We’ve all started to sweat the weather. Hot days mean hot nights, and there’s no better way to cool off than to grab America’s favorite frozen summertime dessert, ICE CREAM! Lucky for you, we’ve got plenty of choices at Provisions for those of our shoppers who are looking for a local, natural break from the heat.
If you’ve never tried Blue Marble Ice Cream, you owe yourself a favor. Founded and produced in Boerum Hill, they use only the best natural ingredients to make their classic flavors. Try their coffee and chip ‘n’ mint! Or how about Steve’s Ice Cream? Modeled after a 100-year-old ice cream shop in Massachusetts, Steve’s now produces it’s funky flavors right here in the BK, right alongside some of our favorite local food purveyors. We’ve got their Brooklyn Blackout (made with Hudson Valley Fresh milk and Taza chocolate), Strawberry Ricotta (using Salvatore Brooklyn’s signature firm ricotta cheese) and Sugar Cookie Dough (made with rich coconut cream so it’s dairy free!)
Last but not least is our favorite partner in frozen decadence, Adirondack Creamery. Using no whey, corn starch, thickeners, corn syrup or any artificial ingredients, Adirondack sources their milk from various farms throughout the Hudson Valley and freezes & packages their product on site to capture the absolute freshest taste possible. Among their other rich, classic flavors, keep your eye open for Black Raspberry, a seasonal treat sure to cool even the hottest of afternoons. So check out our frozen section for these and other delightful summer treats (stay tuned to taste another Brooklyn-made ice cream next weekend…)
