Baskin-Robbins Focuses on Oat Milk with Latest Dairy-Free Flavors

0

Updated in 2021! When plant-based food sales reached double digits across the US, many ice cream brands scooped up the opportunity to release non-dairy flavors. Baskin-Robbins was a little late to the social, but they eventually perfected vegan versions of some classic fan-favorite flavors. And they’ve continued to evolve with new flavors and bases. But this year, they’re fixated on oat milk. Their latest flavors include Non-Dairy Strawberry Streusel and Salted Fudge Bar, each made with oat milk ice cream.

In this post you’ll find detailed information on these flavors (click to jump to: Baskin Robbins Creamy Non-Dairy Ice Cream Ingredients) and a full guide to ordering dairy-free and vegan at Baskin Robbins (click to jump to: How to Order Dairy-Free at Baskin-Robbins)

Aside from the slow and unknowledgeable staff, the non-dairy ice cream (salted fudge) tasted like the real thing. Be sure to save up first though, $7.12 for 2 single scoop cups (think kiddie cup size)

I had the chocolate chip cookie dough and it was great but I like the coffee caramel chunk most! I’m hoping you will bring it back. I so appreciate that you have the non dairy ice cream that way when I take my grandchildren for ice cream I can have some too. This also saves me from eating a whole pint from the grocery store!

Strawberry Streusel: Not Recommended

Rated 1 out of 5
April 29, 2021

I love oat milk and granola, but the “strawberry ribbon swirl” in this new flavor is gross and leaves you with a horrible artificial strawberry aftertaste. I’m shocked that this flavor made it out of the Baskin-Robbins Test Kitchen. If people were not buying their absolutely fantastic (and now discontinued for some reason) Non-Dairy Chocolate Extreme flavor, I doubt very much that the new Non-Dairy Strawberry Streusel will be a big seller.

I tried the dairy free cookie dough and it was good! The only issue I had was I asked if I could have it as a milkshake (if it was possible)and they agreed. i was thinking they would use a milk substitute and they just poured milk in and it made me sick 🙁

Response from Go Dairy Free

Yes, please make sure to reference our guide. We did inquire and they do not offer dairy-free milk beverage. Only those items listed in the post above were identified as made without dairy.

The ice cream has great flavor, but it’s missing the creamy regular ice cream taste. For a substitute it’s great and it works, but don’t go in there thinking it’s the same… because it isn’t. Good Job 31 flavors for making this for us non-dairy eaters. I tried the coffee caramel chunk.

After recently beginning a plant based diet, I took my grandaughter for ice cream knowing I would only be able to watch her eat her treat while I would have to settle for a bottle of water. Boy was I surprised with B-R’s soy based offering of Coffee Caramel Chunk, it’ was creamy, flavorful, and just sweet enough to satisfy! I will definitely be back!

I had a scoop of the cookie dough and it really hit the sweet spot! The flavor of the ice cream was sweet and rich, though a little lighter / more refreshing than classic ice cream. Loved the chocolate sauce swirl. My only two wishes were for chocolate shavings instead of big chocolate chunks and more cookie dough chunks! I only had a couple in my scoop. I sampled the Extreme Chocolate and thought it needed a pinch of salt – the flavor wasn’t well rounded. But my husband got a scoop and really enjoyed it. He sampled the Coffee Caramel and said it was good, but didn’t inspire him to get a scoop of it.

I have to follow a diabetic and a renal diet and have yet to find any “ice cream” for it. It is my favorite food.
