Tofutti Frozen Dessert is The Original Dairy-Free Ice Cream

10

Before oat milk ice cream, before almond milk ice cream, before coconut milk ice cream, there was Tofutti. You don’t hear about this brand much anymore, because there are so many other dairy-free ice creams on the market. But Tofutti frozen dessert has a loyal following, and for good reason – it’s pretty tasty. My former cheese- and cream-loving husband will even tell you it’s one of the best on the market.

Tofutti Frozen Dessert is The Original Dairy-Free Ice Cream

My husband and I spotted Tofutti on for $2.50 one evening, many years ago, and couldn’t resist picking up a pint to try. We honestly thought it was too cheap to be great, but we were pleasantly surprised. In fact, it was the first dairy-free ice cream that my husband truly enjoyed and wanted to go back to get more. And back we went, to get another vanilla pint .. and another .. and another.

The vanilla Tofutti frozen dessert is amazingly creamy, perfectly sweet, and somehow just hits that “mmm” spot. I think it’s the addition of cocoa butter that makes it special. Though I wouldn’t call it an identical swap for ice cream, it has its own charms and still fulfills those cool and creamy cravings. It was delicious atop apple crisp, with brownies, and simply drizzled with homemade dairy-free chocolate magical shell.

I love this ice cream, but I can’t find it anywhere anymore.

Response from Go Dairy Free

That’s so frustrating! I checked with the company, and it is still out there. It tends to be sold more at natural food stores now (including independents). They have a store locator on their website.

  1. To my surprise, the only non dairy “dessert” at Winn Dixie while passing by a red neck county. Wanted some treat for the road and paid full price. I used to spend 8 dollar fast food lunch, not anymore. So 6 dollars for a pint of healthy non garbage delight is a no brainer.

    Took a spoonful, taste buds kick in and I had to scan each and every corner of the packaging for milk or lactose ingredients. I could not believe this ice cream was 100% vegan. The flavor, texture is there.

    Would have liked another flavor, but only one available was Vanilla.

    I would buy this ice cream again and do recommend it.

  2. Tofutti vanilla ice cream is, by far, the best I’ve tasted. It’s my go to if we are in need of ice cream.

  3. I have tried this and it is quite good. It is so good in fact tat aanyone who I have served it to has had n idea that they werent eating regular ice cream!

  4. I would like to get tofutti’s address & tel NO. so I can get local grocery store to order their products

  5. I want to buy almond bark tofutti online. Please tell me where to go. Almond bark is not in any store near me. Other flavors are, but not almond bark C. teas 1 978-2977229
