National Ice Cream Day


Berry yogurt popsicles via Gina's Recipes

Did you know yesterday was national ice cream day?  Let’s keep the party going all month long. Here are the recipes I’m dying to try:

Berry yogurt popsicles– your breakfast parfait, frozen. Gorgeous.

“Hot Date” ice cream sundae– banana ice cream, banana bread and caramel date sauce.  Bananas!

Dark chocolate bombe shell– for that perfect DQ-like shell.  The secret is…coconut oil!

Strawberry frozen yogurt– For when you need something a little lighter.

Best Chocolate Ice Cream– this recipe takes 5 days to make.  5 days!  Kind of like those world-famous best-ever chocolate chip cookies.  Delayed gratification at its sweetest.

Plum sorbet– what could be more beautiful than a smooth, plum-colored ice?

How will you indulge?

    I guess you could say we’ve been celebrating for weeks! Sunday night is always dessert night here, but we’ve decided to try a different ice cream each week for the summer. First we did Maple Bacon Crunch, then Butterscotch (with 15 year old scotch…happiest kids in the neighborhood), then cinnamon. So far butterscotch is the winner. Next week we’ll try a lime sorbet, unless the panel changes its mind…

    The butterscotch and cinnamon both came from The Perfect Scoop cookbook, and the Maple Bacon Crunch was from Food Network Magazine. We’ll chill bowls for you!
