The new recipe – with lower calories than traditional ice cream – will be in all seven existing dairy-free flavors: Birthday Cake, Candy Bar, Chocolate, Chocolate Almond Crunch, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Peanut Butter Cup, and Sea Salt Caramel.
Halo Top's Dairy-Free series (SRP: $5.49/pint) starts with a coconut milk base and now contains fava bean protein, which the company said provides a soft texture and creamy taste.
"As a leader in the better-for-you category, Halo Top is always looking for new ways to innovate and bring forward quality products our consumers will love," said Shilpa Gadhok, senior brand manager, Halo Top.
"With our Dairy-Free line, we replaced brown rice protein with fava bean protein for a creamier texture that's packed with flavor. Plant-based demand is higher than ever, and we want to provide our fans with an offering they feel great about eating — so they don't have to choose between pursuing a plant-based lifestyle and enjoying dessert."
Each Vegan Action-certified pint contains 280-360 calories and 10-20 grams of protein per serving.
The new dairy-Free pints start rolling out in September with Birthday Cake, Peanut Butter Cup, and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough flavors. The rest of the revamped dairy-free line (Candy Bar, Chocolate, Chocolate Almond Crunch, and Sea Salt Caramel) will be on shelves in October.
