In a recent newsletter, Vermont-based Ben & Jerry’s ice cream announced that its non-dairy ice cream will be made with almond milk. Almond milk beat out other non-dairy milks such as soy and cashew because it will serve as a “blank canvas” for the 100 percent vegan ice cream. The company also notes that a portion of its almonds will be Fair Trade-sourced. “Here at Ben & Jerry’s, we’ve been lovers of almonds for a long time,” the company said. “And now, almonds have once again stolen our hearts and promised nothing but euphoria.” Ben & Jerry’s announced plans to make non-dairy ice cream in June but have yet to release the intended flavor(s).
