Portlanders are happy to indulge in ice cream all year round, but prime frozen dessert season has finally arrived. Thanks to the many frozen dessert shops in town, vegan and lactose-intolerant dessert lovers can have their pick of sweet treats like fruity popsicles, coconut ice cream, matcha shaved ice, and even a vegan McFlurry-style concoctions.
