And summer’s lease hath all too short a date…
Well it happened. We all knew it would. We tried what we could to stop it. But it happened. Labor Day. The end of summer. 
Shadows will soon grow longer, days will grow shorter. And we Milkmaids will work harder to churn out more ‘scream.  Yes, this summer was awesome, but worry not, we’re gonna make this Fall season even better. Starting with everything nice — some brown sugar and spice, with flavors 113 and 114, Chai Latte and Crummy Plum.

Step 4. There you have it! Our own “orchard” in a pint - a medley of raspberry and blackberry ice cream, with a touch of lavender. Inspired by Orchard Beach, this is one sweet, fresh, and luxurious pint. Helping members across NYC to live it up this summer.

Step 2. On yet another beach excursion, (what can we say, we REALLY love the beach), we stopped in to Lavender by the Bay. Fields of purple that smell like heaven? Of course we had to make a detour! Plus, we knew a touch of lavender would compliment the tartness of the berries in this pint.

Step 1. Foraging was fun — we spent sunny mornings at the market finding the freshest berries to craft our own “orchard” in this ‘scream. Then we turned those berries into a bright fruity base by macerating them.

Flavor of the Month: Flavor #112. The Orchardblackberry-raspberry lavender ice cream
The Orchard is inspired by another one of our annual beach excursions. This time to the Riviera! The Riviera of the Bronx, that is, at Orchard Beach. It gets a bad rap (the beach, not our flavor, don’t worry), but it’s a great NYC beach excursion, and rich in history to boot!
We crafted our own “orchard” in a pint - a medley of raspberry and blackberry ice cream, with a touch of lavender. This is one sweet, fresh, and luxurious pint. After all, it’s all about the lavish life in the Riviera (of the Bronx).

Step 4. What pairs perfectly with beer? A salty-sweet treat! Well, that pretty much pairs perfectly with everything. So we threw in bits of pretzels from Martin’s Pretzels and a swirl of caramel from Spoonable. Layers and layers of pretzels and caramel.

Step 2. We create a dangerously fun base using vanilla malt (just like the old soda shoppes used!) and our pilsner reduction.

Step 1. We’re performing a little Coney Island magic of our own! Watch us turn a pint of beer into a pint of ice cream… 
First we reduce the beer to get the boldest beeriest taste..

We’re back and cooler than ever.
You didn’t think we’d leave you sweltering in the August heat without some ice cream to chill out, did you? 
As you may know, we took a little summer break. But it was no vacation - we were hard at working planning for milkmade 2.0 (or 3.0 or 4.0? who knows at this point!)
But we DID take a few days here and there to explore the city and hit the beach — all in the name of ice cream R&D we assure you! Based on our favorite summer-in-NYC adventures, we crafted two beach-inspired flavors: Coney Island Crunch and The Orchard. Hope they inspire you to get out there and live it up with what remains of summer!

MilkMade and the Million Peaches!
It’s National Peach Ice Cream Day, so you know we had to celebrate. We’re digging up recipes from summers past like flavor #91, Millions of Peaches and flavor #20, Peppery Peach. If we had our little way, we’d eat peach  ’scream every day. How about you?
