Summer is here and there are few things better on a hot day than a cold dish of ice cream. Sometimes sweet, sometimes savory but always creamy and cold, ice cream is one way for you to enjoy the summer sunshine while keeping cool.
If you are a label reader like I am, you are probably wondering just how healthy all of the artificial flavorings and colorings added into most commercially available ice cream is for you. And you are probably compelled to make ice cream yourself to make sure you have something more natural to enjoy. Fortunately, there are several great recipes for making a good frosty treat ranging from quick ways to make a single serving of the frosty stuff to recipes that take time to create and reward your patience with great flavors.
Take advantage of the Michigan grown fruit that will be in season soon so you can enjoy the best of Michigan’s orchards while keeping cool this summer.
