Last updated July 13, 2020 by Totally Boise

Ice cream is said to be one of the coolest desserts in history, making July the perfect month to dedicate to the refreshing and creamy dessert. Below are Boise’s top five ice cream shops to celebrate National Ice Cream Month.

Reed’s Dairy:

Founded in 1955, Reed’s dairy ice cream farm to freezer process in itself would make the mini-road trip to Idaho Falls worthwhile. However, Reed’s also has two Boise locations, making it that much easier to scoop up some of the freshest ice creams. Grab a cup or quart of their smooth and creamy ice cream. Strawberry cheesecake, Rocky Road, and Creamy Caramel are among their many flavors. Reed’s Dairy is doubling up their stamps for National Ice Cream Month, be sure to grab a stamp card for free ice cream!

Known for their ice cream infused with beer and wine flavors, The STIL is a Boise favorite. Coming up on three years, The STIL whips up ice cream for everyone. Options include traditional dairy ice cream, vegan, and dairy-free flavors. However, it’s the alcohol-infused flavors with beer and wine pairings to complement the ice cream that typically catches attention.

The STIL is always creating unique flavors like their Idaho Wilderness with lavender and berries and their Strawberry Rosé.
