I holler, you yell, we all shout for ice cream! Or something like that. The point is: ice cream is awesome. It's creamy, cold, and barring the occasional bout of brain freeze, it's the perfect summer dessert. It requires no baking, which means no sitting around in the kitchen fanning yourself with a dish towel, and the ingredients are as simple as you can get. Celebrate National Ice Cream Day today by making your own batch of this frosty sweet treat!
