Julie’s Organic Ice Cream started in 1996. Julie, and her husband, wanted to make ice cream that was better for their family, and better for the environment, than what they were currently enjoying. Julie’s products are certified organic. The milk comes from cows that eat a 100% organic diet and who are not given antibiotics (except as a last resort, which would cause the cow to leave the organic herd). Julie’s makes ice cream that comes in Vanilla, Chocolate, Mocha Java, Blackberry, Mint Fudge, Caramel, Cookies and Cream, Toasted Coconut and Pineapple, Cherry Cordial, Pomegranate Cranberry with Vanilla, and Pink Peppermint. They also make frozen yogurt that contains NutraFlora prebiotic fiber and comes in six different flavors. Their Sorbet pints are dairy free, and contain organic fruit. Choose from Mango Passion, Blackberry, Strawberry and Cream or Mandarin and Cream. Julie’s also makes four flavors of dairy free sorbet bars. They make ice cream bars, and ice cream sandwiches. Two flavors of ice cream sandwiches are gluten free: Vanilla Ice Cream with Chocolate Cookies, and Lemon Yogurt with Vanilla Cookies. Those who are lactose intolerant can try Julie’s non-dairy pints of ice cream or non-dairy novelties. They are made with coconut milk and coconut cream. You cannot buy Julie’s Organic Ice Cream from their website. The price of it might vary depending on where you purchase it from.
Foods that are organic were grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, or ionizing radiation. Organic foods are GMO free. Foods that are gluten free do not contain wheat or other ingredients that include gluten. This makes them safe for people who have celiac disease, or a gluten allergy or intolerance, to eat. Foods that are dairy free do not contain milk or milk products. This might make them safer for people who need to be on a lactose free diet to consume. NutraFlora is a prebiotic fiber that provides soluble fiber that helps with digestion. It also helps the body to absorb calcium (which helps make strong bones). Julie’s is part of the Oregon Ice Cream Company, LLC., which has its headquarters in Vancouver, Washington. If you like Julie’s, you might want to try Alden’s Ice Cream. Alden is Julie’s son.
