Does Cold Stone Have Vegan Ice Cream?


It’s starting to feel like vegan ice cream is taking over. Dairy free ice cream now takes up an entire refrigerator at our local Kroger and I feel like I see a new brand or flavor every single time we go.

So, it’s natural to wonder if some of our favorite ice cream chains, like Cold Stone Creamery, are serving vegan ice cream.

Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news here, but while many chains are serving up dairy free ice cream, Cold Stone is not one of them – at least not yet.

But, all is not lost if you are (or at least were before going vegan) a fan of Cold Stone. 

Does Cold Stone Have Vegan Options?

Cold Stone Creamery

Like we said, there’s no vegan ice cream at Cold Stone, but there is a ton of dairy free options that you can choose from. These options come primarily in the form of sorbets that are absolutely delicious and can really hit the spot on those hot summer days.

Here’s a list of the current vegan sorbets at Cold Stone:

  • Countrytime Pink Lemonade
  • Lemon
  • Mojito
  • Orange
  • Peach Mango
  • Pineapple
  • Pineapple Orange Banana
  • Raspberry
  • Strawberry
  • Strawberry Lemonade
  • Strawberry Mango Banana
  • Watermelon

There is also a whole bunch of mix-ins and toppings that you can add to your sorbet as well. Outside of fruit, I’m not totally sure adding mix-ins to a sorbet is a thing, but hey, you do you.

We’re not going to list them all here, but if you’d like to see everything vegan offered at Cold Stone, then make sure to go check out our Cold Stone Creamery Vegan Guide.

Any Vegan Cones?

The final question now has to be – ‘are there any cones that are vegan or will I have to put my sorbet in a cup?’

Good news.

Cold Stone does have two cones which are vegan friendly. You can fill both the Cake Cone and the Sugar Cone with all the sorbet you like and enjoy!
