Churn: Beat the heat with the Kids

The ultimate spot to take kids this summer, and get out of the heat, is of course, an ice cream shop. There's no better place! We head over to Churn in Central Phoenix, the kid favorite ice cream shop with zero "phony stuff," and funny names for their sundaes like the Fat Elvis and the Kitchen Sink.  

We think everyone has a fond memory of their first taste of freshly churned ice cream. It was probably on the back porch, on a lazy hot summer day. And we're guessing it was pink sweet strawberry or real vanilla bean. Remember how darn good it tasted? At Churn, we sure haven't forgotten. We know that the tastiest and best quality ice creams are made with those same simple, fresh ingredients from years past. You won't discover anything you can't pronounce or scary chemical additives, preservatives or stabilizers in our confections. They're all natural and made on site with love. Churn. We love ice cream as much as you.
