Whit’s Frozen Custard in Clintonville just entered the vegan non-dairy frozen dessert market this spring to the excitement across Columbus of vegans and those who are allergic, lactose intolerant or otherwise need to avoid dairy products. At this time, the Clintonville Whit’s offers one option: coconut-based vanilla. (Note: not all Whit’s locations are on board yet, so call ahead, verify, and ask them to carry it at their location near you if they don’t already have it.)

Whit’s also carries flax milk for those who enjoy shakes. The cool thing about Whit’s is that you can make their frozen dessert into whatever wondrous variety your taste buds are inspired to create. They have a fantastic assortment of fruits and berries as well as staples like peanut butter and Oreo-style cookies that are vegan.

Other exciting vegan community events include the always happening It’s All Natural Summer Vegan Street Food Pop-up Market is on Saturday, June 23rd at 11am at the Ching Ter Maitreya Temple located at 2891 E. Dublin Granville Rd. Columbus, Ohio. It is also Comfest time again (June 22, 23rd and 24th) and VeganShift’s 8th Annual “The Vegan Connection” will be happening again on Sunday, June 24th at 11:30am at The Solar Stage. Check out the Columbus Vegan Meetup for more details to get connected to vegan community and events. A veganshift is urgent, a veganshift is possible, a veganshift is happening. Love life, live vegan.
