Tara, Ice-Cream…But Make it Healthy

April 9, 2024

April 9, 2024

Living in a tropical country with temperatures that reach up to 40°C makes you crave for something sweet, cool and refreshing. And what better way to douse that summer heat off than eating vegan ice-cream? 

(But I can’t eat ice cream. It disrupts my ‘healthy’ lifestyle.)

Well, believe it or not, eating ice cream is also another act of self care for us.

According to the Institute of Psychiatry in London, one of the benefits of eating ice cream is the intake of amino acids that we call tryptophan — which increases serotonin production in the body. This leaves us feeling calm, satisfied and happy! Hence, giving us a better mood that leads to better productivity overall!

So, you don’t have to feel guilty by wanting to indulge yourself in sweet rewards every once in a while. But if you’re really keen on sticking to a dairy-free diet (but still having that sweet tooth), then here’s a solution for you: vegan ice cream.

Today, there are a lot of ice cream brands using milk alternatives without neglecting the quality of flavor—it’s as if you’re eating a regular ice cream! So, you can still enjoy a delectable scoop of ice cream without having to worry about compromising your ‘healthy’ lifestyle . 

We helped narrow down your options and present you a list of vegan-ice cream brands that you can try:

1. CocoLocco Vegan Ice Cream

Craving for something new to your taste buds? Look no further! For as low as 25 pesos, you can try out the first ever soft-serve Vegan Ice Cream in the Philippines. 

CocoLocco by Miguelitos offers flavors that are a fusion of Filipino delicacies like Nata de Coco, Ube, Pinipig, Mango, Buco, and many more. With its affordable price, you can treat yourself to their Vegan Ice Cream’s Coco Bilo flavor – it’s 100% vegan, dairy-free, and gluten-free! Plus, their packaging is also eco-friendly. You can experience a sweet, healthy treat while also helping the environment— it’s a win all in one!

Branches: SM City Paranaque, SM City Marikina, SM City Manila, Vista Mall Taguig

2. Superscoop

Super Scoops Dairy-Free is a product of The Superfood Grocer. While this brand has been in the market for a while now, their “international award-winning and proudly local” goodness is exactly what makes it such a trusted brand for vegan ice cream. Their products are made with 100% plant-based ingredients, with their alternative for dairy being a sweetener made from unrefined, low glycemic coconut sap.

Even better, not only are their products good for your health, but they are also good for the environment — they support Filipino coconut farmers and are compassionate to animals. 

You can order online through their official website or Lazada:

You may also choose to order directly from their Super HQ (Office) in New Manila, Quezon City. Call or text +63917 8747708 or +632 6315436 to place orders for pick up. 

Or you may also buy from their Partner Stores. See the list of partner stores carrying Super Scoops here.

3. Kurīmu
Kurīmu vegan ice cream

This Japanese-inspired shop offers a new experience by introducing a variety of classic and uniquely flavored ice cream. Their premium handcrafted ice cream is so drool-worthy that it’s hard to believe they offer flavors that are 100% plant-based. 

They offer two flavors of vegan ice cream: their Nama Chocolate — dark chocolate ganache in ice cream form, made with oat milk and infused with Yardstick Coffee’s Switch Blend; and you can also try their Tarochata, which has familiar notes of taro and toasted pinipig, and made possible with El Union’s signature horchata recipe. 

You can try their other irresistible ice cream flavors in the following branches: SM Aura, SM MOA, SM Megamall, Mitsukoshi mall, Uptown BGC, Robinsons Magnolia, Glorietta 4 

4. AltScoops

If you want to binge on ice-cream without having to worry about your calorie intake, you may want to try Alt Scoops. This ice cream is so good you won’t even realize it’s vegan! Every flavor is made with only the freshest and highest quality ingredients. And instead of the usual cow’s milk, they allow the wonders of oat milk to shine through — allowing each scoop to feel incredibly soft and rich in flavor. 

Besides offering ice cream in pints, they also released their new line of popsicles called Alt Pops. Each popsicle is generously coated in Auro chocolate and comes in three flavors: Oat Milk, Strawberry and Cappuccino Crunch.

You may order online through their website.

5. Ambassadors Ice Cream
Ambassadors Ice Cream

If you think that eating vegan ice cream limits your choice of flavors — well, Ambassador’s Ice Cream, may prove you wrong. In fact, they offer a variety of flavors that leaves you craving for more! 

You can try their best selling Speculoos Overload, Mango Biscoff, and Vanilla Mega Cookie. And, if you want to be adventurous, there are also Filipino-inspired flavors that are worth the try like Tsokolate Tablea (one of their bestsellers as well), Malagos Mudpie, and Pili Coffee (with activated charcoal).

You can order through their website, GrabFood, or Lazada.
