The Six Best Ice Cream Specials: It May Be Fall, But It’s Still Hot!

The Six Best Ice Cream Specials: It May Be Fall, But It’s Still Hot!

It may be fall, but the heat doesn’t look to be leaving any time soon. While we most definitely endorse ice cream any time of the year, there’s something about cooling down with a cold dessert that makes it feel like summertime all year round. We found six ice cream specials that are guaranteed to deliciously take the edge off even the hottest L.A. days.

COLD ROLLED ICE CREAM

The artisanal menu choices at Cold Rolled Ice Cream are not only IG-worthy, they are exceptionally delicious. In particular, White Chocolate Rose with its rose water base, white chocolate drizzle, and dried rose buds, is the most exquisite example of the create-your-combo Thai rolled ice cream system.

LN2

It might be a challenge to save some room for dessert after seeing the pizza menu at LN2, but trust us: save some room for dessert. It’s a build your own sundae opportunity with nth level ingredients. If you are a strawberry fan, try the strawberry chamomile ice cream with whipped cream and a fresh berry.

MILK

All hail Christina Tosi, the award-winning pastry chef who opened the most joyful cake-n-cookie-n-cream shop in Los Angeles. The whole experience is sweet. Definitely get yourself a cookie but go for the immediate satisfaction of Cereal Milk ™ Soft Serve, the creamiest of the ice creams, topped with a good dose of morning crunchies.

RONAN

Ronan makes its own ice cream, which means it’s about as fresh, organic, and delicious as ice cream should be. But then it gets extra, packaged with even more of the good stuff. Che Fico pairs a pure vanilla ice cream with grilled figs and aged balsamic. Beach Bum matches banana ice cream with tiki cake, almond candy, and mint.

UBATUBA

Açai, the flavorful and healthtastic Brazilian berry that is all the rage, is star at Ubatuba Açai. You get to choose its co-stars from an equally flavorful and healthtastic menu of add-ons including fresh fruits (like bananas, kiwis, mangos, and blueberries), dried fruits (coconut, goji, dates), nuts, nut butters, yogurt, and more.

UMEDA

It’s always a good idea to follow the chef’s lead when exploring a menu. Chef Ume of Umeda has a fave: the mango fiji water shaved ice, with vanilla ice cream, fresh mango, and mango sauce. Looking for something more savory? Try the version with red beans and green tea sauce.
