Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream

dessert - food truck - vegan

I am pretty clueless about the NYC restaurant scene, but for some reason the desserts are still on my radar.  One I’ve been hearing about for quite some time is Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream, from Brooklyn.  They’ve now got a truck in Los Angeles, and we spotted it outside the Hello Kitty Opening last week.

Although Abe and I aren’t vegan, we consider ourselves dairy-free ice cream connoisseurs.  Theirs are made from coconut/cashew milk, raw cocoa butter, extra virgin coconut oil, and organic sugar cane.

This was the mint chip, and it was perfection.

Follow the truck on twitter – I heard rumors they’re opening a store downtown, and writing a cookbook.

Three Twins Ice Cream

People often ask me what’s on “The Actor’s Diet,” to which I answer, “Whatever I feel like.”  Lately, with another heat wave hitting Los Angeles, it seems like all I’m craving is ice cream!

On Sunday, I had “breakfast” with Audrey at Salt and Straw, then “lunch” with Abe in Santa Monica at a new place – Three Twins Ice Cream.

Scoops are small.  I got the vegan option – Stormy Night – a chocolate rice milk concoction.

Abe ordered a cookie sandwich.  I can’t remember if these were vegan/gluten-free or not but I wasn’t a fan of the textures.

The ice cream part, however, I can get behind!
