When it comes to eating your vegetables, Salt & Straw may have figured out the best way — in ice cream, of course.  

Starting today, fans can sink their teeth into August’s five flavors of the month — “Veggies You Crave” – in scoops, pints, or milkshakes at any location. So grab a spoon, and get ready to savor summer’s bounty.

🍫 Spinach Cake with Chocolate Tahini Fudge

Much like when Popeye inhales a can of invigorating greens, this tasty Turkish-inspired treat punches above what you expect. Pureed spinach batter is baked into fluffy pieces, slathered in frosting, and mixed into vanilla ice cream alongside rich, housemade fudge bites. Ah guh guh guh guh.

🍁 Green Fennel + Maple

The entire fennel plant, from bulb to frond, is incorporated in this complex creation. Juiced leaves, steeped in pollen + syrup, tantalize the palate, while aromatic black licorice and herbs bring you back for more.

🥕 Carrot Cake Batter with Pralined Hazelnuts

Decadent, slow-roasted carrots and molasses come together for this classic, crowd-pleasing combination that ends with a crunch. You’d be hopping mad to not give this recipe a try. 

🌽 Charred Corn Curd, Cotija + Tajin

Somehow, they’ve distilled elotes and summer nights around the grill into a cone-worthy confection, crafted with housemade mayo ice cream. You’re in store for some toasted sweetness and salty cotija cheese.

🌶️ Red Chili Curry & Makrut Lime Crispy Rice

You thought it was hot outside? Wait ‘til you take a bite of this swelteringly smooth (and vegan) concoction. Southeast Asian spices turn up the temp, but lemongrass and coconut cream bring it back down for a satisfying contrast with a vibrant pop of citrus.
