When I think of special diet companies that do it right, O’My Dairy-Free Gelato is one of the first to come to mind. Their rich, flavorful vegan ice cream is made with just 5 to 8 ingredients. It’s close to homemade, but perfectly whipped for a professional finish. Ice cream scoops glide with ease – straight from the freezer!
O’My Dairy-Free Gelato initially launched a little over a year ago with six flavors. Later in the year, they launched a seventh flavor, Strawberry, and now they are releasing a party-ready flavor, Cake Batter. Lucky for you, we have full details on each variety.
O’My Dairy-Free Gelato Celebrates 8 Pint Flavors with New Cake Batter
Please note that the nutrition facts for the new Cake Batter flavor are for a 2/3 cup serving. The other flavors are for a smaller 1/2 cup serving. I’m including some of our notes with each flavor, and my own review in the ratings section for the flavors that we’ve sampled. If you’ve bought and tried it, don’t forget to leave your rating and review below. It helps others!
This simple recipe is highlighted by fair-trade certified, organic cocoa powder. They also add a touch of vanilla to help keep the coconut base from overpowering the flavor.

Something about mint and coconut just works together. And it helps that this ice cream is spiked with fair-trade certified, organic, dairy-free chocolate pieces.
Ingredients: coconut cream, water, cane sugar, cocoa beans, mint extract, cocoa butter, carob gum, vanilla beans.*

This creamsicle-inspired flavor is smartly bolstered with both orange juice and pure orange extract. I’ve learned from making ice cream at home that the orange extract is almost a must for the right blend. And they seriously nailed it with this delicious ice cream! It’s my personal favorite from the O’My collection.

Nutrition (per 1/2 cup serving): 160 calories, 11g fat, 17g carbs, 1g fiber, 16g sugars, 1g protein.*
This sweet flavor is definitely worthy of a celebration. It’s a newer formula that isn’t quite as soft, rich, and creamy as their other flavors, but has a more playful side.
Ingredients: organic coconut cream, water, cane sugar, vegetable gums (acacia, tara, guar), natural flavor.*

Root Beer Float (Discontinuing)
A root beer flavor without caramel color! We wish it was also infused with some real root beer, but beggars can’t be choosers.
Ingredients: coconut cream, water, cane sugar, natural root beer flavor, carob gum.*

Amazing flavor, wonderfully soft and creamy
I finally had the chance to taste a few more flavors, so I’m updating my review. I LOVE the Orange Cream! It is truly a pure, decadent creamsicle flavor. The Mint Chip is a close second – it’s equally soft and creamy, but with the perfect cool mint flavor. I only wish the chips were grated instead – they’re a touch bittersweet. I had the chance to preview the Cake Batter flavor and it is pleasantly sweet and rich, but not quite as creamy as the others. When my aunt was visiting, we bought the Root Beer Float. It’s got a very subtle taste at first, but then you get a surge of root beer flavor that’s quite tasty, followed by a mellow vanilla. My aunt (who eats regular ice cream) said it was lighter, like a sherbet in consistency. But she loved it, and I really enjoyed it too.
Such a disappointment. It’s possibly the worst non-dairy ice cream I’ve ever had. It’s frozen ice milk. Yuck. I got chocolate and mint chip. Both are horrible.
This is vegan ice milk
The ice crystals were there at the top of the package as soon as I pulled back the protective cover. It served as a warning that I was about to be severely disappointed. This is ice milk. It is not as creamy as regular vegan/dairy-free ice creams yet labels itself as gelato. As I have had true dairy gelato, I’m wondering if anyone in the research department remembers what gelato tastes like or have they ever had any.
The best I’ve tried, and i think I’ve tried them all! Now if they would only make a butter pecan…
Very good but still searching
I have been on the hunt for a non-dairy alternative for Coffee Chip. While this is tasty, creamy and has the requisite dark chocolate chunks I like, it has a little too much coconut flavor and too light of a coffee flavor for me. It is passable, but still searching for one that has a robust, intense coffee flavor, with chocolate chunks! (Think Trader Joe’s Coffee Bean Blast with dark chocolate chunks added! – that in a non-dairy formulation would be HEAVEN.
Remember "ice milk? .... yea.... I tried to forget it, too.
Though the coffee chip flavor is good, the consistency is very icy. I find it quite ironic that O’My labels itself “gelato” and it isn’t even nearly as creamy as other vegan ice creams. As I scooped it, it actually flaked into my bowl. The second ingredient in every flavor is WATER. Who makes gelato with water?
Response from Go Dairy Free
It sounds like the coffee is icier than most of their flavors! I know the water ingredient can be confusing, but whole milk (used as a base for gelato) is actually 87% water. If companies broke the milk down, the first ingredient on most ice creams and gelatos would be water. Water is what makes all foods fluid (including milk and cream) and is needed to blend with the base (coconut in this case) to make a churnable liquid. I hope that helps to explain!
Did I get a dud?
I got the Coffee Chip and the flavor was good but the texture was neither creamy nor soft. It was like it was made with water. It was like a coffee Italian ice.
Response from Go Dairy Free
We haven’t tried the Coffee Chip, so I can’t say for sure on that flavor. But the ones we have bought – including the Mint Chip and Orange flavors – we definitely on the creamy side. The Mint Chip in particular was quite creamy. The Cake Batter was a little more sweet than creamy.
Healthy and delicious!
It tastes so good, and I feel good after I eat it. I can finally enjoy ice cream again!
Finally an ice cream product that is all natural and free from dairy, and egg, and gluten and still tastes great and worth the money you pay for it!! So happy!!! I can love ice cream again!
Love this ice cream!
Best dairy free ice cream ever! Coffee flavor is my favorite.
