Vegan soft serve/fro yo
Does anyone know of someplace in/near west l.a. where they have soft serve substitutes for ice cream or frozen yogurt that's vegan? I looked at some earlier posts about non-dairy soft serve, but I'm not sure if most non-dairy soft serve (available at some fro-yo places) is vegan. Does anyone know whether those non-dairy options are vegan, or if not, where vegan soft serve might be available?
Contact Studio Yogurt. Yes, it's in Studio City (ew, like, the *VALLEY*) but they have non-dairy yoghurt and I'm fairly sure it's vegan. There's also a place on Main Street Santa Monica near Schatzi on Main that has it, if it's still open -- it has been many years since I lived in the People's Republic.
The compounding pharmacy/hippie food bar next to Holloway Cleaners in WeHo on Santa Monica just put up a sign offering vegan non-dairy raw "ice cream." Haven't tasted it but it seems like it might be what you ware looking for.
Orean's in Pasadena has fast-food style soft serve that they've long maintained is non-dairy. However, I have read somewhat credible reports that the soft-serve does indeed contain some dairy.
Let me know how the non-dairy stuff at Big Chill is - I live near there and keep meaning to try it.
