In many homes, ice cream is a favorite treat, but in spite of this fact, many homes do not have ice cream in the freezer, because it sometimes seems that ice cream is so much better when it is purchased at an ice cream shop! While this is actually true in many instances, ice cream is also far more expensive when purchased at an ice cream shop, as you will often end up spending as much money on one serving of ice cream at such a shop as you would spend on an entire carton of ice cream that you could keep in your freezer - and for this reason, it is beneficial for you to know some ways to enjoy your ice cream at home! One idea for enjoying your ice cream at home is for you to do ice cream sundaes; of course, this will cost more than a trip to the ice cream shop the first time you do it, as you will need to pick up all the various ingredients, but once you have all the "add-ons" in your pantry and refrigerator, they will last for a long time! You can also make a homemade version of Cold Stone Creamery ice cream using these same add-ons; simply put a couple metal spoons and a glass cutting board in the freezer for a bit, and then mix the ingredients into your ice cream on top of this cutting board! And when it comes to enjoying your ice cream at home, one of the most classic ways is with milkshakes and ice cream floats; you can make a great variety of different kinds of milkshakes at home, and you can make your ice cream floats with root beer, cola, or anything else that fits your taste preferences! When you start to get creative with making your ice cream at home more delicious, you will not only be able to save some money, but you just might find that it is a lot tastier than what you could buy at an ice cream shop as well!
