Beat the Heat with 20 Frozen Treats

So it’s been over 90 degrees the past three days in Vermont. That’s not normal. While many of you may be used to a steady summer temp of 100 degrees +, for us Northeasteners it’s hard to beat the heat. Especially since it’s so humid. I think “ugh” is the most common word out of my mouth these days.

When it’s this hot, there’s only one thing (well maybe a few others) that I’m dying for and that’s ice cream. I love ice cream. Every single thing about it is spectacular. It’s cool, creamy, rich and delicious. It’s sweet and brings a smile a smile to my face with every bite. It’s just…yummy.

So instead of sharing just one frozen treat with you today, I’d thought I’d take a moment and bring you a bunch of different recipes that will let you break free of this awful heat wave and stay cool in the July sunshine.

Sit back, relax and enjoy!

    Not to mention most New England homes have no built-in AC, so those temps that you’re having that are normal for Southerners are even worse because you can’t even be comfortable in your own home! I just moved from NH to Germany, and homes here don’t have AC either and we just hit a heat wave that is going to last at least for the next week. Tonight we’re sleeping in the basement! These ice cream recipes will definitely help cool off before bed!
