Sure, you're all about a balanced diet, nutrition, fitness...did someone say ice cream? Yes, that's what we heard, too. So let's step away from our kale smoothies and brown rice for a moment to sample the crazy-delicious new ice-cream treats across town.

Churro Borough's Ice-Cream Sandwich
This Los Feliz spot makes fresh, sugary churros, then smooshes flavor-packed scoops of ice cream--like Chocolate Cookie Malt and vegan Coconut Kaffir Lime Sorbet--between them.

Salt & Straw's Papi's Korean Fluffernutter
Local chef deity Roy Choi developed this ice cream based on the Korean-Beijingesque boiled, spiced peanuts he loved as a kid: peanuts, marshmallow, blackberry jelly and Thai chiles. It's available only through June, so indulge now.

Jeni's Splendid's Gooey Butter Sundae

McConnell's Waffle Cones
Barbara-based since '49, this institution just opened a Studio City location. Try the boysenberry rosé milk jam or the Eureka lemon with marionberries (nicknamed "the Cabernet of blackberries") on a supercrispy, house-made waffle cone.
