Braum’s Perfect Pair Holiday Edition

block_11Our summer Perfect Pair contest brought thousands of ice cream flavor duos that were full of fun puns, pop culture references, and even inspiration.

It was so hard to choose that we decided to go back and grab a few of our more festive favorites to highlight this holiday season!

We’re excited to spread cheer with these clever mashups of Braum’s ice cream flavors. Whether you’re trekking through the woods to grandmother’s house for Thanksgiving or sitting fireside on New Year’s Eve, these festive concoctions will kindle your holiday spirit.

When you grab your next Braum’s double scoop cone, considered giving these combinations a try! The combos will have you dreaming visions of cozy autumnal feasts, sledding down snowy hillsides, and quite possibly dancing sugar plum fairies.

Congrats to our participants who contributed these tasty tidings.  Happy Holidays from Braum’s!

Top 10 Gluten-Free Ice Creams at Braum’s

Dietary restrictions can sometimes make restaurants and grocery stores difficult to navigate. But an allergy or sensitivity to gluten doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the frozen goodness Braum’s has to offer. We have dozens of gluten-free flavors.

Some people avoid gluten because they have celiac disease, which causes the immune system to react abnormally to gluten. Symptoms can range from nonexistent to severe, so those who suffer from the disease must be especially cautious about what they eat. Others may have sensitivity to gluten, which isn’t as severe as celiac disease but can still cause symptoms.

Gluten can be found in a host of foods, such as bread and pastas. It is in the ingredients of several of our ice creams. For example, our popular Cookies ‘n’ Cream flavor has cookie pieces, which contain gluten.

To help those with celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, and special diets, we have created a list of 10 of the most popular Braum’s flavors that are gluten-free. There are dozens more, so be sure to check the ingredients listed with our premium and light ice creams, regular and no sugar added frozen yogurts, and sherbets.

Best Birthday Ever: Three Recipes that Use Birthday Cake Ice Cream

Birthday Cake Ice Cream Recipes

Few things in life are sweeter than birthday cake and ice cream, but imagine combining both to create a concoction you’ll want to triple on your next waffle cone. You can have your cake and eat it (in ice cream form), too.

It’s little wonder why our famous Premium Birthday Cake ice cream is a fan favorite. The eye-catching blue ice cream is packed with amazing birthday cake flavor. White ribbons of marshmallow wave through the scoop and are complemented by pieces of classic pound cake.

Just a scoop can make any day feel like your birthday. Whether you’re blowing out candles or you simply want to treat yourself, these Birthday Cake ice cream concoctions will add an extra touch to your celebration.

Mini Birthday Cake Ice Creams Cakes

Sometimes less is more – and adorable. Next time you whip up an ice cream cake to please party guests, consider serving individual mini cakes. The personal cakes can last for several weeks in your freezer, making it a convenient, make-ahead option.

What You Need

How to Make It

  1. Remove the pint of Braum’s Birthday Cake ice cream from the fridge and let it sit out for 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. While the ice cream softens, place a sleeve’s worth of Gold Oreos into a plastic gallon freezer bag. Close the bag securely and make sure no air is trapped. With a rolling pin, gently crush the cookies into small, pea-sized crumbs.
  3. Take the softened ice cream and spoon it into the individual cups of a silicon muffin pan. Flatten the top of the ice cream in the cups with a small spatula. Before the ice cream softens too much, sprinkle the Oreo crumbs to create a cookie layer on top of the ice cream.
  4. Cover the filled muffin tins with foil or parchment paper and allow the pan to freeze overnight.
  5. When ready to serve, invert the silicone cups and wiggle out the ice cream cakes. Place on individual plates or bowls and allow guests to top their cake with hot fudge, whipped cream, nuts, or sprinkles.

Make It Your Own

  • Experiment with your favorite Braum’s ice cream flavors. Substitute with classics like chocolate and vanilla, seasonal flavors like Braum’s Egg Nog ice cream, or even sherbet.
  • You can play with the crumb layer, too! Try Oreos, brownies crumbs, or your favorite candy.

Birthday Cake Ice Cream Terrine

A terrine is a box-shaped dish that you slice to serve. A terrine can be used for savory foods to make a main dish, but — clearly — we think this food is a dish best served cold.

