No beef with taste of vegan ice cream
WHAT do you call a vegan at Beef Week? Hungry.
Kashina Crabbe, 30, and Katie Eves, 24, of Rock Valley are vegans and when people are tucking into a steak during Casino’s Beef Week there won’t be many non-meat options for them.
Instead they will be selling vegan ice cream outside Zeebras Cafe in Barker St. Their ice cream has a traditional vanilla flavour and the creaminess comes from coconut cream rather than dairy products, Kashina said. Space Bars Ice Creamery is a new business and this is their first time at Beef Week.
“Our recipes are old recipes and show that vegan food can be creamy and tasty,” Kashina said.
Kashina and Katie’s vegan beliefs mean they “don’t use animal products in food or support animal exploitation”. “I can’t condone Beef Week and rodeos events and I don’t expect everyone to agree with me but if people want to have a conversation about veganism, come to the ice creamery.”
