Paleo? Vegan? Gluten Free? Lactose free? Sugar Free? No problem!

HealthyI scream! You scream! We all scream for… ICE CREAM! Who doesn’t love the stuff? Last year we ate A LOT of ice cream on February 18th, but had a few folks who wanted to participate but couldn’t eat it due to dietary restrictions. This event is really all about supporting some pretty incredible kids with cancer, and not about the ice cream (even though it’s pretty awesome too)- so feel free to use substitutions as you support the fighting, remember the resting and party on with the survivors. We did find some pretty great ice cream alternatives though for anyone looking for some creative “ice cream” eating ideas that are outside the box. The box is over rated anyways. If you have a blender or food processor this post is for you!
