One of our awesome readers suggested that we check out Mister FruitCup – so we did just that. (Thank you, and keep those suggestions coming!) Initially, I was skeptical that anything called a fruit cup could be amazing, but I was so glad to be proven wrong.
Mister FruitCup’s menu is full of fresh and inventive creations, with add-ins and sauces that elevate a fruit cup into a full-blown meal. They have options like seeds and nuts, fresh herbs and original sauces, and some vegan friendly substitutions, like agave and a vegan whipped cream! We tried a Sez Ah U Sesame and a Rainbow Cup (sans sprinkles). The first cup came with watermelon, honeydew, basil, jalapeño, lime, sesame seed and sea salt. The second cup came with pineapple, watermelon, bananas, strawberries and whipped cream. Both were intensely flavorful, with one a bit more savory, the other sweet, and perfect as dessert. They are great for families, after a jog at Lady Bird Lake, or as a snack or dessert on a hot summer day. Their menu changes seasonally, and they’re always looking for suggestions, so let them know what you’d like to see.
Because they love their vegan customers, Mister FruitCup is offering 20% off for our readers during the month of July – just mention that you saw them on Red Hot Vegans!
Their trailer is located at 415 Jessie St, in a new food truck lot tucked behind Thom’s Market on Barton Springs Road. It’s in the same lot as Ice Cream Social (vegan friendly sorbets)! They’re open Wednesday through Sunday, and there is limited street parking available.
Note: For our journalistic integrity (we haz it!), we want to mention that we got our fruit cups for free (blogging is awesome), but we totally would have paid for them, and can’t wait to go back!
