I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream…especially when it’s from one of Saskatchewan’s best ice cream shoppes. With all of the sunshine that this prairie province gets, cooling off with a sweet treat is one of the best – and most delicious – ways to beat the heat this summer. With unique flavours and locally sourced ingredients, taste the difference that Saskatchewan makes. 

Homestead Ice Cream 

For more than 40 years, Homestead Ice Cream has been a beloved Saskatoon institution. Just south of the South Saskatchewan River, this charming little shop prides itself on making everything in house, including all of their delicious ice cream, yogurt, sundaes and novelty items. If you’re in the mood for something truly decadent, the Triple Dip Cheesecake may satisfy your craving, while if you’re looking for something a bit lighter, enjoy a fruity scoop of frozen yogurt.

Beppi’s Gelato

Offering an Italian experience in the heart of the Canadian Prairies, Beppi’s Gelato brings an authentic taste of Italy to all of its patrons.
