Heaven Has Answered My Prayers!
Ben & Jerry’s have announced that due to a number of demands/pleads from Vegans, they will be launching dairy free ice cream next year! Apparently they have been working on this for a while and are committed to getting the flavors just right. Good things come to those who wait!
This makes me happy for a number of reasons. Firstly, huge brands like Ben and Jerry’s are realizing how popular veganism is just now, secondly this is great news for both animals and the plant and thirdly, well it means Vegan’s can enjoy Ben & Jerry’s! The popular ice cream giant have confirmed there will be no animal products at all in this new dairy line – no honey, no dairy and no eggs = no cruelty.
Ben & Jerry’s have always been pretty big on environmental issues supporting fair trade and world peace – so it was only a matter of time before a Vegan product line was launched. The petition with over 30,000 signatures or change.org probably helped too.
There is no news on the flavors yet, but the main ingredient will be almond milk (no surprises there), but I don’t think they will disappoint.
It is so great that more and more food giants like Ben & Jerry’s are taking a step in the dairy free direction. Not only will their Vegan Ice Cream be guilt free because of the tiny fat content in almond milk – you can eat this ice cream knowing that no animals and the environment won’t be harmed. 🙂
The dairy free line will be launched in the U.S initially, hopefully it won’t be too long before it reaches the rest of the world. Anyway, if you can’t wait till then why not try my Vegan Cacao & Mint Ice Cream Recipe – it’s so good.
This news and the fact I have booked my flights home for Christmas has made this a great week – happy Thursday indeed! Jess x
