Turtle Mountain Product Review (SO Delicious Dairy-Free Products)

From An Opera Singer in the Kitchen

I recently received a packet of information about this lovely product. Even though I enjoy almond milk and soy milk, I use them for specific uses. I use soy milk mainly for cooking and almond milk for eating.


I used to drink rice milk but it was hard getting used to, so when I found out about this product I jumped at it. Turtle Mountain sent me some coupons to try some of their products, so I decided to try the following:

  • Coconut Milk Kefir
  • Coconut Milk Creamer (French Vanilla flavor)
  • Unsweetened Coconut Milk (fewer calories than the sweetened)
  • Decadent Chocolate Dairy-Free Ice Cream (Soy-Milk based)
  • Passionate Mango Coconut Yogurt
  • Passionate Mango Ice Cream

A lot of products, eh? Yes, I decided to stick up the fridge with these goodies to get the whole experience. THESE coconut products are FANTABULOUS!!! Let me tell you how I have been using them or enjoying them.


I have been using the Unsweetened Coconut Milk to make the Green Monster, since it has fewer calories and a lower sugar content. It makes for a creamy smoothie and so flavorful. I also used them in my recent recipe for the Chocolate Banana Cupcakes with Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosting. Yes, even though there are recipes using soy milk, almond milk, or rice milk, SO Delicious Coconut Milk comes in handy too! Especially when you want to make something tropical. Yum!


What about creamer? Before going vegan, I resorted to the chemical-ladened Coffee-Mate creamers that helped me gain weight. Yes, I believe that these were an additional culprit, but after going vegan, trying to find a good creamer was hard. The soy creamer really upset my stomach and I was disappointed I was going to have to JUST use almond milk. No probs, but when a company comes out with a yummy product I was super happy to buy the Coconut Milk Creamer in the French Vanilla flavor. It takes 1 Tbsp to be added to your coffee for only 20 calories! Wow, guys, this is so good and creamy. No…it does not taste coconutty, but a little creamy, as are coconuts.


How about ice cream? My hubby and I used to enjoy this often, which he still does now but more in moderation. I, on the other hand, have held off even with the dairy-free options, especially since there are somewhat expensive. I could also make it, but hey I have a day job and do not have time to be in the kitchen all the time! I tried the Decadent Chocolate Dairy-Free Ice Cream (Soy-Milk based) that was very creamy and decadent, as the name indicates. I even had Ryan taste it and he liked it too! It only takes 1/2 cup serving for a little over 100 calories. What a treat, but you know what did it for me??

Coconut Milk Ice Cream in the Passionate Mango flavor!!

This is by the far the best stuff I have tasted. The flavor took me to a lovely memory of delicious gelato I had in Italy several years back. Yes, gelato. Even though I have not tried any of the other pints in other flavors, I am sorry I have to say I would like to just stick to this flavor. It was TASTY!! Go try it!!


This flavor is also available in the yogurt. I obviously did not have enough of the flavor. SO creamy and delicious and not so bad on the calorie count.

Please go out and try these wonderful products! It is a great option , especially if you cannot tolerate SOY. It is a lovely option to have alongside the other dairy-free products!


Thanks Tree Mountain for such a great opportunity to try these wonderful products! :)


UPDATE!! I tried the Coconut Milk Ice Cream Mini Bars and the Hazelnut Creamer. So delicious!!!

    OMG I’m obsesssssssed with this brand.

    I’m so glad you are, too! :-)

    I just have to turn the husband-elect onto it. Perhaps I won’t tell him it’s dairy-free! He’d never know the difference!

    I haven’t tried any of these products but I’ve been wanting to try out the ice cream for some time.

    I agree! Purely Decadent coconut milk ice cream is just as creamy as gelato. I love the French Vanilla coconut milk creamer, too. It’s wonderful in chai tea.

    I’m quite taken with these products. You must try the coconut milk-based ice creams and ice cream sandwiches. But I’m warning you–they’re addictive. I used the coconut milk constantly (I stock up when it’s on sale), and am a real sucker for the hazelnut flavored creamer, though the French vanilla is on point as well. Great product line they’ve got going!
