Where to Find Amy’s and Perry’s Vegan Ice Cream Flavors
These days, you can’t visit a supermarket and not spot at least one vegan option in the ice cream section. So many major companies now offer vegan ice cream pints, bars, and sandwiches. But what about ice cream shops? Turns out, they’re catering to the ever-growing vegan demand, too. Check out a few of our favorites:
Amy’s Ice Creams
According to Amy’s Ice Creams, “By popular demand, we here at Amy’s created our very own vegan ice cream based on our most popular flavor [Vegan Mexican Vanilla]!” Vegan chocolate and, on the rare occasion, a vegan coffee flavor are also available. The Texas-based chain regularly offers at least one nondairy variety at each Austin, Houston, and San Antonio location. Click here to find an Amy’s near you.
If things aren’t meant to be, then why is there an ice cream place across the street from my motel? . . . #gotcha #austin #austinTX #sothisisaustin #keepaustinweird #travelphoto #travelgram #amysicecream #icecream #meanttobe

Perry’s Ice Cream
If you live in the Northeastern U.S., chances are you’ve heard of Perry’s Ice Cream. The regional brand has been serving ice cream in places like New York, western Pennsylvania, New England, and northeast Ohio for decades. Now, to meet the growing demand for animal-free food, it’s added three vegan flavors to its lineup: Cookies & Cream, Lemon Raspberry, and Vanilla. Click here to find a stand that offers the almond-based flavors.
Did you know that we are offering TWO plant-based products exclusively at ice cream stands this summer? Use the flavor finder on our website to find out which stands carry our vegan Cookies & Cream and Vanilla flavors! . . . . #PerrysGoodStuff #PerrysIceCream #IceCream #Vegan

Baskin-Robbins has a variety of “Ice” and sorbet flavors, including the delicious Horchata Ice. Keep your eyes peeled for other new vegan flavors at your local store.
@BaskinRobbins just debuted a #vegan Horchata flavor, and you know we had to try it! It’s got hints of cinnamon and coconut—and it proves that dairy-free ice cream is MAINSTREAM in 2018 🙌

Ben & Jerry’s
After vegan pints were introduced, cruelty-free scoops became available in select Ben & Jerry’s shops nationwide. Flavors include Chunky Monkey, Chocolate Fudge Brownie, P.B. & Cookies, and Coffee Caramel Fudge—all vegan and all delicious.

Low-calorie favorite Halo Top made nondairy ice cream dreams come true last year when it announced new vegan flavors. Now, if you’re in Los Angeles, you can get nondairy chocolate and cookie dough ice cream at Halo Top Scoop Shops.
This place literally put the cherry on top on my visit to Cali!🍒🍦 • I’m a mega fan of their dairy-free ice cream (vegan choc. cookie dough pictured)😋 And for those of you unfamiliar with Halo Top, it is healthy, protein ice cream….need I say more???😉

Jeni Britton Bauer, founder of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, set out to “make a plant-based ice cream using … perfect and wonderful plants, cacao, and coconut with little else.” Enter Dairy-Free Dark Chocolate Truffle, available at Jeni’s Scoop Shops nationwide.
Dairy free? YES. I wanted to know, can we make a plant-based ice cream using a perfect and wonderful plants, cacao and coconut with little else, that could hold their own against our dairy versions? The answer ended up being HELL YES WE CAN. And when I say this, know that it means it hits my own standards, dairy, or not. And, what’s more, it makes me feel like a goddess when I eat it (talk about magic). In stores now. More flavors in the works.

McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams
For 70 years, McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams, based in Santa Barbara, California, was known for its dairy “products.” Now, the brand is giving the people what they want: vegan ice cream scoops.
Picked up a scoop of dairy-free plant-based ice cream on my walk home today 🤤 This baby is the Toasted Coconut Almond Chip flavor
A post shared by Emily Cosentino (@kaleosaurus) on
The deliciously creamy options currently include Cookies & Cream, Dark Chocolate Chip, Eureka Lemon & Marionberries, Toasted Coconut Almond Chip, and Turkish Coffee. The new flavors go “well with Netflix and couches” but don’t “go well with milk as that would kinda defeat the whole purpose,” according to the company. Visit your local McConnell’s scoop shop to try the new vegan flavors today. Not near a scoop shop? No problem! Visit a Gelson’s or Bristol Farms supermarket to pick up a pint, or click here to have a pint (or many) shipped straight to your door.
Salt & Straw
Most Salt & Straw locations offer the mouthwatering vegan Roasted Strawberry Coconut flavor. However, if you’re lucky enough to find yourself in Seattle, you can also try Coconut Mint Chip Cupcake and Rachel’s Raspberry Ginger Beer—both vegan.
No line at @saltandstraw? You better believe I’m getting some vegan coconut strawberry ice cream! #iheartportland #nowaiting #nodairyhere #springishere #saltandstraw

Sub Zero Nitrogen Ice Cream
Sub Zero shops are taking over the U.S., and luckily, they have vegan options. Every ice cream order can be customized. Choose from a soy-, almond-, or cashew-milk base. Then choose the flavor and toppings you want, and let the liquid nitrogen do the rest.
