National Ice Cream Month

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month. He recognized ice cream as a fun and nutritious food that is enjoyed by a full 90 percent of the nation's population.  President Reagan called for all people of the United States to observe these events with "appropriate ceremonies and activities."

Ice cream is not a treat that I indulge in very often, but I would like to try making homemade tea flavor ice cream.  This recipe for chai ice cream from The Daily Tea sounds delicious.

Since I now have some Matcha  green tea powder that I received from The Republic of Tea, I can try making Matcha ice cream.  This video shows the simple preparation with a link to the recipe at Just One Cookbook.

Earl Grey Ice Cream

Earl Grey Ice Cream sounds good.

Have any of you tried making ice cream with your favorite tea?

I have not made ice cream with tea but I am certainly willing to give it a try!

We love ice cream around here - every month of the year! I had 'rose' ice cream once, but haven't made any tea flavored ice creams. Although, I made a 'garlic' sorbet for our garlic dinner a few years ago! That was unusual.
