National Ice Cream Day = Easy Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream

Did you know that July 15 is National Ice Cream Day? I read it in Parents Magazine. (Apparently it is also Cow Appreciation Day and Tapioca Pudding Day, but I won't be celebrating those. Source) National Ice Cream Day apparently came about thanks to President Ronald Reagan who also named July National Ice Cream Month and picked the third Sunday of the month to be National Ice Cream Day. Many of the ice cream retailers will have specials including some free ice cream. Check yours locally.

To celebrate we made an easy homemade strawberry ice cream. I know I saw this somewhere and cannot find where it was. So if it was your blog, please let me know so I can link to it. Since I could not find my original source I went and googled it and found it at All Recipes

You take a package of frozen strawberries, 1/2 cup of sugar and 2/3 cup of heavy cream. 

Put them in your food processor and process. That is it. Then enjoy!!
We certainly did!
We also enjoyed a few books about ice cream.
The Full Scoop by Gail Gibbons is a great book that explains how ice cream is made and some history of it. It is the only one I found that actually was not just about factory made ice cream.

And of course, Curious George and the Ice Cream Surprise is always a favorite! 

 This is where I share...


  1. This recipe sounds so good. We'll have to try it. We celebrated today too.

  2. We read Ice Cream: The Full Scoop too...and this is my favorite vanilla ice cream recipe:

  3. Thanks for sharing on the Virtual Book Club for Kids linkup featuring Gail Gibbons! This looks so easy I'll have to try it with my girls!
