My Top Favorite LA Ice Cream Spots

Up until I became an adult (so about a few months ago) I’ve always said ice cream was my favorite food. The inner child in me still has a soft spot, literally, for ice cream. So it doesn’t hurt that Los Angeles has several amazing ice cream spots that put a twist on the typical  scoop.  Here’s my top 3:

1. Jeni’s in Los FelizThe mission statement on Jeni’s website reads “We are absolutely devoted to making better ice creams and bringing people together.” That’s pretty much my life motto (sort of.) The first time I went despite being known for lines out the door, it was totally empty and the guy working encouraged me and my friend to try as much as possible while we could.

Despite the employees being super friendly, the ice cream is no fuss and the ingredients are premium (they have an Intelligentsia Black Cat Espresso flavor.) Also, since the flavors are so good, they don’t force you to choose just one.  Jeni’s offers an option to do two half scoops instead of one.

My weakness: The Milkiest Chocolate & Salty Caramel or Intelligentsia Black Cat Espresso

2. Salt & Spoon in Larchmont. If you’re looking to take a walk on the wild side of ice cream, make your way to Salt & Spoon in Larchmont.  They mix unsuspecting flavors like “Avocado & Strawberry Sherbert” and make something amazing.  Be open minded when looking at their menu; they’re also sample friendly so you can try a few until you find the right flavors for your taste buds.  It won’t take long.

3. Afters. There’s a sign at After’s in Chino Hills about something involving a diet and counting calories. The rule is: don’t do it.  It’s necessary to not think about the extra pounds before you indulge in ice cream stuffed inside of a homemade donut with toppings on top. But I will absolutely say it’s worth it. If you’re ever looking for a “treat yourself” dessert you will definitely find it here.

My weakness: The Milky Bun with Jasmine Milk Tea ice cream and Fruity Pebbles.
