Josh & John's Naturally Homemade Ice Cream
John & John's Naturally Homemade Ice Cream is one of the top-rated dessert joints in Colorado Springs. John & John's claims to be the only shop in Colorado that still uses the slow churn approach to making ice cream, which requires more time and resources but helps give the ice cream all sorts of subtle flavors that are missing from the ice cream of other shops. Some of Josh & John's most noteworthy ice cream flavors include Mocha Java Jolt, Dutch Chocolate and Oatmeal Cookie. In any case, if you can think of a flavor, Josh & John's probably has it.

Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt
Instead of having ice cream, why not have some frozen yogurt instead? The taste is similar-or better, if you really love yogurt-but the calorie content is lower. Orange Leaf has frozen yogurt stores all around the country, though only two in Colorado-one in Parker and one in Colorado Springs-which makes them somewhat of a treat should you come across one. And if you like your spoonful of frozen dessert to come topped with chunks of mango, peach, strawberry or any other fruit that might strike your fancy, that's just another reason to get frozen yogurt over ice cream.
