The Best Strawberry Ice Cream

In the frozen dessert department, frozen yogurt and Van Leeuwen ice cream (which seriously sucks) have over-saturated my taste buds. But there’s a small shop in Brooklyn that I’ll never grow tired of. Everything about Blue Marble, from the countertop to the ice cream, is sustainable. During a time when “organic,” “farm fresh,” and “fair trade” are often just marketing terms, Blue Marble lives up to its image.

The fresh strawberry ice cream is amazing. No icy shards, just sweet and tangy fruit. Not like those giant, bland Driscoll’s berries. These strawberries taste like the kind from the farmers market. The fair trade chocolate ice cream is very good, but even a chocoholic like me would rather have the strawberry. It’s that good.

    Jessie, that’s the spirit! It’s never too cold for ice cream.

    It may be cold in temperature, but it warms the soul. 🙂

    I’ll definitely remind my Brooklyn peeps about Blue Marble – I didn’t know they had a location in Prospect Heights too. Which store was first?

    Hi Niko, the Atlantic Ave. location came first. I really like them because they have a mom-and-pop feel. One of the guys behind the counter was so nice!

    This looks amazing. I am an ice cream fanatic. Plus, strawberry can be done so well….I am glad to see that this place does. I am going to check it out since I am not too far from either of these locations. Thanks for the review.
