I Scream For Ice Cream

Summer is here and that means it’s time to kick back and stay cool. What better way to beat the heat this summer than with my favorite summertime treat, ice cream? And since July is National Ice Cream Month, I figured I’d share my five favorite ways to enjoy ice cream.

Fresh Ice Cream Sandwiches – Picture this, two freshly baked warm cookies with a scoop of creamy ice cream sandwiched between them. Amazing. You gotta eat quick, but this is one treat that’s worth the mess!

Ice Cream Cake – There’s something about Ice cream shaped like a cake that I love. And when you add in bits of your favorite candy, it’s even better. Plus, ice cream cake is easy enough to make at home!

Ice Cream Curls – You’ll have to find an ice cream shop that specializes in ice cream curls for this one, but trust me, it’s worth the adventure. They spread ice cream over a cold slab and shape it into short thin curls. Not only is it tasty, it’s totally picture-worthy too!

Homemade Popsicles – Gone are the days of simple push-up popsicles. Nowadays unique flavored popsicles are everywhere. But don’t bother shelling out big bucks when you can just make your own. Experiment with fresh fruits, yogurt and even spices!

A La Mode – Apple pie, warm brownies and cake. These are all things that are made better by a scoop of ice cream. Now I usually like vanilla, but recently I’ve been experimenting with other flavors, and I haven’t been disappointed. So give some crazy combinations a try!

Eating ice cream is already enjoyable enough, but the next time you’re looking to try something new, give one of these methods a try. Bon Appetit!
