Cape Town-based artisan ice cream store Unframed is launching 24 imaginative new flavours for the summer season. 

Summer and ice cream are a match made in heaven, but Unframed is taking the union a step further by introducing 24 new flavours from the summer season from November to February 2019.

Honey (dairy) and Almond (vegan)

Some of the more unusual flavour combinations include Mango Passion Fruit Cayenne Pepper, Pineapple Red Pepper Lime, Chocolate Passion Fruit, Avocado Green Apple & Lime, Raspberry Beetroot, Strawberry Celery, Chocolate Tahini, Kefir Amarena (cherry) and Caramel Miso.

Pineapple Red Pepper Lime (sorbet) and Pistachio (vegan)

Apricot Bergamot (sorbet) and Avocado Green Apple & Lime (sorbet)

Best of all, in line with the growing demand for dairy-free frozen dessert options, a whopping 20 of Unframed’s 24 flavours will be suitable for vegans – either made with a nut-base or fruit sorbet. As Yann Rey, Unframed’s owner, explains:

“For this season, we focused on summery fruits for our new sorbets and worked very hard to create unbelievable vegan versions of some of our most popular dairy flavours to keep all of our loyal plant-based ice cream lovers happy.”

For now, Unframed is only located in Cape Town with a branch in trendy Kloof Street and at the V&A Waterfront. Hopefully those visiting the Mother City for the holidays will take advantage of the opportunity to try these innovative and cooling treats.
