Chillin at Chill-N…

As the summer sadly comes to an end (well it’s always summer in Miami), we made our last official summer ice-cream run last night to our new favorite ice-cream shop.  It’s so cool, it’s chillin (the name of the place)!  Not only is Chill-N Nitrogen Ice-Cream absolutely delicious, but the way it is made is what really makes your mouth drop. They make their ice-cream with Nitrogen, yes folks, Nitrogen!  The shop is quite small, but in my opinion, small places are typically the best!  No matter when we’ve visited this place (usually on the weekends), the line is outside the door.

How they make  ice-cream!

When you first walk in, you will find a cool Periodic Table inspired board of all delicious bases, flavors, and toppings, or as they call them, their mix-N’s…brownie bits, mint, marshmallows, Nutella, cookie bites, white chocolate chips, & much more.  You first choose your size of dessert, then whether you’d like ice-cream or yogurt.  Next, you choose from over 10 base flavors, and lastly, you get to choose all of your add-ins.

Flavors and topping!

Then the magic begins… While regular ice cream is frozen over night or frozen instantly through commercial freezers, nitrogen flash-freezes the liquid base as it is churned. The nitrogen makes the ice cream really cold, and since it’s all prepared as you watch, you can see the nitrogen fog pour out of the mixers.  It’s all really cool, and even the adults in line are watching the process in amazement!

Ice Cream in the making!

The only drawback is that since the ice-creams are made fresh on the spot, you can’t try the different flavors.  But no worries, I’m sure any combination you come up with will be heavenly!  The first time I visited I got the cake batter ice-cream mixed in with the Oreos and cookie dough (now my daughter’s favorite).  Another favorite of mine is strawberry ice-cream mixed in with white chocolate chips. Absolutely delicious, I’ve never tasted creamier ice-cream!

  1. OMG I have to visit this place! Fresh ice cream is the best, and I think it has educational benefits for the kids too since they get to see the actual chemistry process take place right in front of them.

  2. This just blows my mind! I bet I could chill here all day & come up with 511136156153 different combinations. Do you think they could use the nitrogen to flash freeze my fat cells from growing? LOL

  3. I saw this concept on Shark Tank I thought it was the coolest thing. I think for me it’s best not to have a bunch of different flavors to try. I don’t need to eat more ice-cream! I would love to visit this shop and buy ice cream from it. I bet it is awesome to watch them make it.

  4. This place is what my dreams are made of! I have to drop by! A trip to Miami is in my near future, it’s only a 3.5 or 4 hour drive. Maybe they’ll open up a shop here in Orlando but until then, I need to head down there!
