Lick This Quick! 5 Local Frozen Treats

The crème de la cream of Austin.

For those who carry hardcore crushes on cartons, we've got the inside scoop on a few of our favorite local cold treats...

Stephen F. Frostin' South Congress Hotel just announced the summer kick-off for their mobile ice cream truck. Score homemade flavors like smoked chocolate, pineapple passion fruit sorbet and cinnamon caramel at some of A-town's most popular summer events, starting with Blues on the Green at Zilker Park NEXT Wednesday, June 3 (rescheduled from tomorrow, due to weather).

NadaMoo!: Loco for coco? Each little carton of this coconut milk organic, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, cholesterol-free dessert is better than the next. You were already replacing your morning coffee with Java Crunch, and now you'll be adding the just released Cookies & Crème as a must midnight snack. Cool tip: the chocolate cookie crumbles in the C&C are from Better Bites Bakery

Cow Tipping Creamery: Located in a truck near UT Campus, this soft-serve mobile offers unique ingredients - Frito saltine toffee bark, anyone? - but we are mad for the signature High Tea cone - English lemon curd, honey dust and crushed tea biscuits. 

Tèo Gelato: Fun fact about this chilled thrill, the label's handcrafted Texas Pecan Pie flavor was voted top five in the world in the Gelato World Championship Italy in 2014. New flavor to try: Coconut Nutella. 

Yeti Frozen Custard: This all-natural custard (pictured) comes in flavors to swoon over like breakfast-approved Blueberry Pancake and Cinnamon Toast. Grab a spoon during the Austin Sound & Cinema NEXT Wednesday, June 3 at The Long Center.
