Amy’s Celebrates 25 Years with a Sweet Dream Come True! Meet Amy’s Hottest New Frozen Treat: Organic Vegan Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert!


Amy’s, the nation’s top-selling brand of natural and organic convenience foods now celebrating its 26th anniversary, is launching a brand new frozen food category, Amy’s Organic Non-Dairy Frozen Desserts. Amy’s has found a way to make a frozen, certified vegan dessert that has the luscious, velvety texture and flavor of super-premium dairy ice cream but none of the milk or eggs in its ingredients.
All four new flavors – dark Chocolate, creamy Vanilla with real vanilla bean, refreshing Mint Chocolate Chip and rich Mocha Chocolate Chip – are made with healthful, cholesterol-free organic coconut milk. Amy’s proprietary technique combined with high-quality, organic ingredients, keeps the coconut flavor in the background, resulting in a sumptuous frozen creation that will fool even traditional dairy ice cream fans.

“We are so excited to bring this vegan-certified treat to our customers that we can’t stop smiling,” says company co-founder Rachel Berliner (Amy’s mom). “We know our fans will be pleased with this playful indulgence we’ve made for them.”
Amy’s Non-Dairy Frozen Desserts (SRP: $6.99/pint) will be ready for retail purchase just in time for the warmest days of summer and early fall. Made with organic coconut milk and sweetened with agave syrup, the new desserts are vegan certified, organic, non-GMO, non-dairy, gluten free, and Kosher Pareve. The new line is made with the same care, quality and love for which Amy’s foods are known.

We received samples to try and I am so happy with these frozen desserts! My favorite is the Mocha Chocolate Chip and this really is a Must-have this Summer and Labor Day weekend!  My son even agreed that it tastes like ice cream and these will not last long in our house!

What inspired Amy’s to make a non-dairy frozen dessert? Amy’s cousin Anna tried an extraordinary non-dairy frozen dessert at a vegan restaurant called Plant in North Carolina. Anna’s husband, a conventional ice cream fan, couldn’t believe the dessert was non-dairy. The two were so blown away by the recipe that they enlisted Amy’s to bring this amazing dessert discovery to a wider audience. Thanks to Plant, Amy’s now has four remarkable non-dairy desserts.
Amy’s non-dairy frozen dessert makes a great complement to Amy’s other frozen offerings. Try scooping this creamy new treat over Amy’s Organic Gluten Free Brownies or Amy’s Organic Apple Pie. Or sandwich it between slices of Amy’s Organic Gluten Free Non Dairy Chocolate Cake for the ultimate vegan frozen dessert sammie. Just for fun, try scooping it into cones at a party and see who you can fool into thinking it’s regular ice cream!
