We have to admit that a small part of us got a little excited when we saw the news that Ben and Jerry are about to launch a range of ice cream without dairy products. But the rumor was quickly crushed when we looked at the ingredient lists.
While the favorite flavors like Chunky Monkey and Chocolate Fudge Brownie have been transformed into vegan versions, they are definitely not healthy. Just take a look at one of the flavors …
Chunky Monkey Ingredients:
Almond milk (water, almonds), liquid sugar (sugar, water), coconut oil, sugar, nuts, bananas, corn syrup solids, dried cane syrup, cocoa, pea protein, sunflower lecithin, milk concentrate lemon juice, soy lecithin, vanilla extract, Guar Gum, Natural Flavor (Coco), Locust Bean Gum.
Can anyone say "sugar"? Ben and Jerry can and they say it 4 different times! – Liquid sugar, sugar, corn syrup solids, dry cane syrup. All the sugar
That explains the 6 1/2 teaspoons (26 g) of sugar per 1/2 cup served! The ice cream is practically milk of almonds and sugar joined by several gums and additives with some coverings such as nuts and bananas in good measure.
We will not recommend this to anyone in the short term.
If you are looking for a healthier alternative to regular ice cream loaded with sugar (vegan or not), try this:
Vegan cookies and cream ice cream Ice cream of vegan nuts with "butter" Berry Ice Cream with Chocolate Sauce
Would you try Ben and Jerry's new dairy-free ice cream?
