“We had to expand from our little ice cream shop in the back to this, so it’s amazing how we’re growing,” Al says.
Right now, the father and son duo are working to move into a bigger facility across town to help meet the demand for their Mt. Everetts Frozen Creations products.
“They were questioning us. They said, ‘I don’t think you’re going to get the oil in the Italian ice in the water. You won’t do it in a non-dairy product,’” Al recalls.
CBD connoisseurs say there has to be some sort of fat in the product for the CBD to hold onto.
When the Everetts family pitched the idea of using Italian ice, there was a bit of skepticism among cannabis companies.
Troy saw products containing cannabidiol (CBD), an active ingredient in cannabis derived from hemp plants. It’s used to help treat anxiety, chronic pain and neurological disorders like epilepsy. As an oil from the cannabis plant, it usually only contains trace amounts of THC, but not nearly enough to get you high. So why not put CBD in their homemade Italian ice? Well, easier said than done. CBD oil isn’t water soluble.
“We’re excited about it,” Al says. “The response has been unbelievable.”

I had 3 teeth extracted at one time. I was told by the dental surgeon that I would have swelling and bruising to my face. I ate a cup of the high protein PLUS ice cream before having the procedure and it was the only thing I could or wanted to eat for the next three days. Each return visit to the dentist, I was asked what I was doing because I had no swelling or bruising. I told the dentist it was just the ice cream. That was it!
My 81-year-old mother lives in an independent living facility. She became wheelchair bound during the Covid-19 pandemic. During that time, she became upset, depressed and was not eating. She was losing weight rapidly. I brought her the high protein PLUS ice cream. She loved it! She thinks it is delicious. Because she does not enjoy food, but enjoys the ice cream, we have been able to supplement her meals with the ice cream to get her protein and nutrients. The ice cream has helped her gain weight and helped her eat again.
