Video: Cheesecake Ice Cream, Mangonada, and other specialty flavors for National Ice Cream Day


Family-owned La Michoacana Compi offers homemade ice cream in a variety of flavors unique to Lansing

LANSING, Ill. (July 14, 2023) – If you’re ready to expand beyond vanilla, chocolate, and mint chocolate chip — three popular flavors in the 45+ age group — Lansing’s La Michoacana Compi can introduce you to a whole new level of deliciousness. Owners Rosa and Ruben Gonzalez make the ice cream onsite with natural ingredients like real milk, real cream, and real fruit. Their daughter Bri met Josh and Melanie at the shop (19283 Burnham Avenue, Lansing) to help them begin an early celebration of National Ice Cream Day, which falls on July 16 this year:
