The warmer weather is slowly creeping back in Perth. Once summer really hits, a lot of us will be turning to icecreams to cool down and enjoy. Now, dairy-free frozen desserts is where veganism really shines in regards to food. I have tried out various different products and have to say that, yes, they really do vary in quality, texture and taste.

My newest discovery is the Australian company CocoLuscious. Oh yeah..this stuff is IT! It is creamy and made from coconut milk and is sweetened with agave nectar. It is vegan, with no dairy and eggs. There are also no artificial additives, colours or preservatives. Oh, and their icecreams are gluten free. (You would be surprised where gluten pops up.)  And before you freak out about the coconut milk aspect, coconut fat is cholesterol free and is considered a 'good fat'. Don't believe me? Look it up! (A great book about vegan nutrition is Becoming Vegan.)

The flavours range from what you might expect - chocolate and vanilla  - to the more exotic like Chai and Mexican Chocolate. I like the Raspberry and am next going to try the Blueberry and also the Peppermint Choc Chip. YUM!

Where to find in Perth: both the Tuart Hill and Perth PAWS store have them in stock. That is where I get mine from. But the are other stockists in Perth. Look here for details.


  1. Be careful when selecting the flavour.

    The staight 'coconut' flavour - delicious

    Choclate flavour in the 'xmas' tub - really horrible and sour, pretty much inedbile.

    'Vanilla' flavour in the 'xmas' tub - not what I expected, more like xmas pudding flavour, but again sour, and not nice.

    I have also tried:
    chocolate chip - good
    raspberry - ok

  2. I haven't seen the xmas tubs in the shops yet. That's a pity about them. The ingredients sound good in theory. I have seen the 'gold' range though. Not tried yet.
    I think so far, Blueberry is my fave.
