Coconut-milk-based vegan ice cream can be had at Sweet Melissa’s Ice Cream Shop, right next to Shortstop Deli at 200 W Seneca St, Ithaca, NY, 14850.
It’s a dairy-oriented place generally, but they have delicious vegan ice cream and soft serve too. The vegan flavors (listed on a little white board; they change from time to time) include rice krispie treat (SO delicious), peanut butter oreo, coffee chocolate chunk, cinnamon, coconut, and green tea.
We’ve had more of those than I care to mention, my favorite being peanut butter oreo with CHOCOLATE SAUCE AND CHOPPED NUTS on it. So good!
Does anyone have photos of vegan ice cream they got at Sweet Melissa’s? Please share them in our Flickr group!
