It’s National Ice Cream Month! My family, especially my husband, LOVES ice cream. Actually, I don’t blame them for loving ice cream since it helps to combat the intense heat of the SoCal desert. During this time of the year, ice cream is a summer staple and you’ll often find 2 – 4 tubs of ice cream in our freezer. I know that we’re not alone in our love of ice cream, so I’ve rounded up my Top 20 Frosty Finds for National Ice Cream Month to serve, make, and have fun with!
Top Frosty Finds for National Ice Cream Month
I have a Cuisinart ice cream maker and use it during the summer to make our own homemade ice creams. This one has a spout to easily add in your ice cream treats.
2. Yaylabs Ice Cream Ball – Pint $29.91 – $39.99
Want to get the kids actively involved in making ice cream? Try this ice cream ball that can be taken anywhere -camping trips, picnics, and barbecues. It’s constructed of durable co-polyester for the outside and aluminum on the inside. Add ice and rock salt in one end, ice cream mix in the other, and shake/roll for 20 minutes. If you’re worried about the kids getting too rough, you can even buy an Inflatable Cover to encase the ball.
