We all wish ice cream was a healthy food, so we could enjoy it without the guilt. If only it were possible to get a serving of vegetables in a bowl of ice cream, right?

What if we told you that this apparent pipe dream is more realistic than you think?

Ice cream store Salt & Straw, already known for their unique and unusual flavors, has a new line of vegetable ice creams (the “Veggies You Crave” line) that contain bits of actual vegetables like corn, spinach, fennel, and more.

If you’re worried about taking a bite of ice cream only to be met with an unexpected savory taste, don’t be; many of the flavors, like the Spinach Cake with Chocolate Tahini Fudge and Carrot Cake Batter, have bits of cake, fudge, and/or candied nuts so they still have plenty of sweetness.

Of course, there's nothing stopping you from buying and ice cream maker to create your own unique frozen flavors instead.

There are also spicier, tart, and fall-flavored options, for those who don’t have as big of a sweet tooth. And there’s even a vegan option (Red Chili Curry & Makrut Lime Crispy Rice) for those who don’t consume animal products.

And don’t worry about missing out even if there isn’t a Salt & Straw store near you. All of these veggie ice creams can be bought online and shipped to you so you can enjoy your ice cream without guilt. Well, almost.
