There’s a new dairy-free ice cream in town! SweetPea, is a new plant-based, non-dairy ice cream made with chickpeas. And it’s perfect for dairy-free ice cream lovers.

“We’re excited to finally share SweetPea with ice cream lovers everywhere,” said SweetPea co-founder Heather Romens in an emailed statement. “It was important for us to provide a non-dairy frozen dessert that is both delicious and can be enjoyed by everyone. We’re incredibly proud of the pints we’ve created.”

The ice cream is powered by chickpeas, (one of Whole Foods’s Top 10 Food Trends for 2021) and is half the calories and half the fat of regular ice cream!

SweetPea is available to order online with in-store availability expected soon! There are nine flavors available now: That’s a Mean Vanilla Bean, Peanut Butter Bomb; Must Do Cold Brew; Mango Tango (feat. Peach); One ’n Only Cookies ‘n Cream; Salted Caramel’s Sweet Talkin’ Pralines; T.G.I.PieDay: Raspberry; 3 Parts Chocolate; and Hello, Cookie Dough.
