It’s so hot in South Florida, ice cream should be the official cool-down snack.
While chocolate and vanilla are staples, some SoFlo ice cream parlors are taking flavors to a whole new level.
Dasher and Crank in Wynwood is doing you a flavor, and they’ve got ’em all.
Peanut butter crunch, chocolate, strawberry with guava, salmon and cream cheese.
Daniel Levine: “We are serving a really wild flavor: salmon cream cheese ice cream. It is a homemade cream cheese ice cream with poached blue glazed salmon and fresh dill.”
This ice cream shop is turning a brunch staple into a frozen treat.
It kind of tastes like eating a salmon cream cheese bagel, and it totally works.
So, here’s the scoop.
Daniel Levine: “We make our cream cheese base, and we poach some salmon fillets in it with some fresh dill.”
Don’t worry, you don’t get any chunks of salmon in it.
Daniel Levine: “We do infuse the flavor of the salmon into the cream cheese base with the fresh dill and then strain it out.”
And since it reminds you of a bagel, top it off like one.
Daniel Levine: “Sometimes we will top the salmon cream cheese ice cream with everything topping, rather than sprinkles.
Sounds fishy, but it works.
Penelope Madic: “When I first saw it I was scared, but when I tasted it, it actually tasted good.”
At Little Havana’s Azucar, people are going bananas for a fun and funky flavor.

Fried plantain ice cream? Tell us more!
Suzanne Batlle: “These platanos, since they are fried, are super moist on the inside and crunchy on the outside, so every time you take a bite of this ice cream it’s like candy.
Fried plantains get cut up, put into an ice cream base, then blended with a little rum, and when it comes out of the ice cream machine, the “banana-y” goodness is layered with even more fried plantains!
Rachel Jordan: “It’s sweet and a little savory mixed in, but it has some depth with the different texture as well.”
This out of the box flavor is really appealing.
Suzanne Batlle: “For us, it’s about eating something that is so great and making it into an ice cream.”
