50 Tastes: Maple Creemees, Vermont

Soft-serve, you say? More like maple creemee. Hold the fake stuff, it's only pure syrup here.


Yes, it's called a creemee. Or is it creamy? Maybe creamee? How about a creemie? Spelling aside, this delicacy is not just simply what the rest of the country refers to as soft-serve ice cream. There's more than just the 5-6% butterfat cream base, pure maple syrup, and truly melt-in-your-mouth experiences to these. There's a history and culture to Vermont maple creemees. Maple and dairy go hand in hand when it comes to the state's history and continues in present-day agriculture. Where else comes to mind when you hear the words "maple syrup"?! (Besides Canada, of course). Vermont is also one of the few states where I can provide my own insight on both the state and taste. And to that, all I can say is there are indeed cows at every corner and maple creemee signs not too far behind.

Side note, this recipe is based on a Homemade No-Churn Soft Serve Ice Cream Recipe from Emma's Goodies. Because of that, it uses pure maple sugar rather than syrup, but still provides the same great maple flavor nonetheless!


No-Churn Maple Creemees


700 g heavy cream

200 g granulated sugar

135 g maple sugar

1/2 tsp pure maple flavoring

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

3/4 tsp salt


  1. Add the cream, sugars, and salt to a small saucepan. Heat over medium low just to dissolve the sugar, but be careful to not overheat.

  2. Remove from heat and add the maple flavor, vanilla, and salt. Transfer to the bowl of a stand mixer and chill in the fridge for approx 2 hours or until thoroughly chilled.

  3. Once chilled, whip the cream base just until soft peaks are achieved.

  4. Transfer to another container, smooth out the top, cover with parchment and a lid and freeze for 10-12 hours or overnight.

  5. Add the frozen creemee to a piping bag fitted with a large star tip or french star tip straight from the freezer.

  6. Immediatly pipe the ice-cream into a cone of your choice in a spiral. Top with your desired toppings and enjoy!
