Halo Top is still churning out pints, but they have discontinued their dairy-free line. See our Low Sugar Dairy Free Ice Cream Guide for other options.

Updated formula in 2020! In 2017, Halo Top revolutionized the dairy-free ice cream industry when they introduced the first line of low-calorie vegan frozen dessert. It included seven flavors with crave-able names, like Cinnamon Roll, Peanut Butter Cup, and Caramel Macchiato. These “no guilt” non-dairy pints were an instant hit, so they launched five more Halo Top dairy-free ice cream flavors in 2018.

Last year, Halo Top ascended to 16 dairy-free flavors, including seasonal pints. But sadly, this year they’ve discontinued several flavors. Nevertheless, they still offer seven core dairy-free varieties, and as of August 2020, the whole line has been reformulated! They now use fava bean protein and have made a few other little tweaks.

Halo Top Dairy-Free Frozen Dessert - vegan, soy-free and many gluten-free ice cream pint flavors that are low calorie, low sugar, and high protein.

Halo Top Dairy-Free Ice Cream is Churning Out a New Formula

All of the Halo Top Dairy-Free pints are still soy-free, vegan, and made with a coconut base. But unlike many coconut ice creams, these contain just 270 to 360 per full pint, and are relatively light and low sugar. So what is in Halo Top Dairy-Free Frozen Dessert? We’ve got all of the ingredient lists for the new formulas below. See the More Facts section at the end for pricing, availability, and additional information.

Kinda chalky flavour. Not horrible but not good. I added some salt to it to balance out the weird sweetness. Tastes a bit like salted caramel after adding salt

Purchased Halo’s Banana Cream Pie. It was awful. Nothing about it resembled anything close to a frozen dessert! Vegan or not!

I impulse bough the Chocolate flavor because it was on sale. I was prepared for a let down because I have bought dairy free/low cal ice cream in past and have been very disappointed. I found it to be very creamy, rich Chocolate taste and did not upset my stomach. I added marshmallows, coconut shavings because I prefer Ice cream with chunks.

This was my first time having ice cream in half a year after having to go plant based. It did not disappoint. It was creamy and makes an excellent banana split would rate a 9/10

This is great dairy free frozen dessert. I kicked my Type 2 diabetes to the curb. Changed my diet. No Dairy and sugar. This product has everything I can eat. Other Dairy free frozen desserts has way too much sugar plus Halo Top uses Stevia it is better for you than sugar.
