Ever felt left out when your group of friends decide to pick the latest and hippest ice-cream café as their new favourite hangout spot? Whether you are watching your diet, or are lactose-intolerant, the temptation can be unbearable when you see your friends happily savouring their mounds of colourful ice-creams.
With many Singaporeans actively swapping their diets and lifestyles to a healthier one, it can be difficult to justify pampering yourself with a scoop.

To all my fellow sufferers out there, here are 8 cafés where you too can spoil yourself with healthier vegan ice-cream options this festive season!
