Ghost Vegan Coconut Ice Cream Finishes Summer Strong

The summer is ticking down and we at PricePlow have had coconut on our mind. Why so? Back in June 2019, Ghost introduced a refreshingly creamy limited-edition Coconut Ice Cream Ghost Whey flavor. Customers couldn’t get enough. So Ghost brought it back for a limited time just before Mother’s Day the next year.

Coconut Ice Cream is back, and this time Ghost is bringing it to Vegan alongside its annual Whey release!

Now, in 2021, as the calendar is quickly inching toward autumn, we wondered if Ghost was skipping a year, or had even retired the Coconut Ice Cream flavor. So you can imagine our relief when we heard that not only would Coconut Ice Cream be back on shelves, but it’s also available for the first time in Ghost Vegan Protein and Ghost Whey! We’ll take two, please!

Ghost Coconut Ice Cream Proteins are upon us, and this time we have a Vegan option too!

For those who stick to a fully-plant based vegan or vegetarian diet, then a supplement like Ghost Vegan Protein should be a part of your daily regimen. Alternatively, if you just want a protein bump that ditches the milk, it’s a great supplement to try. And if you’re fine with dairy, then Ghost Whey will always be there for you as well.

With the release of Coconut Ice Cream, Ghost makes it even easier to incorporate more protein into your diet.

Below, we discuss mostly the new vegan protein. However, you can see our Ghost Whey Coconut Ice Cream article to look at those details, which have received their annual update.

Ghost Vegan Protein History

Ghost Dan Lourenco With Ghost Chocolate Cereal Milk Vegan Protein

Ghost Vegan has become a major part of the Ghost story

Prior to 2018, Ghost’s protein supplement (Ghost Whey) was dairy-based. These products were popular, of course, but the brand caught wind of a gaping hole in the supplement industry and they jumped in to fill it. The company launched the first Ghost Vegan Protein with Peanut Butter Cereal Milk, followed by Pancake Batter and Banana Pancake Batter.

Their trick however, is that they weren’t afraid of sucralose — a vegan ingredient — making the flavor far better than the stevia-based competition. Their gamble worked, and a few other companies have followed suit. In one year Ghost Vegan Protein went from new-kid-on-the-block to one of our favorite protein supplements. Check out PricePlow’s Top 5 Plant-Based Proteins.

Admittedly, it was a bit of a controversial pick due to its sucralose content (making it vegan but not entirely plant-based). But consumers didn’t have a problem with it and neither did we. The sweet and creamy flavor formulations Ghost was delivering every few months kept us all on our toes — and it continues to this day.

The Ghost Vegan Coconut Ice Cream Ingredients and Nutrition Facts

A single rounded scoop (33 grams) of Ghost Vegan Protein contains:

  • 120 Calories

  • 20g Protein

  • 2g Fat

  • 5g Carbs (1g of of which is fiber)

Vegan Coconut Ice Cream Ingredients

Ghost combines three different sources of high-quality protein in their Vegan Protein supplement. This is the best way to produce a complete amino acid profile like you can find in whey protein, since the amino acid content is higher in some plants and lacking in others.

Here are the three protein sources:

  • Pea Protein Concentrate 80% – 15g (12g protein)

  • Organic Pumpkin Protein 70% – 7.86g (5.5g protein)

  • Watermelon Seed Protein 75% – 3.33g (2.5g protein)

In addition, the added sources keep it smoother than pea-only or pea/rice vegan proteins. Combined, these sources deliver 20 grams of complete protein per serving.

Other Ingredients

Ordinary vegan protein supplements are known for being bland or even on a bit acidic, but not Coconut Ice Cream. Ghost successfully formulated a creamy and sweet protein supplement by including a few extra ingredients. And the great news is that they don’t alter the macros. To nail down the authentic coconut ice cream character, Ghost uses natural and artificial flavors, plus sugar-free sucralose, xanthan gum, and Ace K. Sunflower creamer gives it a full-bodied creamy texture and salt rounds out the overall flavor palette.

    Ghost Keeps the Flavors Coming

    Flashback to our original Ghost Vegan article, where Ghost pioneered using vegan (but not “plant-based”) sweeteners to make it taste better than the competition!

    Vegan supplements have been around for a few years, and demand has been massive. Increasing numbers of consumers have been adopting vegan and vegetarian diets for a variety of reasons. Aside from ethical concerns, a key factor driving market growth of plant-based supplements is the prevalence of metabolic dysfunction. It turns out that ingredients in protein supplements are essential in controlling and managing some of these issues. Plant-based proteins can be highly effective in boosting stabilizing blood sugar levels.

    Ghost may not discuss these things, but ultimately, that’s why many of us are here. No matter what your diet is, leveraging high amounts of protein is incredibly important.

    Finally, some customers of Ghost Vegan simply like it because they’re just dairy-free – and most protein powders include some form of dairy. If that’s you, then give it a shot — the sucralose will keep this one close to home, but shouldn’t give you GI upset like dairy sometimes does.

    Enjoy the rest of your summer, and enjoy it with coconut!
