Every year, July marks National Ice Cream Month, and this year, we thought we would share our insight into new trends, our latest flavour creations, serving ideas and much more in a short series of posts.
To kick things off, we’re looking at how healthy ice cream options are becoming a must have option on many menus. Whether they’re following vegan, gluten-free or low-calorie diets, or are simply making more environmentally-conscious food choices, it’s a trend that’s shows no sign of stopping!
As these specialist diets continue to rise, there has never been a better time to tap into these health trends and make sure that your ice cream offering caters to a range of dietary requirements. What better way to add some free-from variety to your dessert menu than with our delectable range of vegan ice cream and sorbet? Here’s a run-down of a few of our favourites:
This dairy-free delight will truly satisfy any chocolate craving thanks to its wonderfully rich flavour and smooth texture. The best thing is, it provides all the self-indulgence of dark chocolate ice cream, but in a refreshingly light, dairy-free and low-fat format!
Serving suggestion: Say goodbye to the ice cream sandwich and hello to the sorbet sandwich! Pile a giant scoop of Chocolate sorbet between two homemade vegan cookies. To finish, roll the edges in dark chocolate chips for a mouth-watering dessert for all ages.
Vegan Salted Caramel Ice Cream:
Just because the dairy has been ditched, doesn’t mean the ice cream should taste any less creamy! Free from dairy, gluten and egg, our vegan Salted Caramel ice cream delivers an indulgent, smooth texture with rich notes of caramel and a hint of salt for a perfectly balanced flavour that everyone can enjoy, vegan or not!
Serving suggestion: Serve a generous scoop of Salted Caramel ice cream on top of a vegan chocolate brownie fresh out of the oven. Drizzle with sugar-free caramel syrup for the ultimate indulgent plant-based dessert.
Gin & Pink Grapefruit Sorbet:
For something light, fruity, but still a bit naughty, our Gin and Pink Grapefruit sorbet is a real crowd pleaser. Featuring the delicate botanicals of Twisted Nose Gin from Winchester cut with the sharpness of pink grapefruit, this boozy yet refreshing after-dinner treat is sure to satisfy even the most discerning of palates.
Serving suggestion: Let the sorbet do the talking and simply serve in a Martini glass garnished with fresh summer berries and candied grapefruit peel.
