When it comes to ice cream, we’re scooping all year round. But come summer, we’re swirling up the routine with these sweet inventions.

1. Dark Choco Taco

Street Beet, Detroit

Scoops of local Volcano Salt Vanilla ice cream are encased in a homemade waffle taco, sealed in a dark chocolate shell, then finished with a sprinkling of chopped peanuts. It’s a simple, nostalgic formula, but it works oh-so well.

2. Happy Ice & Soft-Serve

Happy Ice, Los Angeles

This shaved-ice joint’s ultra-fine, super-soft, eponymous dessert lies somewhere at the intersection of a slushie, sorbet, and granita. But its eye-popping, psychedelic, rainbow pattern—and swirl of Chicago Vegan Foods vanilla soft-serve—puts it in a league of its own.

3. Hummus Shakes

The Hummus and Pita Co., New York City

These way-tastier-than-they-sound shakes are made with a blend of chickpeas, tahini, bananas, dates, almond milk, and a touch of cinnamon. In classic flavors like chocolate, strawberry, butter pecan, and pistachio—plus a dollop of vegan whipped cream—this summer treat is a true hum-must!

4. Monkey Business

The Modern Vegan, Las Vegas

Banana bread is deep fried and topped with vanilla ice cream, a crosshatch of chocolate sauce, sliced fresh bananas, and a dusting of powdered sugar. Sure, the ice cream plays second fiddle to the glory that is fried banana bread, but the hot-and-cold symphony of the two playing together is pure harmony.

5. Samoa Samoa

Frozen Gold, Colorado Springs

A towering swirl of toasted coconut soft-serve gets coated in candied Rice Krispies, showered in toasted coconut shavings, and drizzled in brown sugar fudge and caramel sauces in this Girl Scout Cookie-inspired frozen fantasy we can’t get enough
