Coconut Bliss

Now that the sun’s finally shining and our cravings for frozen desserts have escalated, let me introduce you to this member who has taken dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free and certified organic delectables to the level of pure bliss. Did you know…

  1. When they first met, Larry Kaplowitz and Luna Marcus discovered that they not only loved playing together in their kitchen in Eugene, Oregon, but they also shared a passion for natural foods. One of the things they loved was ice cream, but were unhappy with the way it made their bodies feel and were concerned about the ecological impacts of dairy farming.
  2. Larry and Luna tried all the ice creams made from soy and rice, but the taste was disappointing and their bodies still felt bad after eating those too. So, In 2004 Larry and Luna purchased a hand-cranked ice cream machine from Goodwill for $1.50 and decided to try making ice cream with coconut milk and sweetened with agave syrup. After sharing their creation with friends, everyone looked at each other and said, “This isn’t just good, it’s bliss!”
  3. Among their guests at one event were two local shop owners who asked Larry and Luna to make Coconut Bliss for their stores, both landmarks in Eugene: the Sweet Life Patisserie and the Red Barn Natural Grocery. And that’s how Coconut Bliss got started.
  4. The Coconut Bliss line-up of frozen dairy-free, gluten-free and soy-free desserts includes an abundance of flavors of ice cream, various selections of frozen bars and their popular new creation, the Coconut Bliss Sandwich. All products are now available in stores from coast to coast.
  5. Coconut Bliss is one of the coolest places to work in Eugene. Employees are treated to catered lunches by a private chef, prepared with ingredients that are organic, vegan and locally sourced. When employees need to unwind or take a break in their day, they can retreat to the Bliss Lounge. This centrally located room can be used to meditate, practice yoga or just unwind.

Cascade is pleased to feature Coconut Bliss, where hard-working people have fun making healthy and (almost) guilt-free treats.
