Here’s The Scoop On National Ice Cream Day

While July is National Ice Cream Month, the third Sunday in July is always National Ice Cream Day. You can thank President Ronald Reagan for that! This real-ish holiday can be observed in a variety of ways, but we find the best way is to make your own ice cream.

Americans buy the most amount of ice cream during June and July, primarily because of the warmer summer weather. According to a 2015 report, American manufacturers produced roughly 1.54 billion gallons of ice cream and frozen desserts. Nearly all of the U.S. ice cream/frozen dessert manufacturers have been in business for over 50 years, and the ice cream industry contributes about $39 billion to the American economy each year.

People in the Great Lakes region tend to buy the most ice cream, and the average American consumes more than 23 pounds of ice cream each year. That is too much ice cream, people. Dairy can wreak havoc on your bones and can induce adverse skin irritations. Maybe National Ice Cream Day should be a wake up call, as opposed to a celebration. You don’t have to consume dairy and sugar because you can make your own ice cream with better, non-toxic ingredients. Try some of our recipes below.
