The new line of frozen vegan desserts, which are part of the stores ‘Deliciously Free From’ range, is made from a coconut oil base and comes in three classic flavours: Strawberry, Chocolate, and Vanilla.

The UK supermarket chain made headlines in 2016 when it released a large vegan cheese range in stores after learning that vegan shoppers most longed-for dishes were pizza, cheese boards, cheesecake and lasagne.

Large brands such as Ben & Jerry’s, Häagen-Dazs and Cornetto have also been branching out into offering vegan options with their launch of their own ranges of dairy-free ice-creams and cones.

Sainsbury’s vegan “iced desserts” are free from wheat, gluten, and soy and are priced at £3.50 per 500ml tub.
