Snow LA

I love hot weather, and don’t mind humidity, because it’s a great excuse to cool down with icy desserts!

Snow LA is a shavery which was started by a husband and wife team. They’re all about making handmade, small batches of snow. And they use fresh ingredients – no artificial preservatives. Must be why their green tea snow was my favorite – it’s made with 100% Matcha from Japan. Here it is with popping mango boba.

Here’s a look at their menu:
20140704_205338I’m a big fan of Yogurtland’s topping bar, so I was excited to build my own. Although after weighing, it was about equal to a combo. And while there was definitely a variety of flavors, they didn’t really complement each other. Oreos and lychee … what was I thinking?? Next time I’ll leave it to the pros and get a combo.

It was fun watching the snow get shaved down. How cute are these machines?

The cafe is a great place to chill, both literally and figuratively. The music isn’t too loud, so you can actually hold a conversation, and the ambience is cute and trendy.  Lots of amazing framed art on the walls. They even have a terrarium. Can’t wait to come back here!
