The Best Thing I Ate This Month That Wasn't A Veggie Burger

I apologize in advance if this post makes you jealous...

Once upon a time, I said that my lovely neighborhood of Astoria, Queens would be absolutely perfect if we could just get a pizzeria that served vegan pizza, and an ice cream shop that sold scoops of vegan ice cream. Well, we now have delicious vegan pizza options at Tufino Pizzeria Napoletana. And as of earlier this month, we now have vegan ice cream too:


Sweet Jane's Frozen Desserts just opened a few weeks ago, but I have already stopped by many times. They have regular dairy-ice cream as well as dairy-free flavors - all homemade and organic!

Check out this menu, dairy-free options on the right-hand side:


Amazing, right?

A sampling of the dairy-free flavors I have tried so far, from left to right:
Gingerbread, Chai, Chocolate Raspberry, Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie, and Strawberry. All delicious!

And the best part: This ice cream shop is just a couple blocks from my apartment. I can walk there in less than three minutes!
Complete dream come true. I have every intention of stopping by ice cream at least twice a week for the rest of the summer. And you should come check it out too!

  1. Super jealous! We have several places that offer vegan cheese pizza in Memphis, but we don't have any ice cream shops with vegan options! :-( I want a vegan ice cream shop!!

    1. if you ever come visit NYC, we have a couple shops now! they are all delicious :)

  2. Nice showing so far: both in cones and nail polish!

    1. haha thanks - I noticed when I put that photo strip together that it definitely reveals how often I switch up my nail polish lol

  3. Yum! How awesome there is such a variety of vegan flavors! I could never have it just three minutes away and maintain any sense of moderation.....

    1. It's truly difficult to resist! The only thing that keeps me from eating it every day is I often work such long hours and have so much else going on in my life after work each evening that I often don't get home until after the ice cream shop is closed. lol.
