Do you love ice cream as much as we do? If you can’t go a day, a week, or even a month without the delicious flavors of ice cream, then we know how you feel. While you may be a pro at eating ice cream, did you know that there are some really interesting facts about ice cream?The tallest ice cream cone was over 9 feet tall in Italy.
Ice-creams are the quintessential summertime treat. When we think of the summer, we think of a bar or scoop of cold, delicious ice-cream on a hot day. But we never associate ice-cream with health—we think of ice-cream as a junk food, full of fat and sugar, without much nutritive value. But what if we told you that that’s not true? Ice-cream can be delicious and good for our health too!
Ice-cream is often made very simply, with simple ingredients and processes. The most common form of ice-cream is made with milk, milk fat, sugar, and flavouring agents. These ingredients are churned together and then frozen to particular temperatures to make the yummy frozen summertime treat that we all know and love to indulge on.
When eaten in moderation, ice-cream can have surprising health benefits. Since it’s made of milk—and often whole milk containing fat—ice-cream contains many of the same nutrients and minerals that are present in milk.
