I am a huge fan of ice cream. My favourite flavour is mint chocolate and my favourite brand is Cornetto, although I can no longer eat any of them. Not being able to eat ice cream was one of the hardest things to adjust to with a dairy allergy. I don’t recall there being any dairy-free ice creams around when I first developed it, but thanks to the rise of veganism, start-ups and niche brands have made it possible for people like me to enjoy the little things.
Introducing Halo Top – January’s dairy-free discovery. I’ve heard of the brand before. They’re known for their low-calorie ice creams, but I had no idea that included dairy-free versions, until later on in the month when I was scanning the Tesco frozen section in the hopes of finding something, anything sweet and cold that I could indulge in.
So far, I’ve only seen this peanut butter cup flavour. The ice cream is made from coconut milk. This isn’t my first choice because it has such a strong taste and you notice that as soon as you eat it. But then the peanut butter shyly melts its way through and you’re satisfied. If coconut milk is your first-choice alternative to milk, then you’ll love this.
It’s not my favourite – Booja Booja is at the top of my list because it’s made from cashew nuts, which I think is the perfect base to build on – but it’s an alternative for all vegans and those allergic to dairy.
I’m glad that Halo Top thought to give the dairy-free community ice cream that is less calories per tub like they did for everyone else. Score!
This tub cost £5.00 in Tesco. Halo Top also has three other flavours featured on its website: Toasted Coconut, Chocolate and Sea Salt Caramel. So, will you be giving Halo Top a try?
