Black-Owned Plant-Based Ice Cream Brand Now Delivers Straight to Your Door

A plant-based handcrafted ice cream brand, Cajou Creamery is now shipping nationwide. The brand founded by Chef Dwight Campbell and his wife Nicole Foster includes exotic flavors like baklava, Mexican cacao, and sweet potato pie.

Dwight and Nicole, who is a public health attorney, began their journey in the ice cream business experimenting on dairy-free ice cream for their two children who love ice cream, however, couldn’t enjoy it because they are lactose-intolerant. The couple expanded their menu and started unique flavors i.e. baklava, kulfi, Mexican cacao, cortadito, horchata, sweet potato pie, and blueberry cheesecake. All the brand’s products are made from scratch with the best high-quality ingredients that are healthy, chemical-free, dairy-free, and plant-based.

“People hear vegan or plant-based and think ick, like they are dirty words,” Nicole told Thrillist. “Or a common story we hear is, ‘I haven’t had ice cream in 20 years,’ and we are able to give them that experience. We hope people can connect to whole foods again and feel the joy that we put into making the product.”

Their products are sold in more than 35 stores and farmer’s market stands throughout Maryland and D.C. They are also set to open their first ice cream cafe in Baltimore, Maryland this year according to Black Business.
