Ice cream is just the best. Whoever invented it should've gotten an award of some sort -- that's just a fact. Having July named National Ice Cream Month is something of a consolation prize ... at least to us, the eaters! Below are links to our favorite varieties. Enjoy!
L.A.'s Ice Cream: We've got some pretty great options in this city. And the photos are gorgeous.
Beer Floats at Golden State: Well sure. Why not? Turn your float into an adult treat!
Chocolate Ice Cream: From Fenton's, Sweet Rose, Margot's, and more, the best chocolate ice cream around the state.
Apple Pie Ice Cream with Cinnamon Sauce: You get all the apple pie flavor without needing to bake!
Maple Ice Cream: This one also comes with a pumpkin cake recipe. Make one, make both, do whatever you want with it!
Banana Splits: Find inspiration in this photo gallery.
Spiced Grapefruit Sorbet: This is a reader-submitted recipe, and it is unusual and fantastic.
