Boston – In time for National Ice Cream Day on July 16—which falls in the middle of National Ice Cream Month—PETA has selected the Top 10 Vegan Ice Cream Sundaes in the U.S., and Boston’s Veggie Galaxy easily scooped up a spot on the list with its Berry Sundae.
The diner’s award-winning dessert combines two scoops of coconut-based vegan ice cream—made locally in Boston by FoMu—along with house-made blueberry and strawberry sauces, and tops them off with a dollop of coconut whipped cream.
“With its creamy coconut-milk ice cream and its fresh fruity sauces, Veggie Galaxy’s Berry Sundae is a decadent dairy-free delight,” 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 and Christopher’s Kitchen in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida; Crossroads and KindKreme in Los Angeles; Banán in Honolulu; Sweet Ritual in Austin, Texas; 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.
