Yellofruit officially launched in April and has already been named one of the 10 most innovative products at SIAL Canada, an international food and beverage trade show. It’s a banana-based dairy-free ice cream that promises full flavor and a rich, creamy consistency.
Yellofruit Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert is Going Bananas in Canada
This product began when a Canadian couple started monkeying around with healthier dessert options for their family. Fittingly, the flavors have been named after their three kids.

What Others Are Saying ...
This **** is bananas. Literally. If you love bananas you’ll go ape over it.
Downside? It’s sooo sweet. It actually made me sick. I think they could have skipped the added sugar.
Instead of Ice Cream or Pudding
Lovely flavour and I liked the texture- felt like I was eating real food. Thanks for coming up with this product….a little treat that lets you indulge your sweet tooth, while having some protein & fibre at the same time…And no baby cows were deprived of their mom’s milk so we could enjoy!
Delicious vegan option!
I could eat this by the tub. It’s a creamy, flavourful alternative to traditional ice cream, offering a sweet treat without all the health concerns associated with mass commercial dairy farming.
Love the chocolate and the ingredients. Very delicious. Will be purchasing again
Absolutely satisfying and very enjoyable. I love the ingredients.. I have only tried the chocolate and it killed my craving. I will be purchasing again..
It’s satisfying and doesn’t effect me as negatively as a more traditional dessert. Very good idea. Love the whole food ingredients, especially the inclusion of pea protein to help balance out the amount of carbohydrates.
Like nothing on the market
I thought this was going to taste like Banana Ice Cream, but the Strawberry has a flavour unlike anything we’ve every bought before. It’s sort of like a smoothie, but the strawberries are a bit tart, but the whole thing is sweet. We didn’t try the chocolate, but the mango seemed like a smoother texture than the strawberry, but both were SOOOOOO good. This is way better than some of the cashew/coconut ice creams. We also liked that there weren’t gums and other junk in the ingredients
Love the Mango but my partner thinks the chocolate is best with strawberries.
Not as good as I had hoped
I purchased the chocolate version and realizing that this is made with bananas I understand this will seem obvious but I found it tasted overwhelmingly of banana. I also did not find the texture at all pleasing. It was not creamy as I had expected.
Great dairy free frozen treat!
My favourite is Straw followed closely by Choc!!!
