I remember the days when you asked for a soya latte in Starbucks they gave you that pitiful “oh, you’re following the fashion trend” look. Then topped it off with “Would you like whipped cream on that?!”. The answer is NO, ffs. I’m lactose intolerant, not restricting myself for the sake of it. So let it be known that that is why all my recipes on the blog are made with milk alternatives, rarely feature cheese or any other dairy products.
Imagine my delight when I get an email inviting me to the launch of a “free from” cafe which would be serving up shakes, ice cream and fro yo – all dairy free!
Address: Wardour Street, Soho (London)
With Yorica!, everyone’s invited to indulge without worry; the yummy range of desert delights not only taste incredible – the all natural ingredients are also entirely free from all main allergens, including dairy, lactose, gluten, nuts and egg – and EVERYTHING on the menu is completely Vegan.
I tried pretty much everything on the menu in one evening (pictured above is the cookies and cream milkshake topped with coconut whipped cream). I also had a warm, nut free peanut butter ice cream milkshake. Yup. Take a moment to digest that.
Hello beetroot ice cream (pictured above). Psychedelic decor and a selfie wall.
Chilling in the hanging chair.
I know where I’ll be hanging out all summer…
Do you suffer from any food intolerances?!
