With the increased popularity in dairy-free ice cream, we set out to create ice cream, made from scratch in Santa Fe that tastes great and appeals to the modern world’s dietary preferences. We have many classic flavors and several originals. We use almonds, cashews, and coconut for our bases to create creamy treats that ice cream lovers can enjoy. We believe in plant-based foods and the positive impact they have on the environment.

Our Story

Sunset Swirl was created to offer fun, dairy-free ice cream treats to people of all ages. I grew up enjoying ice cream and popsicles and some of my fondest memories include this sweet treat. Now that I have children of my own, I want them to enjoy these treats as well. However, most of my family is lactose intolerant and sensitive to traditional ice cream.

After trying some store-bought brands, I thought that it would be fun to offer a local ice cream that is made fresh right here in Santa Fe. With lots of help from the vegan ice cream shop Sweet Ritual, I learned the science of the dairy-free scoop.


Where to find us

We are located on the Historic Plaza in the heart of Santa Fe most days of the week. We will also be part of local events offsite. The best way to keep up with us is to follow us on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook for information about our hours and location. We operate from our Sunset Swirl pushcart so that we can be mobile and get involved in different events around the community. However, home base is on the plaza and we will be there from May-October. Look for us at Bandstand every Tuesday-Saturday starting in June.
