When the partners behind MilkMade http://milkmadeicecream.com/ --a new 
ice cream delivery service--set out to make ice cream using local 
ingredients, they were thinking about milk and eggs sourced from the Union 
Square Greenmarket.

But soon it became apparent that they could take the notion further. When 
co-founder Diana Hardeman was dreaming up a 'Coffee and Donuts' flavor,

Uganda Bugisu coffee and combined it with Doughnut Plant

This mash-up of morning flavors beget more creative combinations. 
Tuthilltown Spirits'

bourbon spiced up a frozen hot-toddy flavor, and Sugar Sweet Sunshine
http://www.sugarsweetsunshine.com/ bakery supplied cupcakes for 
red-velvet ice cream. This month, subscribers can opt for 'Twist & Stout,' 
made with Sixpoint http://www.sixpointcraftales.com/ brewery's Otis 
Oatmeal Stout.

Hardeman and her business partner, Michelle Truong, have met more small 
purveyors at the Greenpoint Food Market
http://greenpointfoodmarket.wordpress.com/ , where they've been selling 
their ice cream. At the moment, they're dreaming up a way to use Pumpkin & 
Honey Bunny

soda and are set to link up with Sigmund Pretzelshop

. 'We look at it as an opportunity to collaborate,' Hardeman says. 'We 
focus on companies that we think are doing something great.'
