Healthier Choices in Frozen Desserts


Turkey Hill Dairy is announcing several new additions to its line of frozen desserts.

New Duetto Flavors

Duetto is a gelati-inspired combination of soft serve ice cream and fruit-flavored Venice Premium Ice. New Duetto flavors include Root Beer Float and Limited Edition Chocolate Coconut. The new flavors join favorites Cherry, Lemon, Raspberry and Mango.

‘Duetto wasn’t only a new recipe for us, but a whole new product category for grocery store freezers,’ said Turkey Hill President Quintin Frey. ‘We knew without a doubt that our Venice Premium Ice was delicious and mixing it with our soft-serve ice cream was an obvious choice for ice cream lovers. But, Venice Premium Ice on its own has received a great response from a whole new category of frozen dessert lovers out there.’

Venice Premium Ice

Fruit-flavored ice in Raspberry, Mango, Lemon & Cherry, and Pomegranate Blueberry with Acai flavors. The Venice Premium Ice offers a non-dairy alternative for consumers with stricter dietary concerns and those who are just looking for a new indulgence.

Turkey Hill’s Marketing Manager Melissa Mattilio said, ‘Based on feedback from Duetto lovers and consumers seeking healthier, fat-free options, a line of Venice Premium Ice flavors was an obvious next step.’

Frozen Yogurt Smoothie

The updated Frozen Yogurt Smoothies are now fortified with Vitamin D. Flavors include Green Tea Mango, Orange Cream Swirl and Raspberry Lemonade, plus the addition of a new flavor: Pomegranate Blueberry & Cream with Açai.

‘We’ve talked to health-minded customers and we found that while they want to make healthier dessert choices, they still want to feel like they’re indulging and treating themselves to something refreshing,’ said Mattilio. ‘They weren’t willing to sacrifice taste for health, and we took that into consideration with these new flavors.’

Light Recipe Flavors

The new Light Recipe flavors, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Banana Split, were specifically developed to meet the growing demand for “better-for-you” options. The new flavors contain at least 18% fewer calories and 50% less fat than Turkey Hill premium ice cream.

‘When we created this line two years ago, we knew that to meet growing demand for a healthier ice cream, we had to create a recipe that lived up to consumers’ high expectations for our ice creams,’ said Turkey Hill Dairy President Quintin Frey. ‘The Light Recipe line’s growing success proves we’ve accomplished this task.’

The Light Recipe flavors include Light Recipe Moose Tracks®, Light Recipe Peanut Butter Mania, Light Recipe Strawberry Cheesecake, Light Recipe Extreme Cookies ‘n Cream, and other favorites.

Turkey Hill also produces a selection of frozen yogurts, frozen yogurt smoothies and no sugar added recipe ice creams. It is the nation’s fourth largest selling ice cream brand.
