For many, veganism seems to be equated with radical diets of kale and tofu. But in reality, Austin offers up tons of delicious vegan options. Sweet Ritual is one of the hallmark vegan restaurants, with humble origins at a counter inside of a Juiceland. Since their start, however, they have grown and now own their very own shop near 45th and Airport.
Take a bite of any of their flavors, and it’s hard to believe there are no animal products. They make everything from scratch and the scoops are either based in nut butters or coconut, soy, or almond milk. They offer up a delicious array of rotating flavors, from cubano coffee and salted caramel to Unicorn Poop and strawberry shortcake. They even offer a selection of delicious vegan toppings such as lavender syrup, magic shell, marshmallows, and cookie dough.
Sweet Ritual makes a great place for vegans and non-vegans alike. The ice cream is delicious and the options are endless. Grab a milkshake, a cone, or just a simple scoop. However you enjoy your animal product-free treat, you’re sure to enjoy it.
