We’ve recognized the ice cream sandwiches from Coolhaus as one our favorite food truck desserts and even as one of our top picks for sweet treats in all of the five boroughs. What’s more, Coolhaus boasts several vegan options for cookies (chocolate banana truffle, carrot cake) and sorbets (blood orange, spicy pineapple cilantro and strawberry mojito).

    New York vegans – you guys are SPOILED. Haha. I thought it was good that here in MN we’ve got two vegan options for ice cream – Chicago SoyDairy soft serve at Franklin Freeze and house made, solar powered soy options at Izzy’s. Ya’ll kick our butts, though. And I WILL be visiting NYC eventually and will gain a billion pounds sampling all your amazing vegan noms.
