Any time of the year is perfect for Latin-inspired ice cream ideas, but when you live in Phoenix, it’s always a good time to eat something cold and refreshing.
Yup, that’s my situation these days.
It ain’t pretty over here in the land of cacti and chili peppers. I’ve burned my fingertips just trying to open my metal mailbox. My favorite silver heart hoop earrings singed my tender neckline while I drove home in the afternoon. And my personal favorite – I left a bag of craft supplies in the car only to find all the glue sticks melted into one giant blob.
So how do I process all this heat-related trauma? Eating ice cream! I thought I’d share the inspiration and add a bit of cultura to the mix. That way if you feel so inclined, you can indulge in one of these delicious concoctions!
