I scream, You scream, We all scream for Ice Cream!

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day. He recognized ice cream as a fun and nutritious food that is enjoyed by over 90 percent of the nation's population. In the proclamation, President Reagan called for all people of the United States to observe these events with "appropriate ceremonies and activities."


There are several ways to celebrate Ice Cream month. One is to invite a few friends over to make homemade ice cream. Below is a link to 5 homemade icecream recipes including Banana Ice Cream. This homemade ice cream is easier than you ever imagined. More important, it's low in sugar and calories, and high in omega-3s, fiber, and Resistant Starch, a healthy carb that boosts metabolism and burns fat.
