Cedar Crest Ice Cream, Cedarburg, Wis., said it introduced a line of churned ice cream. The 48-ounce containers recently hit store freezers with flavors that include Caramel Swirl, Strawberry, Mint ‘N Fudge and Vanilla.

According to Cedar Crest, the new churned line was inspired in part by requests from its customers for a lower-fat and lower-calorie take on its classic ice cream. Churned (more commonly known as slow-churned) ice cream is less dense and lower in fat and calories because of the air that’s in it, but it still retains its creamy texture and flavor.  

The new churned line is an extension of the company’s current lines of premium ice cream, frozen custard, sherbet and gelato products. Cedar Crest said it chose the line’s four flavors based on some of its most popular ice cream flavors. Cedar Crest churned ice cream is available at retail stores throughout Wisconsin, Northern Illinois, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.
