Gluten Free & Dairy Free Ice Cream Brands

Gluten Free & Dairy Free Ice Cream Brands

I’m one of the many people with celiac disease that can’t digest dairy products. If that’s also you, or maybe you’re vegan and avoiding gluten, this list is for you!

What you’ll find below: ice creams that are both gluten free and dairy free and can be easily found in US grocery stores. We’ll mark if they’re certified gluten free, vegan (as opposed to dairy free), kosher or other allergen-free. While we’re specifically focusing on packaged ice cream sold in pints or bars here, some of the options may also have scoop shops.

An important note if you’re new to dairy free ice cream: take it out of the freezer 15-20 minutes before you plan to eat it! Vegan ice cream tends to be more solid and requires a bit more melting time. It vastly improves the experience.

The cold brew coffee sorbetto is my personal favorite!

Jeni’s is not certified gluten free, and they also manufacture products with wheat, milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, and soy in their facilities. But they follow best practices to avoid cross-contamination between flavors, and many celiacs with sensitivity to cross-contamination have reported they eat Jeni’s without any problem. Their banana cream pudding flavor contains oats that do not confirm if they’re gf certified. Use your best judgement!

The cold brew with coconut cream is really good.

McConnell’s vegan ice creams are made with an oat milk base and are labeled gluten free, but they do not provide information about how they source their oats.
