Pumpkin Spice Breeze is back!

It’s Autumn and Time for one of our Favorites!

A favorite everywhere.

Autum Breeze

Made using 100% pure Pumpkin and our special spice mixture.

My mom made a great Pumpkin Pie. Full of flavor, lots of spices, and a perfect way to end any meal. We love Pumpkin Pie so much! This drink is full of spices, pure pumpkin blended with cold milk. We use spices like cinnamon, nutmeg,  and clove.   Our Pumpkin Spice Breeze is back! Stop on by and celebrate the season!

Hawaii Style Lemonade for the Summer

It’s Summer in Hawaii!

Time for a refreshing tropical treat. 

Lemonade Hawaii Style!

Fresh, refreshing, and full of the flavors of Hawaii!

 

Lemonade reminds us all of summer.  Summer in Hawaii is amazing. The colors are bright and intense. The tradewinds refreshing and appreciated.  Summer here inspired us to create a special Hawaiian version of lemonade for you to enjoy. Made from fresh squeezed lemon juice, pink guava (a beautiful summer fruit), and lots of strawberries, blended together to create a sweet, tangy, refreshing, and very Hawaiian version of a classic. Available at our Popiu store but only for a limited time.

Fresh Basil Gelato and how we end up deciding on new flavors!

Fresh Kauai Grown Basil Gelato

Basil Gelato made from Kauai Grown Fresh Basil

We love what we do. To say we have a passion for gelato and chocolate really does not describe how much we love what we do. For the past 10 years gelato and chocolates has been at the center of our lives in many ways. One of the ways we think we are different than other places on Kauai is our emphasis on local flavors. Not just adding some coffee and macadamia nuts to a flavor, but finding ways to showcase many different ingredients found on Kauai. Sometimes the inspiration comes when we are shopping at one of the Sunshine Markets on Kauai. We have over 300 flavors in our recipe book right now and it constantly is being added to. Many times customers will ask us what inspired us to make a specific flavor. The truth is we have many sources of inspiration. Sometimes, like with our newest flavor, the inspiration comes from a local grower who brings to us something from their garden or farm. They just come in and say, hey, have you ever made anything with Jackfruit or Starfruit, or whatever they may have growing at that moment.

Introducing Pomegranate Lime Margarita Sorbetto

A great new dairy free sorbetto recipe!

Our gelato recipe book contains many recipes. Well over 200 and growing all the time. Despite the number of gelato recipes we have, people come into our gelato shop all the time asking for flavors they have seen elsewhere, viewed on a cooking show, or in the case of chefs, are looking for specific flavor profiles and pairing options. We love when people suggest to us flavor combinations we have not tried before.

One of our newest sorbetto flavors is tart pomegranate and locally grown Tahitian limes combined with just enough tequila to make you feel as if you are sitting on a beach in Cozumel. We were approached by a new Mexican restaurant concept on Kauai about making for them some Mexican inspired flavors. A specific flavor they asked for was Pomegranate Lime Margarita Sorbetto. A dairy free tart flavor which they wanted to be refreshing and tangy. We think this flavor is that and more!
