For every animal option there is a plant-based option which most of the time is healthier for you and tastes just as good. Plus the carbon footprint is much less than that of dairy ice-cream!

Studies show going dairy-free could actually benefit your health in quite a few ways; it helps decrease the occurance of ear infection, acne, digestive problems - which makes it perfect for sensitive stomachs, prevents milk allergies and reactions.The isoflavones in soy based ice-creams have been shown to assist in the lowering of bad blood cholesterol and according to research - they can also help in fighting cancer, specifically breast and prostate.

When making vegan ice-cream there are so many non-dairy options, here are a few:
Almond milk
Brazil nut milk
Rice milk
Cashew milk
Coconut milk

Try our Vegan roasted banana ice cream! So healthy and so satisfying!
