Summer's Hippest Flavour: Black Coconut Ice Cream

You’ve seen it all over the American it-girls Instagram feeds- this summer’s hippest frozen flavour, the stunningly dark black coconut ice cream. Not heading to California for your summer hols? Not to worry, we’ve discovered the one place in London you can get it: the Pear Tree Cafe in Battersea Park.

What is it? An amazing flavour sensation by Jude’s ice cream. And why is it black? A delicious combo of coconut milk and ash results in the edgy colour, a feast for the eyes and taste buds. Don’t worry- it doesn’t actually taste like ash, but more of a super creamy, subtle coconut flavour. Grab a cone at the Pear Tree Cafe (takeaway counter) a watch the paddleboats on the lake.

After more than an ice cream? The Pear Tree Cafe offers an all day breakfast (acai and berry bowl, £7), super bar snacks (sweet potato fries with harissa mayo, £4), and mains like the burger with chili jam (£12), so you can have a bite outside on the hip lakeside terrace before getting a cone and going for a stroll in the park.

And don’t forget to take an insta-worthy shot of the trend-setting treat before you eat it!
