Dairy-Free Ice Creams to Sink Your Spoon Into

category:

By Alison Wickmann

Navigating the isles of your local health food store, you may be overwhelmed with the selection of dairy-free ice creams.  We don’t blame you, if you have dabbled in this realm before, you know that some alternatives are less than ideal for the palate.  Lucky for you, we have taken it upon ourselves to taste-test the good, the bad and the ugly to report the best brands to you.

So Delicious Cashew Milk Ice Cream

Dairy-Free Ice Creams

The flavor and creamy consistency will leave you basking in dairy-free heaven.  The base of cashew milk really knocks this treat out of the park.  Choose from Bananas Foster, Snickerdoodle, Salted Caramel Cluster and even Vanilla, if you are trying to keep it simple.

 

Halo Top

Dairy-Free Ice Creams

It makes sense why this ice cream is associated with a halo, the taste is from above.  Not only that, but a pint only has between 280 – 380 calories, making this ideal for those late night indulgences.  Choose from a wide array of flavors ranging from wildly popular Birthday Cake to Peanut Butter and Jelly.  When selecting one of the flavors, be careful, they do have a selection of ice creams that do have dairy, so don’t get it skewed.

 

Ben and Jerry’s

Dairy-Free Ice Creams

Well, of course this one makes the list.  This is a staple for any ice cream lover, as Ben and Jerry’s continues to pave the way for our icy expectations.  They list their nine flavors as euphoric, and we can report that it evokes that exact feeling upon first spoonful.  Our top recommendation?  P.B. & Cookies, it’s alive with flavor and the little bits of crunchy will leave you swooning for more.

 

Hakuna Banana

Dairy-Free Ice Creams

We got to give some credit to this brand.  Hello, banana-based ice cream?  Genius.  They bring the flavor without any added sugars and fillers, which is why this rightfully marketed as (n)ice cream.  Whether you gravitate towards Banana Spice or keep it simple with their Banilla flavor, we can promise you that you won’t be disappointed.
