Strawberry Blonde launches dairy-free soft-serve ice cream

Vegans, dairy avoiders, and soft-serve partisans take note. Dairy-free soft serve is here!

Last week, Strawberry Blonde Bakery fired up its ice cream machine and began swirling out two flavours of soy-based soft serve — vanilla and strawberry. It’s always a great day for a brain freeze, so we ordered up a cone (small $3.75; large $4.75) to take a lick. The verdict: light, cold, and smooth. It’s not super-creamy, but it is super-refreshing.

City Bites Hot Tip: Be bold and go for the swirl. Vanilla and strawberry — the best of both worlds. Now, when are they going to figure out a dairy-free chocolate dip?
