Hanging out at Sweet Ritual
The hubby and I recently traveled to Austin for a Pure Bathing Culture and La Luz show at Red 7. We make the trip to see bands every so often and when we do I try to hit up as many awesome vegan-friendly places as possible. Sweet Ritual Ice Cream Parlor had been on my radar for well over a year and we finally had the chance to visit them.
Sweet Ritual’s Turtle Sundae with Toasted Coconut Ice Cream
We decided to indulge and go with the Sundae Sampler, which let us choose three types of sundaes. I can be really indecisive when I have too many choices. It’s not something that happens often since vegan options are normally limited at restaurants. When I’m at an all-vegan establishment I get really excited and then really unsure of what I should get. I thought getting the sampler would make it easier for the hubby and I to pick a few different sundaes. I didn’t realize we had to make even more decisions on each sundae. Which ice cream, which toppings, should we get things toasted? We got through it and were pleased with our choices.
Sweet Ritual’s Cookies in Cream Ice Cream with Peanut Butter Magical Shell Sauce
I have to admit that I was a little sad when the sundaes weren’t served in a Banana Split dish as photographed, but that doesn’t really matter. What matters is that Sweet Ritual’s dairy-free ice cream is amazing. My favorite flavor was Toasted Coconut. So creamy and not too sweet. The Peanut Butter Magical Shell Sauce was delicious, but our favorite was definitely the Turtle Sundae. As I mentioned, you can customize the ice cream flavor and make adjustments to the toppings and sauces. They have lots of different ice cream flavors, as well as a variety of shakes.
Sweet Ritual’s Rocky Road Sundae
Sweet Ritual shares a space with Juiceland (oh, so many delicious juice drink options) and Exploded Records record shop. It’s a great place to hang out, get something delicious, and peruse through some records. We hope to be back the next time we’re in Austin.
