Liquid Nitrogen Crafted Ice Cream
In 2018, John Smotryski and Amanda Velazquez packed up their lives on mainland Florida and set out for new beginnings in Key West, a tropical island in the Straits of Florida. Betting on himself and his ability to start a business, John cashed in his retirement savings in the pursuit of a new career. The couple started Wicked Lick with the intention of not only starting a new, exciting chapter in a tropical paradise, but also bringing the very best tasting ice cream to the community. John and Amanda set out to make it even more thrilling by using liquid nitrogen to freeze the cream.
“Probably the frehest ice cream you’ll ever have. Sometimes, if the batch is low, they’ll make a new batch right in front of you. Great dessert destination!”
Brian Rice – happy customer
“Perfect ice-cream! Just perfect! That place provides samples, you can try everything first but believe me you will return here more than 1 time 😉 We went to the shop every day of our vacation. Highly recommend you to try pistachio, wiled cherry and peanut butter👌🏻“

Nitrogen Makes up 78% of the air we breathe
Nitrogen is the most abundant gas in our atmosphere, making up 78% of the air we breathe. It is non-toxic, non-flammable, and there is no taste or smell. In its liquid state, it is minus 321 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s this extremely cold property that allows anything that comes in contact with it to freeze immediately.
Because of these special properties, chefs have been getting creative with liquid nitrogen in food preparation for more than twenty years. With the onset of craft beer, cold pressed coffee and now ice cream, Liquid Nitrogen has gained even more popularity.
Our ice cream is crafted with all natural cream, pure cane sugar and fresh ingredients.
We make everything from scratch in small batches, freezing it immediately with liquid nitrogen. This process makes the ice cream very smooth and creamy, without the need for stabilizers or any other artificial ingredients. Our team members make ice cream fresh every day – no need to store it in the freezer for months at a time. Everything that goes into our ice cream is essential, so every element shines. We only use fresh ingredients like real dairy, cane sugar and all natural ingredients. This creates vibrant flavors accompanied by a rich, creamy consistency. First-time customers are immediately able to taste the difference. The quality, along with unique flavors and serving options, makes our product stand out.
“Personally tried the cold brew Cuban coffee ice cream and the strawberry ice cream and it was AMAZING.”
