Fru-ta Ice Cream | Petaluma - Sonoma County

Melanie Wong | Aug 26, 201712:54 AM

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.

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.
