This sweet potato dessert is one of the newest ice cream varieties from Jeni's that puts an inventive spin on seasonal flavors. As its name suggests, the 'Sweet Potato Eclair' ice cream is made with a base of grass-grazed milk and locally sourced roasted sweet potatoes, which is enhanced with warming spices like cinnamon, white chocolate pieces and vanilla pastry flakes.

Jeni's notes that it took inspiration from European eclairs for this flavor and recommends serving this unique ice cream with a scoop of its Salty Caramel and Darkest Chocolate varieties to round out all of the included flavors.

As of late, consumers have become intrigued by savory ice cream flavors, particularly those sourced from root vegetables, tomatoes, beets and even carrots.
