It’s been a few years in discussions, but the founders of Fronen finally decided to shift from a banana-based nice cream to a rich and pure coconut cream base. Their goal has always been to create a dairy-free ice cream line that’s easy on the stomach and made with pure natural ingredients. The reformulation stays true to this mission, but brings more attention to the flavors and consistency.

Every flavor of Frönen still features 7 ingredients or less, with no additives, sugar alcohols, or other funny business. It boasts a homemade vibe, with natural sweetness from honey or coconut sugar. And it’s sold in five classic, top-selling flavors.

2022 Fronen Product & Formula Changes
Fronen ditched the banana, letting coconut cream take center stage as their ice cream base. This did increase the calories, fat, and saturated fat in each serving. But, it helps to create a creamier, less fruity product, closer to traditional ice cream. They also discontinued their Banana Coconut, Cinnamon, and Peanut Butter Fudge flavors. All of the information above has been updated for the new formula.
Additional Allergen Notes*
According to the company, all of their products are manufactured on lines that process dairy and other tree nuts (besides coconut). Before and after each production run, the machinery is cleaned and then tested to ensure there is no allergen residue on it. After their ice cream is manufactured, it is also tested for allergens to ensure there is no cross contamination. That being said, they cannot guarantee there are no allergen particles in the air in the facility. If you are severely allergic, they recommend not eating their ice cream to be safe.

The Peanut Butter is AMAZING!!!
Oh my goodness, I have never tasted anything so fabulous in my life. This flavor is so creamy and indulgent. Just WOW. I tried it at Whole Foods in Indiana last week. I want to try the chocolate next. I plan to mix the two together. Even my daughter who refuses to eat dairy free products absolutely adored it. Thank you Fronen for this amazing product.
amazing product - go buy now!!!!!!
I have always loved ice cream, its a classic and delicious dessert. However, dairy can upset my stomach at times and it is also very high calorie. I originally started buying Halo Top ice cream and don’t get me wrong it tasted fine and was low calorie, but I had one big issue with it: chemicals. The ingredients in halo top are not appealing, nor are the ingredients in most low-calorie ice creams. But then, I found Fronen. Fronen doesn’t taste like normal ice cream don’t get me wrong, but it sure does taste delicious. I honestly love it. And not only is it dairy free and low calorie, it is natural too, so it makes me feel a lot better about the things I am putting in my body. You should definitely go buy yourself some fronen ice cream now. I highly suggest the chocolate flavor (its my favorite), but you can’t go wrong.

Oh my gosh take my money this is the best ice cream for people that want healthier choices or need allergen friendly dessert!!! My family is loving it! We will be long-time customers.
I bought the banana coconut. Wasn’t my first choice but it was the only flavor the store had at the time – they had sold out of the other flavors quickly. I was very pleasantly surprised how much I liked it. Great flavor. Let it out on thr counter for about 10 minutes before eating – gives it an awesome creamy texture. Can’t wait to try the other flavors.
So happy I discovered Fronen!
Bought the chocolate, strawberry & banana coconut, and am so impressed with all of them! Love the chocolate! So glad you created Fronen!
I love it
Bought the vanilla. It’s really good! Not as sweet as other non-dairy ice creams but I don’t mind because I love that there’s no cane sugar and other garbage in it. I’m going to try all the other flavors! The ingredients are food and it’s low enough in calories that I can eat it & not feel bad about it.
