Yes! I tried their signature black ice cream (derived from coconut ash), and it was actually very good, and not overly sweet. Flavor profile on point, and also makes for a good "living my best life" post.

Love Il Laboratorio, that is my gelato pick in this city, priced pretty reasonably too for gelato.

Ice cream - will never refuse it but Ample Hills tends to be a bit heavy and sugary. Van Leeuwen is good but overpriced. I do like Oddfellows (their Buttermilk Honey Blueberry is probably my favorite of all ice cream), Morgenstern's, and Sundaes and Cones is pretty good too. Ice & Vice and Milk Made Tasting Room both make excellent ice cream but you have to go out of your way for them as both are quite off the beaten path

Hey, when you leave the Mr. Softee service area, like I did, you miss that janky truck with his crack music.

There is an interesting frozen ice-crem like desert at a shop on s: 120 Macdougal St, north of Bleecker. It's expensive around $6.75 for a cup

Mike & Dave's

non-dairy soft-serve ( thick density though) made of fruit with mix ins

https://mikeanddaveeats.com/current-menu/

"base from a variety of choices such as banana, cherry, strawberry, blueberry or peanut butter (pb) which is made with a powdered peanut butter (PB2 brand). Finally, you choose your mix-ins which vary in category from chocolate, crunch, sweet, nuts, fruit, salty, protein and seed/spice.
Optimum Nutrition Whey and Orgain"

Halo is the rage, we know the flavor is sos so but you can eat a whole pint at 280-360 calories

They achieve this with vegetable gums

Normally over $6 a pint Fairway recently had it on for sale for $3.99

_________________

Guar gum (also sometimes called gellan gum) is a common powdered product used to stabilize, emulsify and thicken the texture of certain foods and industrial products — such as bottled coconut or almond milk, yogurts, soups, fiber supplements, and body lotions. There are numerous uses for guar gum spanning several industries, and today it’s estimated that food-industry applications account for the vast majority (more than 70 percent) of the world’s supply of guar gum.

Considered to be a type of galactomannan, guar gum is produced in a similar manner to other natural seed gums that are created by milling the endosperm (seeds) of legumes or grains. While guar gum doesn’t necessarily provide many essential nutrients, it’s low in calories and high in fiber, which may help you feel fuller after eating. On the other hand, like other emulsifiers added to many processed foods, consuming guar gum may come with potential drawbacks, such as causing digestive issues and even triggering leaky gut reactions. It’s certainly not something you’d choose to purposefully consume a lot of, but in moderation it seems to be a better choice than other options.

There's also a supermarket brand of regular ice cream at Gristedes. Only a few traditional flavors available
La Salle is the name and $3.99 is printed on the label
They have been around a long time, the quality is fairly good, not Baskin Robbins crap

This! I was about to recommend Grom. It is a good place to buy an ice cream. I can't say it is the best in the city because obviously I haven't tried all of them.
