  New Vegan Ice Cream Parlour   Nanashake (4750 Yonge St., Unit 134, 416-226-NANA (6262), www.nanashake.com) is Toronto’s first all vegan frozen dessert parlour! “We serve a unique and original range of vegan soft-serve and popsicle treats. All of our desserts are made using frozen bananas as a base and then depending on the flavour, we add a unique combination of nuts, fruits and other plant-based ingredients.” Some of these flavours include Rosey Pistachio, Minty Chocolate, Spiced Date, as well as classics such as Chocolate, Strawberry and Original. You can also load these flavours with toppings such as black bean brownies (from YamChops!), double chocolate ginger cookies, coconut shavings, raw almonds, crunchy cereal, and Oreos. Each flavour is also available in a frozen pop form, called NanaPops. Located at Yonge and Sheppard, Nanashake is a trek north of downtown, but for vegan and non-vegan dessert lovers alike, it’s worth the trip! Check out the website for more details on our flavours and their story, and find Nanashake on Facebook and Twitter.   New Vegan Baked Goods   Vegebitez (9-2460 Neyagawa… Read More
