SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) – Raise your spoons: Ben & Jerry’s now has non-dairy ice cream.

The Vermont ice cream maker has created four flavors using a certified vegan almond milk base. Available are the classic Chunky Monkey and Chocolate Fudge Brownie flavors, plus a couple of new ones: Coffee Caramel Fudge and P.B. and Cookies. The P.B. and Cookies variety is a vanilla non-dairy frozen dessert with chocolate sandwich cookies and crunchy peanut butter swirls.

The company has been getting requests for years to make non-dairy ice cream. Ben & Jerry’s Kirsten Schimoler says creating the lineup with a non-dairy base composition that meets consumer expectations was quite a challenge. But, she says, “We nailed it.”

The flavors are available in pints.
