After my half-marathon on Saturday, I hopped in the car and made the 3-hour drive to Nashville to spend Memorial Day weekend with my partner Paul, who lives there part-time for work. He’s home in Memphis most weekends, but his work schedule wouldn’t allow him to come home this past weekend. So I went to him.

I’ll do a post tomorrow on all of the yummy Memorial Day eats from the weekend. But tonight, I want to talk about one very special place we visited in East Nashville on Sunday afternoon — Koko’s Plant-Based Ice Cream!

This is an all-vegan ice cream shop that I just discovered on Instagram about a month ago. It’s located next to Avo, my favorite high-raw vegan place, in the OneC1ty development (which is made out of shipping containers). This cute little shop makes all their own creams using a coconut base, and I’m here to tell ya now that THEY ARE AMAZING. They’re also nut-free for all y’all folks with allergies.

And they have vegan waffle cones! You get two flavors in a small order, so I opted for Mint Chip and Cookies & Cream.

Paul went with two scoops of Peaches & Cream (packed with real peaches!). Of course I tried some of his too, and it was creamy perfection.

Koko’s will definitely be a must-visit for every future trip to Nashville (and now I can’t wait to go back). Hey Koko’s, come to Memphis and open a shop here!
