Grab These Frozen Treats Before They Melt

5 Frosty New Snacks

joyride frozen yogurt!

We’re softees for these new frozen treats.

Call it bro yo: Three Ivy-educated friends run this mobile truck that combines custom frozen yogurt (a blend of natural and Greek; $4-$7) with Stumptown coffee bar drinks. Try “buzzed” — fro yo infused with caffeine — topped with fresh fruit or jaggery, the honey-like sap of Sri Lankan jaggery palm trees. Today, catch them at 66th Street and Broadway from 10 a.m. to midnight. Follow them for updates and locations.

Ethan Frisch (Allen & Delancey and Tabla) and Ori Zohar’s new frozen custard-meets-gelato is churned out in rich, nuanced flavors like chai masala ($3.50-$6). Find them on Saturdays at Hester Street Fair or Sundays at Fulton Stall Market, and watch as frozen banana toppings are bruleed with a mini blowtorch. Follow their Twitter for cart locations and info on ice cream-making classes.

Mia Dona Gelato Sandwich Cart
Puglian princess Donatella Arpaia knows exactly how to satisfy our not-too-sweet tooth. The restaurateur’s gelateria on wheels, parked outside Mia Dona (206 East 58th Street, between Second and Third Avenues; 212-750-8170), lures passers-by with pistachio and sweet ricotta scoops sandwiched between toasted brioche ($6). Stop by between 4 and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The UES’s newest soft-serve shack is set to launch mid-August and specializes in fresh fruit (1371 Third Avenue, at 78th Street; 212-794-2200). Distinctive textures reflect individual flavors (mango, banana, strawberry), though the under-100 calorie, four-ounce serving size applies to all three. While on line for the fat-, cholesterol-, and gluten-free snack ($3.75), soak in fruity goodness via the scratch-and-sniff banana wallpaper.

Je & Jo
Head to the GreenFlea market on Sundays (through September 26, noon-5:30 p.m.) for this new brand, which folds homemade organic ice creams (cinnamon, coffee, honey grapefruit) with cookie dough (oatmeal raisin, pecan sandy). Cups ($4) are scooped from a refrigerated case on the back of a tricycle.

Ten more artisanal ice cream flavors you’ve got to try.
