Ice Cream is having a moment! While cupcakeries are close at an astonishing clip, Los Angeles is discovering cool treats at an unprecedented rate. It’s about time – our weather calls out for icy goodness year round. Here are our favorite brand new places to get something spectacularly cold in these dog days of summer.  A couple are so new they’re still putting on the finishing touches to open ASAP, so get ready to be the first to try them.

Kippy’s Ice Cream

Tired of your juice cleanse? Kippy’s offers an ice cream cleanse. It’s not as crazy as it sounds, because Kippy’s is raw organic non-dairy coconut-based ice cream sweetened with raw honey. It’s also dairy, soy, nut and gluten free. And yummy! So if anyone in your family has any dietary restrictions, or if you just need a sweet treat that doesn’t make you feel too gluttonous, the new Kippy’s in Venice is the place for you. Cleanse not required.

We all scream for: Any flavor (ok, particularly any of the chocolate flavors) with the honey chocolate magic shell on top.
