There?s no shortage of satisfying snacks for the dietary restricted (think vegan granola bars and gluten-free cookies). But when it comes to ice cream, dairy-free treats can often feel like a sorry consolation prize.
Below, three options that won?t have you missing the milk.
Genuto Enjoy the creamy texture of gelato sans the cream with Genuto ($12 per pint), which is made entirely from nuts. This dairy-free treat (available at select Whole Foods stores) also contains beneficial probiotics and all-natural spices, plus the nuts make for some seriously robust flavors like creamy pistachio and chocolaty cardamom.
Scream Sorbet Sorbet is nothing new, but the rich smoothness and bold flavors found in Scream Sorbet (starting at $8 for 12 ounces) is worth the buzz. Made in California from local ingredients and with the help of a Pacojet (a fancy piece of kitchen equipment that yields impossibly smooth ice cream), Scream can be shipped anywhere nationwide and even customized if you don?t see the flavor you?re craving.
The Spunky Coconut Dairy-Free Ice Cream Rather not wait? Vegan blogger Kelly Brozyna?s new cookbook ($20) offers simple recipes you can whip up at home. Though you?ll need an ice-cream maker for most of the frozen concoctions, the creative possibilities--we love the bing-cherry creation--justify the investment.
