Peach Sweet Tea Ice Cream
I received the wife of the weekend award with this one! Half of the ice cream was eaten before it even hit the bowl so I knew it was a winner. The herbal notes of the mint are subtle while the tea and peach coming running full force at your tastebuds. I hope you enjoy this summer treat on your front porch, back yard, or even sitting on your couch while you Netflix and chill! Let me know what you think and I hope you love it 🙂
