When I first became vegan a year ago, I thought I’d be giving up all the delicious desserts I ever lived by. Saying goodbye to cakes, pies, chocolates and most of all ice creams. Never would I imagine that ice cream could be made with non-dairy milk. It wasn’t long till I was introduced to Brownice, a Vegan Ice Cream parlor in Singapore that does organic and dairy-free frozen treats. It was the best day of my life!
Brownice ice cream is made with organic brown rice milk, fruits and all natural flavours. The idea of making ice cream from non-dairy milk never crossed my mind before. The ice cream itself is sweet, creamy and taste just like any regular dairy ice cream. In fact the taste and texture is so similar that no would know the difference if they weren’t told otherwise.
This alternative is not only great for vegans but also those who are lactose intolerant, allergic to soy or those watching their weight. At Brownice you can eat up with a clean conscience and without the guilt. It is a win-win!
The flavors here change depending on the season (they keep the best sellers and rotate the others) and they have quite a range. If you can’t decide what to have… well, just get everything! Thats what I did when I was there for the first time! 3 scoops will only set you back by S$7! And trust me, it is worth every dollar! My favorite flavor here would be the Gula Melaka Salted Caramel. It is beautifully creamy and smooth, managing to be light and luscious.
The Mac n Cheese was delicious. It got a creamy mustard based sauce, a chewy al dente penne and garnished with some greens and crushed almonds. I couldn’t help wonder why they are removing this item from the menu. Mac n Cheese is such a classic dish loved by all ages. I had to seized every opportunity to talk to the owners and convinced them not to remove the item. I even shared my Mac n Cheese sauce recipe with them in hopes that they keep the item. I haven’t been back since then, I hope they still serve this dish. I just love Mac n Cheese.
Brownice has two branches one on Sin Ming Road and the other on East Coast Road.
