If you want your sweet treat in a slightly more portable form, one of these three slurpable concoctions will do the trick.
Tickle Pickle, Northside
The rock and roll shakes at this Northside burger joint—Flan Halen (strawberry), Goobie Brother (peanut Oreo), Vanilla Ice, Chocolate Delight, and Oreo Speedwagon—can all be made vegan using housemade coconut milk ice cream. They’re not as thick as the dairy versions, but they’re just as tasty.
Buzzed Bull Creamery, Over-the-Rhine
Liquid nitrogen flash-freezes fresh ingredients to create almost instant ice cream at this Over-the-Rhine spot, where you can kick things up a notch by adding booze. With custom options and a menu of customer favorites, there’s plenty to savor; we like the smooth sweetness of the honey bourbon pecan shake.
That classic UDF striped cup does, in fact, contain multitudes. Choose your ice cream, choose your milk, add malt or hot fudge, create something new. Peanut butter chip with chocolate milk is a good start, but it’s just the beginning. What new combo will you create?
