TIP OF THE DAY: Melted Ice Cream

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.
