Wink Frozen Desserts and Milkshake Recipe

L-R: Strawberry Cheesecake, Cake Batter, Mint Chocolate Chip, Strawberry, Cookies and Cream

Reformulated and creamier than ever, Wink Frozen Desserts are ready to hit even more stores, and it’s so good you’ll feel naughty. A little naughty. A little.

You’ll get over that quickly enough.

Wink’s Frozen Desserts rely on delicious, fresh, real taste for all the dessert decadence you deserve.

Not only that,  they’re non-GMOgluten-free, dairy-freeegg-freesoy-freevegan-friendly, and are conscious of the environment.

Sweetened with stevia, you’ll never miss the headaches you experienced with standard ice creams–And each serving is only 1 net carb, 0 grams of fat, and only 25-30 calories per serving!

With so much missing from every cute little pint container (complete with the happy mascot on the label. Seriously, I keep one of their stickers on the wall of my office), how might this be something that even remotely interests you? Want to check out their ingredients? Simply click each product for their comprehensive (short) list: Wink Ingredients 

Basically, you’re looking at: INGREDIENTS: FILTERED WATER, VEGETABLE GLYCERINE, PEA PROTEIN*, NATURAL FLAVOR**, TAPIOCA FLOUR, REB A (STEVIA), BAKING SODA,XANTHAN GUM, GUAR GUM, BEET JUICE (COLOR).

*Contains a trivial amount of fat
**May contain a trivial amount of sugar
Each flavor-packed pint of Wink has a load of fresh, real taste. The pea protein they use adds some terrific heft, and the lack of preternatural colors makes for a dessert you feel good about serving your kids. And since they have reformulated their dessert, it’s creamier than ever, making this the truest mouth-feel for non-dairy ice cream I’ve had to date.

 

I’ve even includes a dairy-free Winkshake recipe below!

A dessert so filled with winning, there’s not room for anything else.

Strawberry Cheesecake  ♥♥♥♥♥
My favorite of all of fabulous flavors, this creamy, dreamy delight actually tastes as close as you can get to strawberry cheesecake without the fork. The only thing that’s missing: Anything you’re probably allergic to.  My daughter (co-taste-tester) also loved this one, so we sat in bliss together sampling this decadent foray into all that is delightfully dairy and just a little fruity. Want to add a bit of fun? Turn this into a small Winkshake and top with almond crumbs or a slice of strawberry.

Cake Batter  ♥♥♥♥♥
Probably our least favorite of the flavors we tested (which isn’t saying much, since we’d eat every one again without thinking twice about it), this subtle flavor smells just like cake batter on the spoon, with a flavor reminiscent of vanilla cake batter. The slightly pink color makes it feel more Birthday Cake special, too. A pleasant, rich vanilla flavor with a darker color, think of the most amazing fragrant candle you own that you spent a little bit more for. It’s like that, but with dessert. Add some sprinkles and a candle and it’s time to celebrate!

Mint Chocolate Chip  ♥♥♥♥♥
This frozen dessert is out of this world (not in an oxygen-depleting way). With plenty of delicate mint flavoring and none of the crazy green coloring of the commercially manufactured frozen desserts, here, all you get is creamy, minty goodness on your spoon. Without the chunks, it’s more like a mint sherbet. Their new formula is even more creamy like your standard mint chocolate chip. Need a little chocolate chew? Mix-in your favorite high-octane chocolate (85% or higher).

Strawberry  ♥♥♥♥♥
Our other massive favorite is the delicately colored strawberry. It looks the part, tastes the part, and is supremely perfection. So much so that you won’t even realize there’s no dairy in this product. You can think of it as the creamiest sherbet you’ve ever lavished on your tongue, or do as I do and squeal, “Yummy!” Hey, it’s my house, my spoon, my shrieking about its creaminess. You can mix-in some frozen, thawed, mashed strawberries to marble with even more color.

Cookies and Cream  ♥♥♥♥
Chocolaty,  with just a hint of earthy deep cocoa, the mild taste of the Cookies and Cream will have you thinking of your favorite chocolate, nondescript, gourmet frozen dessert. In fact, I was sure it was a Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough I had sampled in the past. Is that a bad thing? Not necessarily. Where you need more mocha-earthy goodness and less, “Hi, I’m chocolate, want a snuggle?” you can dance all night with this flavor and never miss a beat. Just mind your shoes as it melts your heart.

Final thoughts: A little of these flavors go a long way, so while the $5.95/pint price tag might make you weepy, you get a lot of organic bang for your buck. Also consider that this is a smaller business, they ship quickly, and your product arrives in terrific condition. Customer service is perfection and you’re 100% guaranteed to love their products, or they’ll work with you to make it right. Did I mention that their website is freaking adorable?

When you’re dealing with allergies and sugar-free, it’s hard to find one product that can help everyoneWink really knocks it out of the park with these intensely flavored creamy dairy-free desserts. I know I love the stuff–and there’s so much to love.

  1. Looks too good to be true…ah, but it is! What a marvel!
    Enjoy!

    Regards,
    Glad

    • It is so amazing. Seriously! What would make it better is distribution throughout the US and Canada. Here is a flier to present to stores asking they carry the product: http://www.winkfrozendesserts.com/#!store handout/c2j2

      • What a darling you are! I am sure a product of this quality will expand it’s availability to all North America! MD’s here actively now promote eating low carb as the most healthy and the cure to diabetes! It is only a matter of time that Wink reaches Canada!

        Last night I enjoyed your Miracle Cheescake in a Minute…I added ten frozen blueberries to the hot baked product by just poking them into the top of the cake!
        They defrosted beautifully! And they were delicious added to your creamy cake!

        Yum! This is the best diet in the world!

        Regards,
        Glad
