Arctic Zero Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert Launches in Nine Plant-Based Flavors

4

For years I’ve been frustrated by Arctic Zero. Their core line is lactose-free, but not dairy-free. Yet it always sits right in the middle of the dairy-free ice cream section in stores. And several “journalist” websites incorrectly include it on their dairy-free round-ups. But they’ve finally earned the right to grace those non-dairy collections. New Arctic Zero Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert is a full line of plant-based ice creams that stay true to their low-sugar, low calorie promise. And it’s actually available to order on Amazon!

Arctic Zero Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert (New!) - All the Details (Ingredients, Availability & More) on this Plant-Based, Low-Calorie, Low-Sugar, Low-Fat Ice Cream

 

Arctic Zero is Still Low Calorie and Pint-Worthy, But Now Non-Dairy

The non-dairy flavors are sweetened with organic cane sugar and monk fruit, and contain no sugar alcohols or artificial sweeteners. If you decide to down the whole pint, it will only knock you back somewhere between 160 to 320 calories. A single serving contains just 70 to 90 calories and 1.5 grams of fat or less. And you can choose between nine flavors.

The ice creams in the Arctic Zero Non-Dairy range are made with a base of faba bean protein instead of milk and cream. And I was told that these are actually replacing their lactose free line!

… our lactose-free product line will be transitioning to our non-dairy product line, and we will no longer be producing lactose-free pints or bars. Grocery stores that currently carry our lactose-free product line will be transitioning to our non-dairy product line when the lactose free pints are out of stock, so keep an eye out for them! Eventually you will no longer see our old packaging at stores.

I love the Arctic zero vegan ice cream. It’s tasty, it’s guilt-free and everybody should have it. Purely chocolate is my favorite and I wish more stores Would stock it because Amazon is very expensive

Better than halo-top's non dairy

This is the first non dairy mint ice cream that tastes like mint. I also tried the cookie shake and that was good , too. Halo top’s non dairy tastes like coconut ice. Every flavor is just coconut ice. Maybe someday they will do something with almond milk instead of coconut, but until then I’m sticking with arctic zero. I like it and it’s great how low calorie it is!

Better than Halo Top and Wink. This absolutely satisfies. Microwaving for 30 seconds is a must to create smooth creamy texture

Only certain flavors

4.0 rating

Being vegan I was excited that these ice creams went dairy free, I tried the cake batter and caramel flavor and when slightly melted they were delicious. I once though did try the cookie dough and the actual dough tasted chalky and unappetizing. Only particular flavors are good and I appreciate that a lot of them are 160 cal or less

Change in Formula

1.0 rating
May 27, 2019

I used to have a pint every day. Now that the formula has changed, there is less protein, more calories, and less of a variety of flavors. I miss Orange Dream and Poppin Pomegranate the most. Cappuccino was good too. I was willing to pay more because of the 150 calories. If I wanted more calories and less protein- I may as well eat regular ice cream for a fraction of the cost- Arctic Zero price went up even more if you order online. They have actually instead of improving it and updating the packaging- they have discontinued the Arctic Zero that their loyal customers fell in love with. This is an entirely new product. More like trying to copy off of Halo Top. Shame.

I think I must have eaten through all the inventory at publix and wallmart in south Florida. No one seems to carry it any more for the last 2 months or so. Only halo top. What gives? I made a request at my local publix but still nothing.

Response from Go Dairy Free

I believe Arctic Zero is transitioning completely to dairy-free, so their inventory might have a lag in it. This happens sometimes with product changes.

    This ice cream is disgusting, it wasn’t creamy at all just watery slush, not satisfied with this product whatsoever.

  2. OMG just tried hint of mint and it was fantastic! I can’t wait to try all of your non dairy flavors
