Where to Find Vegan Ice Cream in Barcelona

One doesn’t have to go very far to find dairy free gelato in Barcelona. It seems both locals and travelers have been in high demand for lactose free ice cream since before the vegan eating craze hit Spain.

Vegan ice cream should be available in some form in any parlor that you wander past while exploring the city center. Not all of them will have creamy gelato, but most will have at least two or three fruity sorbet options that are naturally made void of any milk.

For the creamy, real ice cream experience (still void of milk) one should head to any of the following.

Gocce di Latte in Barcelona

This ice cream parlor is a gem to Barcelona. It’s virtually unheard of to find a parlor in which all of the ice creams are made both dairy free and free of gluten. Celiacs and gluten free eaters struggle to enjoy ice cream in Europe as most cones and gelato flavors incorporate wheat and/or biscuit into them in some way.

Gocce di Latte makes all of their ice creams naturally, free of gluten and dairy, and it is some of the best ice cream you’ll find in the city.

I go out of my way to visit for their coconut gelato; sometimes I add pistachio along with it but only on special occasions. The banana and turmeric flavors are great too — along with everything else, actually.

The best part? Gocce di Latte is close to Barceloneta’s beaches as well, so you can easily access vegan treats after a long day in the summer sun.

Parallelo in Barcelona

Parallelo have the biggest range of vegan ice cream in Barcelona after Gocce di Latte.

They make everything from traditional creamy vegan hazelnut gelato to creative sorbets that also use zero milk. I love Barcelona for always having coconut ice cream available as a vegan option; this doesn’t happen frequently in other cities in Europe.

Two scoops on a cone or in a cup will cost just €3.40. Their vegan menu is most comprised of light, fruity sorbets but they do offer three very creamy vegan ice creams in coconut, banana split and dark chocolate flavors.

Mannà Gelats in Barcelona

Eating at Mannà Gelats has brought out the ice cream snob in just about everyone I know. Multiple different people have expressed that they aren’t interested in eating gelato in Barcelona unless it’s from Mannà Gelats.

Somewhat understandable, this parlor close to Barcelona’s Picasso Museum does make some pretty remarkable frozen treats. Their milk based flavors are accompanied by a range of dairy free ones, and there is no noticeable difference between the quality or texture at all.

OGGI Gelato in Barcelona

OGGI Gelato is known as Barcelona’s experimental ice cream parlor. They are forever creating new and exciting flavors that push boundaries on what should and shouldn’t be made into ice cream.

I head to OGGI with the intention of trying something new and strange for a change, and walk away every single time with a cup of their vegan chocolate gelato. So boring, so unoriginal, but so utterly irresistible.
