This year has seen some awesome additions when it comes to cow-approved ice cream treats; lots of companies are catching on to the demand for delicious almond, coconut, cashew, and other non-dairy options. You can have your vegan ice cream and eat it, too!
Since summer is ice cream season, now’s the perfect time to share some of our new dairy-free dessert picks. Here are four faves:
Ben & Jerry’s P.B. & Cookies
With a base of vanilla almond milk ice cream, this flavor is packed with chocolate sandwich cookies and crunchy peanut butter swirls. The end result is ice cream perfection: thick, rich, dairy-free deliciousness. B&J’s offers three other super-delicious vegan options, too, dincluding Chunky Monkey, Coffee Caramel Fudge, and Chocolate Fudge Brownie. Make-your-own-sundae party, anyone?
So Delicious Chocolate Cookies ‘n Cream
So Delicious makes a lengthy list of delightful dairy-free desserts, from holiday pops to coconut whipped topping to their newest treat: cashew milk ice cream. The Chocolate Cookies ‘n Cream flavor is one of the newest, and it’s a rich, decadent, whirlwind of chocolate bliss. There are seven other popular flavors, too (Salted Caramel Cluster FTW!). Feed this to your pals and they will never miss the dairy!
Steve’s Speculoos Cookie Butter
If you love cookies and ice cream (ummm, who doesn’t?), cookie butter ice cream is basically the best thing ever. A combination of speculoos (a rich, creamy treat made from ground-up gingerbread-style cookies) and non-dairy ice cream, this frozen treat is a mouthwatering option. This particular flavor, made by Steve’s, won a national food award, so you know it’s impressive ice cream.
Amy’s Kitchen Mint Chocolate Chip
Nothing says summertime tradition like a little mint chocolate chip, and Amy’s Kitchen offers a smooth, creamy, and a perfectly chilly snack for a sweltering summer afternoon. The folks at Amy’s snagged their ice cream recipe from superstar vegan chef Jason Sellers of Plant, a famous vegan eatery in Asheville, NC. And trust us, it’s GOOD.
