Detroit's Vegan Ice Cream Shops

You don’t need a study to prove that ice cream is enticing—the thought of an ice cream truck alone can make one salivate.

There are those of us for which ice cream is not an option though. We speak, of course, of lactose intolerance. Dairy does a number on a large portion of the population, but we all still want ice cream, or at least ice-cream-adjacent treats. Here are some local spots that have vegan options available.

The non-dairy ice cream market is witnessing significant growth from recent years. This growth is attributed to the increase of those with a variety of milk-related health issues including lactose intolerance along with the growing plant-based milk production options available.

Ice creams are now made of milk substitutes like creamy coconut, soy, cashew, oat or almond milk which are all known as non-dairy ice milk options in the non-dairy ice cream. There are more options than that though; some vegan ice cream is even made with avocados. The variety of non-dairy ingredients to make ice cream is quite amazing.

As the demand for nondairy explodes, so does the number of products on the market, including nondairy ice creams, yogurts, cheeses, and a variety of nut and plant milks used to make them. The best part is that these options all actually taste great and many non-dairy ice cream options are healthier. Vegan ice cream is very rich in fiber and some experts agree that non-dairy, vegan ice cream made from soy, almond, or coconut can have an anti-aging effect, which is another reason you should consider taking on non-dairy ice cream. The non-dairy ice creams are better for the environment than the traditional ice creams as well. Living a dairy-free lifestyle provide exemplary health benefits like reducing bloating, clear skin and highly suitable for people with allergies. If you do not have any dairy issues, still try vegan ice cream out for yourself and see how you feel after trying it; you may notice the difference is worth the switch. Living a plant-based lifestyle has benefits that still give one the chance to indulge in foods that taste just like their non-vegan counterparts-without the problems.

Thanks to companies recognizing what flavors people look for when they want to enjoy their favorite vegan sweets, there are truly so many options and flavors to choose from. Most vegan ice cream are sold in the frozen food aisle, either in the vegan area or sometimes mixed with regular ice cream. Not only can you indulge in vegan ice cream at home, but it is considerably so popular now that you can even find non-dairy ice cream at local ice cream shops.
