Ice cream sandwiches in the haus! If you haven’t checked out Coolhaus already, I suggest you hightail it to their nearest truck. They are the sweetest little ice cream sandwich truck with multiple trucks around the country, including two in Austin (coming soon to Dallas too!). I was so excited when I heard that they offer a couple different vegan options, I ran out and tried them right away. Their current vegan options include:
-vegan cookies: chocolate banana truffle and carrot cake
-vegan sorbets: strawberry mojito, spicy pineapple cilantro, and blood orange
I’ve sampled both cookies, and all the flavors listed above, though not all the different combinations (there is time yet). And while some combos are stranger than others, there isn’t a bad flavor in the house – you just have to keep an open mind when creating your ice cream sandwich. We’ve tried a carrot cake cookie with the strawberry mojito sorbet, and a chocolate banana truffle cookie with the blood orange sorbet. Both were excellent, and fun combinations. They also come wrapped in these ingenious edible rice paper wrappers that help keep your hands clean.
The magnetic board on the front of the truck will tell you the current options of the day, and while I’ve yet to see a truck with all the vegan options, I’ve also never seen a truck with no vegan options – so you have a very good chance of finding some combination to try. You can usually find a truck parked at Hope Farmer’s on Sundays, and another one parked at 6th and Waller most weekdays, but be sure to check their schedule online or twitter for their current locations.
As the temperature starts to rise here in Austin, I know these little trucks will be a welcome respite.
