Two Spoons' California Fig Gelato

October 2009
Just in time for fig season, Two Spoons offers scoops of its California Fig gelato. The ultra-creamy treat combines the sweet, jammy fruit with a touch of honey. Extra punch comes from the tiny fig seeds that snap with each bite. As with other flavors (don't miss the Cappuccino Brownie or Dulce de Leche), the shop's gelati are made with local, all-natural milk from Morning Fresh Dairy Farm, organic sugar, and organic agave nectar. Add a warm, oatmeal-coconut cookie and a cup of robust "slow coffee" (a local roast dripped and filtered one cup at a time), and you have the ultimate afternoon pick-me-up. Bonus: Stop by Monday through Friday from 3 to 6 p.m. for happy hour: two-for-one gelato. 1021 Pearl St., Boulder, 303-545-0027
