4 Best Places for Treats to Help Beat the Heat
When you’re enduring the triple-digit temperatures in Las Vegas, there’s nothing more satisfying than a sweet frozen treat to keep you cool. From frozen hot chocolate to alcoholic milkshakes, you can find just about any kind of frozen dessert in Las Vegas. Here are four sweet places in Vegas with some of the coolest treats around.
Famous for its original New York City location and many appearances in films, Serendipity 3 is an absolute must-visit when in Vegas. This old-fashioned ice cream parlor is right next to Caesars Place and offers a variety of whimsical desserts guaranteed to dazzle and delight your sweet tooth. Its signature Frrrozen Hot Chocolate is a heavenly blend of 20 kinds of chocolate topped with whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Choose from yummy flavors such as peanut butter, Orrreo, amaretto almond, white chocolate and mint.
Luv-It Frozen Custard
If you’re looking for a local favorite, it doesn’t get more Vegas than Luv-It Frozen Custard. Located on E. Oakey Blvd., this Vegas institution has been serving delicious frozen custard treats since 1973. The egg custard is made fresh daily in vanilla, chocolate, and two special flavors that change every day. Some of its unique flavors include Sin-A-Buns, Malt Crème, and Blue Moon. You can order the egg custard in shakes, malts, floats or sundaes (the most popular option). Be sure to try the Western sundae – vanilla custard topped with a layer of hot fudge, caramel and salted pecans.
Who said that milkshakes are just for kids? Definitely not Holsteins, that’s for sure. Found at The Cosmopolitan, Holsteins is the place to go for tasty shakes with a playful adult twist. Their Bam-Boozled shakes are exactly what they sound like… booze-infused shakes. From campfire smores to pecan turtle cheesecake, Holsteins turns your favorite desserts into indulgent shakes with just a little kick. If you’re not in the mood for booze, their original milkshakes and malts are just as good too.
You haven’t had real gelato until you’ve tried Amorino Gelato, located at The Linq or Las Vegas Premium Outlets North. Amorino Gelato brings a taste of Italy to Las Vegas with its authentic, traditional Italian gelato. What sets this gelateria apart is that their gelato is made from organic and natural ingredients sourced all over the world. There are 27 irresistible flavors ranging from chocolate to exotic lime basil and lemongrass. Feeling overwhelmed with all the choices? Great news – You can combine as many flavors as you want. Plus, if you order a cone, they’ll sculpt an Amorino rose out of gelato (aka the perfect Instagram post).
