Inside The Ben & Jerry’s Test Kitchen

Until now, the Flavour Gurus have churned up Non-Dairy ice cream flavours like Phish Food and Netflix & Chilll’d using an almond base. But we love tinkering in the test kitchen and trying to pack even more “Wow” into every bite. So instead of putting our spoons away for good, we kept looking for a Non-Dairy recipe that would deliver an even smoother and richer dessert experience.

After years of testing and tasting and churning and learning, the Flavour Gurus discovered our best Non-Dairy ice cream recipe yet: a rich oat base. With oats, they found a recipe formula that makes a creamy base that’s perfect for all our flavours. The oat-based recipe makes for a smoother, more indulgent texture, allowing flavours like chocolate, caramel, mint, and vanilla to shine. And there’s an added bonus, too: The oat-based recipe reduces nut allergens, making every Non-Dairy ice cream flavour more inclusive for those with dietary sensitivities.

“With this new recipe, Ben & Jerry’s fans can expect more: more flavour, smoother texture, and more dessert euphoria with the same signature chunks and swirls. This new recipe is so good, it’s even loved by our most discerning dairy fans who are used to eating [dairy-based] ice cream,” said Flavour Guru Colleen Rossell.
