It's National Ice Cream Month! Here Are 15 Goods and Recipes to Help You Celebrate

Some may say the best time to eat ice cream is after a breakup, but I say the best time to eat ice cream is all the time...and extra during July, which is National Ice Cream Month! It's is the ultimate summer treat, and frankly, I can't get enough. As I type this, there are four unfinished Ben & Jerry's pints sitting in my freezer and I'm already plotting where I can buy more on my way home.

If you are ice cream–obsessive like me, then, boy, do I have the roundup for you. I found awesome ice cream recipes, DIYs, and even an ice cream pillow to satisfy any craving. Delicious!
