6 WAYS TO EAT ICE CREAM FOR BREAKFAST
We’re all about appreciating the moments that matter. There’s no better example of a moment like that than one of our favorite holidays, Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day on February 6. What may have sounded like a fantasy as a kid, is actually a real-life holiday. We promise we didn’t make this holiday…but we sure love to celebrate it!
Instead, we created a special seasonal ice cream flavor just for the occasion—Cinnamon French Toast! Coming up with new flavors is one of our favorite activities, so we also created Malted Milk Ball with February as National Chocolate Lovers Month in mind.
So, when Saturday morning rolls around, don’t hit snooze! We’re sharing six recipes inspired by Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day. These sweet transformations are so creative and delicious, we think they’ll have you out of bed early.
ACTUAL FRENCH TOAST, BUT MAKE IT BAKED
We’re kicking off this recipe roundup with the breakfast favorite that earned its own ice cream flavor—French toast! Kit from The Kittchen shares two variations of French toast—classic, and overnight baked French toast. While she uses Traverse City Cherry Fudge in her overnight baked French toast recipe, the flavor combinations are endless! Get the recipe here.
A WHOLE NEW MEANING TO WAFFLE CONES
Ever thought about incorporating ice cream into your favorite recipe rather than just as the perfect garnish? Why not?! Beth at The First Year shows us how by adding Cinnamon French Toast into this waffle recipe and takes it a step further by adding an extra scoop right on top. Waffle. Cone. Get it? Get the recipe here.
POWER TO THE PANCAKE
We know melting an entire carton of ice cream sounds like some kind of sick joke, but just trust Savannah and her recipe for super easy, ice cream pancakes that only require three ingredients. Less time in the kitchen means more time on the couch. Get the recipe here.
THE SUNDAE BOWL YOU’VE BEEN WAITING FOR
If you’re looking for something more bite-sized, look no further. These cinnamon roll bowl ice cream sundaes from Samantha at Gold Coast Girl are scrumptious, easy to make, and best of all, they’re edi-bowl. Plus, add your own twist with your favorite ice cream flavor and selection of toppings and you’ve just made yourself the perfect early morning treat. Get the recipe here.
A PAIR OF HANDHELD TREATS
Speaking of handheld treats, who knew tacos and donuts would ever have a place at the dessert table? Well, Anna at A Lily Love Affair has made all our dreams come true with her latest recipes: Ice Cream Tacos and Donut Ice Cream Sandwiches. Whether you’re having a frozen fiesta or squeezing a scoop of ice cream between two slices of deep-fried deliciousness, make these all your own! (Don’t forget the napkin, these can get messy.)
In our world, the rules of dessert are meant to be broken, which is why we love the idea of ice cream for breakfast—it’s unexpected! Looking for even more ideas? Check out more breakfast ideas in this recipe blog to start your day right.
