Vacation + Chocolate Ice Cream = A Big Win

Dairy free ice cream is something that was first eaten in the early 1940’s.  Many families with allergies have eaten the ice cold dessert as a way to not miss out on the fun of this sweet treat.  I have tried many flavors of many different brands of ice cream, but the one I am going to tell you about today is Trader Joe’s dairy free chocolate ice cream.

This particular ice cream is made with coconut milk, and Trader Joe’s also has strawberry flavor.  This one was also similar to other brands of ice cream I have had, except that this one was smoother.  My mom ended up buying this ice cream for our trip to Arroyo Grande (several miles south of San Luis Obispo). It was the holiday weekend of President’s Day (our school gives the whole week off).  We were meeting my aunt, uncle, and cousin up there in a vacation house along with my grandpa, grandma, and all of our dogs. There were four dogs! That is a lot.

On our fourth night there, we picked up some ice cream while we watched the movie MATILDA.  We were going to watch The Princess Bride, but we snuck it into the car to watch earlier while we drove to the horse farm (it was 45 minutes away – quiet – don’t tell my mom!)  We ate our ice cream during the movie with a chocolate cupcake.


The ice cream was really good.  As the spoon touched my taste buds at the end of my tongue, I felt exploding sweetness spread throughout into my brain.  As I swallowed the melted chocolate bite, I smiled, happy for the yummy treat.  No doubt you should try this as well as me.  It was amazing.  So this is Max, signing off…see you next time!
