First Review by Yolanda

Love at first lick! - Edit

So thrilled for find actual vegan ice cream rather than a sobert. The wide range of favors was awesome, great creamy texture and beyond happy with it. Feel in love with a salted caramel toffee popcorn, over chocolate, very surprised and shocked, but so good!

Pros: Creamy vegan ice cream, Good mix of favors to choose, Vegan waffle cone

Cons: Hard to find from the road it sits behind trees.

Vegan whipped cream! - Edit

Situated a few streets back from the sea, Utopia Ice is a must for Christchurch ice cream lovers visiting the seaside suburb of Sumner. This ice cream shop with a juice bar is in the heart of Sumner, just opposite the library and community centre. They use local and seasonal produce to make their handmade and unique flavour combinations which change regularly. One-half the cabinet is vegan with around 4 sorbets and 4 coconut-based vegan ice creams. Examples include lavender and apricot sorbet and coconut, strawberry, and lemongrass ice cream. An exciting option is to have whipped coconut cream piped on the top of your ice cream for just $1 more plus another $1 for a generous sprinkling of roasted and chopped hazelnuts. This is the only ice cream shop in New Zealand that I am aware of that offers vegan whipped cream. (And I have been to most of them). The cones are vegan and they can also make vegan waffles with ice cream. Hot chocolate and chai can be made with plant milk (soy, almond, coconut) will warm you up on a cold day.
You can take your ice cream to eat on the beach or enjoy it in their garden dining area.

Pros: gorgeous flavours, vegan whipped cream, great location
