Little Knox & Aya is turning seven, and to celebrate they are holding a free ice cream event from 11am–1pm this Sunday 19 Feb at Yum Yum cafe New Brighton, with music by Sheldon Leiberman.

Horst Thomson says, ‘Seven years ago we began with the mission to make Australia’s best coconut ice creams. Success, for us, uses real food, organic ingredients, unlike the chemical soups used to construct most commercial ice creams. During these years we have grown into our own solar-powered kitchen in Billinudgel, produced Australia’s first compostable ice cream tubs, and launched our powerfully probiotic coconut yogurt and cultured butter.

‘Our most popular three flavours – Chocolate RunnyHunnyComb, Macadamia Fudge Brownie, and Raspberry & Dark Choc Chunk – are hard to beat, but we are always looking to create new seasonal or collaborative ice cream experiences for our community.

‘We are eternally grateful to the local community for supporting our dream to create and share great dairy-free foods that support the wellbeing of humans and ecosystems.

‘As a small token of gratitude we offer free scoops and the chance to try our new seasonal Watermelon & Mint, and Hazelnut Fudge Superfeast with Reishi and Chaga, this Sunday.’
