made it to Stogo in the East Village. It’s been a place I’ve wanted to check out since learning about the organic, dairy-free ice cream joint. They have a ton of delicious flavors (like the combo I got: Salted Caramel Pecan and Mexican Chocolate) – all of which are made from scratch using premium ingredients and leaving out stuff like refined sugars, preservatives, artificial flavors, gluten, or animal products. Even their cups and utensils are made from sustainable, biodegradable materials. Does dessert get any better?

MilkMade Ice Cream
ice cream, made locally from sustainable ingredients in small batches right here in New York. Oh, and it’s delivered to your door. Sounds kind of amazing, right? That’s what MilkMade Ice Cream is all about. They use the freshest ingredients, and by doing so, support the local food economy. The dairy, for example, comes from sustainable farms in the area. MilkMade Ice Cream creates new flavors on a monthly basis like Salted Caramel n Shortbread, Mint Julep and EVOO&C (EVOO ice cream, layered wtih a homemade Mast Brothers Chocolate swirl). There is one catch, due to limited quantities and distribution membership is required. So sign up here – with the unique flavors, delicious ingredients and the fact that it’s delivered to your doorstep, I don’t know why you wouldn’t.

Chocolate-Banana Ice Cream
why not whip this up? It’s ICE CREAM without the cream and is made from 1 ingredient (well, maybe 2 or 3 – depending on how creative you want to be). Rumor has it, this banana-based ice cream is super delicious, nutritious and the ideal dessert for summertime! I’ve seen several variations since being introduced to the concept – some with vanilla (2 teaspoons to be exact), brown sugar & cinnamon – no fancy machine required, so the options really are endless. Here’s one with cocoa from hilaroux. One, two, three – it’s that easy!
1) Freeze a banana
2) Combine with 2 tbsp cocoa powder
3) Blend until smooth and creamy.
