Frozen Treats for the Summer



I dipped into the archives to remind myself of the frozen treats that I have made and find a few worthy of repeating. I focused on ice cream as the fourth of July is just around the corner.  They are all different and they are all totally delicious!! Take a look, you are certain to find an ice cream that suits your palate.


Blubarb Pie


This is a most unconventional pie!  Blubarb Pie doesn't even bare any resemblance to pie....it does has a few shards of crust served alongside rhubarb ice cream with a spoonful or two of blueberry sauce.  What could be more tasty?

Lemon Velvet Ice Cream


You will want to make this....you just will....it has a wonderfully balanced combination of sweet and tart....and, it lives up to its name....Lemon Velvet.  Lemon Velvet...yep, the perfect name...smooth, creamy....perfect!  It did not last long at our house.  Yes, you will want to make this one!

Rum, Date and Pecan Ice Cream


Have you ever had a date shake?  Well I had never...and it didn't really sound good either.  But, Mr. T. kept telling me that I had to try it so...we went on a date.  One taste....Boy, was I wrong..it was amazing and no, I did not share my shake!   Date shakes rock!

With that in my mind, as I read through The Perfect Scoop, I was a bit biased when I saw a recipe for Rum, Date and Pecan Ice Cream.  This is the perfect combination of flavors....dates and rum...I was happy to have the dates move over and share the stage.  Delicious!  Come to think of it...you will want to make this one too!

I am sharing today at Full Plate Thursday hosted by Miz Helen't Country Cottage and Foodie Friday at Rattlebridge Farm.

  5. I like them all, that could be a problem but that Lemon Velvet seems to be calling my name.

  6. It has been crazy hot these last few weeks. The desire to turn on the stove is minimal. I have found myself enjoying frozen fruit bars and ice cream, loaded with fruit.

    Your post is continuing to inspire me, Thanks.
