Workout Wednesday~Mikey Likes It Ice Cream
Ok, it’s not your typical Workout Wednesday fitness post but this week I’m gonna let you live.
With all that work you put in, you also need to treat yourself. It’s all about balance. The weather is heatin’ up and it’s time to get your scoop or two of ice cream. Let me introduce you to Mikey, the founder and CEO of “Mikey Likes It Ice Cream”.
Mikey Likes It Ice Cream is not just an Ice Cream shop but a “LifeStyle.” dishing up organic, creative flavors with pop-culture influences.
If you’re an Ice cream lover and haven’t been to Mikey’s, I suggest you put it on your NYC bucket list and get yourself to one of his shops. Everything is homemade with all recipes created by Mikey himself.
Mikey is known in NYC as the HipHop ice cream guy and often times you’ll spot a celebrity in his shop. Even Jay and B hire Mikey for their private parties! You can even catch him on CBS sports during football season.

Due to a recent health scare Mikey had to change his diet. He wanted to eat healthier so he came up with a few flavors of “Vegan Ice Cream”.

.Growing up on the LES, Mikey decided that’s where his flagship store was going to be ~ 199 Avenue A , NY NY 10009. He’s been open for 5 years and recently opened his second location in Harlem ~ 2500 Frederick Douglas Blvd , NY NY 10030.
Before Mikey became the King of Hiphop Ice Cream, Mikey was a sneaker head. Back in the day, he was part owner of the Famous sneaker store, “SoleFood”. After launching Mikey Likes it Ice Cream, Ewing approached Mikey for a chance to have his own signature sneakers. Don’t get it twisted Mikey knows a little about “Fashion” too. It’s A Lifestyle remember that!
