Here’s another spot to add to your list of go-to’s for vegan ice cream in Philly: Pure Fare. The healthy grab-and-go lunch spot used to have vegan soft serve, but they just started making their own vegan ice cream, dairy-free custards (no milk products, but they do contain egg), and ice cream sandwiches this summer.

We took one for the team and tried them out ourselves. I’ll be honest, I was a little skeptical that ice cream made primarily of avocados could taste like the real thing. But let me tell you, all of the flavors were absolutely deeeeelicous and the texture was super rich and creamy. If I hadn’t known ahead of time that I was eating vegan ice cream, I wouldn’t have even been able to tell the difference.




Right now, there are three flavors of ice cream, two custards, and three ice cream sandwiches. They don't have the menu posted online, so here are all the flavors and ingredients:
