Latin-inspired ice cream ideas

Any time of the year is perfect for Latin inspired ice cream ideas, but mostly when you live in Phoenix, it’s the middle of July AND it’s National Ice Cream Day!

Yup, that’s my situation these days.

It ain’t pretty over here in the land of cacti and chili peppers. I’ve burned my fingertips just trying to open my metal mailbox. My favorite silver heart hoop earrings singed my tender neckline while I drove home in the afternoon. And my personal favorite – I left a bag of craft supplies in the car only to find all the glue sticks melted into one giant blob.

So how do I process all this heat-related trauma? By celebrating National Ice Cream Day! I thought I’d share the inspiration and add a bit of cultura to the mix. That way if you feel so inclined, you can indulge in one of these delicious concoctions!

Latin inspired ice cream ideas for the win!
