Most of the time, when people think of the September holidays, they think of Labor Day, but did you know that there is an even yummier holiday in September? Ortiz Ice Cream wants to remind you that September 22 is National Ice Cream Cone Day! Whether you have a long day at school or work, we recommend enjoying some ice cream treats to keep you cool!
First, making fruit-based Popsicle treats is a great way to bring on the celebrations of the day. Making these with the whole family is a wonderful way to have some family fun and enjoy some time together. Fruit popsicles are quick and easy to make. We are positive that you will love both making and enjoying these mouthwatering-icy treats! There are a few quick steps for this. First, you choose your favorite fruits—with each family member deciding on what fruit to make their choice of popsicles! You select one fruit and chop it up into small chunks and put them in a blender with sugar and water. You blend the fruit into a liquid and pour it into popsicle molds. After a few hours in the freezer, they’ll be ready to enjoy the whole day! Yay!
Next on our list are the incredible Mexican sweet bread—Conchas! Conchas are traditional Pan Dulce (Mexican sweet bread) that are available at local Mexican panaderias. They are soft and sweet Mexican bread with different colored toppings. They can often be enjoyed at any part of the day, but we recommend enjoying them with a tall glass of milk or coffee. To keep cool, we also recommend enjoying an ice cream Concha sandwich! The process is quick and easy. You cut the concha in half and scoop out your favorite choice of ice cream onto the bottom bun. Then you place the top part of the concha on top of the ice cream (we expect you put a mountain of ice cream!) to complete the concha ice cream sandwich! Yum!
We saved the best for last—ice cream cones! After all, September 22 is National Ice Cream Cone Day. Whether you decide to celebrate on Wednesday or wait until the weekend, making your own or buying from your local Ice Cream maker, we are sure you will enjoy your favorite ice cream treats. We recommend taking a quick grocery trip to pick up your favorite ice cream flavors, ice cream cones, and lots of fun toppings! For those of you that like to celebrate big and with family and friends, Ortiz Ice Cream wants to remind you that they provide delicious ice cream catering right to your door.
