The Best Vegan Ice Cream Around SoMa
As the weather warms up, the best way to keep cool is with ice cream! And for those who have sensitivities, whether allergic or ethical, there are options to enjoy some smooth frozen treats. Here are the 5 best vegan ice cream shops in SoMa.
The hottest new way to enjoy ice cream is rolled up in a tube. Icicles provide more than just a dessert; it’s a dessert AND a show. After you pick your flavor, you get to watch how the magic happens, as the ice cream base is poured on a big ice cold pan. It is then spread thin so that it freezes evenly, and then scraped into little-rolled tubes of frozen goodness. Non-dairy vegan options include Strawberry Lemonade, raspberry, and mango fruit roll-ups. They also offer unlimited toppings, including fruits and nuts.
For a European take on the creamy classic, try Coletta Gelato. Here you can find your standard non-dairy fruit sorbets, but also a luscious dark chocolate mousse sorbet that will scratch your chocolate itch. Just so you know you are getting authenticity, the two owners met in Milan and attended Gelato University which, funny enough, actually exists near Bologna, Italy. Explore la dolce vita at Coletta Gelato.
It’s easy to fall into the trap of the same old sorbets. Strawberry, mango, raspberry. We get it. Sometimes you want something new and unexpected. That’s where Humphry Slocombe comes in. The two founders don’t see their flavors as unusual. Just new. And maybe that is exactly what we need. Their sorbet options include combos like hibiscus beet or carrot mango. Maybe kick things up with a cayenne cantaloupe sorbet. If it’s something you never thought would make a sorbet flavor, chances are Humphry Slocombe has it.
When looking for vegan options for frozen dessert lovers, SoMa has some great options. Stop into one of these joints and order up a heaping scoop (or roll) or ice cold greatness.
