NYC Vegan Ice Cream Round-Up


I’m going to put my mind to doing something I’ve wanted to for a while. I’ve wanted to test out all of the options in NYC’s vegan ice cream offerings but haven’t had the chance to yet. I’ve been to what many describe as the vegan ice cream haven, the ice cream shop formerly known as Lula’s Sweet Apothecary, and it’s everything you could expect. Lula’s is an amazing ice cream shop with great service, and an unpretentious vibe and amazing flavors. The cake batter soft serve is the stuff of ice cream-y dreamies. But, given that I don’t always have cash and they are cash only, sometimes I’m relegated to something else that’ll accept my boring debit card. 

So I’m going to try doing something simultaneously with my regular posts. I’m writing about it as an intention to complete while I do what is normally a part of vegan MoFo, which I’ve already been slackin’ with. 

I’ll be trying the ice cream offerings at:

  • 16 Handles, a fro-yo chain with new vanilla soy yogurt, 
  • Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit Co. with all vegan ice cream made with bananas (yes it’s what you make at home)
  • Alchemy Creamery, an artisanal ice cream company from Williamsburg
  • Van Leeuwen, who have both a truck and a storefront in the downtown NYC area and 4 solid vegan flavor
  • Steve’s — not a store but a really highly acclaimed local small-batch ice cream company 






Vegan Hershey’s Pie

Check out the source of my most recent chocolate delusions and what’s been driving me mad for a few weeks of constantly thinking ’bout it. Vegan. Hershey’s. Pie. You know, the one you got from Burger King.

Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

I want to apologize in advance for this one— I was in a rush when I made them and didn’t have much time to photograph… Gulp. I mean, I didn’t have any and I’m sorry you didn’t get to see them because they were a sight. I will be making them again as requested, so I think you’ll be seeing them soon.

I’m not much into simple things these days, especially no food-induced nostalgia of eating simple classic foods. So when it comes time to make things for people who like the classics, I’m inclined to want to add something to it. I’ve apparently never heard of the idiom “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.”

*I want to fix all the things.*

What I’ve been up to:


We’ve been up to lots here! Vegan Churros, Chocolate-covered Marshmallows, Gluten-free Vegan Hostess cupcakes (recipe to come!), and more that haven’t been pictured. I’m also working on a recipe that I’m really proud of, moreso than anything else I’ve ever done. I’ll post it soon. I’m also going to revise the Funfetti Cookie recipe, as I felt they were too dry and could use some lift. So, I’ll be seeing you soon!
