Little Bean was created to change the world.
This humble chickpea has a big dream—to turn the way people think about food upside down.
To make the things we all love to eat,
good for us too.
To make skeptics believers, one taste at a time.
I’m totally not ice cream
Healthier, more sustainable food is an idea whose time has come.
Little Bean is based entirely on the non-dairy, gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free, non-GMO, sustainably - produced, environmentally-friendly chickpea.
So, as more people are having issues with food—allergies, GMOs,
environmental sustainability —
Little Bean has only one issue—picking your favorite flavor.
Little Bean is so full of potential that every last bit of the chickpea is used; nothing goes to waste.
We ‘milk’ chickpeas to create our frozen treats.
What’s leftover is refined into the gluten-free flour that makes our waffle cones and cookies that much healthier.
We get it, maybe ice cream isn’t the first thing you think of at 8:30 am. No worries. We are also a gluten-free bakery with pastries, breads and other sweet and savory treats. We have espresso and lattes with delicious chickpea milk too!
As fun to say as
they are to eat.
