A nice September stop at Erin McKenna’s Bakery in Disney Springs delivered a delightful and very hard to find treat…vegan soft serve ice cream with caramel sauce! This is the best option for dairy free ice cream, and the toppings are just such a treat. […]
Back for more! I am quite spoiled by my local Chicago Swirlz gluten free dairy free cupcakes. Their cookie dough variety is the best. Additionally, I make very good chocolate gluten free dairy free cupcakes at home, so in order for me to get excited about a gluten free cake item, the bar is high. Sadly, Erin McKenna’s cupcakes don’t measure up for my taste preferences, but I do enjoy the brownies with mocha! That being said, the ice cream was the star of the show during this visit. I was so impressed by the vanilla and it’s smooth flavor, not overwhelmingly coconut. Amazing texture! I headed back for more, only to find that they had sold out of vanilla! Sigh. So I reluctantly accepted chocolate, and asked for their vegan caramel topping in addition to a cookie crumb gluten free topping. That was a wonderful treat! I also very much enjoyed the chocolate ice cream. Again, the texture is light and smooth while the flavor is almost delicate! Sweet enough, while delivering the flavors without throwing them in your face. The caramel is the main delight as I never have dairy free caramel! I am not sure how you even make it dairy free, as I have never tried, but what a nice surprise. This will be a repeat stop for me! Caramel vanilla next time 🙂 Enjoy!
