My love of something frozen and creamy started at an early age with afternoon visits from Mr. Jolly and his ice cream truck. My love grew stronger when I would visit my Aunt and Uncle who lived near Wrightsville Beach NC every summer. Not only were the beach visits glorious but Uncle "Doots" owned Dairy Queens! Staying up late, swimming and all the ice cream I could eat - every day was heaven. I still love creamy frozen treats and am always thinking of ways to make grown up versions of them. Using 1% milk makes me think I can enjoy one every day! Sometimes I dunk it in a tiny splash of Amaretto ~ This is so easy and so delicious I make variations on them all year round. —Kate's Kitchen
