Virtuous Pie is a pizzeria and ice cream parlor that specializes in making inventive plant-based creations, including everything from its own cashew-based cheese to healthy frozen desserts.
Virtuous Pie's ice cream menu includes options like Hawaiian Vanilla, Peanut Butter Cookie Dough and Coffee + Donuts, as well as Turmeric + Black Pepper. The latter is described as "an anti-inflammatory treat" that boasts the bright coloring of yellow turmeric root.
The pairing of turmeric and black pepper is more than just a novel combination. When black pepper is added to turmeric, it increases the bioavailability of curcumin in turmeric, as well as provides a range of other health benefits.
The ice cream treats from Virtuous Pie can be enjoyed as part of a tasting flight, as well as by the scoop or pint.
