Beer and Ice Cream are some of our favorite cheat items to consume. We’ve discovered a pretty unique recipe that allows you to combine them both. It’s called a Shandy or a Shandygaff. These are popular in EU and are starting to make its way to America. Be one of the first ones to try and impress your friends!


  • 1-2 lemons, preferably organic or unsprayed (for zest and juice)
  • 1 11-12 ounce bottle (1 ½ cups) Belgian (or Belgian style) Wit Beer (I used Hoegaarden)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup sugar


  1. In a 2 quart bowl—because the beer will foam up when mixed—zest enough of one lemon to measure 1/4 teaspoon. Squeeze lemons to make 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons juice and add the juice to the bowl with the zest.
  2. Add the beer, half and half, and sugar. Stir and let set for a few minutes to dissolve the sugar. Stir again and freeze according to the instructions with your ice cream machine.
