At nobó we are dedicated to creating supremely delicious and healthy, dairy free foods. The first step in our journey begins with our gluten and dairy free ice-cream, which we call, Frozen Goodness. It is the worlds first ice cream alternative made from avocado, coconut milk, and sweetened with pure honey.
All of our products are handmade in Ireland in small batches.
Rich, smooth, and crafted from the finest cocoa, topped with crunchy toasted almonds. A touch of sea salt giving added depth. Recipient of a gold star at The Great Taste Awards 2013.
Creamy, indulgent, and featuring the finest Madagascan vanilla, with exotic coconut undertones. Awarded a gold star at The Great Taste Awards 2013.
We are determined not only to deliver the purest and most nutritious alternative to dairy ice cream, but importantly one that is also creamy, indulgent, and tastes incredibly good. This is what we will always strive to do.
‘Free-from’ products often contain artificial and unhealthy ingredients that we feel are unnecessary and compromise their overall integrity. We simply use a few natural, highly nutritious ingredients that also happen to be ‘free from’ dairy, and nothing else. No gums, stabalizers, preservatives or additives. Nothing but goodness.
We are hugely proud of our Irish roots and fully committed to ensuring that all of our products are handmade in Ireland. Due to the nature of our product, we can not source all of our raw ingredients from Ireland but we strive to use local produce wherever possible.
We are two Dublin born, self confessed food geeks. After spending time living in New York working in Finance and Advertising respectively, we took a leap of faith and moved to Italy to work in a restaurant and immerse ourselves in our true passion. Upon returning home, we were determined to start a food business together. Importantly, we wanted to bring our love of tasty, delicious food together with our other interest in health and nutrition.
The outcome of this is Nobó.

We like to call it Frozen Goodness. It’s an ice cream alternative that has a similar texture and feel to ice cream but is made from just a few natural dairy free ingredients; coconut milk, avocado, water and sweetened with honey. Some of our customers even include Frozen Goodness in their breakfast smoothies due to its nutritional profile. In addition, our products do not include any preservatives gums, stabilizers etc.
We’re working hard to get our Frozen Goodness into freezers across the country. We are currently available in a few Dublin outlets, but stay tuned as we’ll be adding new shops all the time and expanding our reach. If you have a shop and would like to stock nobó or want to see us for sale in your local shop, please get in touch. We’re excited about the next step in the nobó journey!
We are big fans of the humble coconut! Not only does it taste delicious but coconut milk contains essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that supply lots of benefits to the body. About a third of coconut flesh is fat (and about 92% of this fat is technically classified as saturated) but it is mostly made up of short and medium-chain fatty acids that are both immediately used for energy, so they are not stored easily as adipose tissue (body fat) like long-chain fatty acids found in dairy milk.
On a long drive to Connemara we started thinking up names for our new business. We wanted something that communicated a little about what we do and also the fact that we are an Irish company. Surrounded by cows along our journey we suddenly thought – how about NoBó? Bó is cow in Irish. Nobó = no cow = dairy-free.
