You can get ice cream in lots of different flavours like mint, vanilla and chocolate. Yum.

Well there's a new type of ice cream being launched in the UK and it's made from camels' milk!

The makers reckon it has half the amount of fat of dairy ice cream, and three times the amount of vitamin C.

The camels' milk is shipped in from the world's only commercial camel farm in the Netherlands, which is home to 58 of the humped beasts.

The owners of the farm say they have to keep the camels happy as if they're stressed they don't produce milk.

The dessert is already popular in the Middle East and the makers are hoping it will take off here.
