Portlanders are happy to indulge in ice cream all year round, but prime ice cream season has finally arrived. Thanks to the many ice cream shops and seasonal pop-ups in town, vegan and lactose-intolerant frozen dessert lovers can have their pick of sweet treats like chickpea ice cream, macadamia soft serve, and fruity popsicles.
While almost every ice cream shop in town offers at least one vegan scoop, this map doesn’t include obvious spots like Salt & Straw and Fifty Licks. There’s no need; Portland has a number of entirely dairy-free brands serving standout frozen treats. Instead, the following locales are either exclusively vegan or those with unique offerings, like ice cream tacos or ube shave ice with coconut foam, to help stay cool all summer long. For dairy ice cream, this map may be a better fit.
As always, the shops on this map are not ranked; rather, they’re organized geographically.
