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.
