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:
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!
