Organic Lavender Ice Cream at the Co-op

The newest flavor to grace the ice cream scoops in the Co-op Deli is made with organic lavender. It must be tasted to be believed.

How did lavender, the familiar garden flower, become the focus of an ice cream? A single bite reveals why: delicate floral, slightly minty flavors dance on the tongue as the organic lavender flowers blossom in the vanilla infused sweet cream – it’s tasty!

But lavender is no new comer to the culinary world, its dried flowers and infused syrups have been used to flavor teas and desserts for generations. Lavender is also traditionally used as a soothing folk medicine to promote relaxation and as an antiseptic.

Come support your local Co-op as it makes delicious organic ice cream and experiments with traditional flavor boundaries. Try this seasonal offering and experience a different sort of handmade ice cream, with new flavors that deliver an unforgettable dessert experience.
