Vanilla honey lavender ice cream – Fairfax Scoop

Project 365: Day 124

Ugh, so sad to be back at work today after such a great weekend. At least the weather is holding up. Heading to the gym after work and just gonna spend the night catching up on dvr.

This had a softer texture than some of the other flavors at Fairfax Scoop, but it tasted amazing. The honey added a rich sweetness and the lavender wasn’t too overpowering.

I remember having macarons once or twice as a kid, but it’s only recently that I’ve truly “discovered” these amazing confections! They’re like magic in your mouth – a dizzying combination of chewy, soft, crunchy, silky, grainy, and sweet.  There are so many flavors and colors that each time you try a different one, it’s a completely new and exciting experience.  Miette serves some of the best in town.  Of these three flavors, I liked hazelnut the best!
