RECIPE

CHILL OUT

Ice Cream, Sorbet, Gelato and Popsicles Take the Edge Off Houston’s Scorching Summer Heat
By Robin Barr Sussman

Yes, the mercury is rising but there’s no reason to sweat the small stuff. These frozen treat shops scattered around town are here to save the day. Just feel like staying home and cooling off? We’ve got the recipe for that, too!

CLOUD 10 CREAMERY
They heard our screams for more ice cream so a second location launched in the Heights last summer. Dreamy flavors like goat cheese with milk chocolate, strawberry with blackberry jam, pineapple chili sorbet and other frozen treats will put you on cloud nine.
713-434-6129, 5216 Morningside; 713-485-5106, 711 Heights; www.cloud10creamery.com

CREAMISTRY®
This family-friendly destination now has three locations in the area and recently added inventive ice cream sandwiches to its roster. The showy made-on-the-spot liquid nitrogen ice cream is incredibly fresh, soft and creamy.
713-750-9039, 5000 Westheimer; 832-742-9858, 791 Town & Country Boulevard; 281-394-9668, 24515 Katy Freeway (Katy); www.creamistry.com

DOLCE NEVE
This cool emporium will lift you out of the summer doldrums with its ever-changing lineup of rich Italian gelato. Tongue-tingling choices like salted caramel, custard with lemon zest, and the vegan coconut milk with black raspberry jam make choosing almost impossible.
4721 North Main, 832-767-2183, www.dolcenevegelato.com 

HOPDODDY BURGER BAR
Those notoriously long lines might be due to the sinful shakes on offer this time of year. Slurp up s’mores, strawberry shortbread, Oreo cookies n’ cream, malted root beer and more. Save a little room for the creative, multi-layered burgers and crispy fries.
281-557-2337, 5510 Morningside; 713-227-2337, 4444 Westheimer; 281-554-2337, 142 Vintage Park Boulevard; www.hopdoddy.com

SPRINKLES
This hot cupcake shop is scooping seasonal flavors, like salted pistachio ice cream, into decadent waffle cones. Or try the cute mini sundaes, Sprinkles shot or generously stuffed ice cream sandwiches prepared with house-baked cookies.
713-871-9929, 4014 Westheimer, www.sprinkles.com

STEEL CITY POPS
This Atlanta import is set to open another shop in Rice Village this summer. Natural, healthy and delicious — Steel City’s bright popsicles have so much to offer. Choose from fruity, creamy or custom flavor your own with myriad dips and toppings.
832-497-1471, 420 East 20th; 832-500-5737, 16155 City Walk (Sugar Land); 713-893-0440, 2565 Amherst (coming soon); www.steelcitypops.com
