It’s National Ice Cream Month.
What a beautiful thing to celebrate. In honor of this and to kick off my July 4th week properly, I purchased a delightful vanilla soy ice cream that I plan to share with my son.
Last year, we visited some excellent ice cream blogs. Here are a few more.
The Coolhaus Blog features architecturally-inspired gourmet ice cream.
I love the layers on this blog. First, “cool house” refers to the combination of cookies with ice cream, forming ice cream sandwiches.
Coolhaus co-founders Natasha Case and Freya Estreller began with baking cookies and making ice cream.
“With mutual backgrounds in the design and real estate fields, they began naming their ice cream sandwiches after architects and architectural movements that inspired them – and eventually decided to take their newfound passion (dubbed “Farchitecture,” or Food + Architecture) to their hometown streets in Los Angeles,” the blog says.
Today, this duo has an ice cream truck and cart fleet of 10, including several in Southern California and a couple in NY.
Let’s get to their delicious posts. I was intrigued by the blue ice cream sandwich at the top of The #DeltaAmexPerks Coolhaus Ice Cream Tour. I also enjoyed Dairy Trends for 2016 – World Dairy Innovation Awards, Recipe: Balsamic Fig & Marscarpone, and Summer Favorites.

The Ice Cream Informant provides rankings, reviews by ice cream brand, reader reviews, and freezer finds.
Because of this blog, it appears that I now have to track down Mad Minis, based on its Review: Mad Minis – Blondie, Black Raspberry, Chocolate, and Vanilla.
This blog made me hungry.
Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream blog chronicles the work and flavors of ice cream icon Jeni’s.
“We are absolutely devoted to making better ice creams and bringing people together,” the blog says. “It’s what gets us out of bed in the morning and keeps us up late at night.”
The person behind the corporation is Jeni Britton Bauer, who’s been making ice cream professionally for two decades. Bauer founded Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams in 2002.

If The Spoon Fits is the ice cream blog of Lindsay.
“Ice cream is my happy place, my infinite childhood,” she writes. “I’d like for this blog to feel that way, too. So, go ahead. Get that extra scoop. Eat it. Love it. Take a bath in it. Be a kid again. Just don’t skimp; because if the spoon fits, there’s not enough ice cream in your bowl!”
This site immediately caught my attention with Triple Blueberry Ice Cream Floats. Wow.
I also thoroughly enjoyed Wine and Gold Sorbet, Caramelized White Chocolate Ice Cream with Toasted Almonds, and Matcha Ice Cream with Black Salt Chocolate Chunks.
