Earlier this month Erin Mckenna’s Bakery at Disney Springs started serving vegan ice cream again just in time for these hot summer months. And it tastes like Disney magic!
Erin Mckenna’s Bakery is an all vegan, gluten free, soy free and kosher bakery based out of New York City with a location in Disney Springs. This is a hot spot for those eating a plant based diet and also for families that have food allergies. They offer a variety of bakery items such as coffee cakes, tea cakes (the raspberry chocolate is amazing), cupcakes, brownies, bagels, eclairs and more.
Recently, they started offering hand scooped ice cream. It is perfectly creamy and delicious! I have tried the vanilla with salted caramel in a cup and the ice cream cookie sandwich with both vanilla and chocolate ice creams. My favorite so far has been the vanilla ice cream cookie sandwich. The ice cream with salted caramel topping was also really flavorful and creamy.
When I used to go to Disney World with my family as a child, my mom and I would eat a chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich together on Main Street from the Main Street Ice Cream Shop. It’s a special memory enjoying a special treat by the castle with family. This ice cream sandwich tasted just like my childhood memory of ice cream sandwiches on Main Street. Let’s hope they start offering this option in more locations like inside the parks! (Fingers crossed.)
Here’s the “scoop” on their current ice cream situation as this is written on June 15, 2019:
- The ice cream is hand-scooped and coconut based (ingredient list for vanilla below)
- You can get scooped ice cream in Small, Medium or Large cups
- They have toppings available to make it a sundae
- Both chocolate and vanilla flavors are currently available
- They do sell out occasionally, so it may be best to check before going
- Pricing list in photos below
I hope you’re able to try this “nice cream” and love it as much as I do!
And then be sure to enjoy your time at Disney Springs as well. Disney Springs is an outdoor shopping mall where it’s free to go and free to park! There are many restaurants and fun shops to check out. There is often live entertainment, usually in the evenings. You’ll even find some fun photo opportunities here!
Lastly, a couple money saving tips: 1. A cup and a cookie or brownie bite ordered separately would be less expensive than a cookie sandwich. 2. If you’re a Disney Annual Passholder, remember to ask for your discount!
