You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream! But in all seriousness, the only ice cream place I have been screaming for is Lottie’s Creamery located in Walnut Creek. Now I love ice cream, not as much as I love cupcakes but I have to say that, growing up, ice cream was a regular part of my diet and holds an everlasting spot in my heart. But lately I haven’t been having ice cream as much because I have been trying to be good about eating healthier and only indulging in sweets occasionally. Unfortunately, that meant not eating as much ice cream and honestly I was kind of sick of the ice cream you would buy at the grocery store or Baskin Robbins where the flavors would taste artificial and super sugary. I know that sounds super foodie, but I rationalized such that if I was going to eat something that isn’t the healthiest or really help my fitness goals, I wanted it to be worth it and taste like the best ice cream on the planet. My dream came true when I tried Lottie’s for the first time this past June.
Lottie’s Creamery makes fresh ice cream every morning with organic ingredients to create fresh and unique flavors that make treating yourself with ice cream incredibly worth the calories. They have a Twitter and Facebook account where they post a picture of their flavors for that day. My favorite flavors that I have had are Blue Bottle Coffee, Vanilla (which is actually a vanilla bean), and Strawberry. Honestly, I can’t pick one because all of them are just perfection. So fresh and delicious that I don’t think I ever will go back to buying store bought ice cream ever again because it honestly won’t come close in comparison. I can’t wait to try their Mint flavored ice cream because that was my favorite flavor when I was growing up, but that Blue Bottle Coffee ice cream is my favorite currently just because of my obsession and love for coffee. If you find yourself in the Walnut Creek area, definitely take a shopping break and get some ice cream at Lottie’s Creamery, you will not regret it!
