Summer is just around the corner and as the days get longer and the weather gets warmer, there’s nothing like a cold and creamy ice cream cone to cool yourself down. The only problem is you’ve sworn off dairy. The good news? You’re in Sonoma County, the hub of artisan crafted foods for every kind of person! With that in mind, here are four ice cream shops with vegan options so delicious you’ll never miss dairy again.
1. Screamin Mimi’s in Sebastopol
Listed #4 Best Ice Cream in the US from USA today, they definitely have something to scream about. What we like best is their variety of interesting sorbet flavors such as Bollywood and Raspberry Ginger. And the cute pink exterior is just the cherry on top!
2. Lala’s Creamery in Petaluma
Decked out with checkered floors, a long marble counter with barstools, and even a coffee station with every flavored syrup imaginable, this place has it all. It also happens to be very lively on a Friday night. The best part? They serve multiple vegan flavors such as Coffee & Kahlua, Pina Colada, and even Smores. And to top it off, don’t miss out on the vegan whipped cream!
3. Two Dog Night in Sebastopol
Not only do they have a cool name and delicious gelato, they make their ice cream using liquid nitrogen to ensure the creamiest consistency. Their vegan flavors—cranberry orange, strawberry chocolate chip, and Dutch chocolate– are made with cashew milk to maintain that velvety texture.
4. Sweet Scoops in Sonoma
As the only homemade ice cream shop in beautiful and historic Sonoma Square, Sweet Scoops is already a popular favorite, but what really drew us in is the unique vegan options—there’s always at least two. Flavors change often so there’s always something new to try—our favorite is the Lavender Fig!
