Salt & Straw's New Vegan Ice Cream Flavors Are Inspired By Classic Desserts
Salt & Straw is an Oregon-based handmade ice cream purveyor, and founders Kim and Tyler Malek are committed to making good ice cream for everyone, including those with dietary restrictions. On December 30, 2022, the company released new vegan ice cream for lovers of classic American desserts, vegan or not.
Salt & Straw introduces limited-edition ice cream flavors about every month, with a focus on decadence. The five new flavors include Bananas Foster, featuring banana-infused coconut cream-based ice cream swirled with vegan banana purée-infused caramel, and a simple, rich Chocolate Sorbet enhanced with flaky salt.
There's also Toasted Oat Milk & Cookies, a vanilla-cinnamon oat milk-based ice cream studded with chocolate chip cookie chunks and ganache. Peanut Butter Brittle Caramel Fudge is a vanilla-flavored coconut cream-based ice cream with a semi-sweet caramel fudge swirl and flecks of peanut butter brittle.
Lastly, the Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting flavor consists of red velvet batter-infused coconut ice cream with cream cheese-frosted chunks of red velvet cake. These vegan flavors will be available in-store and for shipping on Salt & Straw's website between December 30, 2022, and February 2, 2023.
