Lubbock has been growing like crazy and Blue Oasis is another great place to add to the list. They serve up homemade Italian ice and ice cream. As the days get longer and summer approaches, we love going over to grab a dessert later in the evening. The inside space is huge! Usually, you walk into a place like Baskin Robbins and it the size of some walk-in closets. Blue Oasis is very spacious with tables, couches, love seats, and even a couple of TVs. It is really a great hang out spot and can accommodate large groups. This place is unique because of what they offer, but also how you order: 1. Grab a marker 2. Pick your flavors (three or five) 3. Write those flavors on the cup (in whatever order you prefer) 4. Bring it to the Ice Creamistas (Barista-Creamista, you get the gist). They also have fountain soft drinks!
Good luck on deciding on the flavors. You have many to choose from: coconut crème, cotton candy, espresso, s’mores, cherry, nutty fudge, apple pie, red velvet with cream cheese, cake batter, and a lot more. Be on the look out for seasonal flavors too. Luckily, we were able to try a few before making my final decision. We tried the vanilla bean, mint chocolate chip, and cookies n’ cream. It tasted as good as it sounds. Here is a little extra information from the owner:
“Blue Oasis is a frozen dessert eatery featuring both Italian ice and ice cream. Italian ice is new to Lubbock and so deserves a little bit of an explanation. Italian ice, also known as water ice, is a sweetened frozen dessert made with fruit or other flavoring concentrates. Italian ice is not shaved ice, but rather is made by the same process by which ice cream is made. Both ice cream and Italian ice are made by freezing the ingredients while mixing them.”
