If you're like me, you probably thought your gelato-eating days were over when you decided to go vegan. Fortunately, that's about to change.
Conscious Creamery has been offering free tastes of their dairy-free gelato at events around town. Saturday night, my husband Phil and I sampled a couple of different flavors at a Second Saturday reception outside of Midtown Aquatics. Andrea and Kevin of Conscious Creamery had a cart with six different flavors available.
Back in the days when I ate gelato, one of my favorite flavors was stracciatella, vanilla mixed with chocolate flakes. I was delighted that stracciatella was one of the choices offered by Conscious Creamery, and even more delighted about the mouth-watering taste and creamy consistency.
Phil opted for the dark chocolate gelato, which was very rich and quite delicious.
Conscious Creamery's gelatos contain no dairy products, eggs, soy, refined oils, fillers, artificial stabilizers, or artificial flavors or colors. The gelato is made in small batches, and organic, fair trade, and local ingredients are used whenever possible. Currently, this wonderful product is available only at special events, but after the first of the year, Conscious Creamery's owners hope to be able to start their own pop-ups.
