After having won Best Ice Cream in Ann Arbor two years in a row, Blank Slate Creamery needs little introduction. The family-owned shop uses only fresh ingredients from local vendors and farms to craft its superb ice cream, an effort which results in mind-blowing flavor and creaminess. With creative flavors to choose from like Lavender Lemon Honey and Blueberry Pancake, in addition to your favorite classics, it’s no wonder the line at Blank Slate often stretches out the door. A selection of vegan and gluten-free flavors ranging from Cookies and Cream to Matcha are also available. Although the outstanding ice cream itself is enough to satisfy the most adept ice cream aficionados, Blank Slate goes the extra mile by making its own waffle cones on-site daily. There’s nothing like walking through the door and being surrounded by the heavenly smell of waffle cones being made. As a freshman coming to campus for the first time, Blank Slate made Michigan feel just like home. With unparalleled taste, welcoming employees, and an overall wonderful atmosphere, Blank Slate is definitively the go-to place for ice cream.
