Although I am a bit of a health nut, it is important to have balance and I love to have a sweet treat every now and again. Check out these options and if you're like me (Dairy free) don't worry I got you.

Little Man Ice Cream (multiple locations)

It wouldn't be a Denver food guide without it... my favorite is the Salted Carmel Peanut Butter Cup. They rotate their flavors and always have vegan options!

Botanical Bakery

Located in Birdsall Plant Shop, now serving coffee and beautiful pastries. Not the best to do work at but you can buy plants!

Van Leeuwen Creamery

The best vegan ice cream on the block. 

DANG soft serve

Little Man opened this place for all the Vegan soft serve options. Pro Tip: get a side of fries and dip them in.
