If you’re looking for ways to cool down as summer comes to a close in Austin, then I’m sure consuming a cold treat has come to mind. Why not ice cream as you endure the close of seasonal 100-degree weather? Well, while other people would have to inquire with Siri, you don’t have to look further because I found three ice cream shops in Austin, Texas that include CBD options on its menu to keep you chill and be chilled.
Lick Ice Cream + Restart CBD = Cashew Brownie Dough
Re-start CBD and Lick Honest Ice Cream premiered its Cashew Brownie Dough CBD ice cream with on National CBD Day, and it is amazing. This chill treat is vegan, gluten-free, and absolutely creamy delightful. Oh! And the CBD. Re-start’s Instagram states that each scoop contains 7.5g of Re-Start CBD Isolate and each pint 25g of Re-Start CBD Isolate.
On National CBD Day, I scooped up this desert in San Antonio, Texas. Luckily, it’s available in Austin until supplies last so go pick it up! Learn more about the faces behind Restart here from @CannaVybe.
Sweet Ritual + Shop Mary Jae
cream. This crunchy Austin snack has a sunflower seed base with coconut “bacun” and is covered with vegan honeycomb and gluten-free pretzel pieces. I expected it to be “iceish?” like other vegan ice creams I have had but Sweet Ritual nailed the creamy texture in the recipe. It was the perfect relief from my 102-degree afternoon on 4631 Airport Blvd Austin, Texas.
Each scoop contains 5 mg of CBD and full of the perfect mix of goodies.
This is definitely a MUST for whenever you are in the mood for ice cream. Plus, the contrast between the green cream and the blue cone (pick is also a choice!) is so Rock and Roll it will melt away any worries while you sing into it your favorite emo song from the ’00s. Oh, just me?
It is worth mentioning that this artisanal premium vegan ice cream shop is wonderful at accommodating dietary needs. Sweet Ritual offers ice cream for everybody with dairy-free ice cream options for a wide variety of alternative lifestyle desserts. For all of y’all who might be vegan, a foodie, have food allergies or follow Keto or Paleo, options are available here!
