"My favorite is the dairy-free So Delicious. It's certified organic, vegan, kosher, and the most luscious treat I know. Its taste and texture not only replicate the feel of [dairy] ice cream but actually become more tasty and satisfying because of the purity of its ingredients. They make many different flavors, but I often buy the Neapolitan." $6 per quart
