Creamy delights and a giveaway, too!
This guest blog entry is from MSPI Mama, a blog dedicated to delicious MSPI friendly recipes.
One of the rites of summer that I always enjoyed as a child was the whole family piling into our rust-orange Ford LTD station wagon and driving to the edge of our tiny town to the lone drive-in hamburger joint. But we weren’t there for hamburgers. We wanted ice cream. Looking back at those memories, I know that there wasn’t anything special about those ice cream cones, but they were cold and creamy and they hit the spot on a hot summer’s night. Plus, it was a special activity for our family to do together, and now that I’m a mom, I covet those same opportunities with my kids.
But, there’s a tiny problem: MSPI. All of us going for ice cream isn’t an option when a member of the family is on a dairy-free diet! But, my friends, I got to take ALL my kids (including my MSPI girl Caroline) to an ice cream parlor last week! It was such a joy to see my little Caroline digging into a cone of her own. And this wonderful memory was made possible by a wonderful little shop in the heart of Omaha’s historic Dundee called eCreamery!
In addition to wonderful, freshly made ice creams and gelatos, eCreamery makes MSPI-friendly sorbettos! And, holy cow, are they amazing! If you live in the Omaha area, you MUST go visit their shop. It’s located right on the corner of50th and Underwood. It is definitely worth the trip if you live on the outskirts of town, and you will not be disappointed. Every day they offer four flavors of MSPI-friendly sorbettos that are beyond amazing.
But you don’t have to live in Omaha to enjoy this fabulous product … the brilliant masterminds ateCreamery ship their fabulous creations nationwide!You get to pick your own custom flavors, they mix it up right in their store, pack it up (on dry ice!) and ship it out their door. It comes to your doorstep icy cold and ready to enjoy. How awesome is that?! You can even have a custom label made. (They gave me a pint of “Andrea’s Pick Me Up” … decadent chocolate sorbetto. Yum!) You can order one of their Special Occasion Gift Packs or Create Your Own Flavor with fun mix-ins … just make sure they’re MSPI-friendly. There are so many options! You can even get cute little Individual Party Cups. Wouldn’t that be ADORABLE for a first birthday party?!
And I’m not the only one to have fallen in love with eCreamery. Martha Stewart, Nate Berkus and Oprah (as well as many, many others!) have raved about these delectable treats. If it’s good enough for Martha, you know it’s good enough for MSPI Mama!
But here is the absolute best part about all of this … eCreamery has graciously agreed to sponsor a giveaway right here on my little blog! I am just giddy with excitement about all of this! Thank you, eCreamery!
