Can it really be May 6 and only 46 degrees F? Despite this, I'm really looking forward to a warm summer. Hopefully not a humid summer, just nice and warm. We took the girls for a walk the other day - they walked beside us all the way to Culver's (7 blocks). Addie and I split a dish of Cookies & Cream and Lily had the slow melt Popsicle I had stashed in one of the strollers. As we walked and chatted, I thought about Lily and if I was going to have to stash Popsicles for her for the rest of her life. It made me mad to think that there isn't a lot of options for people who want non-dairy ice cream. Sure, there's Soy Delicious and Tofutti, but there isn't anything in our area for people who just want to go out for a quick ice cream cone. Or enjoy something when their entire family goes out. Culvers has Lemon Ice in the summer, but they haven't rolled that out yet. Plus, I get a little nervous giving Lily anything from the land of Butterburgers.
I think it would be amazingly cool to open up a dairy-free ice cream place. Heck, make it dairy-free, nut-free and gluten free too. However we live in the sticks and I think that dream will have to wait. So... anyone know of any good ice cream recipes I could try out? Anyone know of a good ice cream maker to try?
