MAD HEALTHY SCIENTISTS: HOW WE REINVENTED ICE CREAM
When was the last time you indulged, really treated yourself by eating something that was healthy? ….Yeah, we thought so.
The idea of delicious hasn’t quite synched up with what is nutritious. So we eat something like ice cream to treat ourselves, to celebrate, to indulge. We have a deep emotional connection to ice cream. 82% of Americans are eating it, but the majority feel guilty later.
And there’s a good reason for the guilt. Picture this: a pint of the Ben & Jerry’s Half Baked contains 216% of your daily recommended sugar intake and 88% of your daily recommended fat intake. To make matters worse, 40 million Americans are lactose intolerant.
Americans are in an unhealthy relationship with food, and it’s time to revolutionize the way we eat. Snow Monkey is here to reimagine staple favorites as delicious fuel for a healthy life. And we’re starting by reinventing ice cream.
In their university kitchen, between exams, athletics and other college diversions, our co-founders Rachel and Mariana concocted a recipe—that turned into a plan—that developed into a mission—that became Snow Monkey.
Snow Monkey Superfood Ice Treat is made from only seven natural, plant-based ingredients, making it vegan, paleo, non-dairy and free from all eight major allergens like gluten, soy, nuts and lactose. An entire pint of Snow Monkey has 21g of protein, just 400 calories, and it is packed with fiber and antioxidants. Superfood Ice Treat is nutritious and delicious, making it the perfect anytime treat for breakfast, fuel or indulgence.
We believe that food is a choice, and we want you to win every time. What are you waiting for?
