Thanks to June for sending her recommendation of this great ice cream shop:
“You must let others know abouyt a great place I just found…Scoops Ice Cream in Kenosha, WI. They carry 8-9 vegan, dairy free ice cream options! They have 4 soy kreme based yummies that are my fav…chocolate, vanilla bean, butter pecan & Mint Choc Chunk! To die for! Their vegan sorbet is also delicious — mango is great in a freeze-brain…one of their signature vegan drinks made with seltzer water and sorbet — yum! I also love the Champagne sorbet and the Rasberry together — worth a double scopp to have the two together!
This place rocks! They also have soy milk and dairy free whipped cream….who would’ve ever thought a vegan could go out for ice cream with all her friends! PERFECT! PS, owners are real nice, too! They have a toy store next door which is loads of fun, too!’
Also, according the Kenosha News:
” … nine of the 42 hand-dipped sorbets and soy-based “ice creams” currently come in non-dairy flavors like chocolate, butter pecan, mint chocolate chunk, toasted coconut, vanilla bean. Jenny Heim also concocts a rich whipped topping daily from non-dairy ingredients. Atop a three-scoop banana split or a sundae, it rivals any traditional whipped cream in taste and texture, just as the hand-dipped, soy-based products rival conventional ice cream. The same vendor makes the dairy and non-dairy varieties, which, according to Jenny, numerous non-vegan patrons, much to their surprise, have found to their liking.”
The non-dairy “creamy” varieties were added to the menu specifically with milk allergies and lactose intolerance in mind!
