You can find vegan ice cream in almost any health store, and in some grocery stores. The most popular kinds are made from soy milk, though Rice Dream is made from rice milk (you’d never guess from the name, right?). Sorbet is almost always vegan.
Some common brands of vegan ice cream include: Soy Dream, Rice Dream, Whole Soy (you must try the crème caramel flavor!), Soy Delicious (which is now being marketed as So Delicious in some flavors), and Tofutti. My personal favorites are the Whole Soy pints and the Soy Delicious Purely Decadent pints. The Soy Delicious Li’l Buddies ice cream sandwiches are also wonderful.
If you are lucky enough to live in the San Francisco Bay Area, you absolutely must make a visit to Maggie Mudd’s. They have about twenty flavors of amazing vegan ice cream. They’ll make you a sundae, a milkshake, whatever.
