July is National Ice Cream Month and here at Kreider Farms, we only ever make the real (good) stuff. Don’t settle for those “frozen desserts” that are taking over the ice cream cases, Kreider Farms ice cream is always 100% real ice cream, made with the farm fresh cream from our cows here in Lancaster County! Real ice cream is required to contain at least 10 percent dairy fat, (that’s the stuff that makes it thick, creamy and delicious) while “frozen or dairy desserts” do not and often whip more air into their products which means you’re getting less bang for your buck. So, stock up on the real thing by choosing Kreider’s the next time you’re browsing the ice cream aisle, you can find a full list of retailers and local dipping parlors that choose to carry Kreider Farms here.
After you stock up on your favorite Kreider flavors, there are countless, unique ways to enjoy your ice cream! In celebration of National Ice Cream month, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite treats below! Mix up your average bowl or scoop with one of these five easy and fun recipes!
Make it into a sandwich with your favorite cookies.
If you aren’t afraid of getting a little messy, throw a few scoops between two of your favorite cookies (or some mini waffles)! For some extra flare, roll the sides into sprinkles or chocolate chips and enjoy.
Drink it up.
The classic root beer float never disappoints; just chill a glass of root beer and top off with a scoop (or two) of French vanilla ice cream. You can easily switch it up by replacing the root beer with a cherry cola or orange soda and using chocolate ice cream or our orange creamsicle!
Calling all choco-holics.
If you’re a chocolate fan, serve it up on a warm brownie and top with chocolate and/or caramel sauce and a sprinkle of chocolate chips. The combination of the warm, gooey brownie with the creamy melting ice cream is pure heaven.
Re-invent the ice cream cone.
This one is sure to be a hit with the kids! Take some rainbow-colored ice cream cones and fill two-thirds of the way full with your favorite cake or brownie batter. Bake according to the cake or brownie instructions or until the cake springs back to the touch. Top with a scoop of ice cream, whipped cream and sprinkles for a fun treat!
Bake it into a cake.
Wait, ice cream? In a cake? You heard us right, this easy 2-ingredient “ice cream bread” is simple enough for anyone to whip up! Just mix 2 cups of your favorite ice cream with 1 ½ cups of self-rising flour. Bake in a loaf pan at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until set. Let cool, slice and serve by itself or throw another scoop of ice cream on top and sprinkle with chocolate chips or sprinkles!
