A simple, no churn Ice Cream
As always, I’m a little late to the party…it feels like there’s a National Day for everything and I cannot keep up with them all. But Ice Cream? It doesn’t just get a day, it has it’s own month…and that month is, of course, July! Alas, it is no longer July, but August! See; told ya, late to the party. It’s how my life seems to go. But I’m okay with that, gone are the days when I feel the need to keep up with everyone and everything, one of the many perks of being over 50! But here it is, late as can be, Circus Animal Cookie Ice Cream!
And honestly, is it ever too late for an ice cream recipe? I think not!
I love the combination of ice cream and cookies; like my Simple Ice Cream Cake or my Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches! And this recipe is no different; it’s cool, light and refreshing and pairing it with crushed Circus Animal cookies…oh be still my clogging arteries (just kidding!). I’m a firm believer in healthy, whole foods; but Circus Animal cookies? I guess it’s no longer a secret, I love them. I know they are made with not great stuff; I know, I know, but it’s about balance right? I don’t eat them all the time, maybe once or twice a year. So leave them out if you want, or crush your favorite cookies and toss them in instead, either way you should make this no-churn ice cream.
