To celebrate Singapore’s 55th birthday this year, Creamier Handcrafted Ice Cream
& Coffee has joined hands with a local beancurd stall, Pure Soya Bean—located at the Toa Payoh West Market & Food Centre at Blk 127 Lor 1—to come up with a new seasonal “Tau Huay” (Beancurd) ice cream flavour.
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!
Taking over local bakery Prima Deli’s long-time spot in Clementi is One Stone Three Birds. The humble ice cream cafe serves homemade gelato at affordable price points.

The shop is run by a husband and wife duo, passionate to find new flavours and infusions for their ice cream. Check out what we thought about this new ice cream shop!

Keep your eyes peeled and your calendars marked because come late November, famous Hokkaido soft serve shop Naganuma Ice is slated to open in Singapore’s Carlton City Hotel.
