Updated January 2023! Menchie’s is the world’s largest self-serve frozen yogurt franchise, with 500 locations worldwide. For quite some time, they’ve served a big range of dairy-free sorbets, but in 2016, they decided to tackle creamy vegan frozen yogurt.
Their first foray was a limited edition dairy-free flavor made with Indonesian coconut milk, Tahitian vanilla, and organic agave syrup. It sold out very quickly. Nevertheless, it took Menchie’s two more years to come out with a new flavor. In late 2018, they tested a Chocolate Almond Milk yogurt. It was also phased out, but new dairy-free flavors started rolling out more quickly at Menchie’s, about one every six months. Now they always have a vegan flavor on corporate rotation, along with several sorbets.
Menchie’s Dairy-Free Menu Guide with Vegan Options
Flavors are often on rotation, and toppings can vary by location. In fact, some Menchie’s store owners might source some toppings locally. So always verify what’s in store. The list below is more of an all-inclusive collection of corporate dairy-free offerings that you might find, as provided by Menchie’s. We’ve also included some dairy-free FAQs after the lists.
Other Allergen & Dietary Notes: All of the flavors and toppings listed below are also vegan, unless otherwise noted. The Froyo flavors listed are also made without egg, nuts, peanut, soy, and wheat, unless otherwise noted (ie made with almond milk).

Do Menchie’s Dairy-Free Flavors contain Live & Active Cultures?
The dairy-free and vegan flavors, including the creamy varieties and sorbets, are not cultured. So they do not contain any probiotics.
Are the Cones and Waffle Bowls Dairy-Free at Menchie’s?
Their cones reportedly contain dairy, but we’ve been told by the staff that the Waffle Bowls at Menchie’s are dairy-free by ingredients! We have not confirmed if they are vegan-friendly.

Try Chocolate Hazelnut Yogurt
Loved this creamy, dark, dark chocolate deliciousness! I used a light sprinkle of sliced almonds and a small scoop of whipped cream only. All this and no fear of the dreaded after-effects of dairy. Thank you, Menchies!
Blue Diamond Cookie Sandwich Froyo
I just saw the sign at my menchies today advertising the blue diamond almond butter dairy free flavor and I had no idea fro yo shops were finally seeking dairy free. IT WAS AMAZING. SOOOO GOOD. Just like regular fro yo BECAUSE I FELT AWESOME while and after eating it. I kinda wish I didn’t know, just because now I am gonna get it all the time. Please try it you won’t regret it. I hope they keep it / dairy free flavors around.
Tried the Creamy Flavor!
The dairy-free Cookies & Almond Butter was the feature flavor at my local Menchie’s, so we tried it. It was a little on the sweet side, but very good. Both my husband & I approved. It has a nice Oreo flavor with just a little nuttiness. I’d love it if it were even a little more creamy, but it was satisfying. My only complaint is the giant, one size fits all tubs for serving. It would be great if they had smaller bowls available too. Haven’t tried their sorbet flavors yet.
I took my kids to Menchie’s (frozen yogurt and sorbets) this week for the first time, and I was blown away at all the dairy free options. So delicious and easy to identify which were safe. Loved it!!
