I scream, you scream, we all scream for ...bananas? Wait, that's not right. Oh yeah, ice cream season is fast approaching and if you’re looking for a healthy way to indulge with your favourite frozen treat, look no further. Toronto’s Nanashake is serving up a variety of frozen goodies made from fruit and you won’t be able to tell the difference.
The odds are we all have one friend who’s trying to go vegan, or at the very least trying to live a healthier lifestyle.
And, if you’re not along for their journey, it can make going out for food a little complicated.
But don’t put a hold on your sunny day ice cream dates just yet.
Between classic Nanashakes, ice cream bars, cakes, soft-serve cones, and more, even dairy lovers will go bananas for these frosty desserts.
Just as smooth, creamy, and flavourful as ice cream but without all the dairy, gluten, and guilt.
And, depending on the toppings you choose, you could even call this breakfast.
Now, that’s what ice cream dreams are made of.
So, if you’re looking for the sweetest vegan treats, you totally need to give Nanashake a try.
Seriously, you’ll fall head over banana peels for this place.
With a sign that says “be your own banana” and some cutesy monkey decor, the inside of this shop looks just as good as the shakes.
In fact, even the cups are pretty adorable and plastered with fun facts.
For example, we learned humans share over 50% of their DNA with bananas? Who knew?
With flavours like rosewater pistachio, pumpkin spice, strawberry funshine, mango madness, and so many more, there’s a little something for everyone’s taste.
You can also enjoy toppings like cookies, fruit, sprinkles, marshmallows, just to name a few.
You can even buy this stuff by the tub if you like. All of the desserts are vegan and gluten-free, but they do contain nuts.
So whether you're looking to treat your vegan bestie to a fun date, or just want a healthy dessert alternative, this is the place.
