I tried this today, in the United States. It was cookie-dough ice cream, made from oat milk. It has little chocolate flakes in it.
.
um. you sure you were at BR?

its a fruity flavored thing. Non dairy ice creams are not new at BR. but this is their first oak milk one.
Plus it's the flavor of the month.

"In a note on his restaurant’s website, Humm said that the past year — when his acclaimed fine-dining establishment closed and he and his team focused on feeding the hungry through a partnership with a nonprofit group — had changed his perspective. “We have always operated with sensitivity to the impact we have on our surroundings, but it was becoming ever clearer that the current food system is simply not sustainable, in so many ways,” he wrote.

...

And so on June 10, gone will be the honey-glazed duck, the butter-poached lobster and the foie gras, all signature dishes that helped earn Eleven Madison Park three Michelin stars and a reputation as one of the world’s best restaurants. Humm wrote that he understood the risk he was taking by jettisoning the food that put him and his restaurant on the map but that he was excited about the new flavors he is experimenting with, such as intense vegetable broths, plant-based creams and butters, and fermented ingredients. According to the Wall Street Journal, Humm will make an exception to the all-plant-based rule by serving milk and honey with its coffee and tea."

Non-Dairy Strawberry Streusel is a frozen summertime twist on a delicious streusel dessert, packed with pieces of cinnamon granola and crumbly streusel swirled together with a strawberry ribbon in a creamy oat milk base.

It's a first. If you mean sorbet, it's not ice cream and nothing really new.

I would have preferred it without the granola as you only need the creamy base plus the strawberry swirl to make a perfect treat.

Nothing that would appeal to me.;)

My idea of perfect creamy plant based ice cream is Oatly strawberry. It contains no bits and pieces and tastes just like strawberries and cream.

''Let’s talk flavor strategy. Yes, it’s a thing in the product development world. So a lot of other players in this category have a “strawberries & cream” game plan, but our strategy is to let the star player be the star player. (You may be glad to know, with that last sentence, we’ve reached the quota for sports references on an oat company website, so please read on with confidence.) Even though our strawberries pair amazingly well with our oat base, our goal was never a strawberries & cream flavor. We’re making strawberry here, people. And in keeping with the bold flavor theme, we’ve added a touch of lemon and sea salt to bring out the strawberries’ best talents.

The result is that if it was summer and you were in a field eating juicy red strawberries brushed lightly with the leaf of a citrus tree, you wouldn’t have to try this product because you would already know exactly what it tastes like.''

That place is way out of my price range, but I hope it succeeds because it might encourage more affordable places to consider additional vegan options.
