Alchemy Creamery is NYC’s new, vegan ice cream cart. I first ran into them parked outside of Champs on a hot Sunday afternoon and had the pleasure of tasting their coconut-based Dark Chocolate Chai, Strawberry and Piña Colada. But their flavors are not always traditional: Roasted Red Pepper, Chamomile Citrus, Plantain Fosters and Basil Cucumber are a few of their more adventurous options. And they have Magic Wands: vegan cake balls, wrapped in ice-cream, on a stick!
