Sometimes you find dairy free food where you least expect it. A perfect example of this is TCBY, The Country's Best Yogurt.
From TCBY's website
TCBY recently re-branded themselves and the company now offers sorbet (dairy free) along with their traditional frozen yogurts (dairy products). My local TCBY offers two different sorbet flavors daily which include flavors such as raspberry, orange, mango, strawberry kiwi, ruby red grapefruit, and strawberry lemonade. The sorbet (and the frozen yogurt) is self serve, so you can mix and match flavors and get the serving size that you want.

Not only does TCBY offer sorbet, but you are able to put on a limitless amount of toppings from their toppings bar. Some of my favorites are their assorted fruits, coconut shreds, walnuts in syrup, marshmallow topping, and sprinkles (but they have SO much more).
TCBY is a great place for groups with allergy and non-allergy people, because there is literally something for everyone and those who are dairy free will not feel left out! Case in point, my sister (who does not have a dairy allergy) and I went to out local TCBY this weekend. I was able to get raspberry sorbet with dairy free toppings and she got a combination of coffee, chocolate, and peanut butter frozen yogurt with various toppings.
Cross-section. Yummy, yummy, yummy!
If there is a TCBY near you, you should give it a try! It is so great to be able to go to an ice cream parlor and definitively know that there will be something there for you to enjoy too!
