Vegan Gelateria Conscious Creamery Opens Brick-and-Mortar in Sacramento

Summer is right around the corner, and there’s nothing better than a cold scoop of ice cream in the midst of a heat wave. If you’re looking for a delicious new gelato shop to carry you through the humidity, then Conscious Creamery is the perfect place for you. Serving up a diversity of artisanal small-batch all-vegan flavors, this shop can’t go wrong!

After falling in love with an all-vegan ice cream shop they visited on their 30th wedding anniversary in Europe, plant-based couple Andrea and Kevin Seppinni became inspired to try and replicate its success upon their return to America. With Andrea’s background in vegan food preparation and a mutual love for thick creamy Italian gelato, the idea to start Conscious Creamery was born. Putting on several pop-ups at farmers markets and outdoor events, the Seppinni’s business started out small. But, with a regular rotation of seasonal flavors made in small batches, it’s no surprise that Conscious Creamery discovered an increasing community demand for a more stationary brick-and-mortar location. Launching a permanent set-up in Oak Park on April 1st, Conscious Creamery now offers over-the-counter service and local delivery to the Sacramento area, in addition to a quaint outdoor sit-down area in front of their shop.

Conscious Creamery’s all-vegan menu has a variety of options, from single scoops to shakes, ice cream tacos, gelato bars, and a customized Waffle Sundae Special every Sunday—where you get to choose your own gelato flavor and sweet toppings to place on a fresh hot waffle. While still making classic Italian flavors like Stracciatella and Hazelnut, Conscious Creamery also offers unique flavors like Matcha Strawberry Ripple, Irish Creme, Cashew Cluster Caramel Swirl, and Leslie’s Rocky Road.

Conscious Creamery’s new location can be found at 3400 Broadway, Sacramento, CA 95817. Closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, ice cream fanatics can swing by this new spot on Wednesdays and Thursdays from noon-7pm, Fridays from noon-9pm, Saturdays from 11am-9pm, or on Sundays from 11am-6pm. If you’re interested in catering opportunities or just want to know more about Conscious Creamery’s story, visit ConsciousCreamery.com.

Last March, Chanice McClover-Lee, a 19-year old Howard University student, launched Baked by Chanice, a gourmet vegan treat company that specializes in cookies and custom cakes.

Canada’s All-Vegan Grocery Store, PlantX, Is Coming to San Diego

PlantX is a one-stop vegan retailer that sells everything from oat milks and canned goods to all-natural soaps and air-purifying indoor plants. They carry thousands of products across 350+ brands—meaning if it's vegan, it can most likely be found in one of their stores. If not, then it’s probably being loaded on a delivery truck to be stocked on shelves later in the week. Leading up to 2021, this West Vancouver-based business was only located throughout Canada, but it will soon make its United States debut in the Hillcrest neighborhood of San Diego.

The Best Vegan Dal Ever

This is my go-to dal. It’s creamy from the coconut milk, tangy from the lemon. It pulls sweetness from the tomatoes and sneaks in some surprise spinach (mostly because I wanted to add some greenery). It’s energizing and light, while remaining both grounding and comforting.
