Watermelon Wishes and Caviar Dreams

I came across this photo of Watermelon Pizza and am completely inspired. I love the vibrant color of the fruit and that it is healthy.

This idea is perfect for a party and especially for a children’s party so they can have a fun treat. I have made fruit pizza with a cookie crust, but this new twist is a must try for me. I love how they cut the watermelon into thin circle slices, sliced bananas, and tossed on other fruits such as grapes, blueberries, and blackberries. You could jazz it up for adults by adding really nice balsamic vinegar drizzled on the top. Slice into triangular shapes to create the pizza pie and you are all set. I can’t wait to bring this to a pool party this summer and delight everyone with this mouth watering fresh treat.

Coolhaus

I finally got to go to the ice cream shoppe, Coolhaus! I have been dying to try the creative flavors and have been unable to catch the truck, so I made my way to the Culver City brick and mortar store.

The co-founders of Coolhaus, Natasha Case and Freya Estreller, began by baking cookies and ice cream, and combining them into “cool houses” in 2008. Their unique approach to the creamy sweet treat is to combine sweet and savory to develop amazing flavors. They also value sourcing locally when possible and using the best organic ingredients.

The store is small, but cute. There is a neon pink sign in the shape of their iconic ice cream sandwhich logo at the front of the store. There is a handwritten list with the flavors of the day and a list inside with what you can order. You can get scoops of ice cream, an ice cream sandwich, ice cream floats, and milkshakes.

My favorite flavor was the Fig, Balsamic & Marscapone. It was creamy, sweet and savory all in one. DELISH!

The combinations are endless, so have fun mixing and matching to your little heart’s content.

You can get your Coolhaus fix at one of the food trucks or at the store in Culver City.

The store is located at 8588 Washington Blvd, Culver City, CA 90232 310-424-5559
