CrEATe Introduces Organic Shaved Ice For Summer 2016 #BeUtahful

Are you from Utah, know someone in Utah, or plan on visiting Utah in the near future? Then listen up, there's this great little dessert place in Sandy, UT, below Alta Ski Resort, called CrEATe (get it, you Create your own dessert and then you EAT it!). It is based on a simple concept--choose your basic dessert and then design it with toppings, glazes and fillings of your choice. Only your imagination can limit you! The even greater part about this one-of-a-kind establishment is that owner, Ladonnia Jones has made sure that the ingredients are gluten free, additive-free, freshly made, and as wholesome as a sweet treat can be! It takes out some of the guilt one might typically feel when indulging a very unruly and hard to manage sugar addiction. I know I felt totally OK about eating these desserts!!!! When I eat the wonderful gelato, I know it is made with organic sugar, whole food ingredients and is gluten-free! But enough about me--
Disclosure: This review was not compensated. I did, however, receive samples of some products to facilitate the review!

Dessert Connoisseurs everywhere are raving about CrEATe because of the sheer variety and quality of their desserts and ingredients! Open less than 6 months, they already have an average 5-Star Rating on Yelp with 46 reviews! One great description I read is that it is a "Disneyland of Sweetness", which it truly is! As I toured the facility, I came upon this quote in the prep area, "Everything we do is infused with the energy with which we do it." You can definitely see that pure energy devoted to everything that is done at CrEATe! From the thoughtfully designed decor and cozy corners to the deliciousness that comes on a plate, bowl, or in a cup.

This month they are rolling out another great dessert option, just in time for summer---organic shaved ice! It is different than ordinary shaved ice because it is organic, gluten-free and vegan. There are no artificial flavors or colors in it and you can definitely taste the difference! A suggestion to try is a strawberry peppermint shaved ice. It is so refreshing and delicious! Or how about the root beer shaved ice with a dollop of vanilla gelato! It tastes exactly like a root beer float! Again, more chances to be creative and experiment until you CrEATe your own taste masterpiece! Hope to see you there! Come with a sweet tooth!

Gelato At CrEATe in Sandy #Utah

CrEATe is the most amazing dessert stop I've been to in a very long time! Located off Quarry Bend Drive across from Walmart Super Center in Sandy, this is a non-franchise, family-owned shop, where the owners take great pride in everything from the ingredients to the atmosphere! It is a design-your-own dessert bar where you choose from their delicious basic desserts and then add one or some of their many glazes, toppings or fillings. Their basic desserts include but are not limited to: donuts, cronuts, crepes, gelato, and cookies!

Decor: The decor is definitely a treat! Cozy little corners with plenty of cushions allow one to admire the steam punk vibe of the establishment. 

 Gelato: If you've never tasted fresh, homemade, whole ingredient gelato, you haven't lived! Made fresh and on-site, I would wager to say there isn't any better gelato in the area. I know I haven't tasted anything this good! The gelato is heavenly and add-ins are included in the very reasonable price. There are easily 12 - 16 freshly made flavors at any time. Fresh Mango, Pistachio, Carmel, Chocolate, Berry, etc. These are heavenly tasting! And they are all gluten-free, which to me, is an added bonus! Made with milk instead of cream, gelato is less fattening than ice-cream. Again let me emphasize, the ingredients are whole and non-artificial. Have you ever tasted pistachio gelato with real pistachio? It's to die for!
Drinking Chocolate: There is hot chocolate and then there is drinking chocolate. They have a chocolate drink made with real Belgium chocolate and you just can't call it hot chocolate because of the richness and goodness of the drink! I fell in love with it!
Pastries: Choose from freshly made donuts, cronuts, cookies, crepes, waffle cones, and more. They are delicious and the things you can create are just limited by your own imagination! They also sell their donuts and pastries by the dozen for office parties and other occasions.
If you are unsure of what exactly to create, the staff is very helpful and friendly and will help you make something just right for you! Whether you're out for a fun evening, want a quiet nook to work and have a snack, or want to taste some amazing desserts for a very reasonable price, try CrEATe.
