(DGIwire) – Whether it’s in a cone, cup, homemade, freshly scooped or delivered by the ice cream man himself, it’s no secret that Americans of all ages love ice cream! In fact, Yahoo News conducted a survey to get the scoop on America’s favorite desserts and no surprise here, ice cream came out with a cherry on top. Allow us at ReviewLoft to introduce you to latest ice cream craze to enter the scene: Green Girl Bakeshop, whose variety of organic ice cream sandwiches would satisfy any ice cream fanatic. These sweet treats are dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, available in mini-size and 100 percent delicious.

Lisa Stoy, the girl behind Green Girl Bakeshop, was inspired to make desserts for the dietary-restricted after being diagnosed with food allergies herself. Considering the National Institute of Health reported approximately 65 percent of the human population has a reduced ability to digest lactose after infancy, Lisa wasn’t alone and dessert lovers were in need of dairy-free options. Lisa, along with the many others living with food allergies, felt discouraged by the lack of health in the ‘vegan’ or ‘gluten-free’ labeled foods available in the store. Her goal was simple: create a dessert using nutrient dense ingredients that also tasted amazing…even to those who are able to digest wheat and dairy.

In order to get the recipe just right, Lisa experimented with different ingredients and the result was an ice cream sandwich comprised a few natural ingredients including coconut milk, coconut oil, maple syrup, brown rice flour and coconut palm sugar. Green Girl Bakeshop looked into each of their suppliers to be able to tell its customers with confidence that their products do not contain any preservatives or artificial ingredients.

The team at ReviewLoft definitely noticed the difference in Green Girl Bakeshop’s ice cream sandwiches, especially in the fresh mint chip flavor. Where other mint chip ice creams can come across more artificial and processed, Green Girl Bakeshop’s actually had notes of fresh mint leaves to perk up the taste buds. The team also enjoyed the unique cardamom flavor….of course there’s chocolate and vanilla bean, too! Not only was the ice cream in the middle refreshing, the cookies that surrounded it were just as delectable. Ice cream sandwiches have a tendency to leave cookie residue on fingertips, but the soft cookies used in Green Girl Bakeshop’s ice cream sandwiches were not sticky and did not leave a trace behind on any fingers. While devouring these ice cream sandwiches, Green Girl Bakeshop’s passion and commitment to nutritious, natural and quality ingredients came through in every scrumptious bite.

Luckily, Green Girl Bakeshop has created a dessert to fill the dairy and gluten-sized hole in people’s diets. Green Girl Bakeshop is based in the San Francisco Bay area and those interested in sampling the ice cream sandwiches can find their products at select stores, place online orders available to ship anywhere in the U.S. or visit a Green Girl Bakeshop stand at local famers markets. Fans of Green Girl Bakeshop can also follow the company’s progress on social media to get a really good taste for what this company is all about. With flavors including fresh mint chip, cardamom, vanilla bean, chocolate, peppermint, strawberry and more, the only way anyone’s diet will feel restricted is when the box of Green Girl Bakeshop’s ice cream sandwiches in the freezer is empty.
