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.

Unlike a lot of scoop shops that primarily serve regular ice cream, with a plant based flavor or two on the side, plant based ice cream is the only thing they do, and they do it SO well.

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?

grain free raspberry donuts with a vanilla coconut glaze {paleo friendly, gluten free}

Grain free raspberry donuts with a vanilla coconut glaze! Crumbly in all the right ways, slightly springy in texture, studded with fresh raspberries, dipped in a luscious vanilla coconut glaze and sprinkled with tart dried raspberries.

YOU GUYS! THESE DONUTS! Crumbly in all the right ways, slightly springy in texture, studded with fresh raspberries, dipped in a luscious vanilla coconut glaze and sprinkled with tart dried raspberries because donuts like to look pretty, too!

These maaay actually qualify as my new best friend. Is that too pathetic of a statement? How about: good enough to make a NEW best friend. There we go. That sounds a little more social-normal. I don’t know about you guys but I’ve neverrr chosen donuts over friends… *blink blink*

But anyhooo… (that wasn’t awkward at all now was it.. ) 

I’m super excited to be bringing you this scrumptious recipe in collaboration with Windy City Organics and Dastony, a company that makes raw and stone ground nut and seed butters with 100% organic ingredients. They make everything from out-of-this-world-good coconut butter, to pine nut butter, brazil nut butter, pumpkin seed butter and good old standby’s like almond butter. 

And this company is so rad that they’ve offered to do a giveaway for a jar of your very own coconut butter (my personal fave!). It’s happening RIGHT NOW over on my Instagram page until September 12th.  Head on over there now to snag an entry!
