I love anything chocolate mint flavored, especially when it’s chocolate peppermint. Alas, the chocolate peppermint season is all too short. For the rest of the year, I turn to chocolate mint treats. Here is a list of some of my favorite dairy-free chocolate mint treats–and some I can’t wait to try! Most are vegan, too, with many gluten-free and soy-free options.
40 Dairy-Free Chocolate Mint Treats from Store-Bought to Homemade
All of the non-dairy products mentioned below are dairy-free by ingredients. Ingredients are subject to change at any time, so always read the label! And as always, contact the manufacturer to discuss their production processes if a severe food allergy is a concern for you. There is always some degree of cross-contamination risk, and allergen labels (or lack of) should not be relied on exclusively. We cannot evaluate if a product is safe for your needs.
Dairy-Free Chocolate Mint Beverages
Chocolate mint is my favorite flavor of tea. That’s what inspired this column! A springtime favorite of mine is Bigelow Thin Mint Herbal Tea, but it’s harder to find each year. I had to find some substitutes to help me make it through till December when Bigelow Peppermint Bark Tea is available again.
Three chocolate mint teas I enjoy are: Stash Oolong Chocolate Mint Tea for a treat with a caffeinated boost, Tazo Cocoa Mint Mate, which has a low caffeine level, and David’s Tea Mint Chocolate Rooibos, which is caffeine free.
In the mood for hot chocolate? Try Castle Kitchen Marvelous Mint Dark Chocolate. It’s dairy free and vegan. Or make your own with Alisa’s Mint Hot Chocolate Recipe or the mint version of this Dairy-Free Hot Cocoa Mix.
If you want to add chocolate mint flavor to your tea or coffee instead, try this shelf-stable powdered dairy-free Chocolate Mint Superfood Creamer.
Dairy-Free Chocolate Mint Cookies
Yes, some Girl Scout Cookies are dairy free! But they aren’t available all year. Here are some chocolate mint treats that are!
Aldi Fudge Mint Cookies are very tasty, dairy-free Girl Scout look alikes, and they’re available all the time! You can also make your own Dairy-Free Thin Mint Cookies at home, thanks to this recipe from Alisa.
Dairy-free chocolate mint sandwich cookies are also pretty easy to find. Look for Oreo Mint Cremes, Oreo Mint Creme Thins, or Newman O’s Creme Filled Mint Chocolate Cookies. Or, for a simple recipe, make this Chocolate Mint Filling and sandwich it between two store-bought dairy-free cookies, like Enjoy Life Double Chocolate Crunchy Cookies.
But if you’re looking for a more fulfilling cookie, Lenny & Larry’s Choc-o-Mint Complete Cookie is worth considering. It’s a BIG sweet treat that’s packed with fiber and protein.
And for a showstopping cookie centerpiece that’s perfect for pizza night, make this Mint Chocolate Chip Brownie Pizza Recipe.
Dairy-Free Chocolate Mint Candies
I can’t write about chocolate mint without mentioning chocolate mint candies and chocolates! Everyone is familiar with red and white Starlight mints, but did you know that they make Dairy-Free Chocolate Mint Hard Candies, too?
A favorite brand of chocolate bars is Endangered Species, and their Dark Chocolate Mint Bar is wonderful. Equal Exchange Chocolates Dark Chocolate Mint Crunch Bars are dotted with delicious crunchy mint, and they’re organic and fair trade. If you’re paleo or need a low-glycemic option, then I recommend Hu Crunchy Mint Chocolate Bars.
Or you can make your own dairy-free mint cups with Alisa’s no bake, four-ingredient Chocolate Mint Fudge Tartlets Recipe!
Dairy-Free Chocolate Mint Frozen Desserts
Not surprisingly, mint chocolate chip is one of my favorite ice cream flavors. I really enjoy O’My Mint Chip Gelato and Breyer’s Mint Chocolate Chip Non-Dairy Ice Cream. Both are delicious in our recipes for Grasshopper Ice Cream Pie and 5-Minute Mint Chip Vegan Mug Brownie Sundae.
Dairy-Free Chocolate Mint Protein Bars and Bites
If you’re looking for a healthier chocolate mint treat, there are several dairy-free protein and energy bars on the market. The CLIF Bar company has two dairy-free chocolate mint bars: CLIF Builder’s Protein Bar Chocolate Mint and CLIF Bar Cool Mint Chocolate Energy Bar.
A few other great options include Zing Dark Chocolate Mint Vitality Bars, NuGo Dark Mint Chocolate Chip Bars, Vega Sport Crispy Mint Chocolate Protein Bars, and Blake’s Chocolate Mint Seed Based Protein Bars for top food allergy-friendly. And we’re pretty intrigued by these paleo and vegan Mint Creme Trail Truffles.
