“Sweet Action is out to make the world a better place through a love of ice cream,” is what they say on their website, and we’d have to say they’re doing a fantastic job of it thus far. Not only is their ice cream incredibly delicious, but it’s also good for the planet because they use wind power to create all of their ice creams. Dairy flavors include Blackberry Lavender, Cold Brew Coffee, and Salted Butterscotch, and vegan creations include Carrot Cake, Chocolate Ganache, and Coffee & Donuts. Check out their full selection and learn more about their ice cream-making process on the Sweet Action website.
No processed sugar, no artificial flavors or colors, and no additives. It’s all about natural goodness when it comes to the ice cream at Heaven Creamery, just over a mile from our Cherry Creek apartments. Known for their unique and sometimes “bizarre” flavors, this ice cream shop is always pushing the envelope. Get a little adventurous and try flavors like avocado, grasshopper-vanilla, or spinach and banana. They also have other sweet treats like milkshakes, churros, and waffles.
