Three spectacular ways to enjoy these hot August nights (other than a quick run through the sprinkler in your neighbor’s yard).
Coconut Ice Cream
Handmade by Agave, this is the best coconut ice cream that I remember having. With three generous scoops, there is more than enough dense, smooth goodness to share with another person; but the abundance of chewy, salty-sweet toasted coconut shreds makes it acceptable to eat the whole flower-topped bowl yourself: $4.50 per order.
Ruby-Jewel Ice-Cream Sandwiches
Chocolate-Mint or Chocolate Chip-Vanilla Bean? Don’t overheat your brain choosing – try both flavors of these handcrafted Portland delights available at the Co-op. Then sit back and say "ahh": $3.39 each.
Oregon Trail Ice Cream
After satisfying the pioneer inside with a hike in the hills of Ashland (or not!), head to Zoey’s Café to cool down with this regionally-inspired treat: crunchy, earthy toasted hazelnuts and marionberry preserves suspended in rich chocolate ice cream: $2 – $4.75.
