Although it's raining here in New York as a write this, August is usually prime time to enjoy delicious frozen treats amidst the blistering summer heat. That's why August 14th is dedicated to one of the most popular desserts out there - the almighty Creamsicle!
If you don't know what a Creamsicle is, you're crazy. But...I'll let you know anyway. Creamsicle is actually a brand name, but the word has entered popular culture as the general name for any type of desert that combines vanilla ice cream with a layer of frozen fruity ice over it. The most common ice is orange-flavored, although various berry variations exist, as does a chocolate version (the Fudgscicle).
To celebrate this delicious zany holiday, try making your own creamsicles from scratch. If popsicles aren't your thing, try making this interesting looking drink (please celebrate responsibly).
