Røar makes delicious ice cream flavors based on water, vegetable oils (coconut, sunflower), rice syrup, and other organic ingredients like mango puree or hazelnut paste. There are currently three Røar ice cream flavors: Hemp Seed Chocolate Brownie, Coconut Mango Passion Fruit Oat Cookie, and Hazelnut Chocolate Cookie. Yum!
Apart from creating the tastiest ice cream flavors, Røar is on a mission to save endangered wild cats. Røar works in partnership with the Panthera organization which aims to increase the population of extinct tigers. This is also the answer for those who were wondering, “Why is there a huge tiger image on my plant-based ice cream tub?”
You might have already tried a bunch of amazing Oatly products including their legendary iKaffe oat drink. If not, find the nearest coffee shop that serves oat cappuccino on the Oatfinder map. Oatly’s mission is to create alternative products using only organic Swedish oats.
A few years back, after the worldwide success of oat-based drinks, Oatly created a range of oat-based ice creams. The ingredients are simple, and the flavors are delicious. Choose your favorite (vanilla, chocolate, hazelnut swirl, strawberry, salted caramel, mint chip) and find it in the nearest supermarket.
3. Halo Top
Halo Top is known worldwide as low-fat ice cream. All their flavors are high in protein and low in calories. That is why you can see the energy value on the front of the package. Normally it ranges from 90 to 380 calories per tub.

Jymy’s vegan line includes 6 flavors: Double Chocolate, Hazelnut and Mudcake, Mint Chocolate, Coconut-Lime, Pistachio, and Two Berries. All ice creams have their own unique base that ranges between oats, fava beans, and coconut cream. The greatest thing about Jymy is that most of the ingredients are hand-picked in the Nordic wild.
