SF Bay Area: there’s a new vegan ice cream!  »

Reader Katie (of the Factory Farming Awareness Coalition!) reports about new ice cream (and ice cream sandwiches!) that are sweeping the vegan scene by storm. I can’t vouch for them but I totally trust Katie because girl knows what’s up so let’s see what she thinks:

At the Montclair Village farmers’ market this past Sunday, I was perusing the stalls when I came across an aesthetically-adorable ice cream booth, Green Girl BakeShop. I stopped to admire their ice cream sandwiches, steeling myself for the disappointment of not being able to eat any, when I saw the “no dairy” sign! It turns out all of their ice creams and ice cream cookie sandwiches are vegan! The ice creams are cashew and coconut based. I sampled the toasted pecan, and the balsamic fig. To me, toasted pecan ice cream is just like donuts; I was never that crazy about them before I was vegan, but as soon as I couldn’t have them anymore I craved them. The toasted pecans were so delicious and slightly carmelized tasting. The ice cream itself definitely has a cashew-y flavor, which I enjoyed. I couldn’t really taste the balsamic fig very well because my mouth was still full of toasted pecan. Unfortunately, since it was 10 in the morning I couldn’t justify buying a full ice cream sandwich, so I didn’t get to taste the cookie. Anyway, their products are adorable.

They’re at the Montclair and Lafayette farmers’ markets, so have at it everyone and come back and tell us what you think immediately!
