Vegan Guide Lisbon – Part 1: Eat

Ice Cream

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love ice cream. To make sure you don’t have to miss out on delicious vegan ice cream in Lisbon either, we present you the most vegan-friendly ice cream shops in Lisbon.

The ice cream parlor FIB – il vero gelato italiano (number 16 on the Vegan Map) is located a bit outside, but the way there is definitely worth it! Here, all vegan varieties are clearly marked and include not only fruit sorbets, but also changing dairy ice creams, such as for example coffee ice cream based on rice milk.

Whereas in the heart of the old town is the Gelateria Fragoleto (number 18 on the Vegan Map). Again, there is a particularly wide choice of vegan dairy ice cream varieties and fruit sorbets, which are also marked. Ask necessarily for more vegan flavors, as not all are on display! Unique is here that you can take home the ice cream wrapped up in a Styrofoam ball.

Also at Gelato Mú (number 32 on the Vegan Map) the vegan varieties are marked and depending on the season. When we were there, besides fruit sorbets there was also avocado ice cream and chocolate sorbet, both very delicious! In addition to the main branch where the ice cream is made, there is another one at the Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara.

Gelato Davvero (number 33 on the Vegan Map) is not only scattered several times in Lisbon, but also a few more times in all of Portugal. Here the allergens are clearly marked, whereby the vegan ice creams are quickly found. When we were there, there were “only” fruit sorbets. The available varieties depend on the season. Cone lovers will rejoice, because they are vegan ones available here.

In the “ice cream office” Oficina do Gelado (number 23 on the Vegan Map) in the Parque das Nações they unfortunately don’t have any vegan types of dairy ice cream, but very tasty fruit sorbets. The employees know which flavors are vegan, and who knows – maybe they’ll have some vegan dairy ice cream varieties someday!

We really loved Tao as it was so cheap and tasty! We’re adapting some Portuguese recipes to make them vegan friendly for you to try at home. Check us out if you’re interested!
