VEGAN ICE CREAM MAN -
Ice cream is a sweet and creamy treat that's been beloved worldwide. But, for me it's much more than everyone's favorite dessert. It has many other meanings...
My mom often told me she ate ice cream everyday of her pregnancy with me. I fell in love with both mother and ice cream at the beginning of my time!
Ice cream is a popular comfort food. It's magical! Its taste creates feelings of nostalgia. Its mouthfeel brings smiles and a peaceful calm.
As a child, I thought the ice cream man had the coolest job on Planet Earth because his arrival created happiness.
As a teen, it was a summer job working on my enterprising grandmothers ice cream cart. She was preparing me to become an entrepreneur.
As a young man, it became an opportunity to start a business. By now, I had grown to be The Ice Cream Man but I was unknowingly becoming The Vegan Ice Cream Man.
I absolutely loved dairy ice cream in my earlier years. But, as I evolved my lifestyle changed. I adopted a plant-based diet and stopped eating all animal products including my favorite dessert...ice cream.
I tried many brands with coconut, cashew, almond, oat and soy based alternatives but I never found a non-dairy version that I enjoyed. Sadly, they all had an aftertaste.
Then one day, after over 20 yrs. of separation...I had a dream! What if I could make a non-dairy frozen dessert that has the taste and mouthfeel of traditional ice cream?
So, I decided to create my own creamy plant-based ice cream that is dairy, egg, cruelty and nut free!
Today, making a delicious creamy non-dairy frozen dessert is my passion. The Vegan Ice Cream Man brand is my labor of love and I am so happy to share!
