Looking for more? Here's last summer's list of great vegan ice cream options.
Nuggs Ice Cream5135 East Colfax Avenue
Nuggs makes all of its ice cream daily with ingredients sourced locally. For the vegan ice cream options, each variety is made with a creamy coconut-milk base. Flavors rotate and include tasty creations such as piña colada, cookies and cream, cherry amaretto and Sour Face Lemon.
Frozen Matter530 East 19th Avenue, 720-600-6358
1061 Gaylord Street, 720-546-6871
Frozen Matter has locations in Uptown and Washington Park — both serving ice cream made with organic, all-natural ingredients. The dairy-free options vary here, but there will always be something for vegans. Mint chocolate chip, orange honeycomb, the Scout (inspired by Thin Mint cookies) and watermelon mint are recent additions.
Milkbox Ice Creamery1701 Wynkoop Street
Milkbox Ice Creamery calls Union Station home, serving sixteen ice cream flavors as well as milkshakes — including boozy options for adults. Two vegan ice cream flavors and one sorbet are always on hand. The chocolate salted Oreo is a recent dairy-free favorite. The vegan ice creams and shakes are made with alternative milk options: soy, coconut or almond.
Bonnie Brae Ice Cream799 South University Boulevard
Bonnie Brae Ice Cream may have that old-school ice cream shop feel, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t vegan options here. Flavors change daily, and you can check out the day’s offering on the shop's website. Recent milk-free options include cotton candy, chocolate chocolate chip and coconut. Two sorbets are always available as well.
Make, Believe Bakery214 East 13th Avenue
Make, Believe Bakery is a completely vegan bakery next door to vegetarian favorite City, O' City. The chocolate and vanilla soft serve ice creams are a canvas for making your own decadent creation. Incorporate a variety of toppings, such as cookie dough, brownies, funfetti cake, caramel praline, peanut butter cup and more.
