“Our dream is to change the dialogue in this world because this ice cream isn’t just ‘good for vegan,’ this ice cream is life-changing delicious because it is vegan.”

Portland-based ice cream chain Salt & Straw has introduced a lineup of vegan flavours called Vegandulgence to kickstart 2021.

The ice creamery is introducing five new flavours using rich, plant-based ingredients like oat milk, coconut cream, hazelnut butter, and avocado which give the ice creams such a luscious texture that the company’s press release describes it as putting “cow’s cream to shame.”

The newest flavours are 100% dairy and gluten-free.

 The line-up includes Peanut Butter Strawberry Crumble, which combines Northwest strawberries in a peanut butter oat milk ice cream studded with a salted oatmeal streusel.

The Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies & Cream flavour is the most decadent ice cream thanks to the trifecta of single-origin chocolate, coconut cream, and hazelnut butter topped with homemade “Oreos”.

The Caramelized Honeycomb flavour has its taste spiked with deeply caramelized, chocolate-dipped honeycomb candy mixed in vanilla & smooth oat milk ice cream.

The Coconut Rice Pudding, which is Salt & Straw’s version of the classic dessert is made with Jasmine rice cooked in coconut milk and spiced with cardamom and cinnamon.

The Banana Avocado Sorbet is a simple yet delicious mix of the two fruits that focuses on the natural flavor and velvety texture of avocados and the nutritional sweetness of bananas.

‘Most indulgent vegan ice cream’

“We’re using everything we know about the science of ice cream including the freezing of proteins to make the most indulgent vegan ice cream possible,” Salt & Straw head ice cream maker, Tyler Malek, said.

 “Our dream is to change the dialogue in this world because this ice cream isn’t just ‘good for vegan,’ this ice cream is life-changing delicious because it is vegan.”

The seasonal “Vegandulgence” flavors are available at all Seattle scoop shops across the U.S., including Portland, Los Angeles, Anaheim, San Diego, and the Bay Area until 5th February.

This isn’t the ice cream maker’s first go at scoops of vegan treats.

Salt & Straw has maintained 20 % vegan flavours on its year-round menu since 2019.
