NY, Ithaca – Sweet Melissa’s Ice Cream Shop


Sweet Melissa’s is a traditional little  ice cream shop in downtown Ithaca, but after many dairy-free requests, Melissa decided it was time to include some non-dairy options. But rather than purchase a mix or brand, she makes her own vegan recipes using coconut milk, sugar, and guar gum as the base. These ingredients are the key to dairy-free creaminess at Sweet Melissa’s.

Sweet Melissa’s typically offers two dairy-free flavors at a time, with varieties like cookies and cream, mint chocolate chip and chocolate. But Melissa is always dreaming up new flavors and welcomes customer requests.
