Let's be honest, it is difficult to grocery shop, even with a list, and not get a dessert. But when you are lactose-intolerant or simply choose not to eat dairy, the options are more limited. Thankfully, many dairy-free ice creams have been popping up.

For all of you lactose-intolerant and dairy-avoiding folks, here is an honest ranking of dairy-free ice creams that you can find at Whole Foods.

I am not dairy-free by choice, so as it became more popular in society to go dairy-free, the ice cream followed suit, and I am truly thankful.
