Nanouk is one of those addresses you have to know in Brussels. Especially now that the summer days call for ice cream and outdoors wandering.

Nanouk is a little food-truck selling homemade artisan ice pops. Pistacchio, watermelon-mint, apricot-basil, rose and rhubarb… Season-inspired ice cream and sorbets using natural top-quality ingredients and no preservatives. Christine, the lady behind this slowfood project chooses each product carefully. She tries to buy local and organic, whenever possible.

Not the biggest of ice cream fans herself, she crafts the ice-pops with a purpose: giving joy to people (have you seen kids when they’re about to get ice cream?) and making healthy snacks for her children to eat.

You can find the cute truck Thursdays at the Parvis de Saint Gilles Market, Fridays lunchtime at the Frunch (BIP – Place ) and every now and then at the Chatelain market and the various fairs and events that mark the Brussels summer agenda. I had a pistacchio pop last weekend with my friend Sarah at the Super Mouche festival at Parc de Forest. So keep an eye on the Facebook page to track the ice-pops down!

Also, you can order a batch and stash your freezer! Plus they make the perfect little dessert at parties and get-togethers. Christine gave me a party-box for my birthday and boy was that a goo idea!!! 25 mini ice-pops with 5 flavors of your choice. Believe me, you’ll melt.
