As a kid growing up strawberry flavored things were at the top of my list of things I didn’t like, and there’s not much I don’t like! Strawberry ice cream – no thank you! Strawberry cake – I’ll pass! Fresh strawberries, on the other hand, I love! So when I went to make this Strawberry Daiquiri Ice Cream I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it. Well you know what? I loved it and I know you will too!
I’ve been searching a while for a new ice cream maker and I finally found one on clearance at my local grocery store. I can’t believe how fast it makes ice cream compared to my old manual one! I had a batch of ice cream in under 30 minutes – sweet! This recipe was the first one to break it in and it definitely won’t be the last. Actually, my next ice cream recipe I post will be even better than this one!
While we’re on the subject of ice cream (which makes me think of summertime)…..can you believe it’s August 1st today? Where is the time going?
It already feels like Fall where I live and I haven’t done half the stuff I had on my list of things I wanted to do this summer. We’ve gone to the cottage once, went boating with friends once, had one campfire in our backyard and the rest of time we’ve been working around the house. Before summer started I had these great expectations that we’d get all of the work done around the house, it would go smoothly and stress-free, and all would be accomplished by the end of the summer! Ya, right! I seemed to forget about driving kids to and from daycamp, being a short-order cook everyday, tidying up the house a few times a day, doing loads of laundry, and just being a mom to three kids! I guess if a few things get done I should be happy, right?
I’m not giving up on summer yet. I’m going to enjoy every day, making the best of it and eating ice cream!
Summer’s way too short not to enjoy ice cream any chance you get!
