As part of my American Classics recipe column over at Serious Eats, I've been seeking out regional ice cream recipes in honor of National Ice Cream month. Last week I made Grape-Nuts ice cream and in my recipe research I stumbled across Blue Moon Ice Cream, a brilliant blue ice cream that tastes something like blue raspberry/bubble gum/cotton candy goodness. Hmmm...sounds like Smurf base to me. I couldn't resist. I took half of the batch of Blue Moon that I made and I folded in some mini-marshmallow pieces. Ooooh, yeah...tastes like the real deal. Smurf ice cream success. Now that's something that my seven-year-old self would have been seriously impressed by.
Do you have a favorite regional ice cream flavor? Or a treasured favorite flavor from childhood?
