Wonderfully, Creamy Pumpkin Ice Cream speckled with Vanilla Beans and Spiced to perfection!
Our leaves just turned here in the last couple of weeks, and now they’re already falling off the trees..what the heck. So much for Fall foliage this year. It went from being in the 70’s two weeks ago down to the 30’s and 40’s..I feel like we jumped from Summer to Winter down here..not to much Fall.
Do you eat Ice Cream year round, or are you a Summer only ice cream eater? I like it all.the.time. One of my favorites this time of year is Ben & Jerry’s Red Velvet flavor, it’s got cream cheese swirls and its to die for. Dangerous I tell yah, I can pretty much demolish the entire pint in a sitting. It’s embarrassing, I know.
Speaking of eating an entire pint of ice cream…those of you with kids, how do you work out in the winter on freezing or rainy days? (see what I did there, ice cream=exercise…I guess?) My gym has “in sight care”, so basically its a bunch of treadmills, elliptical, weights, etc surrounding a big play area, and YOU watch your kids while you work out…Ive tried it, talk about the most stressful workout session ever. For something that is usually enjoyable, or that I use to de-compress, watching your 10 month old climb up the stairs and slide head first down a tall slide…umm yeah, heart attack central. SO I don’t really have other alternatives, it’s getting way to cold to go in the stroller, and I pretty much hate living room workouts at the moment..I go through phases with those. Sounds like I’m SOL.
Moving back to ice cream…because it solves all problems. Kinda. I made a Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream and added lots of speckles of perfect little vanilla beans..it’s fantastic. It tastes like Fall, its got a little texture from the graham cracker crumbs, it’s spiced up with extra cinnamon, I’m pretty in love with it.
Now, go eat some ice cream!
