This smooth, vegan gelato comes in strawberry, dark chocolate, hazelnut, and burnt caramel flavors

Whether you’re lactose intolerant, sensitive to soy, vegan, or just looking for a less guilty way to enjoy your favorite gelato, local brand Alt Scoops is here to help, serving dairy-free gelato made with creamy oat milk.

Alt Scoops is the latest venture of Hygge Bev, a local company that imports Swedish oat milk Oatly! from Amsterdam. Hygge Bev launched their flagship Hygge Gelato (in strawberry and coffee flavors) in October 2020.

Alt Scoops, launched in March 2021, comes in 4 flavors, which are all dairy-free, soy-free, and made with natural flavors. Their homemade gelato is creamy, smooth, light on the tongue, but rich in flavor.

Their best-selling strawberry gelato (P375) remains on the menu, which is a fruity and bright flavor made from ripe Cordillera strawberries. The dark chocolate (P350) is rich and decadent, made with single origin cacao beans from Davao and Auro’s 77% dark chocolate bar.

Fans of Nutella may enjoy the nutty and creamy choco hazelnut (P350), made with Gianduia. For the salted caramel enthusiasts, Alt Scoops also has a burnt caramel with roasted pecan (P375) flavor that’s buttery, smooth, and topped with real, crunchy pecans.

Alt Scoops can be ordered via Hygge Bev’s website. Deliveries usually take one to three days within Metro Manila (dates for provincial deliveries will vary). They’re based in La Vista, Katipunan, Quezon City and in Bacood, Sta Mesa, Manila. –
