Serendipity Natural Ice Cream and Sorbet, Marrickville

Mission: Ice cream run. Destination: Serendipity!!! Person who got roped in: The considerate Herr Moutarde:)

So we’re off to Serendipity Natural Ice Cream and Sorbet, which is conveniently and dangerously close by. I first had a taste of Serendipity goodness at a dinner party held by my uncle (who is a fantastic chef), where he incorporated the Serendipity Coconut and Kaffir Lime sorbet into one of his magnificent dessert creations. I was instantly hooked.

Herr Moutarde and I have a tendency to throw portion control out the window when faced with things like ice cream, so we decided to buy only one little tub that day – and I was given the task of choosing that one special flavour. Well, I had difficulty narrowing down the multiple flavours and ended up getting two, the Fig, Honey and Pistachio (150ml), and Peanut Butter Disaster (500mL). Other flavours that made it on my (long) shortlist were Mangos and Cream, Super Fudge Brownie and the Strawberry and Cointreau sorbet.

Peanut Butter Disaster

When I asked if this was any good, the girl in the store looked at me with a knowing glint in her eye and told me it was part of a new collection and that she herself, couldn’t get enough. Good sign lol. It’s delicious, with crispy praline pieces swirled through this creamy, gooey peanut butter icecream. Despite being the bigger tub, we finished this first (it went much too quickly for my liking lol). If you’re a fan of the peanut butter and chocolate combo, you have to try this:)

Fig, Honey and Pistachio

The taste of fig and honey was especially potent in this mix; I would have loved more pistachio, but overall still a tasty flavour combination.

Just in case…

The shop is located in an awkward place, since there really isn’t much else to do in the immediate area, but if you’re ever in the general Marrickville/Enmore/Newtown vicinity, it’s worth popping in to have a look. The staff wrap all purchased goods with a mound of paper so even if you’re driving a bit further to get home, melting shouldn’t be too much of a problem.

I went to a class here during good food month one year. It was really fun. I only wish my little sunbeam could produce such smooth icecream. It would be nice if it took 20 L too ;)

What timing to read this story, during this sweltering Sydney Summer day. How it cruelly tempts me :P Just kidding, it looks marvellous. I think I would have chosen those flavours too! :)

Mmm I love Serendipity after trying it at the Noodle Markets. May I pls ask how much each of the tubs were?

Miss Honey said...

Hi Reem, haha what a random coincidence! Good call:)

Hi Arwen, oo cooking class, what flavours did they teach you? I'm yet to brave making icecream at home lol.

Hi Ffichiban, sad to admit, but I can't remember what the B&R version tastes like:| Sorry! You've planted a seed for my next trip there lol.

Hi Lorraine, I seem to be an ice cream fiend so I'll use any excuse (including weather) to eat/procure/write about it lol.

Hi Blanche, the 150ml tub was $3 and the 500ml tub was $6. Definitely worth every dollar:)

omg the peanut butter disaster sounds soooo me. It reminds me of my favourite Ben & Jerry ice cream flavour - Chubby Hubby with peanut butter pretzels in malt ice cream. So very good!

Howard said...

I had the Peanut Butter Disaster at the Dank St Festival, it was bloody awesome! You got me craving for it again.

Miss Honey said...

Hi Suze, I totally agree, Serendipity is Much Better value:D Also you don't need to deal with scowling wait staff lol.

Hi Helen, ooo you should definitely go try some then, and then let me know which one is better:) Chubby Hubby - love the name lol.

Hi Howard, you can join me - now that it's summer I'm constantly in a state of ice cream craving lol

I wish I was in sydney so I could try their ice cream. It's very cruel looking at those photos and reading the description and not being able to go out and buy some. I think i will have to make a special trip up north.

Miss Honey said...

Hi Maria, I'm sure you'd find many other things to try as well if you came up for a mini trip:)
