Menchie’s Swirls Several Dairy-Free Froyo Flavors into their Menu

0

Updated in 2021! 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.

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!

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!!
