When there’s a heatwave in town there’s only one thing for it – you need to get hold of some gluten and dairy free ice-creams!

You just know once the mercury rises the free from sections of the freezers will start to empty.

Whether you fancy a Cornetto, scoops of ice-cream, refreshing sorbets or an alcohol-based frozen treat, I’ve got you covered.

I’ve swept the supermarket shelves to see what gluten free ice-creams you need to have at the ready!

I first wrote this post back in 2018 so I’ve gone through and updated it (July 2021) – hopefully all of your favourites are still around!

All of those listed below are gluten and dairy free ice-creams, and most of them (if not all) are vegan too.

So what are you waiting for?

Of course always double check the ingredients as sometimes recipes change and it’s important to always check!

I’ve heard good things about these mochi balls and I decided to try some when I spotted them in Tesco I had to try them.

And oh my word, these gluten free and vegan calls of goodness may be expensive at £4.50 a box but they are DELICIOUS!

Wicked Kitchen Chocolate and Red Berry Cones

These Wicked Kitchen Chocolate and Red Berry Cones are another sneaky vegan find in Tesco which are accidentally gluten free.

They come with a gluten free cone and are delicious – I love the chocolate at the end of the cone!

Co-op gluten free strawberry & vanilla cones

These strawberry and vanilla cones from Co-op are gluten free and dairy free so perfect for everyone to enjoy.

I think these are new this year and look fabulous.

Swedish Glace vanilla and strawberry cone

I found these gluten and dairy free vegan vanilla cones with strawberry sauce in by Swedish Glace in Tesco.

I love the chocolate casing around the ice-cream which stops it dribbling down my hands!

Gluten free and vegan Magnums

Some normal Magnums are gluten free anyway, but not all of them.

These vegan Magnums are gluten and dairy free, so perfect for anyone to enjoy – in almond or classic.

Sainsbury’s gin & tonic sorbet

gluten free ice-creams and ice lollies UK 2019

Ok, I know it’s not technically an ice-cream, but this gin and tonic sorbet from Sainsbury’s is gluten and dairy free and IT IS INCREDIBLE.

Booja-Booja ice-creams

gluten free ice-creams and ice lollies UK 2019

If you want a real treat then you have to try Booja-Booja ice-creams.

Firstly, they have the best flavour names ever. And second, they’re all dairy free and gluten free! Found in Holland & Barratt.

Miiro gluten & dairy free ice-lollies

gluten free ice-creams and ice lollies UK 2019

Miiro produce some fab vegan and gluten free ice-lollies, and the salted caramel one is definitely my favourite.

I discovered these in Holland & Barratt and they’re perfect if you’re dairy free too.

Gluten free & vegan Cornetto

gluten free ice-creams and ice lollies UK 2019

There was a real buzz when these gluten free and vegan Cornettos first launched, and for good reason.

They taste great and I love the crunchy cone with a chunk of chocolate at the bottom. Found in Sainsbury’s.

Sainsbury’s free from iced desserts

gluten free ice-creams and ice lollies UK 2019

I’m still yet to try these gluten and dairy free iced desserts from Sainsbury’s, but it’s amazing to see a good choice of flavours!

Great if you have multiple allergens you’re trying to avoid.

Yorica ice-cream

gluten free ice-creams and ice lollies UK 2019

Visiting Yorica’s ice-cream parlour in London was a game-changer for me, so actually being able to buy some of their flavours in Waitrose now is great news! Free from all allergens!

M&S chocolate and vanilla cones

It seems a lot of supermarkets have cut down some of their gluten free ice-cream offerings.

I spotted these in M&S still (some of their other products have been discontinued) but forgot to photograph it so I’ve shared this post from @vegandiariescmb.

Coconuts Organic ice-creams

I saw my friend Jenna post about these new gluten and dairy free ice-creams. They’re available in Tesco and sound lovely – will have to give them a go!

Northern Bloc


I absolutely LOVE Northern Bloc ice-cream (you can buy it in Co-op) and recently tried their vegan flavours at a trade food show. It was absolutely delicious and I’m stocking up on more today!

Whole Creations raspberry swirl cones

Any gluten and dairy free ice-creams I have missed?

I’m sure I have by no means exhausted all the gluten and dairy free ice-cream out there, but I hope this gives you some ideas ahead of the heatwave!

    1. Give it time – the sun has just come out here! But agree, ice-cream is always a good idea!!

  1. Hi Sarah

    Love it when your email hits the inbox! Coeliac disease earring out and ice cream don’t really go hand in hand, especially up in the north of Scotland!

    But though I would sure this with you, if you are ever on the Moray Coast and see the town of Portsoy take a detour, they have THE best ice cream parlour I’ve ever found and are happy to help gluten free customers, they even make and sell gluten free cones! If we weren’t in the caravan at the time I would of brought ice cream home, but caravan freezers and ice cream don’t mix, unless you’re going to eat it pretty quickly!

    So Portsoy Ice Cream, 24 Seafield Street Portsoy, AB45 2QT add it you your places to visit!

    Enjoy the summer!

    We are sat in the caravan in 30°C in a caravan park called Dovecot by Laurncekirk a great little site, and would love ice cream right now!

    All the best Karen, Hubby Tom and the sprocker spaniel Meg…who loves ice cream too!
