Lush Ice Creams & Sorbets

- 100% Pure, Natural Ingredients
- Organic Milk & Cane Sugar
- Zero Fake Food, Zero Nonsense

We make ice cream the old fashioned way - BY HAND, taking care of every step along the way! Everytime we need a new Cheesecake Ice Cream, we start off by making up a fresh batch of strawberry jam, and then bake three trays of biscuits*. The only colour in our ice creams come from the colours of natural fruit, nuts and chocolate. No nasties allowed whatsoever!
If you like pistachios, come and try our our showstopping Pistachio Ice Cream. After salting and roasting pistachio kernels, we grind them in a stone grinder for 24 hours in order to get the creamist, more delicious pistachio paste ever.

Try our "BETTER THAN Oreo" flavour - we make the biscuits ourselves, which means zero palm oil**. Natural, Ethical and sooo Good!

Come on up and taste some!

* All our baked wares (both those used as ingredients in our ice creams, as well as the ones on the menu in our two cafés, are made with organic besan flour. Not only is this naturally glutenfree, it is also stoneground in family-run flour mill in the neighbouring village of Coín.

** Mayan Monkey Mijas is a palm-oil free business
