These local artisanal ice cream and gelato makers offer some of the best freshly made pints and tubs for your easy stay-home consumption in Singapore.

This household name dishes out best selling favourites the likes of Blue Pea Vanilla, Sea Salt Gula Melaka and Roasted Pistachio, all best had with their famed golden waffles which they offer for delivery as well. Give their seasonal flavours a try too. The Lime Mojito is an alcoholic and zesty treat. But we’re most excited about their new Lemon Curd Matcha Croissant Ice Cream, a flavour made in collaboration with Bakery Brera, featuring the bakehouse’s famed Lemon Curd and Matcha Cruffins. Free islandwide delivery for orders $65 and above.
For all the satisfaction without the guilt, Momolato is your friend. The halal-certified brand offers a good range of sugar-free, dairy-free and even keto options, allowing you to indulge blissfully in peace. Its Triple Cheese flavour uses actual aged gouda, philadelphia cheese, and generous shavings of pecorino romano cheese, while its Yuzu Lemon Cheesecake is an irresistibly fragrant and luscious delight. Not so concerned about the gains? Its usual range of gelatos, from speculoos to wild honey camomile, are amazing too. Free islandwide delivery for orders $65 and above.
The island’s hot topic at the moment, hyperlocal concept No Horse Run opened under a HDB block in Yishun to much fanfare, and for good reason. Its handcrafted gelatos are low in fat and sugar, and are freshly churned on a daily basis in small batches. Find nostalgic flavours like Muah Chee (glutinous rice snack) and Cereal Mai Pian (rolled oatmeal) on the menu, as well as a premium assortment in options like Smoked Milk with Cocoa Nibs and Seasalt Matcha. Free islandwide delivery for orders above $60.
Chendol steals the show at this halal certified kiosk now doing deliveries of its giant toppings-filled cups. Think pandan jelly, gula melaka syrup and even durian fruit puree available as decadent topping options for its homemade chendol ice creams. Not feeling like chendol? Try the equally Singaporean Milo Dinosaur soft serve instead, that comes with milo balls, chocolate sauce and generous sprinklings of milo powder. Islandwide delivery at $12, or order more than 10 pints for free delivery.
