|How many times have you left the ice cream or frozen yogurt out, returning to find it half- or all-melted?
We’ve done it more than a few times. We’ve also discovered that refreezing the ice cream produces a lot of nasty crystals: crunchy ice cream that’s not enjoyable.
Instead, we repurpose the melted ice cream. Stick the container in the fridge and try these “recipes” in the next day or two:
- Shakes. Melted ice cream makes a delicious shake. If it’s too thick or rich, you can dilute it with some milk.
- Smoothies. Blend with fruit for a rich smoothie.
- Sauce. Instead of pound cake, brownie or pie topped with a scoop of ice cream, use the melted ice cream as a sauce topping. It also can top puddings, fruit and numerous other desserts.
- Dessert Shots. Serve a small glass of cold, melted ice cream with cookies or other dessert.
