Summer has shown its hothead and as much as I don’t want to admit it, anything goes when it’s blazing. Lounging shirtless on the wooden floor of your apartment? Yes. Scheduling your dog walks during the coolest hours of the day? Check. Only eating cool temp meals, to not exacerbate the sweat already streaming down your face? DUH! And though I love ice cream, popsicles, and all frozen treats as much as the next I can’t justify eating it every day, unless it from Alchemy Creamery.

Haven’t heard of them? Well let me give you the 411, hun. Alchemy Creamery is a dairy-free New York fave, now available for domestic shipping. Its light, yet packed with flavor while being gluten-free, certified kosher and vegan. Which means for those who can’t handle certain ingredients like me, you will not only be able to enjoy a frozen afternoon delight, BUT they’ll be no stomach cramping or bloating as a result.Alchemy-Collage-2

I also noticed that I didn’t have the insatiable craving to eat the entire sandwich, push-pop, or pint in one sitting. With the flavors being so rich, a few bites were enough to quench my sweet tooth. And as I’m not a scientist, I don’t know if there’s an addictive additive within normal ice cream, but there’s a distinct difference between how I feel during and after eating Alchemy Creamery and other brands.

“With a love for food nurtured by a lifetime spent in my family’s restaurants, a need to find delicious, lactose‐free frozen treats, and a homemade ice cream machine, we founded Alchemy Creamery in the kitchen of my cramped NYC apartment in Spring 2009,” says Alchemy Creamery Co‐Founder, Giuseppe Maione.

Alchemy Creamery is available at very select grocery stores, but available for nationwide shipping in signature flavors such as Almond Marzipan, Salted Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chai, Green Tea Coconut, Strawberries & Cream, and special flavors like Blackberry Chocolate, which I love!
