It's the early morning, it's summer and you're about to have a polyhedron Lego made of plant-based ice cream that you feel fine about eating for breakfast. This is not a lucid dream: It's just a Dream Pop.

The L.A.-based company turns superfoods into plant-based super treats, with flavors like coconut latte, vanilla matcha and mango rosemary. They've been stealing the hearts of West Coasters, dessert-loving celebrities and brands like Beats by Dre, Toms and Google. And now, on July 15 (just in time for National Ice Cream Day), the guys behind Dream Pops are rolling out nationwide shipping.

Your order will show up on your doorstep in 48 hours, still just as cold as when it left sunny California, thanks to special (and environmentally friendly) packaging. Plus, two new flavors are joining the already-deep lineup: Sky Blue Vanilla, flavored with ashwagandha and spirulina, and a passion fruit-jackfruit mash-up.

Dream Pops are the result of a former investment banker, a brand-building mastermind and a genius food scientist, all of whom are named David. (They're the three D's; cue joke about how this plays right into the unique 3-D-printed mold that gives Dream Pops their trademark shape.)

All are plant-based, less than 100 calories and sweetened with coconut blossom sugar. Their dreamy taste would otherwise belie these health-forward buzzwords, but this no-cream ice cream would have even the most die-hard Mister Softee fan fooled: happy summer, indeed.
