Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. – Just in time for National Ice Cream Day on July 16—which, fittingly, falls in the middle of National Ice Cream Month—PETA has selected the Top 10 Vegan Ice Cream Sundaes from eateries across the U.S., and Palm Beach Gardens’ Christopher’s Kitchen easily scooped up a spot on the list with its very special Mint Sundae.
The shop’s award-winning dessert combines a generous scoop each of chocolate, cookies and cream, and cooling mint ice creams. A heaping helping of crumbled mint bark covers a crisscross of chocolate sauce—and a mint leaf adds an extra pop of fresh flavor.
“With its triple scoops of decadent dairy-free ice cream and delicious chocolate toppings, this award-winning sundae at Christopher’s Kitchen packs a minty punch,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “All the vegan ice cream sundaes on PETA’s list prove that you can indulge your sweet tooth while being sweet to mother cows.”
Not only is vegan ice cream free of saturated animal fat and cholesterol, it’s also kinder to mother cows on dairy farms, who are artificially impregnated and then separated from their newborn calves immediately after birth so that their milk can be consumed by humans instead.
Rounding out PETA’s list is the iconic Sublime Restaurant & Bar in Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Crossroads and KindKreme in Los Angeles; Sweet Ritual in Austin, Texas; Banán in Honolulu; Boston’s Veggie Galaxy; Virtuous Pie in Portland, Oregon; Denver’s SNOWLAB; and The Cookie Counter in Seattle. Each winner will receive a framed certificate.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat or abuse in any other way”—also offers tips on its website for finding delicious dairy-free ice cream at grocery stores across the country.
