Freeze Pleeze: Taking Ice Cream to a Whole New Level!

I scream, you scream, we ALL scream for ice cream!

It’s not every day that I get to indulge in frozen desserts. Actually, with my lactose-challenged tummy, I rarely even think about going out. After years of attempting to convince myself that lactase pills would save me from ending up in the fetal position, I finally accepted the fact that if I wanted ice cream (not sorbet, because, let’s face it, the two will NEVER compare!), I’d just have to settle for a pint of the dairy-free stuff at home.

Freeze Pleeze Almond Milk Ice Cream

That was until this bowl of frozen ALMOND MILK perfection appeared before me a mere FIVE MINUTES after being poured from a carton.

Two weeks ago, my little town of Clarksville welcomed a new business called Freeze Pleeze. An ice cream parlor promising things like all-natural ingredients and dairy-free alternatives with a variety of flavors all made to order and FLASH FROZEN before your eyes! After a friend of mine raved about their rose-flavored ice cream (?!), I knew I just had to check it out. So after a hot day at the park last week, I packed along a few friends and strolled over to the 50’s-style parlor ready to be awed and amazed.

Freeze Pleeze

With so many flavors and different treats to choose from, I’ll admit, it took me a minute (or ten) to narrow it down. After calling dibs on a sample of my friend’s cup of rose, I finally decided on the almond milk peanut butter with crushed Oreos!

Then I stood gaping at the counter while all my dreams of frozen confection came true…

Freeze and stir, freeze and stir, and BOOM! Ice cream in my face!

It really was amazing to watch the whole process. I couldn’t believe it only took a few minutes to come together. While they offer the usual suspects as far as toppings go, none of their ice creams have any added sugars or binders. And when it comes to the price, it’s a steal! My medium cup cost less than $5.00 and I was so full when we left! Plus…

FREE SPRINKLES!

The owners were incredibly welcoming. Since they are just starting out, they asked our opinions (my other two friends ordered peanut butter banana and CHOCOLATE peanut butter banana…obviously my friends have exquisite taste) and told us to feel free to voice any concerns if we had them so they could better refine their recipes. But honestly, after a round of musical cups to sample each flavor, none of us could find a thing to complain about!

And now, my mission is to try every flavor! I’m having visions of chocolate coconut milk ice cream mixed with slivered almonds in my near future. Hey, you guys KNOW my infatuation with that combo! Oh man, it’s gonna be a tough summer! 😉

Have you ever been to an ice cream place like this?

What’s your favorite topping/add-in?

    I have never heard of this type of place before but it seems too cool! I am an ice cream and frozen yogurt lover and I would be all over this place! My favorite add ins are heath bar and toffee pieces. :-)

  2. Whoa. I am totally fascinated. And I can’t believe it’s not like $10 a cone. How does this not exist in ATL?!

  3. That sounds like such an awesome place! Though I can not eat Ice Cream (my teeth hurt) – I would go for ALLLL the toppings!

  4. Yeah, so I NEED to come visit so we can go get some dairy-free decadence! :)

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      You do! This is officially my new take-everyone-who-visits-so-I-can-make-them-jealous-and-they’ll-consider-moving-here place! Lol

  5. Oh wow – I need some of that dairy free awesomeness in my life!!!

    Darn you Scotland for being so behind the times!

  6. oh wow-that’s so cool! I’ve never been to a place like that but it looks like fun!

  7. I am so extremely jealous of this! We have a few of these made to order places, but none of them offer nondairy options (yet…I do live in the hippie/vegan/gf/etc capital of the world).

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      “yet” <- Hahaha, so true! I'm sure something's in the works already...and if not, rest assured that I have plenty more to be jealous of! 😉

  8. Ahhh that’s so cool! We have a froyo place nearby that offers non-dairy options, but nothing like actually breaking out the liquid nitrogen. Fancy!

  9. That is awesome! I don’t need to eat dairy free, but would still visit this place…frequently 😉

  10. That looks so good! I’ve never heard of almond milk ice cream before, but I would definitely try it! My favorite ice cream place is one from my hometown, Holy Cow. Nothing on their menu costs more than $4…a “small” sundae (which is the size of my head) is like $2.50. Aaaand now I wish I was home and eating Holy Cow 😉

  11. Wow this is such a cool idea! I wonder if this will be the next big trend after the fro yo craze dies down?

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      You know, I thought the same thing! And as a person who can seriously go NUTS with a DIY toppings bar, I was even MORE entertained by the liquid nitrogen! Lol

  12. Is it liquid nitrogen!? That’s awesome and amazing, so glad you get to enjoy carton-free ice cream :) My favorite topping is hot fudge or peanut butter sauce… we dont have an awesome ice cream place like this but there is really good one a mile away I walk to occasionally (often)… on Sunday I tried their Mint Cookies and Cream- first time I had ever seen that anywhere, yum!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Yes ma’am! So freaking awesome, huh? I felt like a kid the way I was practically glued to the glass! Lol! Mmmm, peanut butter saaaaaaaaw-se! *insert heart-eyed emoji here* 😉

  13. Such a cool place! I’d love to go to a place like this! My favorite topping is oreo cookies or brownie bites over PB fro yo! YUM!!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Oreo cookies and peanut butter were just meant to be…I’m so glad you’re part of the cool club! 😉

  14. OMG. What a great concept for you guys to have AND for there to be a variety of options for those who don’t handle dairy well! We have the nitrogen style gelato called N2 but it’s mass produced…fail whale.

    Sorbet…pfft that does not count. You may aswell have banana ‘ice cream’. I like the notion of free sprinkles.

  15. I love the support for the local businesses. Always a great thing and so it having a wonderful ice cream parlor in your neighborhood.
    We have a fabulous gelato place in ours which does offer dairy free options. They use coconut milk and they try to get as many ingredients locally, and it’s all natural. Makes me happy. I shall take you there the next time you’re in town. :)

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Ohhhhhh! Is that the one where you and the hubby had that amazing sundae? I can’t remember the specifics other than the fact that I was green with envy and drooling all over myself! Lol

  17. Ah! SO excited. I was Googling this place for location info but don’t do a lot of dairy. Now I know I’ve got to try it. Nerdy Birdy, Tree of Life and now coconut milk icecream in Clarksville?! This place isn’t so bad.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      I just read your post! I’m so glad you liked it…and I still can’t get over your pictures! They turned out awesome!
