Churn Up the Cream with Eva’s Helado
What happens when two unusual, and highly compatible textures and flavors come together? You get the wholesome creamy goodness of sweet cream blended together with Mexican vanilla and churro swirls to indulge your sweet tooth with a panache of Latin flavor. California-based McConnell’s Family Dairy has been crafting fine ice cream for 70 years, using local ingredients like Central Coast grass-grazed milk and cream, eggs from organically fed, cage-free chickens, and pure cane sugar.
Three simple ingredients are the base for this dense, velvety, and consistently smooth texture that has now churned into Eva’s Helado. There are no stabilizers, fillers or preservatives. What sets Eva’s apart is that everything is made from scratch, like home-baked cookie crumbles and jams that turn an ordinary ice cream into an artisanal, hand-crafted experience. McConnell’s recently installed state-of-the-art freezers and ice cream making equipment to continue whipping up the finest ice cream, using only pure and natural ingredients.
Born and raised in Sweden, Chef and Restaurateur Eva Ein was inspired to create her new line of ice cream through her affinity for exploring different cultures in a global culinary world, and to combine those global flavors with the traditions of ice cream making at McConnell’s. Her goal was to create a line of super premium pints that take an American tradition to a multicultural level: “I’ve always enjoyed putting our spin on classic flavors for McConnell’s and brought this sensibility to the flavor process for Eva’s as well.
Through research on Latinx culinary traditions and flavor profiles, as well as honing in on the flavors we wanted to launch, we put our spin on Dulce de Leche, Horchata, Mango, Strawberries and Vanilla. We deconstructed a traditional alfajor for Chocolate Caramel Swirl. This will be our approach to every new flavor from Eva’s.”
New Yorkers can now look forward to the arrival of “West Cold” delicacies, straight from the Left Coast, like Café Con Donuts made with coffee ice cream and chunks of cinnamon-spiked donuts, plus Horchata & Churro Swirl, a sweet cream infused with cinnamon and paired with a swirl of churro batter. These, and an array of other “exciting, Latin-inspired flavors,” can be found in the freezers of local NYC supermarkets this fall.
