The days have been getting noticeably warmer lately…as in it feels like July and it’s only May kind of warmer. And just about every day around 2:30 in the afternoon I start craving ice cream. Ugh. I then have to play referee between Good, Healthy, Angelic Sarah and Dessert Loving, Devil Sarah (umm, yeah that’s what it feels like!). Thankfully, most days I am able to rationalize myself out of NOT eating Andy’s Frozen Custard for dinner. And can I just say that is quite the feat when they are less than half a mile from your house?! Don’t think I haven’t thought “hey, I’ll just walk there and that totally justifies eating it!” Because I have. Oh, I have.
So ice cream remains a treat, like it should. And because I’ve got ice cream on the brain, I looked up some fun ice cream recipes online and wanted to share with you all. Tell me these don’t get you drooling?!?
First, Key Lime Pie Ice Cream from yours truly. I loooooove this stuff. It totally transports me to Florida and white sandy beaches. Ahhhhhh.
While not quite ice cream per se, an ice box cake is a frozen treat that I have been wanting to try FOREVER. And this recipe for a No-Bake Strawberry Icebox Cake has inspired me to finally do it! It’s just so pretty.
Chocolate Covered Brownie Ice Cream Sandwich. Want. Now.
Mint and chocolate are one of my weaknesses which makes this Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cake oh so very tempting to me. I think if I try it, I’ll use a boxed Devil’s Food Cake mix, just to save some precious time.
And last, but certainly not least, Almond Milk Ice Cream. Jeremy and I have cut dairy from our everyday diet and I have been dying to try a recipe for almond milk ice cream. This one looks good and I think I’ll try making it in my ice cream machine after mixing all the ingredients together and letting them chill. I’ll definitely post my results on here!
