Whipped Urban Dessert Lab
The 20 Best Ice Cream Shops in NYC
With up to 75% of the African American community being lactose intolerant, sisters Courtney Blagrove & Zan B.R. initially founded Whipped Urban Dessert Lab as an ice cream option for those in search of dairy-free choices. The result is a creamy and wonderful treat made solely from oat-milk and offered in menu items like Salted Pecan (coated with crushed salted pecans) and Strawberry Shortcake (coated with strawberry crumble & strawberry sauce). And if you’re looking to avoid the perpetual long lines at the Orchard Street spot, pints of the Oat Milk Ice Crème are also available for nationwide shipping. Plus, for fans of interactive family/children’s retail store and play space, CAMP, through mid-September the two companies are teaming up for three exclusive flavors—Birthday Sprinkle Surprise, Sensational Strawberry Shortcake, and Pretzel Crunch Magic—which will only be served at the NYC location of CAMP on Fifth Avenue.
