Gelato Shop Ditches Dairy and Goes 100% Vegan

New vegan gelato shops are sweet, but previously non-vegan gelato shops making the swap are even sweeter.

Good Food reports that Gelato Blue has ditched dairy to feature an entirely vegan menu, making them Sydney’s first plant-based gelateria. This past weekend, the family run business decided that coconut milk was the way to go, after slowly edging towards the vegan friendly desserts due to customer demand.

Store manager Fotini Platis credits animal welfare and environmental concern for helping influence the change, and wanting everyone to get the chance to enjoy a great cup or cone. “Because we are a family business, we treat our customers like family. When people were coming into the store and we had nothing to feed them, we felt just as bad as we would have if we were inviting them into our house and there was no suitable food,” she told Good Food.

All of their gelato is made in-house, with the most popular flavours being mint choc-chip, espresso swirl, and carrot cake. They even feature an aquafaba made vegan pavlova, because they are on the ball with the trends, people. Oh, and lucky vegans can find tiramisu, lamington, creative sundaes, and donuts also on the menu. It’s too early for us to be this hungry!

Good Food also mentions this isn’t the first vegan swap on the block, with a pizzeria and fish and chip shop serving plant-based eats nearby. Sounds like King Street is the perfect place for a vegan food tour.

With summer around the corner, Gelato Blue will no doubt be showing many gelato-hungry people that animals don’t need to be used for a decadent, cool treat.

Concerned about endangered animals? Stop eating them

Methods of animal conservation that support the exploitation of animals don’t exist for the animals, they exist for human profit.

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
