Flavor of the Month: Flavor #108. Black & White Pintone half chocolate shortbread ice cream, one half vanilla fondant ice cream with chunks of black and white cookies 
Is there anything more New York than New York? And is there a cookie more New York than the Black and White cookie? A spongey shortbread cookie, dressed in perfect halves — chocolate fudge and vanilla fondant. Inspired by this iconic NYC treat, we crafted the Black and White Pint. Half chocolate shortbread, half vanilla fondant, and chunks of Black and Whites from 1902-established family-run bakery, Glaser’s, in Yorkville (that’s the Upper East!). What side will you eat first?

The making of flavor #107, Basil Chip

STEP 5 - We label each pint by hand with a custom label for each pint. Then, naturally, we pack each pint by hand. How’s that for a Mint Chip makeover!?

STEP 4 - Once the basil is infused, and the chocolate is chipped (yes, we chip our own chocolate in-house), we churn the base and add the two together.

A bite of our Gotham Basil Chip will first be fresh, sweet — basily! Delicate and light - but oddly basily. Crunch down on the chipped chocolate in every bite. The cacao, dark and lingering, will soon overcome the basil. Repeat with each bite.

STEP 3 – You can’t make a chip without the chocolate! And Flavor # 107 calls for a whole lot of the sweet stuff from Mast Brothers. We used their single-origin Dominican Republic, a 70% cacao chocolate.

STEP 2 – To get a real basil flavors, we steep real basil in our cream. No fake extracts. No green dye. Just real, fresh basil. And A LOT of it!

STEP 1 – Like the start of any true MilkMade flavor, we forage for the best ingredients in town. The freshest, the most local, the most sustainable, and the most coolest (yes, most coolest - from the most coolest dudes) ingredients in town. For our basil - that means Gotham Greens Basil.

Flavor of the Month: Flavor #107, Gotham Basil Chipfresh basil ice cream with chipped chocolate
Mint chip ice cream needs a makeover. It’s been around since 1973 after all. And c’mon - most of what you get out there has a fake mint color and a fake mint taste. No bueno. So we’d like to introduce you to your new favorite flavor - a mint chip remix to replace all mint chips - Gotham Basil Chip. With chipped chocolate from Mast Brothers and Gotham Greens basil that’s grown on the rooftops of Brooklyn, it doesn’t get any fresher than this.

Foraging Spotlight: Gotham GreensFor flavor #107, Gotham Basil Chip, our “best of the best” basil comes from Gotham Greens. They’re “farmers that live in apartments” and grow their produce on the rooftops of Brooklyn. They took fresh to whole new levels with their flagship greenhouse. Built in 2010, it is the first commercial scale rooftop greenhouse in the United States. They’re awesome. And so is their basil. Pick some up at Whole Foods this week!

Step 5: And there you have it folks, a donut in a pint - our Maple Glazed Donut!

Step 4: You can’t make a donut pint without some doughnuts! We spent our afternoon chopping up all the confections and packing them into our pints.

It brought back memories of our hometown donut shop where we stopped once a week for a treat after Sunday School. Or in the summers, more regular visits to the beachside Surfin’ Donut Shop. Now it’s Brooklyn’s Dough. With help from our pals there, we stuffed this flavor full of glazed goodness! If you can’t get your hands on a pint of our Maple Glazed Donut, try picking up one of their originals at their Brooklyn shop.

Step 3: Churning! The ice cream base really tastes like a Maple Donut. Don’t believe us? Here’s what some members have to say: 

"Why oh why is there only 1 maple? Made my knees weak. Unbelievable."

"Wow… the Maple ice cream with the maple maple glazed donuts is soooooooooo good! You will notice at least a few more monthly subscribers by morning because of it!"

"Maple Glazed Donut tastes like Vermont."
