Three Twins Ice Cream

bakeries/cafes/dessert places - vegan

People often ask me what’s on “The Actor’s Diet,” to which I answer, “Whatever I feel like.”  Lately, with another heat wave hitting Los Angeles, it seems like all I’m craving is ice cream!

On Sunday, I had “breakfast” with Audrey at Salt and Straw, then “lunch” with Abe in Santa Monica at a new place – Three Twins Ice Cream.

Scoops are small.  I got the vegan option – Stormy Night – a chocolate rice milk concoction.

Abe ordered a cookie sandwich.  I can’t remember if these were vegan/gluten-free or not but I wasn’t a fan of the textures.

The ice cream part, however, I can get behind!

Sprinkles Ice Cream

They say cupcakes are going out of fashion, but you wouldn’t know it from the line that still piles up outside Sprinkles in Beverly Hills.

Of course, this particular store also has ice cream…

The above is a mini red velvet with salted caramel – a winning combo concocted by my brilliant cousins Mark/Jen.  I opted for “plain old” peanut butter cup, which contains TCHO Chocolate, but am fantasizing about the day I return for a red velvet cone or cookie sandwich.

P.S.  Speaking of food at meetings, who saw Blackish last night?  You may have recognized Christy’s husband Jeff on it going to town!
