This week in our dairy-free Friday Bites, we’ve got the scoop on trendy ice cream maker, Halo Top. And we’ve added a new feature for trending weekly posts
Halo Top Launches New Dairy-Free Ice Cream Line
Known for decadent ice cream with “light as a cloud” calorie counts, Halo Top Creamery has announced a new line of dairy-free pints. The 7 fledgling flavors are already up on their website, and are rolling out to stores as I type. They include Peanut Butter Cup, Chocolate, Oatmeal Cookie, Sea Salt Caramel, Caramel Macchiato, Cinnamon Roll and Chocolate Covered Banana.
“The number one request that we get from our fans is to make a non-dairy and vegan-friendly version of Halo Top. Whether you have to or choose to restrict dairy—or only eat vegan—we always want to make sure we listen to our fans,” Justin Woolverton, founder and CEO of Halo Top, said in a press release. “It took a long time to ‘get it right,’ but we’re absolutely thrilled with the outcome and can’t wait for our fans to try these flavors.”
The dairy-free ice cream is coconut based, and also labeled as vegan and soy-free. It packs in just 280 to 360 calories and 16 to 24 grams of sugar per FULL PINT. That’s a mere 70 to 90 calories and 4 to 6 grams of sugar per typical half-cup serving.
To keep their sugar counts low, Halo Top uses a combination of three sweeteners: organic cane sugar, stevia, and erythritol. Plus, they reduce the fat to make it airier for a lighter, more whipped consistency. We assume these are also the secrets behind Halo Top’s new dairy-free flavors, too.
The new Halo Top Dairy-Free pints will be stocked in store freezers throughout the U.S. by mid-October. But if you simply can’t wait, you can buy them online.
