1. Cinnamon Bun Ice Cream from Lee's Cream Liqueurs

There's nothing much to say about the cinnamon bun ice cream at Lee's Cream Liqueurs, but that's probably because we're too busy scarfing down the sweet, rich dessert to mumble anything more than "mmm." Kissed with a dash of cinnamon and spiked with real brandy, this adult-friendly treat simultaneously warms and cools your mouth -- providing the same mouthwatering wake-up call as a real sticky bun, at any time of day.

Lee's Cream Liqueur
7137 E. Stetson Dr., Scottsdale

2. Salted Caramel Ice Cream from Crave

Shannon Dufresne, ice cream purist and owner of Crave Artisan Ice Cream, has a penchant for the combination of salty and sweet. Maybe that's why her still-favorite signature salted caramel ice cream is one of our favorites, too. With a homemade base and only the freshest ingredients, this decidedly adult-minded cool, tasty treat can be found at the Phoenix Public Market, D'licious Dishes, and Luci's Healthy Marketplace.


Lick up the rest of our frozen faves after the jump.

3. Mango Chamoyada from Oasis Raspados
Mexican snow cones are the bomb. The toughest part of this one? Choosing a flavor. We're partial to the mango with leche, but it's the mango chamoyada that's really won our hearts and tongues. You've got to try this one for yourself; our best description: "like a chile lime mango shaved ice."

4. Mint Chip Ice Cream from Sweet Republic
The classic, seafoam-green tinted mint chocolate chip ice cream you enjoyed as a kid is wonderful -- until you've tried a bite of Sweet Republic's mint chip, made from all natural ingredients including fresh mint leaves. Fresh mint leaves in your ice cream. We promise, you'll swear off Baskin Robbins forever. Mint Chip and all of Sweet Republic's ice cream is available at the namesake Scottsdale shop, and you can catch it from SR's hipped up ice cream "truck" at events like First Friday or at Whole Foods outlets around town.
