The Lemon Goat

In the continuing adventure to get ice cream for the 100% lactose-intolerant Hubby, the Hubby, JG, and I headed over to Central Market yesterday morning, for certainly we’d find better selections there.

 Surprisingly, we didn’t find *any* lactose-free dairy ice cream.  But plenty of soy milk and goat milk ice cream.  So JG picked out NadaMoo Ga Da Do Chocolote, while I picked out LaLoo’s Lemon Meyer Goat Ice Cream.  Back at JG’s place, we had a taste test.

It would’ve been good to find any of LaLoo’s chocolate flavors to have an equal taste-testing, but the Central Market we went to only had the fig and lemon flavors in stock.  As it turns out, the Lemon Meyer flavor has goat cheese (chevre) as well as goat milk in it, which contributed to that “I just licked a goat” aftertaste that the Hubby and I got ten to fifteen minutes after eating the ice cream.  While eating it, though, it was pretty yummy and the texture was great — very creamy.  (As for JG, who never had goat milk, all she picked up was the lemon flavor, so it tasted just fine to her).  But for the Hubby and me, that aftertaste, in which everything kinda tasted and smelled like chevre… well, let’s just say we’ll go for the non-chevre flavors (like Deep Chocolate) next time.

But the NadaMoo was a definite hit for all three of us taste-testers.  The first ingredient is coconut milk, while the next one is soy milk.  Since the flavor was chocolate, then the overall taste and texture was like eating German chocolate cake-flavored low-fat ice cream.  Yummy!

So, the NadaMoo — yup, that’ll be a part of the Hubby’s ice cream repertoire.  As for LaLoo’s Lemon Meyer?  We refer to it as “the lemon goat” — we’ll finish it (as not to waste food) but won’t buy it again.

    NadaMoo! is going soy-free! Except for the chocolate chips in the Lotta Mint Chip, the ice cream is soy-free.

    Hello, Amy!

    You’re very much welcome! And that’s great to hear about the soy being lessened. 🙂

    As the Hubby is 100% lactose-intolerant and also a major chocolate-lover, your Gotta Do was just *perfect*.

    Cheers,
    Lizardqueen

    Hi,

    Thanks for the nice review. I love our Gotta Do Chocolate. It took some work to find an organic cocoa that tastes so good, but it was worth it.

    NadaMoo! is lactose-free. I originally made the recipe for my sister, who has lots of food sensitivities, dairy being high on the list. Since starting the company in 2005, I’ve had constant requests to take out the soy. Turns out my own mother can’t do soy! So, although what you got was in old packaging (small & responsible company…wanted to use up rather than throw away), the basic recipe has been .5% soy since late 2006.

    As the new packaging rolls out this month, you’ll see the change in the ingredient list (though now I see we should also say, “lactose-free”). And you’ll see two new flavors: Maple Pecan and Coconut.

    Thanks again for spreading the word about NadaMoo!. It comes right from my heart and I’m so pleased to find that other people love it as much as I do.

    All the Best,

    Amy
