Ice cream doesn't have to be dairy to be delicious. Taking milk off the ingredient list and substituting it with delicious alternatives like coconut, almond, soy, rice, or cashew milk creates vegan-friendly frozen desserts. Here are six dairy-free ice cream brands waiting to be selected from the frozen food section at Food Lion.
1. Halo Top
Halo Top's coconut milk ice creams are free of dairy, soy, and sugar, and are vegan-friendly and all organic. Enjoy tasty combinations like chocolate-covered banana, pancakes and waffles, birthday cake, and peanut butter cup. Halo Top flavors include almost 15 dairy-free varieties to choose from.
2. So Delicious
This brand's dairy-free vegan ice creams are made with cashew milk, coconut milk, or soy milk. The coconut milk flavors are particularly creamy and smooth, like their dairy counterparts, according to Karissa Bowers of Organic Authority. All of the So Delicious products are vegan-friendly, including over 30 ice cream flavors, ice cream bars, and ice cream sandwiches.
3. Ben & Jerry's Non-Dairy Frozen Desserts
This global giant's non-dairy pints are made with almond milk and are certified vegan friendly. Enjoy flavors like Peanut Butter Half Baked, packed with fudge brownies and peanut butter cookie dough, or Coconut Seven Layer Bar, with walnuts, chunks of fudge, graham cracker, and caramel. As Ben & Jerry's says, its nine dairy-free flavors "deliver everything…but the cow."
4. Häagen-Dazs Non-Dairy Ice Cream
Häagen-Dazs's approach to going non-dairy is to focus on starting with a core ingredient, like real peanut butter or Belgian chocolate, instead of merely finding a substitute for the milk. This way, the texture stays creamy and the flavors are rich. Its four vegan ice creams are coconut caramel, peanut butter chocolate fudge, chocolate salted fudge truffle, and mocha chocolate cookie.
Find Tofutti frozen desserts in pints, cones, ice cream sandwiches, and novelties. All of its ice creams are dairy-free, vegan-friendly, and kosher parve, and contain no cholesterol or GMO. Try Wild Berry Supreme, vanilla fudge, or Better Pecan.
6. Dream Frozen Desserts
The four varieties of Dream's dairy-free ice creams are Almond Dream, Rice Dream, Soy Dream, and Coconut Dream. Within these varieties are several flavors to choose from, such as mint carob chip, French vanilla, praline crunch, and chocolate. Enjoy Dream plant-based frozen desserts in pints and quarts, sandwiches, bars, pies, and bites.
