i scream, you scream...

we all scream for dairy-free ice cream!!!

i am not sure why but i am completely addicted to ice cream/frozen yogurt. i usually have no less than 4 different kinds in my freezer at any given moment. there is always at least one soy flavor (purely decadent is my preferred brand--check out the GLUTEN-FREE flavors!) and one frozen yogurt or light (lower in lactose) ice cream flavor. occasional guests include sorbet, trader joe's soy bars, fruit popsicles, or green tea mochi ice cream.

i had read about stogo, an organic dairy-free ice cream place in the east village, and mentally added it to my long list of dessert places to try. imagine my luck when i happened to have dinner right around the corner the other night! i made it clear that everyone was to get a different flavor, so that we could try as many as possible. the roundup:
  • chocolate coconut (coconut milk based): sweet, rich, very chocolaty. smooth and deliciously creamy.
  • salted caramel pecan (soy based): also rich, sweet and creamy but not a whole lot of salt going on...could have been better.
  • there is also a picture of chocolate brownie above but since that isn't exactly wheat-free, i shall ignore it.
so if you're in need of a soy or coconut based frozen treat and don't trust yourself to go home with an entire pint, stogo is the perfect place to go! they even have some bakery items from babycakes...
