Singapore's First Vegan Ice Cream Joint Takes The 'Guilty' Away From Pleasure

If you’re like me and you ate your entire body weight in steamboat and treats over the Chinese New Year break, it’s time to get back in shape!

But who says you can’t enjoy a little sweat treat every now and then.

Over at Brownice, they serve up one of the best vegan ice creams in Singapore and best part, it’s completely guilt-free!

You Can Have Your Ice Cream And Eat It Too

Being vegan or lactose-intolerant, you probably know how frustrating it is to be restricted from ice creams.

Fret not, Brownice serves vegan-friendly ice cream that uses brown rice as a substitute. Yes, you read that right. No dairy or eggs in this one!

If you’re expecting a rich gelato texture, unfortunately Brownice’s ice cream is less creamy and more icy (think of a cross between sorbet and ice cream).

While it is texturally lighter on the palate, it certainly does not lack flavour.

Looking for something light and refreshing for those hot sunny days? Their fruit based flavours such as the Sunny Strawberry Fields (from $3.50 per scoop) will be the choice to go for.

For creamier flavours, you should definitely try out their Black Sesame, Gila Gula Melaka and The Perfect Matcha.

Even better, treat yourself and go for the Waffle-licious Ice Cream ($8 with a scoop of ice cream).

Brownice prides in the fact that their ice cream contains less than 3% fat and boasts a calorie count of 80-140kcal per scoop. How’s that for your waistline?

Their outlet at East Coast Road serves a variety of Italian fare as well. Brownice is here to prove that Italian food can still be enjoyed if you’re vegan.

They serve one of the best vegan friendly pizzas ($14-$19) I’ve tried to date. You can barely taste the difference from your traditional Italian pizza.

The pastas ($10-$18) have great flavours too although most are tomato-based. Their Lasagna ($17), which features layers of diced eggplants and tofu in a thick and creamy tomato ragu sauce, is a crowd favourite!

Brownice has got our stamp of approval if you’re looking at vegan-friendly options. We’re surprised this place hasn’t opened all over Singapore yet.

Dear Brownice owners, if you’re reading this, please open 30 more branches all over Singapore. We’re more than happy to throw all our angbao money just for your ice cream!
