Mother's Day weekend is upon us and while many of us won't get to see our moms in person this year due to COVID-19, we're sending love and virtual hugs to all of the caring, loving and selfless mothers out there, including Mammoth's co-founder, Susan! Read on to learn more about our favorite lady.
Born and bred a Texas gal, Susan, or as her friends call her “Sue,” was born in Amarillo and moved to Austin when she was 10 years old.
Coming from a family that owned the first natural health food store in her town, she grew up in a home that focused on healthy living and homeopathic medicine.
She went on to attend the University of Texas in Austin, and on a rare Austin snow day, she met her now-husband, Tim. After college, Sue focused on raising their beautiful family of four children.
When her husband Tim was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, she dramatically changed their family’s lifestyle to focus on a high-fat, low-carb, low-sugar diet. She became their household’s master keto chef, but there was one thing that she couldn’t find a recipe for — ice cream.
In June 2017, she started making her own high-fat, low-sugar frozen custard, and it didn’t take long for her ice cream to gain popularity with family and friends, and so Mammoth Creameries was born.
