Outdoor ordering? Check. Grab-and-go setup? Check. Perfect summertime outing with kids? You bet. Whether you’re craving authentic soft serve or churros à la mode, here’s the scoop on where to find the best frozen dessert trucks in Los Angeles.
CVT Soft Serve
Back in 2014, CVT Soft Serve brought traditional, ultra-creamy ice cream to LA, via a retrofitted Mr. Softee truck. The initials in the name stand for chocolate, vanilla and twist—the only three flavors CVT dishes out. When it comes to toppings, CVT similarly keeps it classic, offering rainbow sprinkles, chocolate sprinkles and sea salt. Most weekdays, you'll find the CVT truck in Sherman Oaks or Burbank. Follow them on social media for exact times and locations.
Indulge in small batch ice cream (with flavors like Early Grey, Creamy Mocha Swirl and more) from Recess Truck. In addition to ice cream, Recess also serves up ice cream cookie sandwiches, sundaes and the one-of-a-kind french toast sandwiches (ice cream topped in the middle and topped with maple syrup and powdered sugar).
