The 16 Best Non-Dairy Ice Creams To Scoop Into Your Bowl

Ben & Jerry’s made the list, obvi.

When summer rolls around, it's prime time for ice cream (though it's really more of an all-season thing). If you're plant-based, you know the struggle to find a satisfying frozen treat is real. Sure, many brands are churning out non-dairy ice cream, but not every single one nails the creamy texture and flavor of the real thing.

And note that just because these treats are vegan or dairy-free doesn't automatically make them better for you, says Toby Amidor, RD, the author of The Easy 5-Ingredient Healthy Cookbook. Though that hardly matters since we eat ice cream because it tastes amazing and that's totally okay.

We put together a list of the best non-dairy ice cream made with a variety of ingredients (cashew milk, coconut milk, sunflower milk, you name it), so there is definitely one that suits your taste buds and needs. Among our selections, you'll find a superfood ice cream, one made from coconut meat, and even a classic Ben & Jerry's flavor.

Whether you're vegan or just cutting out lactose, these dairy-free ice creams will satisfy your sweet tooth, align with your lifestyle, and won't leave you with a stomachache.
