Where to Get Vegan Ice Cream in the UK

Are you wondering where to get vegan ice cream in the UK?

Or do you want to find out which vegan ice cream brands are worth splashing out on?

To help you decide, we’re sharing our top ten vegan ice creams, most of which can be bought in normal UK supermarkets.

For a full list that you can filter by supermarket, visit our ice cream section.

1. Ben and Jerry’s Peanut Butter and Cookies Ice Cream

If you haven’t heard about vegan Ben and Jerry’s hitting the UK, you must have been living in a cave. There are currently three flavours available: Peanut Butter and Cookies, Chocolate Fudge Brownie, and Chunky Monkey. Peanut Butter is our favourite!

2. Almond Dream Salted Caramel Ice Cream

This Salted Caramel ice cream from Almond Dream is rich, creamy, and has a delicious caramel flavour. It’s a great treat if you want something more exciting than vanilla, but not as indulgent as Ben and Jerry’s.

3. Alpro Hazelnut Chocolate Ice Cream

Alpro ice cream is available in Vanilla, Coconut, and Hazelnut Chocolate. This one’s the winner for us.

4. Morrison’s FreeFrom Vanilla & Strawberry Swirl Iced Dessert Ice Cream

 

Morrison’s recently released their own range of vegan ice creams, available in chocolate, strawberry and vanilla. Let’s hope the other supermarkets follow suit!

5. Swedish Glace Chocolate Ice Cream

This chocolate Swedish Glace tastes exactly like the dairy version, so it’s perfect for sharing with non-vegans!

6. Booja-Booja Raspberry Ripple Ice Cream

Want to enjoy a fancy, vegan version of a childhood classic? Booja Booja has got you covered.

7. Frill The Frozen Smoothie Intense Chocolate

This frozen smoothie is low on sugar and high in fibre, ideal if you’re looking for a slightly healthier option.

8. Aldi Coconut Cream Iced Dessert

Even Aldi are now offering a vegan ice cream – this coconut iced dessert tastes great and doesn’t cost a fortune. Also available in chocolate.

9. The Coconut Collaborative Coconut & Vanilla Snowconut

Another tasty coconut-based option, available in a range of flavours.

10. Valsoia Soya Ice Cream Sandwiches

These Valsoia ice cream sandwiches are currently only available via Ocado, but we’ve heard great reviews!

Tesco Vegan Ice Lolly Range Review

Wondering whether or not to try out the range of vegan lollies and ice creams available at Tesco? We’ve reviewed each variety to help you decide.

Tesco Free From Choc Sticks Review

These Choc Sticks are really tasty, with a thick layer of dark chocolate and rich, creamy vanilla ice cream inside. Swedish Glace sell a similar product, but Tesco’s are slightly larger and have more chocolate – definitely our preferred option. These go down well with non-vegans.

Tesco Free From Toffee & Vanilla Cones Review

These cones are a fun alternative to Cornettos. The ice cream tasted completely authentic, and the toffee flavor is sweet without being too sickly. The cone tastes a little ‘off’ and is crunchier than usual, possibly because it’s gluten free. The bottom of the cone contains a generous amount of chocolate.

Tesco Free From Strawberry and Vanilla Cones Review

Tasty ice cream with a strong strawberry flavour, these are perfect for summer. The cone has the same issues as mentioned above, but that doesn’t stop these from being delicious.

Tesco Free From Fruit Splits Review

These vegan fruit splits aren’t currently offered anywhere but Tesco and they taste pretty much identical to the dairy versions. Perfect if you’ve been missing these. The outer layer is nice and fruity, and the ice cream inside is sweet and creamy.

Tesco Free From Ice Lollies Review

These free from ice lollies are similar to Wall’s Mini Milks, with four chocolate and four strawberry in each pack. The taste and texture are authentic and they’re nice and creamy. Would be nice if a vanilla flavor was included too, but that’s our only complaint with these. Small size makes them perfect for kids.

If you’re looking for authentic vegan ice creams and lollies at a pretty reasonable price, we’d definitely recommend the Tesco range.

Where to Buy Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream in the UK

There’s a surprisingly good selection of vegan chocolate ice cream sold in UK supermarkets – check out the list below. These vary in price, flavour and ingredients so there should be one to suit you.

Swedish Glace Chocolate Non-Dairy Ice Cream

Swedish Glace Chocolate Non Dairy Ice Cream 750Ml

This soy chocolate ice cream tastes exactly like regular chocolate ice cream, and is one of the cheaper options. Currently sold in Tesco and Waitrose. Also available in strawberry and vanilla.

Sainsbury’s Deliciously Free From Chocolate Iced Dessert

Sainsbury's Deliciously Freefrom Chocolate Iced Dessert 480ml

A fairly new offering from Sainsbury’s, based on coconut milk, this is also available in strawberry. We’ve heard great reviews of both flavours.

Antonio Russo Dairy-Free Chocolato

Antonio Russo Dairy-Free Chocolato 500ml

This slightly more exotic option includes orange zest, which makes a nice change. Sold in Waitrose.

Jude’s Dairy Free Chocolate Ice Cream

Jude's dairy free chocolate ice cream 500ml

Another Waitrose option, we’ve heard mixed reviews about this one. Some say the flavour is too dark/bitter.

Booja-Booja Hunky Punky Chocolate Ice Cream

A luxury option, this is sold in Waitrose, some branches of Holland and Barrett, and many independent health stores. Good once-in-a-while treat option.

You can also try vegan frozen yoghurt and frozen smoothie, both available in chocolate flavours. What’s your favourite vegan ice cream?

1 Minute Vegan Chocolate Mug Cake

Sometimes you just need cake. If you don’t fancy baking or searching the shops, then this 1 minute vegan mug cake is perfect. We’ve tried several different recipes over the years, and this one is the result of some trial and error.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons soy milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • Vegan mini marshmallows (optional)
  • Ice cream (optional)

Method

  1. Mix dry ingredients together thoroughly in a mug using a fork.

2. Add wet ingredients and mix until smooth. Add a splash of hot water if needed.

4. Microwave for one minute on full power. If using marshmallows, throw these on top for the last 15 seconds.

cooked

5. Top with ice cream and enjoy.

cooked with ice cream

The finished cake should have a soft, warm consistency. If you’d prefer it slightly gooier, like brownie, just cook for a little less time. The slightly melted marshmallows are a fun topping, and the ice cream stops the cake tasting too dry.

We used Sweet Freedom vegetarian mini marshmallow, available in Holland and Barrett, and Swedish Glace Chocolate Ice Cream, but any brands should work fine. For an extra treat, try adding a dollop of peanut butter or biscuit spread to melt into the middle of the cake.

iceland-nice-cream

It’s £1.50 for a 90ml pot, and we’ve seen some reviews express surprise at how small the containers are, although the verdict on taste seems to have been positive.
