Ice cream. Ice cream. Ice cream. In a perfect world for the sweet toothers who crave and want to indulge in cold and fresh garden-like sweets, all ice cream would be made from organic dairy, and real ingredients, such as herbs, spices, flowers, and seasonal fruits. Wait a second, Carmela Ice Cream in Los Angeles, CA (and Pasadena, CA) does just that. Could this cute, little ice cream shop be THAT perfect? We think so.
Carmela offers the most unique artisan ice cream flavors, which makes them so different than other local ice cream shops. Their flavors are garden-inspired from their signature flavors to their seasonal flavors. It’s like putting a “healthy” spin on your favorite ice cream, and getting a hint of the nutrients your body needs!
Aside from their two locations in Los Angeles and Pasadena, CA, their garden-inspired artisan ice cream is also available at farmer’s markets in the LA area and at specialty stores.
Photographed above are six unique ice cream flavors we selected and absolutely loved.

1) Strawberry Buttermilk
2) Earl Gray Tea
3) Peaches ‘N’ Cream
We’ve never had any ice cream that tasted like Carmela Ice Cream. Ice cream here is unbelievably fresh, and we can’t stress on how different and unique their flavors are. It almost seemed like we were eating pure ingredients… in a waffle bowl. The freshness of the garden-inspired ingredient stood out in every bite, and when it was mixed with ice cream, our taste buds were in for an unbelievable treat. Sounds a little crazy, but the fresher the food, the better it is for you, and this bowl of ice cream sure made our lives that much better.
