My boys and I had a lot of fun this summer making different ice creams, gelatos, and frozen yogurts in our ice cream maker. They get to take turns choosing what we make each time. The latest concoction was a suggestion from my little one – Cherry Frozen Yogurt. While making it, I added the almond extract – but didn’t tell them because I wasn’t sure if they would shun it because it was different than the original request. I don’t even think they noticed! We served this last weekend after having dinner with some friends, there were 6 kids here – they all loved it. One of them even licked the bowl clean!
