Jacqueline Landry’s life has changed significantly in the last two years. She moved from Las Vegas to Dallas, became a mother and quit her job as an energy and utilities consultant.

“As a consultant, I was on a plane Monday through Thursday,” she explains. “I knew I didn’t want to do that for the rest of my life.”

In November 2015, she opened Frost Gelato in Preston Hollow Village.

“[My husband and I] think this shopping center is going to be the next big thing,” Landry says. “We like being surrounded by restaurants and we like that [Preston Hollow Village] is in a family-oriented neighborhood.”

Swing by the minimalistic shop on your way to Trader Joe’s — it’s right across the parking lot. Flavors change monthly but strawberries and champagne, salted caramel, Guinness, chai tea and pistachio are all within Frost’s repertoire. Everything is made fresh onsite daily.

Feeling decadent? Go ahead and order a large, or the “grande.” Landry says gelato is made using considerably less butterfat than American ice cream, meaning it contains considerably fewer calories. But still beware of the brain freeze.
