Ice cream is enjoyed just as it is. It can also be used to make milk shakes, sodas, sundaes, floats, and other classic soda-fountain combinations. Scoops of ice cream still make an attractive dessert. It can be paired with fresh fruit or nuts, or with French or Italian desserts for a sophisticated presentation. If you have a hard time resisting ice cream, it’s probably best to purchase this rich dessert in small portions.
