I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

At last, our summer weather has arrived and this past week we have been in search of delicious ice cream to cool us down!

1. Marina’s Gelato
Located in Maple Ridge, Marina’s Gelato serves over 40 flavours of gelato and sorbetto. It is all made on premises and, trust me, you can taste the freshness. Try the Stracciatella!

11968 224th Street, Maple Ridge

2. Frosty’s Ice Cream
After a day of running around Cultus Lake Water Park or swimming at Main Beach, a generous helping of ice cream is a perfect way to end the day! Frosty’s Ice Cream offers 50 flavours and huge scoops. Mint chocolate chip, wildberry yogurt, birthday cake – what’s your favourite?

4121 Columbia Valley, Chilliwack (Cultus Lake)

3. Krause Berry Farms
This is a fantastic place to spend some time with the family this summer! After you have picked some strawberries, relax on the Krause Berry Farms porch with a cup of berry ice cream. A perfectly sweet summer treat!

6429 248th Street, Langley

4. Birchwood Dairy
Rich, thick, creamy ice cream is the best kind, and you will find it at Abbotsford’s Birchwood Dairy. Our favourites include Bordeaux Cherry, Funky Monkey and Raspberry Frozen Yogurt. Visit the farm itself, or find this local favourite at many farm markets and ice cream stands, including Yarrow’s Mighty Moose Ice Cream.

1154 Fadden Road, Abbotsford

5. White Mountain Homemade Ice Cream
White Rock has a number of sweet ice cream parlours all along the beach. One of our favourites is White Mountain Homemade Ice Cream. Not only do they serve decadent ice cream (with huge portions), they also serve frozen yogurt with your choice of fruit. Strawberry, pineapple, peach… choose your own adventure! Then cross the street, take your shoes off and spend the afternoon with sand between your toes.

14909 Marine Drive, White Rock

Some other Team FVP favourites include Alouette Fresh in Maple Ridge, Ice Cream Galore in Langley, Chantilly Ice Cream in Harrison Hot Springs, Zenberry in Pitt Meadows and we are anxious to learn more about OhhJoy!!

Where’s your favourite ice cream, gelato or frozen yogurt destination?!

    Their gelato made with Belgian chocolate and their signature Demerara Butter Crunch is to die for!
