Vegan Ice Cream Brands and Flavors to Try

Look around and you’ll see new vegan ice cream options popping up everywhere—because you, the consumer, expressed an interest in having these products available. Many major ice cream companies now offer dairy-free ice cream, which is a huge step forward for animals. By choosing options from this list, you can help prevent cows from being used for their milk. In the dairy industry, calves are stolen from their mothers shortly after birth. Cows are doting and devoted mothers who will fight to defend their young, and you’ll be helping to end this torturous cycle by eating only vegan ice cream.

Keep mother cows with their calves—check out these vegan ice cream flavors from brands you’ll love:
