There's good news for ice cream lovers who are vegans and those who can't eat dairy products.
Ben & Jerry's has announced the launch of its first line of non-dairy ice cream.
So far, there are non-dairy versions of Chunky Monkey and Chocolate Fudge Brownie, plus the newly-created Coffee Caramel Fudge and P.B & Cookies.

Ben & Jerry's promises the four flavors are as decadent as the ones containing dairy.
"We monkeyed around with our classic Chunky Monkey and we’re sure you’ll go ape for this non-dairy flavor!" the company wrote. "It’s still the chocolatey-chunkiest concoction-gone-bananas ever."
Expected in grocery stores in the next few weeks, the Vermont-based company says the ice cream is certified vegan and made with almond milk.
"Some of you are committed to a vegan lifestyle, while others can't or would rather not eat dairy. And all of you are missing the indulgent frozen delights you once enjoyed," Ben & Jerry's said on its website. We knew that with some hard work and experimentation we could deliver the taste and creamy texture you've been craving. So we did."
