It’s always a good time for desserts made with vanilla ice cream.

When I buy ice cream at the grocery store on a hot day, I just about need a police escort to get home fast enough so it doesn’t melt.

Thank goodness for an insulated cooler tote that I keep in the back of my car which buys me a little time.

I use it all the time to keep groceries cold when I have a couple stops to make.

So back to the real topic here, vanilla ice cream.

 

Although any flavor of ice cream is delicious, I often get vanilla ice cream because it makes such great shakes (along with malted milk powder)…and candy toppings of course.

Here’s a collection of scrumptious desserts made or served with vanilla ice cream.

Shakes:

Some are made with berries and fruit, including a shake made with dates.

Have you ever tried a date shake?  

It’s really good.

Whenever I’m in the Palm Springs, California area I have to stop and get a date shake first thing.

Desserts with Bourbon, Wine and a Shirley Temple:

Also below is a dessert made with Bourbon, one with browned butter, another made with wine, and even a red velvet ice cream float.

There’s also a spin on a Shirley Temple drink made with vanilla ice cream below that tastes wonderful.

Let’s check these out.
