Whether you are looking for a plain scoop of ice cream, a scratch-made ice cream sandwich, a frozen treat low in sugar, or even vegan ice cream, St. Croix has it all! Even better, enjoy delicious tropical and seasonal flavors you won’t find anywhere else. Don’t worry, you can still get vanilla and chocolate ice cream with sprinkles, but you could also choose soursop, mango, coconut, or gooseberry. Here’s the scoop on some of our favorite stops for ice cream…
Love-Croix Helados & Eatz: What started as a popular ice cream cart at local events has grown into a full on food truck, offering all kinds of delicious eats. But, just because they’ve expanded doesn’t mean the helados (ice cream) has suffered. Stop by the lovely little shaded area Love-Croix owners Bulley and Marilyn Navarro have created in Peter’s Rest for delicious, homemade helados in local flavors like mango and coconut. Great vibes and great ice cream!
Shupe’s on the Boardwalk: If you are looking for a casual stop at a waterfront bar that happens to offer ice cream, Shupe’s is the place for you. Enjoy a beautiful view of Christiansted Harbor while you cool down with some vanilla softserve ice cream. There is something for everyone – vanilla softserve ice cream cones for the kids, and adult milkshakes with your favorite liquor for the grown ups!
Deck Bar at Rum Runners: The Deck Bar at Rum Runners is a popular local hangout because it offers cold drinks on the go, and a very simple bar menu. They also offer an unobstructed view of Christiansted Harbor, and are home to the Christiansted webcam. What you may not know is that they also offer some of the most amazing ice cream sandwiches imaginable! Cool, refreshing ice cream sandwiched between two homemade cookies, these frozen treats are almost enough for two people to share…almost.
The Mill Boardwalk Bar and Brick Oven Pizza: This open air, waterfront pizzeria offers great food and cocktails, but don’t miss out on their signature rum cake ice cream sandwiches. Made from scratch rum cake surrounding cold, refreshing ice cream, what could be more Caribbean? Perhaps the fantastic view of the Caribbean Sea while you enjoy them?!
St. Croix is an island that lives in an eternal state of summer weather…so it’s always a good time for ice cream! Remember, you can’t buy happiness, but you can buy ice cream and that’s kind of the same thing.
