We're willing to run all over the place to get plant-based ice cream. So imagine how happy we were to learn that Banter Ice Cream in Abbotsford (one berg over from our own) serves it!
Banter Ice Cream - Vegan Options
Banter is located in the back of what used to be the Abbotsford Branch of the Fraser Valley Library. I remember as a youngster, consulting the encyclopedias (remember those from before Google?) in that sad worn out building. Now repurposed, the building makes people happy by dispensing some pretty good small batch house-created ice cream, some of which is even plant-based.
So that we could try all 3 vegan flavours, we ordered a cone and a 2-scoop cup. The ice cream is not what we would call expensive considering the quality at 5.25 for a single scoop and $7.50 for a double ($1.25 for a waffle cone). My wife was keen on trying the Coffee Caramel Crunch, which was great!
For the cup, we tried the vegan Chocolate (always on their menu), and Blueberry something (maybe lemon?) which I can't remember. These were also very fine. You would never know you are not eating dairy ice cream (which begs the question, why would you eat dairy ice cream?). We are completely impressed!
Considering we are well into Autumn, we still needed to wait a few minutes but it was worth it. The menu always changes (month to month) but chocolate is a standard and at least one if not two other plant-based concoctions will be available. Our server was friendly and helpful! Thanks, Banter!
