Strawberry Graham Cracker

A few weeks back we had a request for a flavor that featured graham crackers.  We love and encourage flavor requests, and were happy to run with that  idea and pair it with our annual outpouring of love for strawberries.  As we often do during the few weeks strawberries are available, we can’t help ourselves from creating at least a few flavors with them.  Maybe it’s pure selfishness on our part, but we can’t get enough of them.










For the graham cracker, we had to do a little processing first to make sure it holds up in the ice cream. So we combine with some butter, salt and mayyybe a little sugar and puree in a food processor until a new buttery dough forms.

The mix is then spread out on a sheet pan and baked off in the oven until nice and crunchy, then broken up in preparation to go into the ice cream.

The strawberries are cooked down and make into a jam, and then added straight into the ice cream before the churn.

The end result is a fresh strawberry ice cream full of buttery, crunchy chunks of graham cracker. For sale soon, at our kitchen.

Pumpkin Pie

Happy Thanksgiving y’all! Being Thanksgiving today, it should be of no surprise that our second installment of holiday inspired flavors is non other than pumpkin pie. Or is it a surprise? We just had to. Yes, we could have gone all FrozBroz on you and made a pumpkin feta with fried sage, but we couldn’t resist the obvious…it’s a Thanksgiving tradition.



Pumpkin: Probably the most recognized symbol of harvest time here in the United States. For those unaware, that pumpkin in the can comes from one of these beauties right here…which came from Featherstone Farms in Rushford Village, MN.

Roast it, mash it, add eggs, sugar, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and cream. What do you get?







Pumpkin Pie!

Pumpkin has a lot of moisture content, which doesn’t react well in ice cream, but after it’s baked into a custard pie, no problem.

Pie crust = good







Graham Cracker Crust = Fan-friggin-tastic!


Here we have crushed graham crackers, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, cloves and salt ready to be mixed up and baked off.







Graham cracker crust – another great stand alone ice cream flavor.


Here we toss it in at the end for a little salty crunch.








It’s all here! Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream.
