Melon Ice Cream

Another summer favorite here in California are all the melon varieties. Use your favorite melon or try one with the strongest aroma. The fun thing about homemade ice cream is the change in flavors as you make it – if you taste this melon ice cream right after churning the melon note is lighter and […]

white nectarine ice cream

Summmery White Nectarine Ice Cream

No fruit triggers summer vibes for me more than white nectarines – the fragrance and flavor send me into hot sweaty days lugging all my bags around local farmers markets, feeling up and sniffing all the stone fruits. I prefer the lightness of a white nectarine and cooking the nectarine gently will bring out the […]

mint mojito ice cream

Mojito Ice Cream

I love mojitos and I love ice cream – so what do you think we had to do, when we found out alcohol is a secret ingredient to making ultra creamy ice cream? I know you’re also wondering: can you get drunk off boozy ice cream? Probably not, since ice cream with tons of alcohol […]

salted caramel ice cream

Salted Caramel Ice Cream

Salted Caramel is one of Carl’s favorite flavors to try when exploring a new ice creamery, so naturally we wanted to attempt to make this flavor ourselves. Using the Ph-rench style ice cream base, we get a deep delicious ice cream with a super heavenly soft texture! One of the reasons we love the Ph-rench […]

Carlienne's Cereal Milk Ice Cream

Carlienne’s “Cereal Milk” Ice Cream

We came across the Okinawan sweet potato while on our quest for ube, which is often mistaken for one another, but not the same thing at all. Here in the Bay Area, despite the high population of Filipinos, we couldn’t get our hands on fresh ube and the tuber labeled “ube” in the Asian markets […]

ultimate ube ice cream

The Ultimate Ube Ice Cream

I (Carl) have never been super into the foods of my own people (Filipino). I have my favorites here and there but I tend to not really go for Filipino food at all! People get pretty shocked when I express my mediocre feelings towards the cuisine since I am also Filipino but just because I […]
