Ice Cream Union

Has anyone ever just had one scoop of ice cream? With something so delicious we feel it could be virtually impossible and who would torture themselves with just ONE SCOOP? Ice cream as amazing as it is, is also the noted hot commodity of the summer. When the air thickens and the temperatures rise we all scream ICE CREAM.  However, with so many types of ice cream it’s hard to just choose one. 

 

You may be wondering about the types of ice cream and which to try this summer. Initially, there was always just the standard scoop of vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry known as soft serve however ice cream has taken on more personality through the years. For a quick tutorial on the most common types visit the following link: Ice Cream Types

 

While you’re likely to find all these types and more at your local grocery store, there’s magic in making your own. You can DIY ice cream with just a few simple ingredients and plastic zip-up bags! Check out this recipe from Delish that walks through how to make at-home ice cream in minutes. If you’re dairy-free, you can replace dairy creamer with a vegan substitute. Once you’ve made your ice cream, dress it up with toppings of your choice! Try salted caramel sauce for a decadent pair to plain vanilla, or add a pop of color with edible flowers.

 

Ice cream prep may not be for all of us. So to those who would rather purchase than create, here a few options to try this summer to satisfy your ice cream craving. For classic flavors, you can head to Baskin Robbins or Cold Stone Creamery. If you’re looking for something a little different you can head to FroZone Gelato for a creamy Italian dessert or Sweet Mex for some frescas cream and savory Spanish flavorings. 

 

Stay cool this summer by enjoying a sweet treat of your liking. Be sure to grab a cup, bowl, or scoop of chilled sweet delight this July in honor of National Ice Cream Month.
