While in Austin for my Birthday two weekends ago, we made a stop at Toy Joy for some vegan soft serve.

As tempting as “Choco-Nana” sounded, we couldn’t resist trying the Cookies n’ Cream shake.

I originally found out about this tasty Vegan Soft Serve on VegansRockAustin.org while looking for tattoo recommendations. Artist, Cook and Vegan Soft Serve creator Amelia Elodie Raley had postings about tattoo artists she personally recommended and info about Sweet Ritual, an ice cream parlor that will specialize in homemade dairy-free treats and desserts. Amelia and Valerie had a successful Kickstarter campaign and should be opening their doors later this year. Since 2008 Amelia has been serving the Austin community at a Cafe inside Toy Joy, but the success of her treats has grown to a size that requires their own facility.

We’ll definitely have to check out Sweet Ritual when they are up and running. Looking forward to it!