What You Need

How to Make It

  1. Start with your carton of Birthday Cake Ice Cream. Spoon about two-thirds of the carton into a bowl, and allow it to soften. (Put the carton with the rest of the ice cream back in the freezer. You’re going to want to eat it later, probably after your children have gone to bed.)
  2. Spoon about one-third of the vanilla out of the carton to soften, and put the rest of it back in the freezer to be enjoyed another day. Or later today. Whatever. We get it.
  3. Cut two sheets of plastic wrap, each about 18 inches long. Lay one sheet into the pan long-ways, and lay the other on top, short-ways across the pan. Let the extra plastic wrap rest over the sides. You should have excess plastic wrap on each of the four sides of the pan.
  4. Now, take about half of that softened Birthday Cake Ice Cream and spread it in the bottom of the loaf pan.
  5. Sprinkle in the Braum’s Pound Cake pieces and the sprinkles.
  6. Put the loaf pan in the freezer to set. It should be firm in about 15 to 20 minutes.
  7. Take the pan out and layer in the Vanilla Ice Cream. Sprinkle in more Pound Cake and sprinkles. Return it to the freezer to set, again for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  8. Take the pan out and layer in the rest of the Birthday Cake Ice Cream.
  9. Fold over the plastic wrap to bundle up the terrine. Put pan in the freezer to set for at least an hour.
  10. To serve, unmold the terrine from the loaf pan onto a platter. Slice it like bread and enjoy!

Birthday Cake Ice Cream Milkshakes

These milkshakes will bring everybody to your yard. Proceed with caution.

What You Need

  • 1 carton of Braum’s Premium Birthday Cake Ice Cream
  • ¼ to ½ cup of Braum’s milk of your choice (we recommend whole milk!)
  • Blender
  • 2 large glasses for serving
  • Whipped cream topping
  • Waffle cones crumbled into sprinkle sized pieces
  • Bendable straws (optional, but do it.)

How to Make It (Makes two servings)

  1. Scoop a pint’s worth of Braum’s Birthday Cake ice cream (about 4 or 5 large scoops) into a blender.
  2. Pour in milk and cover blender with lid.
  3. Blend the ice cream and milk on a medium setting. If mixture is too think, stop blender and add additional milk (be careful not add too much as the mixture might become runny.) Blend until ice cream is smooth.
  4. Pour the mixture into tall, chilled glasses. Top with whipped cream and waffle cone sprinkles and serve.

Make It Your Own

  • Substitute the recipe with your favorite flavors. Try Braum’s Premium Pumpkin ice cream for an autumnal twist!
  • Mix it up! Take your favorite ice cream toppings and blend them right into your milkshake. Sprinkles and hot fudge pair nicely with birthday cake!

Braum’s Named Made in Oklahoma Coalition’s August Restaurant of the Month

We are proud to be named the Made in Oklahoma Coalition’s August Restaurant of the Month. The MIO’s monthly spotlight features Oklahoma restaurants dedicated to providing quality, local goods. Throughout August, the organization featured facts about our commitment to providing Oklahoma products on its Facebook page.

From fresh dairy products and bakery goods to the quality beef used in our burgers, we are no stranger to providing hungry Oklahomans delicious, locally produced food.

“Freshness has always been important to Braum’s. Each Braum’s store receives a delivery every other day,” says Terry Holden, the marketing and advertising director for Braum’s.

The Braum Family Farm in Tuttle, Oklahoma, is home to the restaurant’s product creation. The Braum’s Processing Plant and Bakery are on the farm as well. It’s here where we create your favorite Braum’s treats fresh every day.

Our farm allows us to bring customers better-tasting goods by eliminating the need to transport vast amounts of ingredients across great distances. Our trucks leave from and return to the farm on the same day, delivering fresh products to each Braum’s store.

Being based in Oklahoma has more than a few benefits. Oklahoma’s centralized location allows for fresh daily deliveries to not only store locations in state but also to stores in Texas, Kansas, Missouri, and Arkansas.

While geographic location is an advantage, being an Oklahoma business and producer means much more. With its farm-friendly climate and driven, hardworking community of employees, Oklahoma easily allows for the production of quality products.

“Considerations such as climate, productive workforces, and good transportation systems are benefits that play an important role in our production locations,” Holden says.

Next time you bite into a Braum’s burger or pick up a pint of ice cream, remember it was made just down the road.

Learn more about the Braum’s farm and schedule a tour of the Braum’s Processing Plant and Bakery.

About MIO

The Made in Oklahoma Coalition aims to promote brand awareness and consumer loyalty for food and agricultural products local to Oklahoma. Founded in 2000, MIO brings attention to the economic benefits of supporting Oklahoma food manufacturers through the purchasing of their local products and produce.
