On hot days like these, there's only one cure to beat the heat: ice cream. The sweet, creamy treat is the best way to instantly feel a little cooler.\nWhether you're celebrating, mourning, stress-eating or something in between, ice cream is always there for you. Unlike your terrible A.C, it will never let you down!\nSoft-serve is an underrated kind of ice cream, and we've got an abundance of great places that serve up swirls of the photogenic frozen desert. Read on for a list of some of the best soft-serve in Montreal.\nRipples\nWhere: 3880 Boul. St-Laurent\nThis is probably my favourite ice cream shop in the city: their Kulfi ice cream, as well as their chai latte ice cream, are fantastic. They also have a fun array of soft-serve ice cream.\nView this post on Instagram Thinking of this cool looking strawberry frozen yogurt swirl in a sugar cone from @ripplesicecream ! . This shop makes all of their ice cream in house, but unfortunately we didn't get to try any of it. Instead, we opted for this strawberry frozen yogurt because we wanted a nice swirl day! They used real strawberries to blend with their bar of frozen yogurt - which is not made in house. The flavours was refreshing and the sweetness came from the strawberries. This process and the texture reminds us of the classic froyo blend. . . . . . . . . . . #scoopadventures #icecreamislife #icecream #softserve #strawberry #frozenyogurt #froyo #toronto #the6 #tastethisnext #montreal #tastemontreal #icecreamTO #icecreammtl #icecreammontreal #dessert #dessertTO #dessertmontreal #eeeeeats #foodoftheday #instafood #ripples #ripplesicecream A post shared by Scoopadventures (@scoopadventures) on Sep 27, 2017 at 8:24am PDT\nFind out more.\nKem Coba\nWhere: 60 Avenue Fairmount O.\nKem Coba is famous for their exotic ice cream flavours.
