Hi there! We’re Katy and Gwen, and we're on a mission to beckon all ice cream lovers back to real ice cream.

It all started with Katy's Lactose Intolerance....

As an ice cream lover, Katy couldn’t imagine giving up her favorite dessert or settling for ice cream “alternatives” that just didn’t taste the same. Soy, almond and coconut just weren’t going to cut it. As a pediatric ICU nurse, she knew there was a solution and took to her kitchen and churned up something better…REAL ICE CREAM, without the lactose.

And Gwen's sympathetic sweet tooth....

When Gwen met Katy in college, they soon became fast friends with a shared love of ice cream. Gwen sympathized with Katy’s struggle to find a lactose free ice cream that tasted great and felt like the real deal. They felt no one should have to miss out on ice cream because of lactose intolerance. With that mission in mind, they created REAL ice cream with all the same quality and ingredients they both loved, free of the lactose Katy couldn’t have. Finally, they could share the same pint - no compromises.

LIFE IS FULL OF COMPROMISE AND SACRIFICES – BUT GREAT ICE CREAM SHOULDN’T BE ONE OF THEM.
