Frugii Dessert Laboratory is often touted as having some of the best icecream and most creative desserts in Canberra.
Thankfully vegans don’t have to miss out! The sorbets on offer are usually vegan and there is always at least two on offer. The flavours change every couple of days and range from single fruit flavours (such as peach, mango, lime, berry) to the more interesting such as strawberry & balsamic vinegar, watermelon mint and apple cinnamon and to the more alcoholic gin and tonic, cider, champagne and shiraz. The range seems to be endless.
In addition to the sorbets there are also a couple of vegan desserts. Frugii desserts are amazing to look at and also to taste. The first vegan offering coffee caramel creamaux, banana cheesecake, and a chocolate coconut mousse finished with cacao nibs. It is an amazing balance of flavours and textures and when first launched a weekend’s worth of desserts sold out in a night. Their second vegan dessert is a cherry ripe offering with layers of chocolate and cherry with a pipette of cherry sauce!
