From restaurants to parlors, here’s where to find the latest creations using the soft stuff — beyond the ice cream truck.

But you can also find some inspired desserts on the menu, both of which are made using vanilla soft serve: The Buckeye Milkshake, with peanut butter, chocolate, crushed peanuts and whipped cream; and the hot fudge brownie sundae, topped with Virginia peanuts. $9 each; 155 Bleecker St., 646-756-5115, pigbleeckernyc.com Mister Dips Photo Credit: Meredith Deliso Andrew Carmellini’s seasonal food stand, operating from an elevated park next to the William Vale, does three things: burgers, waffle fries and dairy dips. Among the latter, there are three options: the Jacker Crax (caramel-coated vanilla soft serve with caramel popcorn and salted peanuts); Malter Cronkite (malt-chocolate twist soft serve); and, new this season, the Berry Gibbs (strawberry-coated strawberry soft serve with whipped cream, boozy strawberries and crushed Nilla Wafers). As an added bonus, you get a great view of the Manhattan skyline for free. $5/each; 111 N. 12th St., Williamsburg, misterdips.com Dominique Ansel Kitchen Photo Credit: Dominique Ansel Kitchen The soft serve window is back. And in addition to its signature burrata soft serve, visitors can find a few new flavors this season. First up, available now through the end of June, is a cold brew soft serve made with beans from La Colombe and topped with anise biscotti and milk foam. Then in July, look out for a white peach soft serve, with salted pistachios and lavender honey, followed by a dark chocolate olive oil soft serve with fig agrodolce and sea salt in August. All flavors are served in handmade honey-tuile waffle cones. Open Wednesday-Sunday, $7.25/each; 137 Seventh Ave., 212-242-5111, dominiqueanselkitchen.com Soft Swerve Photo Credit: Credit: Soft Swerve Chances are you’ve seen one of Soft Swerve’s cones on Instagram, which drew lines even in the dead of winter for its bold, colorful creations. The 6-month-old ice cream parlor features soft serve flavors like ube purple yam, black sesame and matcha green tea, and can be topped with Fruity Pebbles, marshmallows, toasted coconut, mochi and more. Choose between a red or black chocolate cone to further add some Instagram appeal. From $3.99; 85B Allen St., 646-476-6311, softswervenyc.com Orchard Grocer Photo Credit: Meredith Deliso If you don’t eat dairy, you can still indulge in some soft serve this summer. In addition to its sandwiches and snacks, this vegan deli serves generous portions of soy-based soft serve in chocolate, vanilla or swirl. Get it on its own or make it a sundae with ingredients like chocolate chips, marshmallows, granola and Date Lady Caramel Sauce. French vanilla cones are also available (extra $1.50).
