Vegan Shopping Basket – The Best Vegan Ice Cream

by Laura Barns

6min read

Suns out, vegan ice creams out. Ok, that sounded better in our heads. But one thing we’ll definitely get cool points for (sorry) is this life-changing roundup. 

Swedish Glace Smooth Vanilla

There's a reason vanilla is THE original (and the best, don't @ me). And this is the vegan original original. Available in most supermarkets now, it's the perfect addition to your weekly shop when you're craving a treat.

Best for: classic ice cream-lovers

Average price: £2.50

Availability: 4/5 

Taste: 4/5 

Overall rating: 4/5

Ben & Jerry's Dairy-Free Peanut Butter & Cookies Ice Cream 

Ben and Jerry = name a more iconic duo. After all, is there anything they can’t do?! This latest addition to their vegan offering is our favourite but it’s harder to get hold of than a perfectly-ripe avo. 

Best for: pure, unadulterated vegan indulgence

Average price: £4.50

Availability: 1/5

Taste: 4/5

Overall rating: 3/5 

Booja Booja Raspberry Ripple 

It seems only right that the creators of some of favourite vegan chocolates have made an insanely tasty (and slightly healthier) ice cream range.

Best for: curbing a fruity, refined sugar-free craving

Average price: £1.99

Availability: 2/5

Taste: 5/5

Overall rating: 4/5 

Magnum Almond Ice Cream 

In years to come, we’ll be discussing where we were when these bad boys first launched. We’ve probably had one a day since, and we can't WAIT for the range to get bigger.

Best for: fans of chocolate lollies

Average price: £3.50

Availability: 5/5

Taste: 5/5

Overall rating: 5/5

Gluten-Free Vegan Cornetto 

Think those avoiding gluten need to miss out on a vegan version of a childhood classic? Think again. Though they do contain nuts and soy, so are not 100% allergy-safe. 

Best for: gluten-free vegans

Average price: £2.00

Accessibility: 3/5 

Taste: 3/5

Overall rating: 3/5

Morrisons Free From Strawberry Ice Cream Cones

Another great gluten-free option, these vegan ice cream cones are a favourite with little ones thanks to the hit of strawberry sweetness. They're the perfect alternative to ice cream van goodies.

Best for: kids big and small

Average price: £2.00

Availability: 3/5

Taste: 4/5 

Overall rating: 4/5 

Almond Dream Mint Chocolate Chip

A delicious, ambitious offering from one of our favourite vegan milk brands, this one is great for those who love classic ice cream flavours. It's creamy but light at the same time, making it sinfully moreish.

Best for: mint and choc chip ice cream addicts

Average price: £2.99

Availability: 2/5 

Taste: 3/5

Overall rating: 3/5 

Halo Top Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

If we could bath in this, we probably would. (Read 'definitely'). Unfortunately, it's another one that's crazy hard to get hold of, as it seems to sell out the moment it hits the shelves.

Best for: if you want a lighter option with zero compromise on taste

Average price: £4.99

Availability: 1/5 

Taste: 5/5

Overall rating: 4/5 

Stay tuned for the next instalment in our Vegan Shopping Basket series.
