Grab your spoon! Aldi have released a line of dairy free ice cream

Bargain store favourite Aldi (opens in new tab) have pleased the masses again, and this time it's with their new line of dairy free ice cream – just in time for World Vegan Day.

Following a dairy free diet is no longer as difficult as it once was with many mainstream brands and supermarkets realising that people follow a dairy-free diet.

Whether it's to help with skin problems, ethical reasons or a necessary requirement for your health, either way dairy-free food has fast become a way of life for many people - and now they can tuck into tasty treats too, at a fraction of the cost of many rivals.

Leading ice cream brand Ben and Jerry's started dairy free tubs recently at £5.50, whereas these Aldi gems are on sale at £1.99 for 480ml making you a whopping £3.51 saving per tub.

The new range offers a light and refreshing coconut cream iced dessert as well as a delicious like-the-real-thing chocolate version.

And, as they're made from coconut cream they are officially both vegan and dairy-free, and as added bonus they're also gluten free too.

The exciting new release has sent Twitter into a sharing frenzy, with many applauding the store for branching out into the new area.
