I can enjoy Ice Cream anytime of the year! What about you?

Graham and I wanted something sweet so we drove downtown to get an afternoon treat!

We are loving this crazy & bizarre Utah "winter".... its 50 degrees in February! Totally crazy!

Monkeywrench is an Ice Cream shop located in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City.

They make their own handcrafted ice cream, delicious baked goods & pastries, and also a few plant based milks!

It is 100% vegan, from coffee to ice cream and pastries!

There is also a craft espresso bar, with coffee, hot chocolate and assorted teas.

Monkeywrench offers a variety of plant based milks, but what I love the most is that they make their own in house Almond and Cashew milk. Amazingly delicious!!!

I enjoy the "Blend" milk, which is a combo of both.

I ordered a Matcha Latte, with the blended milk.

It has a strong vegetal taste mixed with a sweet aftertaste, yum!

I ordered an Orange Cranberry Biscotti to dip in my Matcha latte. 

Graham wasn't to sure about the Matcha flavor but he enjoyed eating the Biscotti!

Like I stated earlier, almost everything is made in-house.

Even their waffle cones, chocolate syrup, and caramel drizzle!

You are able to buy pints to go in any of their flavors.

Run in and pick one out of their freezer and you are all set for Netflix and chill on your couch!

We also tried their Brownie Al mode.

Its a double fudge brownie with chocolate chips, very chewy and mouthwatering!

We chose "Buds Cookie Dough" to put on top, and drizzled with their homemade caramel & chocolate sauce, garnished with chopped pecans.

I am excited to see what new flavors Monkeywrench comes out with next! 

I want to come back and try the "Early Grey" Ice Cream flavor next.

We were a bit amped up on sugar, so I let Graham run around the steps at the Gallivan Center before our drive home.

I feel so lucky to live close to such a great Vegan Ice Cream shop. Its clean and modern inside, has a friendly staff to help you out, but best of all, its delicious! 

Everyone I talk to can't get enough of this darling shop, so bring your friends and family, vegan or not they will love it! I promise, even my friends were surprised the ice cream was made out of nuts!!
