The dairy-free ice-cream market is estimated to reach a marketplace value of $1 billion by 2027, and with major brands like Häagen-Dazs and Ben & Jerry’s releasing their own vegan offerings, Aldi are keen to get a scoop of the action with the release of two delicious new flavours.
The new vegan ice-cream range consists of a light and refreshing coconut cream ice-cream, as well as a deliciously rich and smooth chocolate version.

Vegan and gluten-free
As the ice-creams are made from coconut cream they are officially both vegan and dairy-free (and are clearly marked as such on the tub). And as added bonus they’re also gluten free too!

The best thing about the new range is certainly the price! Whilst leading ice cream brand Ben and Jerry’s are selling their dairy free tubs for £5.50, these Aldi gems are on sale at £1.99 for 480ml making you a whopping £3.51 saving per tub.
