On a blistering hot day in July, I escaped the heat by heading to an ice cream parlor, Fru-ta in Petaluma. One of three locations of this Mexican artisan ice cream producer, the other two are in Santa Rosa. https://www.chowhound.com/post/mangon...

This paleta is Fresa con crema (strawberry and cream). The strawberry fruit ice core is enrobed in vanilla ice cream. Some paleta shops will call this a Chemise. It's one of my favorite varieties during summer and peak strawberry season.

On my way out I got a lime agua fresca for the road. Not too sweet, just enough to bring out all the refreshing fruit flavor.

Fru-ta is located in the Plaza North Shopping Center to the north of Trader Joe's and Raley's. It's almost too convenient to fit into a day of errands.
