A trip to The Creamery for an ice cream or a waffle is a special treat for many Cape Town families. During the Winter months, The Creamery is adding a few new items to their menu. Introducing a range of hot drinks inspired by their ice cream flavours, and a piping hot Malva pudding.
As well as serving Rosetta Roastery espresso coffee and loose leaf natural teas, the drinks menu will include a Matcha Latte, Malted Hot Chocolate and a Caramel Rooibos Latte.
Using Japanese matcha green tea powder, its the same tea powder that gives their green tea ice cream a rich, deep flavour. For the Malted Hot Chocolate, malt powder is added to the original, all natural hot chocolate recipe, giving this drink a hint of Milo. It pairs beautifully with a crisp waffle and ice cream, bringing out the toastiness of the waffle batter.
The Caramel Rooibos brings together the lighter, fruity notes of rooibos tea (from Little Boy’s Farm, Citrusdal) with the rich, sweet notes of The Creamery’s hand made caramel sauce. It’s a unique flavour combination, that is thoroughly comforting. Give it a taste before adding any sugar – we found it be sweet and warming and a great alternative if you’re not a big ice cream fan.
Malva Pudding is one of our favourite ways to eat ice cream! The sticky, sponge texture has a caramelised flavour that every South African will recognise. Baked by The Creamery chefs at their production kitchen in Salt River, the malvas are finished off to order, served steaming hot with a scoop of your favourite ice cream.
Using all natural ingredients, according to The Creamery’s philosophy of sourcing locally from small farmers, you can indulge in these treats knowing that you supporting the hardworking farmers of the Western Cape. The Winter items are available for a limited time only, at The Creamery Cafe Newlands, Mouille Point and Palmyra Junction.
