Non-Dairy Ice Cream That Doesn’t Actually Suck

Thrilist Heading


According to modern scientists, most human adults aren’t supposed to drink milk, because of the genome which produces lactase — something about enzymes and being old and not being able to digest it and other buzzkills. That especially sucks, because ice cream is kind of the best.

So let’s say you want some ice cream but can’t have dairy. You probably saw that Ben & Jerry’s recently released four new non-dairy flavors, but B&J’s isn’t the only non-dairy frozen dessert in town. Between the major national grocery chains, roughly 10 companies combine to sell a whopping 60 flavors. Unfortunately, most of the flavors taste like they came out the wrong end of a cow.

But not all of them. In the interest of helping our dairy-free friends, we’ve cracked open the best pints to fill you in on the non-dairy ice cream that still actually tastes like ice cream. With most of them, we couldn’t even tell that we weren’t eating the real thing.
