As you know by now, I am all about eating a nourishing well-balanced diet which, of course, allows for an occasional sweet treat too!
You may also know that I have strong roots in Boston, Massachusetts. I was born in Boston, attended college in Boston, and even spent my dietetic internship in Boston at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital. So, it might not surprise you that I am very excited to introduce to you two Boston-based woman entrepreneurs!
Katy Flannery (lactose intolerant) and Gwen Burlingame (not lactose intolerant) wanted a real ice cream that they could enjoy together with no compromises. Their mission is to BECKON everyone back to real ice cream and spread the joy it brings to more people!
This is a sponsored post by Beckon Ice cream but the thoughts and opinions in this post are my own.
Other ice cream alternatives just weren’t cutting it on taste and simple ingredients, so they created a premium ice cream made with back to basic ingredients and no lactose!
Say hello to Beckon’s 7 flavor lactose free line up!
How does Beckon ice cream fit for those following a low FODMAP diet? For starters, all of Beckon ice cream flavors are lactose free! The Sea Salt and Chocolate Chip, Mint Chip, Vanilla, Chocolate and espresso are made with low FODMAP ingredients and appear suitable for those following a low FODMAP elimination diet per serving.
The latest flavors: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Cookies and Sweet Cream do contain small amounts of wheat. And although they may not be a fit for the elimination phase of the low FODMAP diet, I personally tolerated both of these lactose free ice cream flavors. The Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough was amazing; one of the best versions I have ever tried. YUM!
Beckon’s ice cream is available in Whole Foods Market nationwide, Sprouts (with a new quart size!) and other select retailers around the country, as well as on beckonicecream.com!
And while shopping is a bit more challenging in the stores these days, you can have Beckon ice cream shipped directly to your house! Want a 10% online discount? Shop on beckonicecream.com and simply use: KATE10 for online orders!
