Ice cream & frozen yogurt, juice bar & smoothies and Mexican food? Fruteria y Neveria (which means ice cream) is listed as an ice cream shop on their Facebook page. Whatever it is it’s the REAL DEAL. You can indulge in Mexican dishes like tasty elote, prepared hot cheetos (covered with hot nacho cheese and sour cream), or a healthier option like a shrimp cocktail tostado. Get old-fashioned and fancy ice cream treats or spice things up with mango on a stick covered with lime, chamoy and chile powder.


Mixed fruit cups from Fruteria y Neveria are topped with granola, fruit, and whipped cream.


Now you might be asking how this ended up on the healthy list. If, and only if, you have the willpower to pass on the above, you can order the Mixed Fruit Cup with Cantaloupe, Cucumber, Jicama, Orange, Strawberry, Watermelon, Papaya, Pineapple, Mango, Black Grapes, Green Apple with chile and lime. And I’m pretty sure you can customize any fruitilicious treat! Dine-in or see the Facebook post below for takeout instructions. Take a moment to scroll their page… it’s soooo pretty!
