These days, it's not hard to find a delicious plant-based ice cream: From the grocery store's freezer aisle to nationwide chains, the options are seemingly limitless. We're pleased to say that Baskin-Robbins contributes to the variety of vegan ice creams available on the market.

In 2019, the brand began its foray into creamy vegan offerings (not just sorbet), and it hasn't slowed down since. Baskin offers oat milk-based flavors as well as those that rely on almond butter and coconut oil for creaminess. We have a feeling you'll want to try them all.

Top Pick: Non-Dairy Strawberry Streusel

We're really jazzed by Baskin-Robbins' newest oat milk offerings. The Non-Dairy Strawberry Streusel stands out because, well, it tastes incredible.

This creamy sweet is packed with pieces of cinnamon granola and crumbly streusel swirled together with a strawberry ribbon in a creamy oat milk base. It's a riff on the brand's original Very Berry Strawberry ice cream flavor, but even better since it's vegan.

Vegan Ice Cream

Baskin-Robbins is upping its collection of non-dairy ice cream flavors. You should know that it's unlikely every store will carry every vegan flavor, so if a certain flavor is really tickling your fancy, you may want to call ahead to check to see if your local scoop shop has it in stock.

  • Chocolate Extreme
  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
  • Coffee Caramel Chunk
  • Non-Dairy Strawberry Streusel

Treehugger Tip

You don't have to forgo the cone at Baskin-Robbins to enjoy a 100% vegan treat. Just be sure to skip the waffle options (both the cone and the bowl) and choose the cake cone instead. You'll get all of the crunch with none of the cruelty.

Vegan Ices and Sorbets

Keep in mind that sorbet is not always vegan, and it's important to double-check labels and ask a store employee if needed. Fortunately, if you prefer a dessert that's a bit less creamy, you may be enticed by these icy vegan offerings at Baskin-Robbins.

  • Daiquiri Ice
  • Raspberry Sorbet
  • Watermelon Swirl Sorbet
  • Miami Vice Sorbet
  • Horchata Ice

Vegan Ice Cream Cones

Because the sugar cone contains honey and the waffle cone contains eggs and dairy, the only vegan cone available at Baskin-Robbins is its cake cone.

Vegan Drinks

While Baskin-Robbins comes up short on vegan milkshakes, you still have options if you want to slurp something cool. The menu offers a few beverages that are both vegan and refreshing.

  • Mangonada
  • Tropical Fruit Blast
  • Strawberry Citrus Fruit Blast
  • Freeze or a Float (Order with either vegan ice or vegan ice cream, and double-check with your server that they won't be adding any milk.)

Vegan Toppings

Baskin-Robbins offers many colorful vegan toppings to choose from. Combine a couple or stick with the classic sprinkles.

  • Chopped Almonds
  • Maraschino Cherries
  • Oreo Cookie Crumbles
  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Sauce
  • Chocolate Syrup (Don't confuse this with Baskin-Robbins' chocolate fudge, which isn't vegan.)
  • Rainbow Sprinkles
  • Chocolate Sprinkles
