Sweet Ritual is a maker, wholesaler and retailer of vegan ice cream here in Austin, TX. They are one of the premier non-dairy ice cream makers in the state, making their ice cream from various bases, including: peanut butter, cashew, almond, coconut and pecan. They offer staples, along with seasonal flavors based on what is available from local farmers and producers.
They have been making and selling out of a storefront within Juiceland at 45th and Duval for over 3 years now.
They partner with local vegan and gluten free bakery Better Bites to make their ice cream sandwiches, local hot sauce maker Yellowbird for a unique chocolate/hot sauce ice cream and are looking for ways to buy whole nuts from local producers to make their own nut milk bases.
With a strong focus on sourcing, selling and giving back to our local community, Sweet Ritual is a wonderful example of plugging into the local community whenever possible.
