Let’s face it, it’s hard to say no to dessert. And more so when it comes to ice cream! The problem is that commercially-available ice creams tend to be sweeter and are made from dairy. However, if you happen to be lactose-intolerant or just health-conscious, that doesn’t mean you should give up these delicious treats altogether. With more health-conscious consumers these days, there has been an emergence of dairy-free and vegan ice cream options popping around the Klang Valley areas. That being said, here are 8 Places To Get Non-Dairy Ice Creams in Klang Valley.
1) Kind Kones
Hailed as Malaysia’s first vegan ice cream, Kind Kones prides itself in offering tasty treats minus all the usual commercial ingredients. And that means no dairy, egg, refined sugar, gluten and preservatives. Just 100% natural and fresh ingredients made fresh on a frequent basis. Some of their bestsellers include Black Forest, Pistachio Kulfi and Passionfruit Sorbet. You can visit their outlets at Bangsar Village, Plaza Damansara or Mid Valley or simply shop online at the comfort of your home.
Using coconut as the main ingredient for their handmade plant-based and dairy-free ice creams, Kelava sells their goods in paper containers. Among the flavours available include Salted Gula Melaka, Matcha and Strawberry Swirl. They also include seasonal flavours as well, namely Coconut Latte and Wild Berries. The latter contains a berry-licious mix of blackcurrants, blueberry, blackberries and raspberries. You can locate them at their partnering outlets from the website or place your order online if you live in the Klang Valley area.
An offshoot from its bigger brother Inside Scoop, Sweet Escape’s primary target is to promote less-sugar ice creams for the health-conscious consumers. They even go as far as using healthier sugar substitutes including stevia, organic unrefined sugar and agave syrup. While some of them (e.g. the cempedak-based “Champ-enak” and the matcha-based “Matcha Mana?”) contains milk-based ingredients, they also include dairy-free options as well. For instance, you might want to try their fruity flavours such as Soursop Opera and Skinny King, with the latter actually being a durian sorbet. You can locate Sweet Escape at 16G, Jalan Datuk Sulaiman in TTDI or place your order via GrabFood.
The brainchild of co-founders Nora Tan and Jonathan Tan, Heyday offers dairy-free ice creams that are made fresh with no preservatives, stabiliser and emulsifier. They sell their ice creams in pints, where you can enjoy delicious flavours like Lemony Orange Peel, Hazelnut Crunch and Raspberry. Currently, Heyday operates its store online with deliveries covered in Kuala Lumpur and selected Selangor areas such as Puchong, Subang Jaya, Petaling Jaya and Cheras.
100% natural fruits, and that’s the promise you will get upon purchasing their range of ice cream bars. Just like tasting the real fruits themselves, their ice creams contain no artificial flavouring, colouring and preservatives. Some of the flavours available include Snowy Soursop, Pinky Passion Fruit and Flaming Dragon Fruit. You can order their Frulato ice creams online at RM 3.50 per stick.
6) Loving Cafe
Located at Jalan 13/149L in Bandar Baru Sri Petaling, Loving Cafe serves all things vegan ranging from salads to soups and main courses. Not to forget their range of vegan ice creams, where all of them are made in-house using grade A cashew cream as one of the main ingredients. You can find flavours like Premium Green Tea, Pure Strawberry and Passion Fruit Mango. Open for both dine-in and delivery services, where you can either call/WhatsApp Chan (012-313 8221) or Candice (012-293 2630).
7) Warna Pops
True to its name, the Cyberjaya-based Warna Pops (literally means “colour pops”) specialises in all-natural popsicles (that is ice cream on a stick). Fruit lovers may want to try the likes of Watermelon, Mango and Tropical (a combination of mango & pineapple) — all of which are made from 100% natural fruits with no artificial colouring and preservatives. Online delivery is also available as well.
8) Pops Malaya
Pops Malaya means business when comes to offering fruity-based ice cream bars. Having been around since 2013, they insist on using only 100% natural fruits with organic cane sugar as sweeteners. You will find no trace of chemical add-ons like preservatives, artificial colouring and fillers. Among the fruity flavours available at Pop Malaya includes Passionfruit Pineapple, Strawberry, Mango Peach and Watermelon Lychee. You can choose to shop online or get them at selected supermarkets and petrol stations.
