not so good in the mint.

Thanks so much guys!! I had the Purely Decadent a couple of weeks ago in Cookie Avalanche (like vanilla with oreo cookies!). It was delicious!

I realized that since I live in Brooklyn, and there are a lot of religious Jewish people near where I live, that there must be a store that sells kosher non-dairy ice cream. Sure enough, there is one ice cream parlor around the corner from where I work, and another one that is closer to my house, and much easier to park! I went to the one closer to my house on my way home from work today and they had tons of things that contain no dairy! I bought these small treats made of non-dairy peanut butter and vanilla ice cream, with a little fudge on top and the bottom is dipped in chocolate. I also bought chocolate/vanilla sundae cups with chocolate fudge on top and whipped topping! They're like the little ice cream cups I buy my kids at the supermarket, but dairy free! They had tons of other stuff, including non-dairy cakes. My birthday is in June and I just may have to tell DH to get my cake there!

Anyway, I had the little peanut butter and vanilla treat and it was delicious! It also has little chocolate cookie bits in it. I am going to be *bad* tonight and try a sundae cup too. In a little while I have physical therapy (I had surgery 6 weeks ago because of a badly herniated disc in my neck), and I will try the sundae cup when I get home.

The only thing is...they have no nutrition label so I don't know how many points they would be counted as on weight watchers. I will check the weight watchers books and just count them the same as regular ice cream. (I'm a Lifetime Member and I still count everything and write it down).

Thanks again for your recommendations. I think that next, I will go back to this place and buy one of their tubs. They sell vanilla, chocolate, and vanilla fudge (the one I will buy!).

I just wanted to drop-in and say THANK YOU for the awesome dining report! I am a vegetarian traveling to Disney World in a week. I'm attempting to tweak some of my reservations now to see if I can enjoy similar things although I know it is quite late to do so. Anyways, thanks so much for sharing with us!
