Vegan, not into dairy, or simply looking for ice cream with a nuttier taste and silkier mouthfeel than other versions? Superscoops—available via the store ODD Food and Beverages—makes frozen scoops that are smooth, velvety… and coincidentally dairy-free! In place of the usual milk or cream is coconut milk, along with unrefined coconut sweeteners, real fruit, and local chocolate where applicable. The Vanilla Caramel Pecan (P135/mini cup, P395/pint) is a no-fail with how it pairs real vanilla with caramel for depth plus bits of pecans for crunch, while the Strawberries & Cream (P115/mini cup, P365/pint) has a great balance of creaminess and tartness.

A fairly new kid on the block that’s well worth paying attention to, Tomoni peddles soft-serve—regular ice cream’s lighter, whippier cousin—in pints, and the flavors are to-die-for! The Vanilla Bean Cream (P380) highlights the taste of milk, heightened just a touch with the distinct sweet-woody note of Madagascar vanilla; you can also go for the Kyoto Matcha (P420) that’s rightfully earthy thanks to its namesake ingredient, as well as the lush yet fruity Strawberry Shortcake (P420) with a strawberry soft-serve base, vanilla sponge cake, and housemade strawberry puree.

Another well-loved dairy-free purveyor, Alt Scoops crafts up ice cream using oat milk—and the resulting dessert is notably on the light side but no less dreamy in its own right. The Dark Chocolate (P375) is properly deep and dark, with a cacao-forward profile thanks to their use of Auro chocolate. We’re also fans of the Bananas Foster (P400) with a banana base infused with rum; and the Cappuccino Crunch (P400) with Italian Arabica espresso in the base plus cacao nibs coated in Auro 64% couverture chocolate.
