Ice cream for everybody!


Ice cream for everybody!


A sweet Ritual for all

We believe that ice cream is more than just food, more than just a treat.

Ice cream is part of the celebrations and consolations that mark important events
in our lives, and no one should be left out.  That's why we make amazing
dairy free ice cream with options for a wide variety of dietary needs.

Vegan, Allergies, Foodies, Keto & Paleo: we've got just the scoop for you!


Made & Served with Love & care

Sweet Ritual makes dairy-free ice cream in small artisan batches from scratch ingredients in our production kitchen on 183 and Burnet Road. We partner with local producers and suppliers to use real fruit, fragrant spices, and hand-made vegan baked goods in our ice creams.

Everything served to you at Sweet Ritual scoop shop is compostable: the bowls, straws, cups, and spoons. We compost with Break it Down, a local composting facility. ToGoCo provides all of our compostable paper goods.

The art & science of ice creAm

The hardest part about making vegan ice cream? Getting up at 4am to milk the almonds! All kidding aside, since we don't use milk or cream, we've taken a scientific approach to getting our vegan ice creams right, finding the perfect balance of liquids, sugars, fats, and proteins. Our customers rave that they love Sweet Ritual more than regular ice cream.

After making ice cream out of nuts, coconut milk, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, hemp seeds, and avocado, we feel like we could make ice cream out of just about anything!  We pride ourselves on pairing ingredients to provide just the right balance of flavors, and we're always experimenting with new combinations.
