Hello, everyone and happy summer! These hot days always make me crave one of my childhood favorite treats – ice cream! Even now as an adult and a dietitian I still enjoy a great ice cream on a hot summer day while keeping in mind good nutrition. Life is all about balance and I think we all can enjoy a sweet treat every once in a while without feeling guilty. One of my favorite picks is Kemps Vanilla Frozen Yogurt, with no sugar added. Not only does it satisfy my sweet tooth with it’s amazing flavor, but it’s no added sugar – yay!

As you’re well aware, July is National Ice Cream Month! With so much innovation in the ice cream and frozen desserts aisle over the years, there are treats for everyone; whether you’re dairy-free, gluten-free, sugar-free, etc. With today’s changing health situations and adapted ways of living, major ice cream companies have made the shift of producing ice cream both for those who enjoy dairy products and those who do not. That way ice cream and other frozen desserts can be enjoyed by anyone and everyone!
Today, which is National Hot Fudge Sundae Day, is all about celebrating and enjoying the tastiness of this unique dessert that was invented at the very end of the 1800s and gained popularity in the beginning of the 1900s. Do you know why it’s spelled “sundae”?
It’s National Vanilla Ice Cream Day! While there are countless ice cream flavors out there, vanilla ice cream continues to be the most popular. Surprisingly enough, however; it was not the first ice cream flavor. It wasn’t until the discovery of the Americas that chocolate and vanilla crept onto the ice cream scene. Being able to indulge in basic ice cream flavors like vanilla and chocolate used to be a luxury reserved for high society.
