We received an ice cream maker as a wedding present last year and I have to say, there is simply nothing more fun (and decadently delicious) than making ice cream at home. It’s a little discouraging to discover just how bad ice cream is for you – that much heavy cream clearly isn’t healthy – but who cares. I will go to five kettle bell boot camp classes a week if that means being able to enjoy more creamy goodness.
On my list for this summer is to try my hand at homemade ice cream sandwiches. I’ll need a little patience and a lot of time, but I was immediately inspired by these lovelies below (Lemon Almond Coconut Ice Cream Sandwiches courtesy of the beautiful Sacramento Street blog). Maybe I can recruit Mike’s sister Kelly to help me, as she has witnessed my inability to follow a recipe, no matter how simple, correctly from start to finish.
Three cheers for ice cream!
