September 6th is National Coffee Ice Cream Day
you're looking for something to do today then grab yourself a spoon
because it's National Coffee Ice Cream Day! Oh yes, it's not just
a drink... but you knew that! Let's get right into celebrating
National Coffee Ice Cream Day!
WHY IS THIS A
Well, let's think about this for a moment... what is probably
the number one drink to be drunk to kick off the start of someone's
day? Coffee! So someone out there has to enjoy that flavor, right? And
we all know how much people love ice cream; they scream for it! So what
do you think is going to happen when you make an ice cream that has a
coffee flavor? Oh yes, there's going to be a whole lot of love tossed
around and people are going to be dying to celebrate this wonderful
invention. And you know, it's a pretty good time of year to get
an extra caffeine boost from your dessert. It's still a little hot out
but people are starting to go back to school. So as you finish off your
dinner, you might need a little boost for all the studying you have
ahead of you. And what would you reach for? Soda? Coffee? Nah, it's way
too hot for that... what about coffee ice cream? Now you're talking!
there are a wide variety of coffee ice cream flavors out there to
choose from. You can get ice cream that is completely one coffee flavor
or it can be swirled with other ice creams or fancy ingredients. And of
course, you know places like Starbucks had to capitalize on this ice
cream craze and come out with their own. So, if you love their coffee,
you might be able to get one of your favorite Starbucks drinks in ice
cream form. Wet your whistle with that one!
So, how can you celebrate today? Well, if I were you, I'd
probably start out at a local ice cream parlor. Get a few scoops of
some kind of coffee ice cream and then go crazy with the toppings. And
in all the things you wish you could mix into your coffee without
getting weird looks. Sprinkles, pretzels, cherries... put anything you
want to in there; I won't judge you. It's freaking ice cream, man!
But if you don't really have an ice cream parlor near you or if
it's late then hop on over to the grocery store. OK, I guess you can
drive there if you have to. ;) But I'm willing to bet you'll have 5 to
10 different coffee ice creams to choose from and you'll end up with a
whole lot more than a couple scoops. The next step is pretty
self-explanatory, but... if you need help deciding on what to do next,
you... eat it!
And you know, you can always make your own coffee
ice cream. Go ahead and brew some coffee just the way you like it; it
can be any coffee-infused drink you enjoy. Then you'll probably just
want to add in some extra cream or milk and probably a bit more sugar
than you're use to. And there you go... just pop it in your ice cream
maker or do the zip lock bag trick and you've got yourself some
customized coffee ice cream! Enjoy your day and don't get too
much of a buzz from your ice cream!
