The hottest place to cool off this summer is Miami Ice. Located on 39th Street, Miami Ice offers frozen treats of all varieties including custard, shaved ice, scooped ice cream, smoothies and shakes. Their flavorings are made with real cane sugar - no high fructose corn syrup here! - and range from pineapple to pink lemonade.
What makes Miami Ice the coolest of them all? Their shaved ice comes with a thick layer of vanilla custard on the bottom, which takes on a creamsicle effect mid-way through your cup.
Favorite flavor combination so far: strawberry and pina colada. It combines perfectly with the vanilla custard and tastes similar to a Miami Vice. Coincidence? I think not.
For ice cream, try the S'mores mixer - vanilla ice cream, marshmallow topping, chocolate syrup and chunks of graham crackers.
The guy behind the counter was the perfect guide after I walked in the door and announced I was a Miami Ice first-timer. I received great service and recommendations from the staff and at $2.75 for a sweet treat I can definitely afford to be a repeat customer all summer.
Bring your pup when you visit, Miami Ice is dog friendly!
