Ben & Jerry’s Is Releasing 3 New Dairy-Free Flavors For The Lactose Intolerant Among Us

Ben & Jerry’s Is Releasing 3 New Dairy-Free Flavors For The Lactose Intolerant Among Us Ben & Jerry's

I don’t know about you, but now that I’m in my 30s, dairy is extremely iffy for me. A little too much lactose and the situation is not pretty. Because of this, I’ve switched to alternative products like oat or nut milk-based products. I can’t give up cheese (or rather I won’t), but I will give up regular ice cream for Ben & Jerry’s new dairy-free flavors.

  1. The new blends use sunflower butter. While previous vegan blends from Ben & Jerry’s have used almond milk instead of cow’s milk, this is the first time the brand is using sunflower butter in their blend, according to Delish.
  2. The three new flavors sound absolutely delicious. Frankly, I don’t know which one to try first. The new sunflower butter formula will be available in three new super delicious-sounding flavors:  “milk” & cookies, crème brûlée, and mint chocolate cookie. “They’re a new twist on vegan euphoria,” read a post on Ben & Jerry’s Instagram page.
  3. The “milk” & cookies flavor sounds particularly promising. The “milk” & cookies variety obviously doesn’t have any actual milk in it. Instead, it’s described as a “vanilla frozen dessert base made with sunflower butter” which is then mixed with loads of chocolate chip cookies, chocolate sandwich cookies, and chocolate cookie swirls.
  4. Then again, so does the crème brûlée. This one has a “burnt caramel base that has brown sugar cookies and salted caramel swirls.” A burnt caramel base? Lord, have mercy on my waistline when I eat a whole tub of this in one sitting.
  5. Don’t discount the mint chocolate cookie flavor either! This blend is the most classic of the bunch, with a mint-flavored dairy-free dessert base with chocolate sandwich cookies mixed in. I used to love this flavor in its regular incarnation, so this one is right up my alley.
  6. The new flavors should be hitting stores soon. There’s no specific release date for Ben & Jerry’s new dairy-free flavors, but the Instagram post announcing their release does instruct customers to “find them soon” in the frozen aisle. I don’t know about you, but I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled.
