Top 20 Austin Favorites:

Salted Caramel Brownie Shake from Sweet Ritual

Salted Caramel Shake with a brownie from Sweet Ritual.

You know the magic that happens with a brownie sundae, when the ice cream starts to soak through the cake? Now, imagine that as a shake. That’s the fun behind adding a Capital City Bakery brownie to your Sweet Ritual shake. This is not an official menu item, but it’s officially become my favorite off-menu item at Austin’s one and only all-vegan ice cream parlor. All you have to do is pick your favorite shake (mine’s the salted caramel shake made with soft serve), and then add a brownie. Your brownie will be crushed into your shake, and served with a big straw to accommodate the bits of brownie you are about to eat/drink.

I’ve never met a shake from Sweet Ritual that I didn’t like, but the salted caramel always takes the cake for me. The combination of sweet and salty is so good, you might just want to grab a bottle to take home with you. The recent collaboration between Sweet Ritual and Capital City Bakery to make ice cream sandwiches has also been a hit in our household, and we’ve been known to grab a few to take home and store in the freezer for a rainy day.

Sweet Ritual rock star employee Nandy torching marshmallows for a Red Hot Vegans Sundae.While shakes and ice cream sandwiches are my go-to orders, I’m also a big fan of the chocolate waffle cones, and will order a sundae in a cone just to eat the cone. The RedHotVegans.com sundae (yeah, we have a sundae!), aka the s’mores sundae, is a favorite because it comes with a pyrotechnics show. After you place your order, stick around to watch the marshmallows get torched – and possibly burst into flames.

So next time you need to satisfy your sweet tooth, come visit this adorable old-fashioned ice cream parlor at 45th and Duval (inside JuiceLand). Whatever you decide to go with, be it a shake, sundae or ice cream sandwich, your inner child will thank you.

My favorite all-vegan Austin ice cream parlor and vegan hangout spot Sweet Ritual has debuted the RedHotVegans.com sundae! A tower of vegan soft serve topped with spicy chocolate sauce, graham crackers, and torched marshmallows. Watch your marshmallows get flambéed before your eyes! Fire + Dessert = Red Hot Vegan perfection. Thanks so much to Amelia and Valerie at Sweet Ritual for coming up with this masterpiece!
