Dear Bella Creamery

Featured In

We’ve come a long way since the days of chalky, grainy, icy vegan ice cream. Founded by Taiwanese-Americans Alice Cherng and Belinda Wei, Dear Bella is a plant-based creamery that’s making waves for its smooth-textured scoops with a full, velvety mouthfeel. While some vegan purveyors use not-so-great components to achieve a dairy-like consistency, Cherng and Wei are gung-ho about never utilizing artificial colors, sweeteners, preservatives, or hydrogenated oils. Instead, the spotlight is on premium, natural ingredients—like fresh farmers market produce and bases rooted in coconut milk, oat milk, and sunflower butter—and hand-crafted everything, including gluten-free cookies, crusts, and crumbles. The dynamic duo also pays homage to their heritage with tasty flavors like Taiwanese Pineapple Cake (bursting with buttery, jam-filled shortcake chunks) and Sweet Red Bean (studded with adzuki and swirled with red bean sauce), although you’ll also find plenty more inspired by their culinary curiosity, such as Halva, Earl Grey Tea, and Passion Fruit Banana. Dear Bella now ships its pints nationally—so you can send delicious ice cream to your favorite out-of-towners.
