Chocolate Chai Latte Ice Cream

Can you believe it’s already August? I mean really, where has this year gone and what have I been doing? Summer is fading fast as fall is already in the air with the long shadows of the day and cooler temperatures at night. Leaves are falling and I’m still trying to get rid of last years! Raking and burning leaves is a never-ending cycle here at my house since I’m backed up to the woods and surrounded by trees.

Here I am rambling about fall and raking leaves, yet I’m here to share an ice cream recipe with y’all. Kind of ironic, wouldn’t ya say?

Actually this is the perfect type of recipe for August, as its still summertime and the days are still hot making you crave something cold and creamy to cool you down.

Yet the flavor of this ice cream reminds me of the fall, with exotic blends of spices that include black pepper, ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, and star anise all in a blend of cocoa. A delicious infusion of flavors that are rich with spices.

Flavors that remind you of other fall favorites like pumpkin pie and apple cider, which makes this ice cream perfect for the long, dog days of summer as the seasons change into fall.

So ya best hurry up and go make yourself some of this soon because before ya know it, it will be Christmas!
