Looking for an ice cream alternative? Sink your spoon into these vegan flavours for a treat that’s just as tasty.
We scream for ice cream, and if you’re vegan or lactose intolerant, go ahead and scream a little louder ‘cos you can get on the sticky sweet action. While Singapore is already sprinkled with ice cream parlours, there’s a steady drizzle of vegan ice cream making its way to our sunny shores. Using plant-based alternatives such as almond, rice, coconut and soy milk, dairy-free ice cream is lower in calories but still big on flavours. So, if you’re ditching dairy or simply looking for a healthier option, these vegan ice cream brands in Singapore will hit the sweet spot.

From the folks who brought you the now-defunct Brownice, Smoocht operates under the same belief, serving up food that does not harm the planet or its animals. Made from brown rice, fruits and pure nut butters, one scoop of ice cream only contains about 80 to 140 calories (yes to more cheat days!). Expect classic and Asian flavours like chocolate, Thai tea and matcha. Now, don’t mind us if we help ourselves to an extra scoop of dairy-free goodness.

Using only fresh and natural ingredients – sans preservatives, refined sugar, artificial flavouring and all those nasties – Kind Kones offers great alternatives to the sugary dessert. Offering a bevy of fun flavours such as almond brittle fudge, baklava, black forest and charcoal vanilla, the Malaysian brand proves that vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free ice cream can taste just as good too!
