Lulus Nitrogen Ice Cream was featured on the Cooking Channel’s Seaside Snacks and Shacks. We showed host, Sabin Lomac, how we make our delicious Key Lime Pie Milkshakes and our famous Guava Goat Cheese Ice Cream with Sautéed Graham Crumble topping.
We had a blast hosting Damon Dominique and Jo Franco, Aaron Burriss, Chachi Gonzales, Haley Pham, Hayes Grier and our longtime friend, Zoe Kelly as they created their own Miami-inspired ice cream flavors before suiting up as sugar cones and racing through an ice cream obstacle course. Two scoops please!
On Sunday June 23, 2019 we had a blast celebrating Lulu’s 4th Anniversary!
We had sweet collaboration treats with other local businesses, Veza Sur Brewery and Santo Dulce Churros. We enjoyed live screen printing of limited-edition totes and shirts designed by Miami’s own Brian Butler of UpperHand Art. We played with and found homes for puppies from Jamie’s Rescue. We enjoyed personalized, type-written, and improvised poems from The Biscayne Poet. Most importantly, we celebrated our community over tons of hand-crafted, live-frozen Lulu’s Ice Cream!
Thank you for joining us. We hope to celebrate many more with you.

GrubHub launches a national campaign, RestaurantHER, featuring our founder, Luisa Santos.
A UNIQUE CHALLENGE
Women represent only 19% of chefs, and 7% of head chefs, across the culinary world. Beyond that, women chefs earn 28% less in base pay than their male counterparts.
Grubhub recognized these issues and saw the need for serious change. So it started RestaurantHER to champion and support restaurants, and raise awareness about inequality in the restaurant industry and help change things for the better.Read More›
Served in a cone, a cup, a bowl, on a stick, or in your bare hand – there’s no wrong way to serve ice cream. After a hot day playing on a Florida beach, you won’t really care how you get your fix, just that you do. And when you’re screaming for your ice cream, you shouldn’t have to settle for a sub-par product. That’s where we come in.Read More›
January 20 is National Cheese Lover’s Day, a time to unite and pay homage to fromage. Like any holiday, it should be spent in a gluttonous tizzy, noshing away on mountains of cheese.
Miami restaurants have embraced our love of cheese by using it in everything from classic warm sandwiches to ice cream. Here are the five cheesiest dishes in the Magic City.Read More›
At Lulu’s Nitrogen Ice Cream, the ice cream is made from scratch and frozen fresh. The liquid nitrogen is set at -321-degrees to freeze the ice cream, which leads to a much smoother finish.Read More›

Like many other businesses, Lulu’s Nitrogen Ice Cream was born in a college dorm. The big difference in owner Luisa Santos’ case is there was a tank of liquid nitrogen in her Georgetown University dorm that night. The Colombia-born, Miami-raised student was determined to make her own ice cream using liquid nitrogen after being captivated by seeing the technique demonstrated. By the end of the evening, she and her roommates were quite pleased with the results.
That was late 2013, and since then, Santos has been offering her frozen treats at farmers’ markets and catering gigs. However, this spring, the 24-year-old will open her first brick-and-mortar location on Biscayne Boulevard at NE 20th Street.
