Whether you are battling an intolerance, trying to fix your “leaky gut,” or just trying to step up your health game, it can be hard to find a dessert that is cool, sweet, and good for the entire family. Luckily for Angelenos, our city is filled with innovative foodies that are finding ways to make cool treats and healthy eats that actually taste good!
