I Scream, You Scream, we all Scream for Ice Cream
It’s no secret, it’s hot in the desert during the summer months. Thankfully, we have the inside scoop on where to find the most delicious ice cream around. From the traditional, to the monstrous and all the funky flavors in between, your family will be sure to find a cool treat.
Monster Shakes, Dole Whip, Frozen Yogurt, and Dairy-Free Delights
Aside from their monster shakes, they have a pretty monstrous menu too. Enjoy a Dole Whip delight, some frozen yogurt, a flavorful smoothie, refreshing shaved ice, or some freshly baked cookies. If those don’t satisfy your sweet tooth, there’s ice cream, banana splits, energy bowls, cotton candy, or a traditional sundae to choose from. They even have some dairy free delights.
Gourmet Malts, Milkshakes, Artisan Treats, and Retro Candy
Gourmet shakes, malts and floats made with pure, simple and whole ingredients – nothing artificial and no corn syrup whatsoever. Great Shakes uses their own recipes to make their ice cream and it’s certified to be free of antibiotics and added hormones. Because they produce their ice cream at the perfect temperature for shakes, they don’t add any milk. So, you get an ALL ice cream shake or malt, not ice milk! And who can resist those tasty tiny donuts around the straw?
Mangonadas, Fruit Salad, Fruit Smoothies, Milk Shakes, and Mexican Style Ice Cream
If you want to explore the world of Mexican treats, look no further. From ice cream to Esquites (corn cups), Tostolicos, Bionicos, Elote (Mexican corn) and Paletas (Mexican popsicles). Unique flavors that you can’t find anywhere else such as Tequila, Almond, Strawberry Fresca, Hazelnut Banana, Pine Nut, Arroz Con Leche (with actual bits of rice), and so many more. And don’t leave without trying a Mangonada with the traditional tamarind-wrapped candy straw and topped with delicious tamarind candies.
