Legendary pastry chef Dominique Ansel is opening up a brand new bakery and restaurant in Los Angeles in just a few days. He’s been posting sneak peeks of what’s to come on his Instagram, and his latest dessert revelation is an avocado toast ice cream that looks exactly like the actual item.
When in #California. Our Avocado Toast Ice Cream Sandwich at @DominiqueAnselLA, with avocado olive oil ice cream, ricotta mascarpone ice cream, and shortbread, topped with dragon fruit, freeze dried raspberries, olive oil and sea salt to finish. We’re opening FRIDAY, NOV 10TH at 9AM. Just 12 day to go! ✌️🥑🍦 #DAinLA #DominiqueAnselBakery #avocadotoast #icecream
The ice cream, which one user jokingly called the “Millennial Special” on Ansel’s post, consists of layers of texture and cold, creamy deliciousness that mesh together in a sweet and savory harmony. The “toast” base is a shortbread cookie that is topped with ricotta mascarpone ice cream. An “avocado ring” of avocado and olive oil ice cream is rested on top, which then gets garnished with freeze-dried raspberries, dragonfruit, olive oil, and sea salt.
It’s a visually stunning and sweet tribute to the infamous and beloved millennial cafe item, and could probably give most avocado toasts in Los Angeles a run for their money. One thing’s for sure: When Ansel opens up his new Los Angeles bakery next week, you can bet that people will be flocking there to get shots of this avocado toast ice cream for their Instagram feeds.
