Vegan Creamery FoMu Opens in Massachusetts

The dairy-free ice cream shop adds to the vegan options in Allston’s Union Square.

Recently opened FoMu Alternatice Ice Cream & Café is the latest vegan hot spot for dairy-free foodies in the Allston, MA area. This all-vegan parlor offers coconut-based ice cream and sorbet sweetened with agave and unrefined sugar. Some of the more extravagant and creative flavors on the menu include salted caramel, pistachio cardamom, and Thai peanut. The menu items are constantly being updated, as FoMu aspires to concoct flavors that will never fail to surprise its customers. The new parlor also offers locally roasted coffee, healthy smoothies, and Veggie Galaxy vegan and gluten-free cookie and cinnamon rolls. FoMu joins two other neighborhood vegan-friendly eateries, Peace o’ Pie and Grasshopper.
