Cinnamon, Ice Cream Style!

July 17

Yesterday was National Ice Cream Day so I sure hope you got a chance to celebrate by indulging on some icy treats!  I’m happy to say that my family got to enjoy the “holiday” by making one of our all-time favorite flavors…cinnamon!  We were inspired to experiment and create this family favorite after visiting a tiny ice cream shop near my family’s farm in Indiana…the same shop that my mom frequented when she was young!  They had a flavor that my mom loved as a kid and now my kids do too…so we were determined to try and replicate it the best we could since we couldn’t find anything quite like it in the stores!  Not only does this ice cream taste delicious and look divine, but I love the nostalgia which makes it an extra special treat each time we fire up the ice cream maker! Today I’d like to share with you the recipe for our version of the parlor favorite…so let’s churn up some fun!

we all scream…for cinnamon ice cream!

if you love ice cream and like to experiment with flavors, i’d highly recommend picking up an ice cream maker!  they’re so plentiful now and they’re practically effortless to use!  we happen to love our Cuisinart maker…it has a removable bowl that we keep in the freezer at all times so it’s ready to whip up a batch of ice cream at the drop of a hat!
