I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!! When it’s this warm outside, there is one dessert we all crave: ice cream! The cold, refreshing feeling we get with each bite cools us down in a delicious way. There are so many creative ways to enjoy National Ice Cream Month. Here are American Legend’s top four ways to celebrate:
1. Support a local ice cream shop: Ice cream is such a beloved dessert and you can find an ice cream shop in just about every neighborhood. We encourage all of our families to find some time this month to support local businesses while also celebrating National Ice Cream Month with the whole family! Try Moo Moo’s Rolled Ice Cream Shop in Aurora close to our Hilltop 55+ at Inspiration community or Freddie’s Frozen Custard in Timnath near our Kitchel Lake at Serratoga Falls community.
2. Make your own homemade Ice cream: Making your own homemade ice cream can sound like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be! This recipe teaches you how you can make ice cream in a bag! You can experiment and make it any flavor you want. This is something that everyone in the family can do and you can sample everyone’s different flavors! Hard work never tasted so good.
3. Ice cream taste test: Holding an ice cream taste test is a creative way to celebrate National Ice Cream Month. Your kids can invite friends over and have fun with the mystery of which flavor they will taste next. You can either cover the labels of the different flavors everyone will try or blindfold each person. It is their job to try and guess which flavor they just tried! How many flavors can you get right?
4. Host an ice cream party: Who doesn’t love a good party with a whole lot of ice cream?! This month is the perfect excuse to host a party focused on friends and ice cream! Everything can be ice cream-themed from the decorations (check these out on Amazon) to the pool floats, even your charcuterie board can be designed to look like an ice cream cone (we love this charcuterie cone stand!). Have fun with it and make it as colorful as the sprinkles you top your ice cream with!
Ice cream can be a staple dessert for just about every meal. It’s not only refreshing, it’s just plain delicious! National Ice Cream Month is a time to celebrate the happiness that ice cream brings us. American Legend Homes can’t wait to have a scoop with you this month. But savor it slowly to prevent any brain freeze!
