Avocados are nutritional all-stars, with more than 20 different vitamins and minerals. In fact, research shows that those who enjoy avocados have more nutritious diets, and are thinner with smaller waistlines.

We All Scream for Ice Cream

In honor of National Ice Cream Day on July 21, we couldn’t resist delving deeper into one America’s all-time beloved desserts. In fact, the United States is the top consumer of ice cream in the world! We are all familiar with our tried and true favorites, but what else is out there? For those with dietary concerns or just interested in trying something new, options abound for other kinds of cold sweet treats. If you are overwhelmed by the variety of pints lining your freezer aisle, here are some facts to help:

1. Ice Cream: The old standby of childhood memories, the main ingredients in traditional ice cream are milk and cream.These components result in high fat and calorie content, but also give ice cream that signature rich and creamy taste. Churning the ice cream hard and fast gives it added air for a smooth, fluffy texture. Two of our new favorites are Three Twins and Straus Family Creamery, both hailing from local Petaluma, CA and taking ice cream to the next level.

When we decided to make ice cream, we wanted it to have a rich and creamy taste that would transport your taste buds to an old-fashioned ice cream parlor. We found a decades-old traditional recipe that accomplishes exactly that. Our ice cream is made locally in San Leandro using milk sourced from California farms.
