A Certificate of Appreciation is on its way from PETA to Nabati (Arabic for “plant-based”), Miami’s first all-vegan ice cream shop, which is a welcome addition for anyone who is lactose intolerant or wants to get away from the deleterious health, environmental, and animal welfare consequences of consuming dairy. Nabati’s delicious, creamy ice cream is made from organic cashews, coconuts, and other ingredients and comes in a variety of flavors, including black sesame, matcha powder, raspberry and thyme, and vanilla cookie dough—and to top it all off, the service-ware is biodegradable and the shop is entirely plastic-free.
“Similar businesses might scoop up a prize themselves if they follow Nabati’s lead and go vegan,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “PETA praises this sweet shop for being a friend to kind people and animals, and we just know it will become a Magic City staple.”
Vegan ice cream is free of saturated animal fat and cholesterol and kind to mother cows—who, on dairy farms, are artificially impregnated (raped via syringe) and then separated from their newborn calves immediately after birth so that their milk can be consumed by humans instead.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—notes that consuming dairy is an act of speciesism, a form of discrimination against and exploitation of “others.”
