All Mixed-Up, in Bend, Oregon

All Mixed-Up, in Bend, Oregon

I’m visiting my family in Bend, Oregon.

Ever since my niece and nephew were little, my sister has used the words “treat land” to describe dessert.

Last evening, after our dinner of homemade veggie burgers, roasted cauliflower, and baked beans, the 9 year old said she knew exactly what she wanted for “T.L.”

She suggested we all take a stroll to the frozen yogurt shop, where they offer non-dairy sorbets.  Who could say no to that, on a pretty spring evening?  All Mixed-Up is located in Northwest Crossing.

Lucky for vegans, All Mixed-Up has a section for non-dairy sorbets.  You can pick between two flavors or swirl the two together.  Last night they had coconut and strawberry lemonade flavors.  The selection changes from time to time.  You can also pick some toppings.  The fresh fruit, chopped nuts and a few other items are vegan.  The price for your treat is determined by weight.

I hid some strawberries and blackberries in the bottom of my bowl and I opted for a little of each yogurt flavor.  I sprinkled the coconut side with some chopped peanuts, mochi cubes and an Oreo style cookie half.  Delicious!

Final tip:

All Mixed-Up also has vegan soups.

I’ll have to go back for the soup at another time.

Today we passed through Kelowna on the way to Big White Ski Resort.

We’ve never been to this part of Canada before.  Of course, every trip away from home is a fun opportunity to check out new vegan/vegetarian restaurants.  That’s definitely part of the fun of being vegan!

In Kelowna, we were excited to find (on Happy Cow) a completely vegan restaurant.  Spoiled!  I have a vegan life of abundance, not deprivation.

We ordered some pan-fried dumplings for an appetizer.

For dinner, we split an order of sweet & sour veggie meat.

It was very dessert-like, actually!

We also split an order of stir-fried vegetables.  I adore broccoli and cauliflower.

Along with the bill, we were served a small “pineapple donut.”  YUM!
