Powerhouse magazines Forbes and The Economist have noted, in their own words, that 2019 is becoming the year of the vegan. With more and more options popping up for those who consume a plant-based diet, we couldn’t agree more. At our ChillN Nitrogen Ice Cream shops, we want everyone to enjoy the liquid nitrogen ice cream experience, so we include dairy-free options suitable for vegans and anyone who abstains from dairy, making it possible for more people to enjoy the flash-freeze ice cream adventure!
Increasing Dairy-free, Vegan Options
Everywhere you look, from grocery stores to restaurants, more and more vegan options are popping up every year. There are plant-based meat substitutes that taste delicious, vegan takes on everything from burritos to pot pies, and store-bought dairy-free yogurts and ice creams.
Yes, you can have ice cream without the dairy, and frozen treat shops are getting wise to this! At ChillN, we offer a coconut milk base vegan option that everyone can enjoy, even people who don’t consume dairy. This option opens the doors for more and more people to try and enjoy our fun atmosphere and unique nitrogen-fueled experience!
For The Lactose Intolerant Among Us
Vegans choose to eat foods with no dairy whatsoever for a variety of reasons, from a sense of compassion towards animals, to health reasons, and in some cases, on religious or spiritual grounds. In addition, there are those among us who are lactose intolerant. What does this mean?
Being lactose intolerant means that dairy disagrees with your system! It makes you feel uncomfortable and even ill, affecting your digestive tract and giving you unpleasant symptoms that may include stomach pain, bloating, fatigue, headaches, and more. Individuals who are lactose intolerant can still enjoy the flavors and fun associated with nitrogen ice cream shops, thanks to options like our coconut milk base.
Science Ice Cream Can Be Enjoyed By Everyone
More than just ice cream, flash-freeze ice cream is an experience! Let us explain; first of all, everything has a sciency feel to it, which appeals to science buffs as well as the geek inside all of us! Who doesn’t remember the thrill of chemical reactions creating flashes of light and mini explosions in high school chemistry class?
The science theme is carried through beautifully in our ice cream shops, starting with the menu that’s designed to look like a periodic table. Our menu cleverly lists our ice cream base as well as flavors (both regular and seasonal) and mix-ins.
Our menu is easy to decipher, and if you eat a vegan or dairy-free diet, you can see that we have many flavor and mix-ins options you can select. Build your very own, customized ice cream creation using our Periodic Table of Flavors!
