Summertime = Ice Cream
It’s my favorite time of year – Ice Cream Time! Well, I love ice cream year-round, but right now I am celebrating all things Ice Cream with one of my favorite Homemade Ice Cream flavors. This amazing Chocolate Covered Cherry Ice Cream version is made with fresh, sweet cherries and chocolate chunks! Oh my – it is amazing!
Ok y’all we’re going on day #3 of prepping for camping. Today is the day that I make ice cream! I know y’all are probably thinking this gall is crazy! Who packs ice cream in an ice chest and takes it camping? Well….I do!
You see I am not a big marshmallow or s’mores fan. I know, now you’re positive I’m crazy! I get that marshmallows and s’mores are a camping must…but that doesn’t mean we have to have them every night. So I always make up 2 quarts of homemade ice cream for our first night’s dessert. Super easy – mix it, freeze it and then use it as ice in your cooker until eaten!
Don’t forget the accessories!
This particular ice cream is lovely. Fresh rainier cherries, almond milk and dark chocolate…how can it go wrong?
