The Heat is ON! Evidently Mother Nature swapped her seasons on us, giving Angelenos a chilly summer and a smoking hot autumn so far. No complaints here! This just means I get to eat more of my favorite dessert... gelato!
The other day I finally checked out SCOOPS, a charming little gelateria near Silver Lake that serves both traditional gelato as well as vegan, gluten and lactose-free options made with soy milk. This gelato holds true to the Italian tradition of using milk instead of cream, which results in a markedly lighter fair. This fresh rendition is incredibly desirable during a heat-wave (and a diet, for those counting cals)!
In addition to great consistency, Scoops boasts unique and original flavors like Mascarpone Butterfinger, Honey Lavendar, Red Velvet Cake (with cake and icing in it!) and their best selling "Brown Bread," which is an incredible combo of brown sugar with crunchy Grapenuts! Mmm. Five cherries all the way!~
