Did you know that in 1984, President Reagan declared that July be named National Ice Cream Month and the first Sunday of July as National Ice Cream Day? This sweet, creamy treat is so beloved that it earned a whole month to celebrate its goodness!
There are plenty of ways to celebrate National Ice Cream Month. If you live near Bedford Hills, NY—where we’re located—you’ll find many great dessert spots. Our favorites are MeMe’s Treats (which also serves delicious baked goods), Frannie’s Goodie Shop (offering healthy or indulgent frozen yogurt options), or the simple joy of Carvel.
You can also make your own ice cream following a recipe, such as one of these scrumptious ideas from Southern Living, such as pineapple mint or banana coconut. Each of these creamy treats are sure to cool you down, while satisfying your sweet tooth more than ever before.
No matter how you celebrate this month, make sure you share that sweet treat with someone special!
