12 Vegan Ice Creams to Scoop If You Just Can’t With Dairy
For vegans and anyone allergic to dairy, non-dairy ice cream has never tasted better. Whether you snag readymade pints from Whole Foods or churn out your own ice-cold confections for your next ice cream social, your inner Dairy Queen will be very happy after just one bite. Take your vegan ice cream party to the next level by turning these flavors into handheld ice cream sandos or scoop your scoops into these adorbs waffle cone dishes. Here are 12 delicious vegan ice creams that will keep you chill this summer.
1. Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream: Everything we like is here in one ice cream. Chocolate. Check. Peanut butter. Check. Cookie dough. Check. Only 10 ingredients. Check. Make this tonight. Quadruple Check. (via Minimalist Baker)
2. Salted Caramel Ice Cream: A blend of cashews, almonds and sea salt is the secret to making an honest-to-goodness vegan caramel. You’ll want to scoop this out of the pan with a cute-as-hell walrus ice cream scoop. (via 40 Aprons)
3. Vegan Rocky Road Ice Cream: We just LOVE when chocolate ice cream is swirled with mini marshmallows and almonds. If you’re wondering where to get vegan mini marshmallows, check out these little guys from Chicago Vegan Foods. (via Yummy Mummy Kitchen)
5. Strawberry Cream Cheese Ice Cream: This ice cream mixes fresh, juicy strawberries with store-bought ingredients for a gorgeous ice cream hack that is ready in 30 minutes or less. (via Namely Marly)
6. Banana Coconut Ginger Ice Cream: Every vegan knows a simple trick for making ice cream quickly: Pop frozen banana slices into a food processor and give a whirl until your bananas turn into a soft-serve consistency. This five-ingredient, banana-based dessert is so simple and refreshing. Go ahead and treat yo’self! (via The Simple Veganista)
7. DF Mavens Key Lime Creme ($6): This ice cream company is ridic. They offer soy, coconut, almond and no-sugar-added pints in crazy good flavors like Caramel Apple Almond, Sicilian Hazelnut Truffle and Mocha Almond Chip. We are partial to the Key Lime Creme that tastes like pie, including a crust inside. If you’re in NYC, visit the DF Mavens’ brick-and-mortar ice cream shop, or order pints for delivery straight to your home.
8. Vegan Cake Batter Ice Cream: Another ‘nanner hack, but this time, vanilla and almond extract give it a licking-the-bowl-of-batter taste. Add your favorite sprinkles and you’ve got birthday cake in a bowl. (via Munchin’ With Munchkin)
9. Steve’s Ice Cream ($10): This Brooklyn-based brand only makes a few vegan flavors, but when those flavors are Cold-Brewed Cinnamon Coffee, Dark Chocolate Salty Caramel, Mint Cacao Chip and Burnt Sugar Vanilla, that’s all we need. Order online or find them at your local health food store.
10. Pistachio Ice Cream: Blended pistachios give this flavor a nice green hue without any added food coloring. You’ll need an ice cream maker for this one, but the reward will be worth it. (via My Darling Vegan)
11. Coconut Bliss ($7): Yes, this brand is a tad pricier than the others, but it’s packed with non-GMO, fair-trade and organic ingredients, so the sticker shock is totally worth it. Our favorites include the Ginger Cookie Caramel and the Cherry Amaretto. To sample some, visit one of the brand’s in-store tastings happening all over the country.
12. Raspberry Chocolate Chunk Sorbet: If there’s a bounty of fresh raspberries at your local farmers’ market, make this ice cream STAT. With options to make it with or without an ice cream maker, this four-ingredient refreshing sorbet couldn’t be any easier. (via Will Cook for Friends)

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
