Vegan Options at Dairy Queen

Vegan Options at Dairy Queen

The vegan options at Dairy Queen might be better than you think. While ice cream is not an option, Dairy does do ‘light smoothies’ that are made with fresh fruit. You can go with fries and hashbrowns IF you don’t mind your food sharing a fryer. As for an actual meal – good luck. A side salad is available along with some modified options and side items.
