Vegans and lactose-intolerant lovers of creamy frozen treats rejoice! Ben & Jerry's, yes the Yankee ice cream company, has unlocked the secret to a non-dairy recipe for their kooky flavors.
The "non-dairy frozen dessert," they technically can't call it ice cream, is made with almond milk. The pints will hit store shelves mid-February in the following flavors:
- Chocolate Fudge Brownie: chocolate with fudge brownies from New York's Greyston Bakery
- P.B. & Cookies: vanilla with chocolate sandwich cookies and peanut butter swirls
- Chunky Monkey: banana with fudge chunks and walnuts
- Coffee Caramel Fudge: coffee with fudge chunks and walnuts
All flavors are certified vegan by Vegan Action meaning the ice creams do not include any animal products — no dairy, honey or eggs here. Other ingredients like cocoa, sugar, coffee, bananas and vanilla are all fair trade certified.
As the company says in the promotional video, they spent a long time on the recipes and think they will be worth the wait.
