Your Homemade Ice Cream Destination

When you’re craving homemade ice cream, nothing else will do. 

Savor a scoop—or two—of handcrafted creamy goodness at Sweet Alps Ice Cream, which opened last summer in Spruce Creek Shoppes Plaza in Summerfield across from Walmart.

Owners Chris and Cathrine Flury let their Swiss heritage inspire the creamery’s flavors and believe that using high-quality, natural ingredients makes all the difference. 

“We constantly explore new flavors and trends. Our Swiss roots have taught us to blend the best of both worlds–the American craft of ice cream making with the Alpine spirit of quality and authenticity,” says Cathrine.

“We like to bring a little bit of the Alps and Black Forest with our ice cream flavors from Germany, Switzerland, France and Italy,” she says.

Signature flavors include Salted Caramel and Black Forest. Many people come for the pistachio ice cream, which contains real pistachios.

There’s a self-serve sundae topping bar with over two dozen toppings. Or choose a homemade waffle cone or bowl. 

With 24 flavors on the menu and varying seasonal flavors, there’s always a tempting variety. December’s seasonal flavors included White Christmas, Eggnog and Peppermint Stick. In October, Apple Moonshine, Apple Strudel, and German Chocolate were featured.

Moonshine? You read it right. Swiss Alps creates alcohol-infused ice cream and usually has two flavors to choose from. 

If your favorite ice cream flavor isn’t already in the pint freezer, just ask and they’ll pack a pint to take home.

A specialty at Sweet Alps is their coconut-based vegan non-dairy ice cream made in-house. Of several vegan flavors, strawberry is a best-seller. Vegan milkshakes are also available. 

In the bakery case, you’ll find in-house-baked Chocolate Chunk and Reese’s Peanut Butter cookies, homemade brownies and “brookies,” which are a combination brownie-cookie.

Another tasty creation is the hot glazed ice cream sandwich donut. Choose your ice cream and the scoop is placed inside a glazed bakery donut. The concoction is then placed on a donut iron and sealed. The result is a remarkable combination of warm donut and cold ice cream.

 Coffee beans from a local roastery provide steaming cups of regular coffee, Americano, espresso, and iced or hot lattes. Tea and hot chocolate are also served.

Indoor and outdoor seating is available at Sweet Alps, your homemade ice cream destination, conveniently close to The Villages
and Ocala.

    Sweet Alps Ice Cream sounds delicious! I’ll definitely swing by to try their unique flavors. Especially curious about the Butter Scotch Ice Cream with alcohol infusion. A real treat for the palate!
