Smitten Ice Cream - Best Ice Cream in Los Angeles

Smitten Ice Cream

Locations: Century City and El Segundo


Smitten ice cream is made with organic milk and cream... so it’s good for you! πŸ˜‹ they even make it right in front of you blending it with liquid nitrogen in their Brrr Machine! 🍨 The chocolate chip cookie dough with pretzels is my personal favorite! Gotta love that perfect salty sweet combo! πŸ“There is also a Strawberry buttermilk that is pretty superb, using strawberries from local SoCal farms! πŸ“ They also have the nicest people that work there! What a treat!

Afters Ice Cream - cookie monster - Less Talk, More Ice Cream quote

Afters Ice Cream

Locations: All over Southern California (See google map above or their website)


I love their sayings and their cookie monster ice cream! Afters is very trendy, more of a Millennial spot with relatable quotes.

Also, Afters is home of the Milky bun, which is a warm glazed bun (donut like) stuffed with ice cream and whatever you want in it. 

As they say, "Less talk, more ice cream!"


Halo Top Scoop Shop - Best Ice Cream in Los Angeles

Halo Top Scoop Shop

Locations: Woodland Hills, Century City, and coming soon to Santa Monica


It was a toss up between ice cream and soft serve! I figured since I could grab a pint anywhere, might as well try the soft serve in a PINK cone! PINK! How could I resist? There was a pretty blue color as well, but I had to match my nail color, obviously! 

I must say the peaches and creamy soft serve was pretty good! For being "guilt free" and since it was made with fruit, it was a great afternoon snack leaving you with a satisfied feeling as opposed to a full I just consumed too much sugar feeling.
