Did you know it takes about 12 pounds of milk to make 1 pound of ice cream? When you consider that the average American eats about 20 quarts of ice cream a year, that means a lot of milk is being put to good use! I have no doubt that I’m above average and consume more than 20 quarts each year. What can I say, I’m just doing my part! It might have something to do with my favorite ice cream dessert recipes like Chocolate Covered Strawberry Ice Cream Tart, Grasshopper Ice Cream Tart and Hot Fudge Ice Cream Pie. Told you I loved ice cream!
