Sometimes the best laid plans just don’t go as planned. During June I had high expectations to work out to finally achieve ripped abs; totally vain, I admit. I wanted to prove to myself that moms can have rock hard midsections too. Nevertheless, my six pack endeavors were waylaid by an everlasting cold. It started as a sore throat, became a lower respiratory infection and then finally a typical head cold… and lasted the entire month. So much for my abs of steel.Actually, I did get flat abs last month because of that blasted cold.
Why? I couldn’t taste food for about two weeks. TWO WEEKS! No seconds, no decadent desserts, no satisfaction.
Do you know how discouraging that is for a foodie? Eating becomes routine if you can’t get any palette pleasure from it.
As soon as that glorious day came when I could almost smell my chocolate cupcakes baking, it was time to CELEBRATE!! And celebrate I did, with this incredible cinnamon roll ice cream.If you’re ever in a bind for easy ice cream recipes, then you’d better have this homemade ice cream recipe in your arsenal! It’s a goldmine. The base is a simple mixture of heavy cream and sweetened condensed milk. To that you can add just about any mix-ins or flavorings you’d like and almost always end up with some outstanding ice cream.Here’s how we’ll make it. First, chop up 3 cinnamon rolls. Eat the gooiest bits because you’re the chef and it’s your prerogative. Beat together the cream cheese frosting. Then make the cinnamon ice cream by whipping the cream and stiring in the sweetened condensed milk and cinnamon. Layer it all in a loaf pan and freeze. Couldn’t get much easier!Now, you could use store-bought cinnamon rolls or the bake-and-eat tube variety, but nothing beats homemade cinnamon rolls! A friend gave us some cinnamon rolls while I was sick and everything tasted like cardboard, so I stashed those treasures in the freezer for later nibbling. Those frozen rolls inspired this ice cream that you and your pals will absolutely go bonkers for!
