Gela & Vegan Ice Cream

Gela, Rehov Mahane Yehuda

100% vegan ice cream. Yeah I said it.

This place also doubles as a coffee shop, sells ice cream floats, and chocolate.

I’ll reluctantly admit this picture is from the Gela in Machane Yehuda in Jerusalem, but the one in Florentin in Tel Aviv is perfect. Best ice cream I’ve had here: Snickers.

Can you imagine the dissapointment when after so much vegan Soy Caramel Cookies ice cream aka Lotus ice cream I realized there was oil in it? I emailed Cookeez to ask, who confirmed no oil, and the nicest people at Golda by Abraham told me the same. As did the people at Anita in Sarona. Well yes they don’t add oil, but they add Lotus cookies which are full of oil. For some reason, it doesn’t bother me when I eat it- maybe because there is so little in it. I ate so much ice cream when I first got here- bugging out that ice cream was made without oil. Of course, I know it can be done, since my favorite ice cream in Los Angeles, Yoga-Urt, does almost every flavor (minus maybe one) without oil. Still, Israel does as well, except when they add the cookies in.

Sorbet can be found almost anywhere: the most delicious one being banana date (totally oil free and awesome). But nothing compares to creamy ice cream that isn’t sorbet.
