Astronaut Ice Cream was originally developed using a system by NASA to reduce weight of food needed for space travel. Essentially, blasting food out of earth’s atmosphere requires a lot of fuel. By removing the moisture out of food, you are left with the essential ingredients. What ends up when you freeze-dry ice cream? A delightful and tasty food that is perfect for parties and special events. Our favorite is for those long camping trips when you can’t get to a freezer!
