The Brooklyn Creamery has already scooped out a name for itself through a range of high taste, low-calorie ice creams. But now they’ve hit a whole new level of dessert alchemy by creating a range of vegan-friendly, entirely dairy-free ice creams. You can dig into Chocolate and Coconut, Berry 3X, Double Shot Espresso, Acai Berry Banana, French Vanilla Bean and Lotta Chocolate flavours, with zero lactose, zero guilt, and a lot less calories than you’d expect. Which means you don’t have to wait for a messy break-up before you can justify finishing a pint in one go.
2. Enjoy a five-course Italian feast at Cipriani Yas Island
A series of Chef’s Table dining experiences are taking place at various locations in the capital this month as part of the Abu Dhabi Culinary Season.
