Made with Love and care
We make everything from scratch, right in our shop. Each of our ice creams starts with creamy nut butters and is finished with real fruit, fresh spices, or inclusions from vegan bakeries. We are always looking to source more local ingredients like Hill Country lavender and Fredericksburg peaches. We get most of our ingredients from local distributors like ToGoCo, who provides all of our compostable paper goods, and Southern Style Spices who brings us toasted cashews. We love working with other Austin businesses to create new flavors and products: try the Cookies 'n' Creme with gluten-free Better Bites Bakery chocolate cookies or get your sundae with a fudgy chocolate brownie from Capital City Bakery.
The art and science of ice cream
Sweet RItual ice cream is always smooth, creamy, cold, and delicious without the dairy. Since we don't use milk or cream, we've taken a scientific approach to getting it just right, finding the perfect balance of liquids, sugars, fats, and proteins to make it taste just right. Every new addition changes the balance and we adjust accordingly. Using a wide variety of bases has made us nimble and adaptable. After making ice cream out of nuts, coconut milk, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, and avocado, we feel like we could make it out of just about anything! Making vegan ice cream is a beautiful blend of being a scientist in a lab and a painter sitting before a canvas. We pride ourselves on pairing ingredients to provide just the right balance of flavors, and we're always experimenting with new combinations.
