I was going to start this post with “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream” & “I’ve never been an ice cream person…” but I realized that I have two other ice cream posts (here and here) and I started both of those posts with the preceding phrases. At least I’m consistent in my thoughts… 🙂
With this post I am comparing some of the non-dairy ice cream brands that I have tried.
This brand is one of my favorites. I much prefer the coconut or almond milk over the cashew milk ice creams, but that is only due to the cashew milk ice creams are much softer – more like soft serve than the coconut or almond milk based ice creams. My favorite flavors are Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Mint Chip, Cookies & Cream & anything with caramel and/or coffee! They also offer ice cream sandwiches and ice cream bars – all of the above makes it into my shopping cart regularly! The ice cream sandwiches don’t last very long – I love them & usually eat them first.
Ben & Jerry’s
Yes, B&J’s now offers a line of dairy free ice cream – if you’ve been keeping up with my Facebook page (here) or Instagram (here), you’ve most likely seen my posts on these. So far, I’ve only had the pleasure of trying two flavors – Chunky Monkey (I’m bananas for this one…) & Coffee Caramel Fudge. I only had one problem with this brand….I ran out too soon, especially the Coffee Caramel Fudge! These were so delicious. Keep watch on Facebook & Instagram to see what other flavors I try next!
With this brand comes a warning – not all their flavors are dairy free. Actually most are not – just the sorbettos – the only flavor I’ve tried is Roman Raspberry (Oh, my YUM!), other flavors they have that I want to try are Mango & Blood Orange.
This was the first dairy-free ice cream I found & tried…it kept me feeling “normal” during the first few months of my transition to dairy-free. I usually had the vanilla or cappuccino swirl. They have other flavors – mint chip, salted caramel (I’m drooling), butter pecan, vanilla fudge swirl, praline crunch & strawberry. There are probably more, but these are the ones I want to find! This brand also has ice cream sandwiches too, but I’ve not tried them yet.
So many brands & so many flavors to try, so little time!
