While we’re having all this beautiful weather I thought I’d pop on here and share some of my favourite dairy free ice creams from Ocado. I often shop with Ocado because they have such a good range of dairy free options, especially when it comes to ice cream.
There are many more excellent dairy free ice creams on the site but these are just 4 of my favourites. They’re all vegan friendly too.
As always, please double check ingredients before buying.
We’re a big fan of the Vegan Magnums in our house. They’re available in Original and Almond. We like both but often pick the Almond box. They’re currently 2 boxes for £4 which is a really good deal.
I think these are just like regular Magnums. The chocolate has the classic Magnum crack when you bite into it and the ice cream is creamy and rich.

The Yorica Double Chocolate Cookie goes down very easily and is just like dairy ice cream, if not better.
It’s a rich and creamy chocolate ice cream with a subtle hint of coconut. It could do with some chunkier cookie pieces in but we still love it.
This ice cream is free from all 14 major allergens.

I know I say this each time I try a new #dairyfree ice cream but honestly, this has to be a new favourite! It’s by the fab folk @valsoia_es and I found it on @ocadouk (they have the best range of dairy free ice cream). I’ll be writing a full review but basically, this has a lovely flavour of tiramisu and is rich but not sickly. Perfect for coffee lovers 👌
Every Valsoia product I try I love but the Tiramisu Gelato is one of my favourites.
It’s a rich chocolate ice cream with a lovely flavour of coffee. It has a generous chocolate sauce swirled throughout and a dusting of cocoa on top.
The only downside is that the tub is a little on the small side.

The Ben & Jerry’s dairy free ice creams are fantastic. One of my favourites is Peanut Butter & Cookies.
It’s a creamy and luxurious ice cream filled with chunks of cookies and swirls of peanut butter. It’s just the right balance of sweet and salty.
