The popular Santa-Ana based chain, Nekter Juice Bar, is joining the ranks of restaurants offering up dairy-free ice cream alternatives. Now, they’re also going vegan with some tasty frozen desserts!

The starting flavor will be a coconut vanilla skoop, made of coconut milk, Madagascar vanilla, and agave. They’ll also be free of refined sugars and gluten. This new flavor will go hand in hand with new low-calorie ice cream summer food trends, making it sure to be a hit. It contains only 160 calories, making this a super light option.

This creamy new option joins the chocolate skoop option, which is also dairy-free. Beside these frozen treats, they’ve added a few more items to the menu; a pineapple mint refresh juice and skinny colada smoothie, all available until July 4th.

But! That’s not all! You can top off each ice cream dish with cacoa nibs, coconut flakes, strawberries, blueberries, hempseed granola, or gluten-free granola. Pour it all on for the ultimate vegan treat.
