Flavour of the month
Artisan ice cream maker Laura Perez has launched her new online business just in time for summer. Inspired by traditional flavours from her childhood spent in Puerto Rico and invigorated to lead a healthier lifestyle after the birth of her third child last year, Perez is looking to take her unique flavours to the masses. Popular flavours so far have included a salted caramel ice cream with a pinch of maca and chocolate with Chinese five spice. Dairy- and gluten-free, the ice cream is churned and frozen in Hong Kong and new flavours will be added each month. www.wildmylk.com
