Summer is so close we can taste it. Literally.
Beat the heat one lick at a time with some of the best ice cream in town, from familiar abuela-style flavors and totally chill sorbets to bowls of molecular magic.
Here, in no particular order, are our favorite ice cream shops in Miami.
? Azucar Ice Cream Company in Calle Ocho
The Abuela Maria (single scoop $3.50)--vanilla ice cream mixed with red guava paste, cream cheese and galletas Maria--is becoming a local favorite. The Pinot Noir sorbet feels just as good as that end of the day glass of wine.
? Wall's Old Fashioned Ice Cream in Glenvar Heights
It's hard to miss this groovy old-fashioned ice cream parlor. The flavors are what you'd expect from good old American-style ice cream. Don't miss out on Tom's homemade fudge; chewy praline FTW ($12.80 for 6 pieces).
? Quarterman's in Downtown
Take a stroll with a triple cone ($6.50) stacked with your favorite flavors; treat your date to an after-dinner malt ($5.50) or float ($6.50).
? The Frieze Ice Cream Factory in Miami Beach
Nothing beats the seaside heat like these homemade vegan-friendly sorbets, which change daily. And did we mention the champagne sorbet?
? Whip 'N Dip in South Miami
One of the oldest ice cream joints in town still rocks the locally sourced mango ice cream (small $3.70). Feeling overzealous? Opt for your own signature sundae served in a sand pail ($30).
? Gelateria 4D in Multiple Locations
Gelato: it tastes as sexy as it sounds. Nutella, strachiatella, pretty much anything that ends in ella works for us.
? Chill-N Nitrogen Ice Cream in Pinecrest
Here's chemistry that anyone can love. The texture is unbeatable! Pick a base and mix-'ns, then watch the liquid nitrogen transforms fresh ingredients into velvety goodness. Got a "chilln' equation"? Post it on Instagram for a shout out. A new location just opened in Adventura!
