    Ben & Jerry’s updates non-dairy recipes with oat-based formula

    Ben & Jerry’s non-dairy

    Ben & Jerry’s is revamping its non-dairy sweets with a new oat-based formula.

    All existing non-diary flavors from the brand will switch to the new and improved base by spring 2024, and the transition is kicking off with the chocolate chip cookie dough and chocolate fudge brownie flavors.

    “With this new recipe, Ben & Jerry's fans can expect more: more flavor, more creamy texture and more dessert euphoria with the same signature chunks and swirls. The oat recipe is so good, it’s even loved by our most discerning dairy fans who are used to eating ice cream,” said Ben & Jerry’s Flavor Guru Colleen Rossell. 

    The oat base will allow for a smoother texture, and reduce nut allergens, making the line more inclusive for those with diet sensitivities, the company said.

    Consumers can find the new non-dairy pints shipping now and at participating scoop shops and grocery stores for a suggested retail price that ranges from $5.99 to $6.49.
