where can you get the freshest ice cream handcrafted to order right in front of you and get to see it get frozen with nitrogen? At Creamistry of course, the newest ice cream shop in The Colony.
All the ice cream at Creamistry is made fresh to order. First you chose from one of the four different bases. The signature premium base is the creamiest and most decadent. If you prefer organic, they have that, if you want non-dairy you can choose from the vegan coconut or non-dairy sorbet. Next you choose one of the 30-plus flavors and then toppings from a list of 35-plus options that include candy, cookies, cereal, fruits and sauces. Then comes the most fun part, the mixture is rapidly frozen using liquid nitrogen at -321 degrees.

It looks like a science experiment with smoke flowing out of the bowl. What happens when the nitrogen hits the base is that it freezes so fast that ice crystals don’t have a chance to develop resulting in a really rich and creamy treat.
when asked what was his favorite is, Owner Chirag Patel said, “right now I really like the Captain’s Breakfast” which is one of the creations on the specialties menu. It is made with Vanilla ice cream with Captain Crunch cereal, mixed in with fresh strawberries, bananas and chocolate sauce.
