July is National Ice Cream Month, and who doesn’t like experimenting with this frosty, delicious treat? Did you know people in the United States eat about 23 gallons of ice cream per year on average? We think we can get that number even higher — especially when you check out the number of flavors and varieties available at your local Food Town. We’ve compiled some of the internet’s most tasty ice cream-based dessert recipes and treats for you. And if alternative milks are more your thing, we’ve also got some great non-dairy “ice cream” selections at your local grocery.
Ice Cream Cakes
Ice cream cakes are a fun way to celebrate summer birthdays, anniversaries and other special events. Why turn on a hot oven when you can bite into the cold, creamy goodness of cake-shaped ice cream? It’s two treats in one! Ice cream cakes are easy to make, and you can combine any flavors under the sun. Try the Butter Pecan Ice Cream Torte or giant, cake-sized Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwich from our Ice Cream! Pinterest board. There are plenty of other recipe ideas in there that you’ll want to try out, too.
Ice Cream Sandwiches
What’s better than a plate full of ice cream cake? How about ice cream layered between two donuts? Oh yes, neighbor, you can make ice cream sandwiches out of almost anything. Want to go sweet and savory? Try one of the salty, savory recipes from our Waffle Iron Hacks Pinterest board and layer a thick coating of sweet ice cream between two waffles. Cookies, pancakes, graham crackers and brownies are all fair game in sandwich making, too, so check out the snack aisle before you check out!
Did you know you can make root beer float popsicles with real vanilla ice cream? It’s true. You can also combine your favorite fruit and juices to make homemade creamsicles with very little effort. We put together a collection of our favorite homemade popsicle recipes, and they’re easy and fun to make all summer long. You can even mix in some adult beverages for grown-up party popsicles.
