I'm a little shocked that I forgot to post something about our visit to Earnest Ice Cream on the North Shore back at the beginning of April. Ice cream is one of those things that you have to plan a little more carefully for if you prefer to eat cruelty-free. Oh, sure, you can eat sorbet or sherbet all day but it's really not the same thing. Fortunately, Earnest Ice Cream is one of those places where they are highly creative and make brilliant vegan ice cream flavours and treats.
Earnest Ice Cream - Vegan Ice Cream!
Located just a block west of Lonsdale on West 1rst in North Van, we arrived to a busy place as it was an early beautiful weekend in Metro Vancouver. I can't remember what all the choices were on the day we were there but I notice that they have 4 vegan flavours today in North Van. I think the menu changes pretty regularly.
Its been a while and I can't remember exactly but this Sunday had raspberry sauce and and some sort of chocolate hardening sauce and I think there were caramel bits in the tuile. It was rich and delicious that much I remember.
Once again, can't remember the flavours but Mharie got a double scoop cone. No, she doesn't have man hands as that is me posing the picture. Looks like some kind of berry for the top scoop and maybe chocolate chips in the bottom scoop. Does it really matter though? We are talking plant based ice cream here, people!
There is some seating here in North Van at EIC including a few window seats. The line was formidable when we arrived but the service is highly efficient even though everyone has trouble making up their minds. There are 4 Earnest locations and you can check on line to see what they are serving. Nice!
