must agree nz ice-cream IS bloody good! we love the mint cookie, the new coconut chocolate and my absolute favorite : french vanilla ! we're on a health kick atm, but still sneak some ice-cream. see there's a passionfruit one out now too...hmmm

NO timtam's those are guaranteed to get you both to the dentist and 'heavier'.

This week we have just brought our 2ND tub of tip top .... maybe because it has been so hot, or maybe because of the home made Cape Velvet in the fridge?

I am with SusanJ.... KAPITI RULES .... I love the triple chocolate  :smitten: :smitten:

For the healthier option, try sorbets made with real fruit - we make our own as well.  It takes very little sugar too! NOTHING better than icey blueberry sorbet on a hot summers day!  :smitten: :smitten:

we're doing smoothies for summer, a good morning tea/quick breakfast. you can use frozen berries (no need for ice) so many options really. blueberry banana - yum

I agree with SusanJ - nothing beats homemade icecream.
