Who knew creating customized ice cream could be so easy? Looking for dairy free ice cream that’s 100 percent not boring, or low-sugar ice cream that actually tastes good, or even just good old fashioned ice cream that no one else has ever tried? You can do all of that, and more, at a Sub Zero Nitrogen Ice Cream shop near you.

“How is that possible?” you might ask. Don’t worry. We’ve made it easy. (If choosing between 30 different flavors and almost as many mix-ins is “easy,” that is.)

While the decision on which flavor combination might be a hard choice, the process itself is actually really easy.

In short, you choose your cream, flavors, and mix-ins, and we blast it with liquid nitrogen that’s a cool -346° Fahrenheit.


What Does Liquid Nitrogen Do?

Great question! We’ll start by telling you what liquid nitrogen does not do. Liquid nitrogen will not change the flavor, smell, or taste of your ice cream creation. It also will not harm you, make you sick, or put anything dangerous in your body. In fact, 3 percent of your body weight is already nitrogen. Isn’t that neat? And nitrogen makes up more than half of the gas in the atmosphere. So we come into contact with nitrogen every day. The “liquid” part of nitrogen simply means it has been compressed from a gas state to a liquid state and made to be really, really cold.

So why do we use it to make ice cream? Liquid nitrogen instantly freezes your ice cream sensation. Typical ice cream is slow churned until frozen. While this might sound luxurious, it actually fills your ice cream with air and ice crystals, making it not-so-creamy. The faster you freeze ice cream, the less air gets in and the fewer ice crystals form. This means that liquid nitrogen ice cream is some of the creamiest ice cream in the world.
