June 1st. The month when SUMMER begins! Did you know today is National Barefoot Day? I’m going to honor it by going barefoot and enjoying a bowl of this yummy Creamy Banana Berry Ice Cream we made over the weekend. I first tasted this when my sis in law, Diane made it for us in her hand crank ice cream maker. Why would anyone purposely buy a hand crank model over a standard electric model? Diane, a total yellow (party) personality, as opposed to my red (as a mom) personality, thought it would be fun to have the kids take turns cranking and taking part in making the ice cream. Well, that lasted for about 2-3 minutes tops, then they found more important things to do, like PLAY. Even though we had 10 kids between us, we would get about 12 minutes of total hand crank time out of the kiddos. A few years later, Mother’s Day rolled around and I scored on a lovely Cold Mountain electric ice cream maker. Now, the machine does the work. It’s tart, sweet, fruity, rich, creamy. So easy. So yummy.
It’s like tasting summer.
