Simply Bananas About Ice Cream

Ice cream cones are always welcome on a warm sunny afternoon whilst out walking. It doesn't matter which country you might be in or where you might be walking because there is just something perennially attractive about a simple ice cream cone.

The only problem tends to be choosing a flavor because there are so many to chose from. I was at any ice cream parlor the other day where there were no less than 30 ice cream flavors on display, some of which I had never seen before and that's saying something!

Amongst the flavors on offer were chestnut, saffron, prune and goat's cheese and the parlor owner was kind enough to give me a taste of them all. How's that for sharing in a passion for ice cream!

The fact that I had just had an appetizing lunch meant that I didn't feel adventurous enough to try any one of those really unusual flavors but I promised myself I would return another time and do so :)

So what did I settle for? Simple banana ice cream. Absolutely delicious.

If you fancy trying some at home here is my own simple and easy banana ice cream recipe. It's ideal for when you're in a rush or need a quick treat using simple ingredients. It also doesn't require any eggs.

Jack Russell Loves His Cone

Everyone loves ice cream - even cats and dogs. In fact, it's not just fun for them to have a taste occasionally but it can be very therapeutic. For those of you who haven't been following this blog for very long, I featured a heartwarming story 4 years ago about a Jack Russell called Woodso (pictured left) whose life was saved by eating ice cream. Sounds crazy perhaps but true! Read Woodso's story here and how his recovery after emergency surgery was aided by eating ice cream.

So why mention Woodso? Well, I was browsing YouTube and was reminded of his story when I came across a video of another Jack Russell with a fondness for ice cream - I just had to share it with you. The constant tail wagging says it all and the relish with which he tackles the cone is a joy. I dare you not to smile :)
