It feels like this entire summer everyone has been on vacation without me. I’ll open up (enter: all social media networks) and there they are: picture after picture of people drinking pina coladas by the beach, frolicking in the sand, on their hipster rooftops in Brooklyn wearing jorts–it’s not fair! It’s been depressing. But now, I’m the one on vacation (albeit a short one, but I’ll take what I can get).

I’m currently in Palm Springs chilling in the sun/mostly the air-conditioning. It’s 110 degrees. Yes, one one zero. What’s odd is that I kinda like it. The dry California, dessert air is nice–it feels very spa-like and it helps that I’m doing nothing but laying on the couch, drinking a cocktail and reading a summer book.

I’ve been wanting to make a boozy milkshake for like FOR-EVER-R. Also, fun fact: I wrote this post a few days ago, which means I was lying then, but am totally telling you the truth now. Confusing? I understand. Boozy milkshake. If you read this blog regularly, you know that I love my coffee. There’s nothing better, in my humble opinion, than coffee ice cream. Combine coffee ice cream with a little milk, dark rum, some more coffee and put it in a blender? Heaven. Salty chocolate covered coffee beans is totally a thing I did too.

Peach Swirl Buttermilk Ice Cream

Desserts

My love for ice cream began very early; some doctors would probably argue that it was too early. (See last picture in this Father’s Day post for proof.) I believe I first tried ice cream when I was still on the bottle, probably around 3 months old. My dad gave me a taste because, well, I didn’t need any teeth – no teeth required! – to enjoy his favorite evening, indulgence. And to this day, my dad eats a bowl of ice cream every. single. night. One of the best birthday presents I ever gave him was an ice cream maker. He became obsessed, mastering a ton of ice cream recipes, but mainly perfecting his vanilla bean recipe. Simple things are tough!

This ice cream right here is tart, sweet with bright coral swirls. Hello! I realize I’m repeating myself with this swirl business. Everything lately is getting a swirl. Also, everything that’s sweet is also salty. I can’t help it! I’m a woman obsessed.

This post is brought to you in collaboration with Real California Milk. I had no idea until they sent me a fun fact sheet, but the state of California produces more ice cream than any other state in the United States, which basically means California is the best.
