Milk House Ice Cream | Okinawa Hai!


Milk House Ice Cream | Okinawa Hai!

What is the best part about the Milk House Ice Cream Stand? The milk flavored ice cream! My first thought was that “milk” flavored ice cream seemed too simple to be anything special, but let me tell you: the taste was spectacular. It was a perfect combination of creamy, milky and sweet that reminded me that sometimes it is the simple things in life that hold the best surprises. My husband even said it brought back memories of homemade ice cream from his childhood.

The first thing that caught my attention about Milk House were the letters “EM” proudly displayed on the large sign posted on the building and the flags waving nearby. I was excited because I knew this was ice cream made from EM brand milk. EM stands for effective microorganisms, which are added to the soil that produce is grown in, and to the water and feed of animals. This creates quality produce and animal products with a higher nutrition value. I already use EM milk in my home, and couldn’t wait to try the ice cream!

Milk house carries other flavors, many of which we sampled since we couldn’t read the kanji. I was able to have the menu translated, which I will include below. A single scoop is 200 yen and a double is 300 yen in a cup or cone. Besides the milk flavor, I also recommend banana chocolate. Once you go you probably won’t be able to resist going back, so don’t forget to grab a stamp card for a free ice cream when full!

  1. We went here today and it was definitely worth the drive. The ice cream was different from any ice cream I’ve ever had, definitely reminding me of homemade ice cream. I had to try the milk flavor and my husband was going to have passion fruit but she didn’t have it so he took mango instead. And we only got one scoop each but definitely should have taken two, it was so good! Just wanted to add, if anyone is looking for this place, there are pink flags along the side of the road near the entrance. That is how we ended up finding it. It’s a little hidden because the front of the stand is actually facing away from the road.
