Streets launches vegan Magnum and Cornetto ice cream flavours for health-conscious Aussies

Australia’s favourite ice cream brands have responded to food-shamers — releasing an interesting line of classic flavours in response.

We already know that Australia is becoming increasingly health conscious — with 67 per cent of us opting to follow a certain diet.

But, research also reveals that 73 per cent of us also love to devour an ice cream at least one a month.

And that’s when some of our favourite Aussie ice cream brands have stepped in — creating ranges that satisfy those cravings but are also healthy.

Magnum, Ben & Jerry’s, Cornetto, Blue Ribbon and Weis have joined forces to introduce a new range of ice cream that are reduced in calories, contain protein, non-dairy, vegan, gluten free and made with real fruits.

Dietitian and nutritionist Susie Burrell said while there was no magic formula to the perfect diet as our bodies are very different, finding the right balance is key.

“Consumers are looking for food options that are healthier, lower in sugar, fat and carbs, at the same time we are also a nation of ice cream lovers,” she told news.com.au

“The availability of the new range of ice-creams means that Aussies are now given a wider variety of options to suit their dietary preferences.”

The Magnum Dairy Free range features two of the brands’ signature flavours, Magnum Dairy Free Classic and Magnum Dairy Free Almond and is made with plant-based vegan ice cream.

The Blue Ribbon Low-Cal has under 400 calories per 460ml tub and 60 per cent less fat than traditional ice cream.

For all the soy lovers, the Cornetto Vegan Vanilla range is made with vegan chocolate, soy vanilla ice cream and has a crunchy hazelnut laden topping.

Weis has gone for non-dairy ice cream bars, frozen yoghurt and sorbets, while Ben and Jerry’s has also jumped on-board with its dairy-free range.

They’re available at selected convenience stores, petrol stations and supermarkets.
