If you eat dairy-free, vegan, or paleo, it’s often hard to find good-tasting products that fit your lifestyle. Everywhere you turn there are advertisements for ice cream, pizza, yogurt, chocolate, lattes – you name it. Our world doesn’t cater to those with food allergies or dietary restrictions. Sadly, there is only so much dairy we can tolerate before crashing and burning.
When I find treats that are dairy-free and good-for-you, I have to let everyone know. I almost want to take out a billboard saying “TRY THIS!” But I usually just settle for handing out samples of my favorite things. Enter Lovebean Fudge.
Lovebean’s Sea Salt Caramel Spread is, in a word, enchanting. It’s made with organic ingredients and is vegan, paleo, low glycemic, and gluten and soy free. The first three (of five) ingredients are coconut-based: organic pureed coconut, organic coconut sugar, and organic fresh-pressed coconut milk. At first bite the coconut flavor was very prominent, but as I kept eating, it morphed into a rich, heavenly mixture of sweet vanilla, creamy butterscotch, and the perfect touch of sea salt. This was even better than any dairy-based caramel I’ve tried. I want to put it on everything!
The spread comes in a jar ($12.99) and box of 10 squeeze packs ($17.99). I would recommend the jar for baking and recipes and the squeeze packs for on-the-go anytime fun. You can also purchase a sampler six pack ($12.00) to try three of the flavors before committing to a full jar. FYI, it’s totally okay to eat it straight from the jar with a spoon – I won’t judge!
Lovebean’s spread is a dream come true for us lactose-free peeps! Melt it, mold it, bake it, spread it, or pour it on top of your favorite dairy-free ice cream. The possibilities are endless.
