16 Handles Swirls Oatly Soft Serve in Classic and Seasonal Flavors


Last Update in November 2021! They weren’t the first frozen yogurt shop to feature dairy-free soft serve, but 16 Handles has definitely been the most innovative. Within a few short years, they have released about a dozen creamy vegan flavors made with cashew milk, soy milk, almond milk, and now, oat milk. 16 Handles has partnered with Oatly to churn out new dairy-free flavors for their shops. Most recently, they released Caramel Apple and Cinnamon Bun!
