It’s Father’s Day and there is nothing better on a hot day like today than ice cream, but not any kind, some homemade Nutella ice cream. Absolutely refreshing, but also giving dad what he wants on his day: Nutella ice cream! I mean, I don’t know anyone that doesn’t love Nutella or ice cream. Put those two things together and you have gotten your dad the greatest Father’s Day gift he could ever ask for.
Growing up I loved ice cream, but would always have the worst stomach ache every time I ate it. Come to find out I am lactose intolerant and that put a huge damper on my ice cream eating.
Fast forward to being an adult, I went to a friend’s house for family dinner one Sunday and their parents had homemade ice cream that I had to try. Since then I was hooked. I didn’t care what it did to my stomach, I was going to eat homemade ice cream even if it killed me.
Then for our wedding we got an ice cream maker, but we all know that you never use your wedding gifts until about 2 years into your marriage. Well good thing we have passed that mile stone. I had some Nutella in the cupboard and thought, how good would it be to have homemade Nutella ice cream? Turns out, it’s so good!
So pull out the ice cream maker, grab your jar of Nutella that everyone should have in their cupboards and make your dad some memories with homemade Nutella ice cream. He’ll love you forever.
