Market stall of the week : You and Me

Let’s face it, cute little dessert dates just aren’t as simple as the movies make them out to be. That romantic ice cream scene in The Notebook definitely wouldn’t have been as adorable if Noah was a gluten intolerant vegan when Allie shoved her cone into his face. So in a real world where it’s becoming ever so common to be intolerant of gluten, animal products and the dreaded refined sugar, what on earth are we to do? Merely much upon carrot sticks while the couple on the other side of the cafe shares a decadent strawberry sundae? Mindful munchers, it’s time to raise your dessert spoon in delight because we’ve found a sweet treat that is worth screaming about! The clever chefs at You and Me are here to rescue you from your dessert disasters with their amazingly creamy coconut soft serve topped with the scrumptious treats of your dreams! Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, what if we told you that they’re actually healthy too? The magical team behind You and Me have used locally sourced, fresh ingredients to create healthy versions of our favourite childhood classics and bring flavour to the tastebuds and nostalgia to the soul. It doesn’t get much better than sharing a banana split topped with creamy coconut soft serve, cacao ‘magic-frost,’ choc crumble, fresh fruit and ‘raspberry bliss!’ These frozen delights are so delicious you’d have no idea they were gluten, dairy and refined sugar free! So switch up your date night and head on down to the Boundary Street Markets for the dessert of your dreams from You & Me. Why not give it a swirl? Words by Caroline Tully
