No scream ice cream

No one should be left out when it comes to everyone's favourite summer treat.

    I love ice cream. Regular readers will be aware of this.  

    But sometimes — after a meaty feast, maybe, or if, as is increasingly the case, you cannot or will not eat milk — you need to ditch the dairy.

    Sure, there's always a sorbet - nothing wrong with a fruity or even a chocolate water ice - but the problem is just that. It's water-based and you don't get that satisfying feeling that ice cream gives as it melts on your tongue. 

    So, the exciting news for those in search of a cooling parev pud is that the choice of vegan ice creams is getting a whole lot wider. Not one but two premium US ice cream brands are bringing their two vegan versions this side of the pond. Watch out for Ben and Jerry's and Haagen Daz's non-dairy desserts coming to a supermarket near you. 

    Ben and Jerry's have today announced on their website that they are working on getting vegan here with a range of flavours based on almond milk. 

    Haagen Daz recently launched their non-dairy range in Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge, Coconut Caramel, Chocolate Salted Fudge Truffle, and Mocha Chocolate Cookie flavours. No news on when that will hit our shores.  

    We do already have a few of our own delicious non-dairy delights. My personal favourites include the Booja Booja range (made from cashew milk) and when we taste tested the various kosher, dairy-free ices, a surprise winner was good old Swedish Glace. (Get the full gen on our favourite flavours here.)

    For a quick cheat parev, iced dessert, stir crushed up sesame snaps and crumbled halva into softened vanilla Swedish Glace.Everyone adores it and it's done in minutes.
