Vegan Drinks: ATX Ice Cream Edition

ATX Vegan Drinks is expanding the definition of “drinks” to include sundaes and milkshakes. Unsurprisingly, no one is complaining.

ATX Vegan Drinks (the second this month!) will be at Sweet Ritual/Daily Juice tonight at 7 PM. Join Sweet Ritual in celebrating the full funding of their kickstarter project (there’s still time to donate). Look forward to hard packed vegan ice cream with mix ins this fall.

Red Rabbit Bakery, Celeste’s Best, and Capital City Bakery are all joining in the fun. Build a sundae over Cap City brownies or a Red Rabbit donut or garnish it with Red Rabbit donut holes or Celeste’s Best cookie dough. Red Rabbit will be there debuting a new donut flavor, root beer, and Celeste’s Best will be sampling their dough.

As far as actual drinks, you can order any of the usual beverages offered by Daily Juice, or bring your own. Hyde Park Market, across the street from Daily Juice, carries every single beer distributed in the state of Texas. And while you’re there, you can check out their new bulk bins.

Daily Juice’s usual food menu might be streamlined for the event, but there will be savory vegan food options available to balance out your twelve scoop donut-brownie-cookie dough sundae.

Sorbeteria Dallas

One might wonder what possessed me to fight the holiday shoppers in search of sorbet in one of the busiest shopping centers in Dallas…and in near-freezing temperatures no less! But when I learned from my friend and Spiral Diner employee, Eli, about Sorbeteria’s tasty and completely vegan frozen treats, I decided to brave the traffic and weather to sample the goods myself.

Having designed and constructed their shop using mostly recycled materials, this eco-friendly confectioner’s philosophy is simple. “Fresh and clean on the palate. Made with real fruit. Far better for you than similar treats-and with fewer calories, too.” Operations manager Anthony Tompkins led me through a tasting of every flavor. I enjoyed samples of several berry, citrus, and tropical flavors, but Anthony and I were in agreement that the pear sorbet was extra special. And there were no feelings of remorse or guilt after my stop at Sorbeteria. Made with freshly puréed fruits from local vendors and lightly sweetened with natural cane, each scoop is only around 60 calories!
