Whether you are lactose intolerant, vegan, or avoid dairy for other reasons, you might have found it tricky in the past to find good, quality, delicious ice cream. But in recent years, more and more companies are hopping on the dairy-free train and, luckily, we’ve been blessed with new dairy-free ice cream flavors! Aldi’s new line of Earth Grown Plant-Based Ice Cream belongs in our freezer as soon as humanly possible. The dairy-free ice creams are available for a limited time at Aldi locations nationwide for $3 per pint, and each flavor is certified vegan, making it the perfect treat for those of us who avoid dairy at all costs. The flavors that are already on shelves have us drooling already: coconut milk Raspberry Cheesecake, Peanut Butter Chocolate, and Mint Chocolate Chip flavors. The brand’s new oat milk Vanilla Cookie Chip, Strawberry, and Cold Brew flavors will be available in stores beginning on Aug. 26. So, yes, I will be drizzling a generous helping of chocolate syrup over a scoop of cold brew and peanut butter chocolate soon.
In other exciting plant-based ice cream news, Tipsy Scoop’s has a new vegan piña colada flavor. New York City-based Tipsy Scoop, a shop famous for its creative take on ice cream, just partnered with Kenny Chesney’s Blue Chair Bay Rum to bring you a limited-edition vegan piña colada ice cream that looks just as refreshing as a chilled summer cocktail. Made with creamy coconut milk, fresh coconut, sweet pineapple, and Blue Chair Bay’s coconut rum, the dairy-free tropical combo is Tipsy Scoop’s first-ever vegan ice cream. What’s even cooler about this ice cream is that while it’s great to eat the old fashion way, you can also blend it into a slushy cocktail for a fun drink! Available at TipsyScoop.com for delivery nationwide, you can ship the boozy deliciousness in packs of three pints directly to your front door for $36. You can also get your hands on the limited-edition flavor at Tipsy Scoop’s so-called “barlours” and select stores where the brand is sold.
