Ice cream is one of those pleasures in life that needs to be tasty, creamy, and served with toppings that are also a feast for the eyes. New York has top shops that not only do the above but go way beyond in ensuring your frozen treat is fresh, pure, and doesn’t contain harmful additives or preservatives.
There are a number of outlets for Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream as well as a number of food trucks – you can see all the locations on their website. We have given the details for the East Village location only. All their ice cream is crafted in Greenpoint, Brooklyn using fresh milk and cream, cane sugar, and egg yolks for the classic scoops. Vegan scoops are created using housemade cashew milk, organic coconut milk, organic extra virgin coconut oil, organic cane sugar, pure cocoa butter, and organic carob bean. The result in both cases is rich, decadent, ice cream.
When: Open seven days a week from 12:00 noon to 12:00 midnight.
