Scoops Of Love Ice Cream

Manufactured in Singapore, Scoops of Love are pure handcrafted vegetarian - egg-free, additive-free, preservative-free - ice-creams with no artificial nasties. They were started with love by the founders for their 89 year old grandmother who is a pure vegetarian and missed natural ice creams. The smile on her face when she ate her first bite was so satisfying that they decided to go ahead and share the love with all.

Priding themselves on the freshness of the pulp, Scoops Of Love use 2 cups of fruit for every cup of dairy, making the ice cream real creamy and fresh. The sweetness comes naturally from the fruit because of the high fruit content and only minimal sugar is added to stabilise the taste of the ice cream. What a perfect Diwali delight!

So, what are the ice cream flavours? Limited edition Diwali flavours are Gulab Jamun and Thandai Paan. Also on offer are Custard Apple, Alphonso Mango; Fig Ice Cream made with pure dried figs giving it a sweet, honeyed taste and a soft texture; Chickoo, also known as Sapodilla, has a sweet, malty flavour with a mild pear-like undertone; and dive into Pink Guava with its musky fragrance and tropical notes of papaya, passion fruit, melon and ripe pear. Recommended to eat it with a sprinkle of salt and red chilli powder!

Love multiple flavours? Choose to get the Gift Assorted Box of 6 with a variety of yummy ice cream flavours.
