What started as an ice cream truck on the streets of NYC has now evolved into a small ice cream empire throughout New York and Los Angeles. Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream is THE spot to grab a scoop in New York City, with locations all around Manhattan and Brooklyn. Chances are you’ll be near one during your time in the city. And you definitely won’t be able to resist their dreamy dairy-free ice cream and unique flavors!
Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream isn’t all dairy-free, but they have a line of vegan ice creams that are rich, decadent, and creamy. Each dairy-free flavor is made from scratch with a base of cashew milk, coconut milk, and cocoa butter. It’s then mixed with fresh ingredients to make their creative flavors come to life. The dairy-free scoops include Salted Caramel, Pistachio, Chocolate Cookie Dough, Roasted Banana, Matcha, and so many more. Plus, they have special flavors that change frequently.
If you’re in need of something extra indulgent, then give one of their dairy-free sundaes a try! They even have coconut whipped cream to top it off.
If you can’t make it to one of their small cute locations or find an ice cream truck, you can buy pints of their ice creams. Some of the dairy-free flavors are sold in grocery stores throughout the city, including Whole Foods. Or you can purchase their cookbook and make their vegan ice cream in the comfort of your own home!
And if you ask me, the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Salted Caramel dairy-free flavors at Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream are not to be missed! Together they make a perfect combo of sweet and salty. And the giant chunks of chewy cookie dough are phenomenal.
