Summer Ice Cream Treats - Pictures 5 & 6

Summer Ice Cream - Pictures 5 & 6
Ice cream can be really colorful. In fact it's amazing how beautiful an ice cream display freezer can look when strongly colored ice creams are displayed next to each other. These pictures (all of the same display freezer) demonstrate my point beautifully.

Ice cream in hues of blue, peach, brown, white, yellow, cream, purple and red!

Summer Ice Cream Treats - Picture 4

Summer Ice Cream - Picture 4
Another photograph of some French ice cream. This time it's not an ice cream cone but a delicious chocolate ice cream sundae. It was so sunny and warm on the day this photograph was taken that the ice cream was melting really quickly right before our eyes so we had to be quick!

If you like chocolate ice cream and want to try making your own, here is a quick and easy chocolate ice cream recipe that I came up with - no eggs, no cream, no custard base. Just use full fat milk, condensed milk and cocoa powder. It's a whizz!

Summer Ice Cream Treats - Picture 3

Summer Ice Cream - Picture 3
Taken in France on the beautiful Île de Ré in the Vendée region of France, this picture shows a close up of a delicious ice cream cone. It wasn't around for long!

I remember the day well because the camera had been really busy! We came back with shots of all sorts of interesting things we had seen along the route including pictures for a variety of sites and blogs that I'm involved with (medieval recipes to ghostly ancient castles and more!).

Back to the sublime .... read more about French ice cream. There's nothing quite like it :)

PS. Just conducted a poll on my ice cream recipes Facebook page. I asked how people liked their ice cream served - in a cone, a bowl, or some other way. Ice cream cone was the winner! As a result I've started a Facebook cone gallery

PPS. If you like the look of this ice cream, here is a great page about Vendée food and wine. When it comes to food, whether starters, main courses or desserts, the French really do have that 'savoir faire'.

Summer Ice Cream Treats - Ice Cream Picture 2

Summer Ice Cream Picture 2
An ice cream cone with a single scoop of creamy ice cream and a chocolate flake. Looks tempting doesn't it?

Well, you would be wrong to be tempted!

Not because of the calories - far from it .... this ice cream cone is not even edible!
It's an ice cream display cone made of plastic and was part of a display in an ice cream shop window that I passed.
