SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Raise your spoons: Ben & Jerry's now has nondairy ice cream.

The Vermont ice cream maker has created four flavors using a certified vegan almond milk base. Available are the classic Chunky Monkey and Chocolate Fudge Brownie flavors, plus a couple of new ones: Coffee Caramel Fudge and P.B. and Cookies. The P.B. and Cookies variety is a vanilla nondairy frozen dessert with chocolate sandwich cookies and crunchy peanut butter swirls.

The company has been getting requests for years to make nondairy ice cream.

University of Vermont nutrition Professor Mingruo Guo, (MING-gro Gwo) says he's not surprised Ben & Jerry's came out with nondairy products because a growing number of people don't want to eat dairy products or they are unable to do so.

The flavors are available in pints.
