Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream
Everyone loves ice cream, but it is SO much better when it's free of preservatives, artificial sweeteners and high fructose corn syrup, along with all the other nasty stuff that generally comes along with this delicious treat.
Enter Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream. Not only are their original flavors made using only fresh milk and cream and a little bit of organic cane sugar, they also offer vegan options too, which are a divine concoction of coconut and cashew milk, raw cacao butter, coconut oil and organic cane sugar. All are gluten-free, soy-free and non-GMO.
Find their trucks around popular Manhattan spots such as the West Village and Soho, as well as in hipster Williamsberg. There is also a physical store in the East Village.
