Selena Gomez’s ice cream endeavor is expanding.
A year after launching a line of ice cream flavors with Serendipity3, the iconic New York City restaurant now offers the Selena Sundae on its menu. Created by Gomez, the $29.95 dessert features Cookies & Cream remix ice cream covered in hot fudge, cream-filled cookie crumbles, pink sugar and whipped cream and is topped off by a banana and a cherry. A percentage of proceeds from the sundae will go to Gomez’s Rare Impact Fund to support access to mental health resources.

Gomez is now an investor and a partner in Serendipity3 and Serendipity Brands.
“My memories at Serendipity date back to when I was a kid and I came to New York City for the first time. I’ve always loved this restaurant, and I am excited to celebrate its reopening by adding a sundae I created to the menu,” Gomez said in a statement on Wednesday.
