My family had an amazing time at the Turkey Hill Ice Cream Factory. If you love ice cream this place is a must. Some time ago I purchased discounted admission tickets ,and children under 4 enter the museum free! I’m so glad we didn’t let our tickets expire.
The museum guides you through the family history of Turkey Hill allowing you to hop in their first ice cream delivery truck and watch a short movie about the ice cream factory. You are able to start to finish experience what it takes to make delicious ice cream and teas. There are cows to milk, quality control microscopes to determine if the milk is up to par, mixing and packaging stations where you can name and design your own package! You can even take a walk through the freezer, make a commercial and best of all…. UNLIMITED SAMPLES! The samples are a size of a scoop somy family was soooo full before we got to the Taste Lab! We were able to make our own pint sized flavor! This was a yummy experience for any ice cream lover!
Thanks to my love for snapping these great photos in between bites of ice cream 🙂
Literally you can’t tell me and my daughter that we aren’t certified Chef’s.
Starting with the matching aprons to the finished product of yummy goodness… In our mind we are world renowned. I’m on a quest to replace some of our old habit dishes with much healthier alternatives.
Since my third trimester of pregnancy I have fallen so far off the vegan wagon that I rarely recognize myself at the dinner table. Healthy living is important to me and setting the proper dietary example for Liv is crucial in ensuring she has the right nutritional routine.
So for today’s tasty victory….. *drum roll please* One ingredient “ice cream” made ONLY with bananas!
The simple instructions are as follows:
*Grab some ripe bananas (ours were spotted…. Which is a great way to get full use of your fruit since at my home if they aren’t yellow the usually get neglected)
*Slice the bananas
*Place them on a lined baking sheet
*Pop them in the freezer uncovered
*Once frozen use whatever blending device you have ( I used my Nutribullet)
*At this point you have your finished product ( you may have to stir it up to give a good blend)
The ” ice cream” is a soft serve texture at this point. If you desire a harder more scoopable version just pop the blended soft serve “ice cream” in the freezer again.
This recipe is simple, kidfriendly, healthy and oh so yummy!
For my scoop I added chocolate chips and walnuts! I can’t explain how excited we are to have this delicious and inexpensive dairy alternative treat.
