A Grain Free Review: Frankie & Jo’s Ice Cream Shop

I’m back with another grain free, allergen friendly, and paleo-aware restaurant review for you guys!

This one is gonna be tasty.

Super excited to share some details on my favorite plant based Seattle scoop shop, Frankie and Jo’s.

Frankie and Jo's - the newest, hottest (or coolest?) ice cream shop in Seattle, and for damn good reason. The hype IS all it’s made out to be, friends. Frankie and Jo's makes ice cream shops seem like the best new thing all over again AND reminds us of why we fell in love with them in the first place. Besides being a company that you wholeheartedly want to stand behind, they have also totally nailed that illusive perfect plant based scoop.

Also known as your new favorite ice cream obsession. Not even kidding.

Besides being a company that you wholeheartedly want to stand behind (read more about their mission HERE) they have also totally nailed that illusive perfect plant based scoop.

They use all plant and vegetable based ingredients for their ice cream, organic ingredients whenever possible, and everything is gluten free. EVEN THEIR WAFFLE CONES. That’s right, even their waffle cones. 

That’s a game changer, friends. Amirite?

There’s something about a fresh fruit crisp that is the very epitome of summer dessert charm. It’s a simple + humble treat that, when paired with a scoop of creamy (in this case, dairy free) vanilla ice cream is like the cherry on top of a perfect summer day. 

We’ve been doing a lot of that simple cooking these days as the light ebbs long into the evening hours (although we are on the other side of that trend now, it will still be awhile before we’re eating dinner in the dark).

Dinners on our deck with the cool evening breeze are embraced as often as possible, usually with a glass of rosé (for me) and a cold beer (for him) in hand. And when you top off some sublime al fresco dining with a bowl of fresh paleo cherry strawberry crisp, we’re talking pretty near perfection as far as simple home feasting is concerned.
