A Taste of Forever Summer

Now here’s a collaboration that will literally make you feel good all over.

When our friends at ice-cream subscription service Pint Society asked if we’d like to collaborate on a bespoke flavour of the month, we were bursting with ideas and excitement.

Sure, we love blending our oils in the aromatherapy studio but we also live to eat and never say no to well-made ice-cream.

Through sketches and ahem, research and development shall we say, we went back and forth on flavours. A lavender or chamomile ice-cream seemed a little too literal, and we wanted a light, super refreshing flavour considering the weather in Singapore lately.

For years, I had been asking Tash of Pint Society to create a pavolva ice-cream. As any self-respecting Aussie will tell you, pavlova is all about summer and family time. It’s the quintessential dessert that’s decorated with fresh seasonal fruit like mangoes, strawberries, blueberries… It’s never truly complete though, until topped with passionfruit pulp.

Passionfruit. I adore the stuff. I love its tangy sweetness. As a child, my mum used to halve them and I’d sprinkle a touch of sugar on top. It was a real treat that Pint Society beautifully recreated here. Swirls of super amazing passionfruit juice turned into gelato paired with real vanilla ice-cream – I love whenever I see the beans when I eat. And then crowned with soft meringue kisses. Every bite is a spoonful of happy childhood memories by Australia’s Sunshine Coast. Et voila, FOREVER SUMMER.

And if you’re feeling guilty about eating ice-cream, tell yourself that passionfruit is rich in antioxidants and vitamin C. Orders for this special flavour close April 21, and FOREVER SUMMER will be delivered to your door between April 26 & 28. Don’t wait, it will completely make your month!
