Dairy and soy free ice cream

The best dairy and soy free ice cream brands!

We have selflessly eaten extensive amounts of dairy and soy free ice cream to bring you this roundup of the best brands! Well, someone had to do it… 

Top for taste

It’s really a matter of personal choice as to when you give your little one their first taste of ice cream – and until then these are for you to enjoy! The focus here is purely on flavour; none of these options are low in sugar. If you want something that is, I suggest trying out this sugar free raspberry ‘nice cream’ recipe first.

Luckily choice and quality have come a long way over the last few years. More and more brands are removing soy and switching to other bases such as coconut and oat instead. So, there is more to choose from 👍.

Unfortunately vegan ice creams do tend to be on the more expensive side. I have noticed that they are often included in promotions though, so keep an eye out for any good deals and stock up.

Dairy & soy free ice cream toppings

If you want to really go for it, may I suggest some (or all) of these delicious toppings. These are all top 14 allergen free:

Make your own dairy free ice cream

If you want  a healthier option to share with your little one, I suggest trying ‘nice cream’. It is made using frozen banana slices as a base, and then you can add whatever flavours you like. The consistency is soft serve, really creamy and delicious. It’s so easy to make, all you need is a good food processor! 

I have got a recipe for raspberry nice cream – but do play around with flavours following the same process. I like to add some cacao powder, a spoonful of nut butter and a drizzle of maple syrup. Delicious!
