When it's finally hot in Edmonton, we like to celebrate with ice cream. But not all ice cream is created equal. If you're an ice cream fanatic, be sure to check out these fabulous shops in Edmonton this summer.

Yelo'd Ice Cream and Bake Shoppe

Yelo'd is a fabulous ice cream shop in Edmonton offering Filipino and Asian inspired flavours. Their ice cream is available as hard scoops and soft serve and you can also enjoy delicious baked goods – from cookies to cakes. Try something new-to-you like Champorado (warm chocolate rice pudding with ice cream on top) or Halo Halo (shaved ice with jellies, coconut, jackfruit, scor bibingka, corn flakes and ice cream) – you won't be disappointed!

Kind Ice Cream

If you love handcrafted, quality ice cream, look no further than Kind Ice Cream. It's made in small batches using the best ingredients they can source locally including Alberta milk, cream and eggs. They also make fabulous dairy-free ice cream made with homemade cashew milk, coconut cream and cocoa butter. Their flavours change often and are definitely delicious and interesting – like Mango Serrano and vegan Salted Caramel Honeycomb.

Made By Marcus

The ice cream from Made by Marcus is scratch-made with grass-fed dairy and ingredients sourced from top notch farmers, roasters, distillers, and artisans. Their flavours are definitely different – think Black Cherry Anise! They even offer vegan varieties that go way beyond Vanilla like Lemon Saffron Coconut and Pink Peppercorn Strawberry.

Scoop n Roll Creamery

Scoop n Roll Creamery is Canada's first rolled ice cream spot. Rolled ice cream started in Thailand where ice cream rolls are made fresh, right before your eyes with fresh ingredients. A liquid ice cream base is poured onto an ice cold pan, mixed with your choice of fresh fruits, nuts, and other premium ingredients and then rolled as it freezes. It's an ice cream experience that you won't forget! With seven locations across Edmonton, you're bound to find one near you.

We hope you give these fantastic Edmonton ice cream shops a try this summer!
