The top 5 vegan ice cream sandwiches in Toronto
The top vegan ice cream sandwiches in Toronto will keep dairy-averse folks from missing out on some of Toronto's tastiest frozen treats. By popular demand, I've assembled this list of the ultimate, hand-held frozen alternatives for those living life dairy-free. (Bonus: Many of them omit gluten as well.)
Honourable mentions go to Bunner's Bake Shop and APieCalypse Now!, who both make delicious (but not frozen) cookie sandwiches - so, technically, they're whoopie pies (though I bet they taste great too, if you store them in the freezer).
Here are my picks for the top vegan ice cream sandwiches in Toronto.
Doug's Public Kitchen
While not available at his eatery, you'll find Doug McNish slinging handheld frozen treats ($6) at the Evergreen Brick Works weekly Saturday farmers' market. Nestled between gluten-free vegan cookies or Belgian wafflettes, select from Pleasantville Creamery ice cream flavours like summer berry, almond butter ripple or double raw cacao.
Vegans in the Beach(es) can enjoy this nostalgic frozen treat at this dairy- and refined sugar-free bakeshop. The house-made chocolate ice cream is made of dates, cashews and coconut cream, and is available sandwiched between two gluten-free oatmeal chocolate chip cookies for $5.
Coco and Cowe Confectionery
While vegan creations aren't reliably stocked in this bike-powered ice cream cart, they can be made to order. Inquire about raspberry sorbet sandwiched between dairy-free, gluten-free almond sponge cake ($5), available for special orders and catering gigs.
Found in the 707 Market at Scadding Court, this cargo container vendor offers a vegan and gluten-free version of their popular ice cream sandwiches. Enjoy a scoop of creamy coconut ice cream nestled between crunchy almond cookies.
Among the line-up of mix-and-match cookies and ice creams at this Bloorcourt bakeshop you'll find a vegan, gluten-free oatmeal chocolate chip cookie, as well as dairy-free ice creams in flavours like raspberry and chocolate. Ask for both frozen flavours together for delicious results.
