The Scoop on High Hopes Ice Cream

High Hopes Ice Cream is something of a dream come true for Jamie Howard. After she fell in love with making the sweet treat while working at Betty Rae’s, Howard spent years trying to get her own concept off the ground, even buying up used equipment and storing it in her house. Now her dream is finally a reality at High Hopes, the Troost Avenue shop she opened late this summer. Howard crafts her flavors with locally sourced ingredients and plans to change them out each month, but early favorites include almond butter and Missouri peach and strawberry birthday cake, made with cream-cheese frosting and City Barrel’s Strawberry Shortcake Bar beer. High Hopes also has dairy-free options (and free Lactaid) available for lactose-intolerant customers.
