There’s nothing better on a sunny South Florida afternoon that a bowl or cone of ice cream. Sure, you could buy the stuff out of the freezer section of the supermarket, but when you want the really, really good homemade stuff where do you go? Why not check out our top five picks.

Jaxson’s Ice Cream Parlor

128 S Federal Hwy
Dania, FL
(954) 923-4445
www.jaxsonsicecream.com

A Dania Beach legend, Jaxson’s Ice Cream Parlor has been at the same location making homemade ice cream on the premisis since the mid-1950’s.
Possibly the best banana splits in South Florida (ask for the extra fudge) and the portions are huge – great for sharing. Jaxson’s was recently been featured on the Food Network’s Top Five as the Top Cool Quencher.

Walls Old Fashioned Ice Cream

8075 SW 67th Ave
Miami, FL
(305) 740-9830
www.wallsfl.com

A long-time Miami institution Walls is tucked away in the Coral Gables/ South Miami area. All the ice cream is made there and their flavors are delicious. Not sure what to get? Why not start with a brownie sundae; a huge warm brownie topped with two scoops of ice cream, hot fudge, whipped cream, and whatever toppings. Walls is also know for its homemade fudge and their old fashioned floats.

Frieze Ice Cream Factory

1626 Michigan Ave
Miami Beach, FL
(305) 538-0207
www.thefrieze.com

Serving up fresh homemade ice cream and sorbet since 1987, the Frieze has developed quite following over the years. Just recently, they opened up a second location in the Plantation Towne Square strip shopping center. What can we say – everything is creamy, homemade, and really, really tasty. Not sure what to get and feeling a bit adventurous – try a scoop of the cappuccino chip with chocolate sprinkles.

Maggie Moo’s

2422 N Federal Hwy
Fort Lauderdale, FL
(954) 537-0100
www.maggiemoos.com

Okay, so we slipped in a chain place but if you haven’t been to a Maggie Moo’s (there are dozens of locations across South Florida) we have no idea what you are waiting for. The ice cream, made fresh in every location, is not only crazy good but it also comes in some wild flavors that you can mix with your favorite fixin’s like brownies, Snickers pieces, carmel or whatever. Maggie Moo’s invented the ice cream cupcake, as featured on Food Network and the ice cream pizza!

Whip ‘n Dip Ice Cream

1407 Sunset Dr
Miami, FL
(305) 665-2565
www.whipndipicecream.com

Hand scooped goodness in a cone. Whip n’ Dip usually has about 10 tubs of hand dipped ice cream (flavors rotate based on what they’ve recently made). They also have half a dozen machines that pump out soft-serve “whips”, all of which are light or sugar-free light. Just a word of warning – seating is limited to four picnic benches and the place is cash only.
