Gluten-free Casein-free Fresh Ice Cream!

Today a fun (but not gluten-free) blogger posted about Lula’s Sweet Apothecary in New York, New York. Since so many gluten-free people pass through this great town, I thought I’d let you know about Lula’s although as a disclaimer you should know I’ve never been over there. According to The Girl Who Ate Everything:

Don’t let the diet-friendly designation deter you if you’re omnivorous (easy to say, those desserts don’t always have the best reputations for being delicious)—it’s good even to those of us whose stomach acids can tear through everything.

You can hop over to her blog post to see a picture of Today’s Flavors (on July 5th). She ate nut-based orange creamsicle plus ginger molasses ice cream, so you can imagine that Lula’s ice cream flavors will satisfy every crazed whim you have. The Girl Who Ate Everything writes:

The ice creams were smooth, creamy, not too sweet, and strongly flavored. Orange creamsicle tastes like orange creamsicle! Ginger molasses tastes like…well, mostly molasses, but it’s still good. Better than a lot of typical dairy-based ice cream? I’d say yes.

It seems from the menu that about half, or more than half, of all the ice creams are gluten-free, designated clearly for ease of use. If you check out Lula’s online menu, you can see for yourself that they have several clearly marked gf sauces (hot fudge, peanut butter, and marshmallow), almost all of their syrups are also gluten-free, and they offer six gluten-free toppings including gluten-free cookies! Pretty much gluten-free heaven, as far as I can tell.

In addition to simple ice cream, they sell flavored sodas (seltzer plus syrup), New York egg cream (“no egg, no cream”), shakes and malts (with rice milk), sundaes, flurries, and banana splits.

If any of our readers have eaten at Lula’s, we are eager to hear your report!

  1. I really love your site and all you are sharing here. This is very helpful! I work part-time for the author, Tina Turbin who has a Gluten-free site and Gluten-Free blog. I really think you two should be introduced. I know she recommends other bloggers on her blog page in a special section and I think you would be one she would most definitely be interested in referring. Could you e mail me back please and let me know if you would be interested in referring her link and her referring yours. I will let her know and you two can take it from there. She also reviews products and companies, does interviews and writes numerous Articles. I really think you’d like her! Thanks, Rosie

  2. hey there! so glad you’re spreading the word about Lula’s. it’s INCREDIBLE!!!!! who would’ve thunk that nut-based ice cream could be so delicious. i’ve had the rocky road and i keep going back for more. it’s about $3.75 a cone, yes, a gluten-free cone! and you can sample anything you want! highly recommended and glad you’re sharing the info.

  3. I hope to be able to try these if I ever get back to NYC! The comment of it not being too sweet and strong flavored reminds me of gelato in Italy! And what a treat to have a malted shake not made with barley malt! Once again NYC proves it’s worthy of the title best place in the U.S. to be gluten-free!!!
