Great news vegans and lactose intolerants – Ben & Jerry’s is creating the answer to your ice cream prayers.
Today, in an exclusive Metro.co.uk interview, Ben & Jerry’s co-founder Jerry Greenfield said the team are working on a ‘delicious’ dairy-free ice cream.
He said Ben & Jerry’s would be using coconut milk or almond milk as the base for the new frozen sweet treat.
Jerry added he hoped it would mean a lot to all those who can’t eat dairy.
He said: ‘I think that’s a big thing for Ben & Jerry’s to be doing that.
‘In the US there are (dairy free) alternatives from smaller companies but Ben & Jerry’s will be first mainstream company that will do that and will also do it in a really delicious way.’
Dairy-free Ben & Jerry’s will be available in the US in spring next year (2016) and a little later in the UK.
