- "It's so tasty, I even managed to sell a batch of the stuff to a scientific expedition party on Vandor. (And when it comes to cold, these guys are the experts.)"
- ―Strono Tuggs, The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook
Nectrose Freeze was a type of simple, no-churn ice cream created by the chef Strono Tuggs. The white dish could be served with a Golden Lichen Tuile and nectrose crystals as topping, and it was edible by Artiodacs and humans. In 3 ABY, the human Willrow Hood was planning to travel to the planet Batuu for a job where he intended to eat some Nectrose Freeze, despite him expecting his waistline to protest to such a food.
Tuggs once sold a batch of the ice cream to a research team on the planet Vandor. In 34 ABY, Tuggs included a recipe for Nectrose Freeze in his The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook, where he called the dish tasty. He also included the story of the research team on Vandor in the book.
Behind the scenes
Nectrose Freeze was introduced in the 2019 recipe book Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook, which was authored by Chelsea Monroe-Cassel and Marc Sumerak. The out-of-universe recipe for the dish calls for sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, olive oil, whipping cream, and Golden Lichen Tuile and nectrose crystals, both of which received their own recipes in the book.

Notes and references
- Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook
- "Due on Batuu"—From a Certain Point of View: The Empire Strikes Back
- "Due on Batuu" takes place concurrently with Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 3 ABY.
- Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook establishes that the in-universe book was published at the same time as when the First Order was searching for the Resistance base on Batuu. As that search occurs in Galaxy's Edge: Black Spire, which is set in 34 ABY according to the reasoning here, the cookbook must have been published in 34 ABY.
