McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams Moooves into Dairy-Free Frozen Dessert


McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams recently launched a line of dairy-free ice cream that’s available at their Southern California scoop shops. The pints can also be ordered via their website (below) for cool doorstep delivery within the U.S.

McConnell's Fine Ice Cream Launches Dairy-Free Scoops and Pints!
The 70-year-old, Santa Barbara-based family business crafted their vegan flavors with a proprietary blend of 100% micronized pea protein. The result is a base that is more neutral in flavor (no almond or coconut aftertaste!). And the company says it shares the mouthfeel of McConnell’s super smooth ice creams.

The McConnell’s Dairy-Free Frozen Desserts Collection currently includes the following flavors.

  • Dark Chocolate Chip – An indulgent trio of Guittard dark cocoas is paired with melted bittersweet chocolate chips in this chocoholic dream.
  • Toasted Coconut Almond Chip – Generous amounts of toasted coconut, salt-roasted almonds, and bittersweet shards are scattered about for ample flavor in every bite.
  • Cookies & Cream – The vanilla based is packed with crushed Newman’s Own Organics sandwich cookies.
  • Turkish Coffee – This full-bodied ice cream is enriched with bold, house-brewed espresso.
  • Eureka Lemon & Marionberries – Marionberry preserves are swirled into their tart and tangy, Eureka lemon-infused frozen dessert.

And the company says that these five vegan flavors are just the beginning. They already have plans to add more flavors to their dairy-free line up.

McConnell's Fine Ice Cream now offers dairy-free flavors at their scoop shops (all vegan too!)

Where to Find McConnell’s Fine Ice Cream

They have a smattering of scoop shops in Southern California. See the website below for addresses and hours. But if you live out of area, you can order online! The price is a splurge, but they do ship frozen pints direct to customers throughout the U.S.
