Peppermint Choc Chip Nice cream; sweet and creamy with a hint of peppermint and lots of choc chips… and no guilt in sight!
I am one of those people…. the people who need to know the end of the movie before it’s over, the person who it takes every ounce of will power NOT to read the end of the book first… I even like to know not just what the weather will be tomorrow, or for the next week… I love a good long range weather forecast for the next month… and as of this week… I think this might be the last super hot week we get..
So I figured that I better make the most of it… wearing all those summer dresses, contemplating heading to the waterfall for a quick dip (never done that and in all honesty, not sure I’ll follow through!) and of course… nice cream! And why not celebrate St.Pats Day with all things green at the same time?!

Ice cream is not just a summer thing and in fact I think it tastes best on hot apple pie, but I have fond memories of when I was a kid we would ride our bike while Mum walked with us up to the local ice creamery. We would scan their 101 flavours so carefully and always end up choosing the same… slowly walk home with the chirp of the crickets and the sun setting behind the hills…. ahhhhh. Love a good memory!
I love me a little nice cream… not that there is anything wrong with ice cream, but I love nice cream… delicious, cold, smooth and a little better for you 🙂
Peppermint choc chip was always my cousin’s favourite and I’ll be honest… I didn’t get it at the time. But like all good things, with age my taste buds matured to appreciate things like olives, mushrooms… and peppermint choc chip nice cream 😉
