I'm weird with ice cream. I know there are people out there who love it. I'm married to one of them, and the daughter to another. I don't love ice cream. I mean, I like it okay, but it's not a "need to have" thing for me. If ice cream is offered for dessert, I'm just as likely to pass. And I'm really uninterested in the winter.
I just have no desire to eat cold things in the winter - with the exception of salads, which I adore year-round. Ice cream for me is strictly a summer treat. So now that it's getting warmer, the idea of cold, creamy ice cream sounds really appealing. And I especially like it in drink form. Because I'm super lazy, and straws require less effort than a spoon.
Milkshakes are fine, and I do appreciate a good milkshake, but if we're going for low effort, a cream soda is the way to go. No blender to clean, it's a one-cup recipe. Just put in 3 ingredients and stir. Which gives you more time to sit back and sip!
