It’s National Vanilla Ice Cream Day today. I just love summer food holidays, don’t you?

Allow me to twist your arm with 10 vanilla + ice cream recipes. I’m sure it’ll just be torture working either of those two items into your diet:

Vanilla Avocado Banana “Ice Cream” (vegan, GF) – I promise this doesn’t taste like guacamole; the avocado simply lends creaminess and richness to the ice cream

Will you be eating ice cream or something with vanilla in it today in honor of Vanilla Ice Cream Day?

I adore vanilla and I don’t think a day goes by where I don’t eat something that’s been flavored with vanilla extract.

Vanilla candles, vanilla-scented lotion, or vanilla body spray picks up where the vanilla extract leaves off.

I just posted the other day about making your own vanilla extract, too.

Have a great week and thanks for the Zoku Single Quick Pop Maker and Chocolate Station Giveaway entries
