June’s fruity #BSFIC round up will be a little late, as I’m currently away on holiday. As soon as I’m back, I’ll get the round up finished and posted.
In the mean time, I’m throwing this month’s Bloggers Scream For Ice Cream challenge wide open by asking you to create an ice cream inspired by a holiday memory.
Do you remember your first trip abroad and the unfamiliar thrill of each new ingredient or dish? Where did you go on your last holiday and what tastes have stuck in your mind? Or are you more of a home body, enjoying your leisure time nearer to home? Whether you think back to those long summer breaks from school as a child or what you did during your most break at home or away, it’s the flavour memories of your holiday that I’m most interested in.
Please don’t feel constrained to recreate a specific ice cream treat – the holiday memory theme is merely a trigger for your imagination.
Downed more than your fair share of Caipirinhas in Brazil, Kir Royales in France, Mojitos in Cuba, Negronis in Italy, Pisco Sours in Peru, Sangrias in Spain? Maybe the flavours would work for a grown up ice lolly or granita?

Intrigued by an exotic ingredient such as Chinese glutinous black rice, red bean paste or Sichuan peppercorns (check out this ice cream I made last year), Indian cardamom, cassia bark or jackfruit, Japanese miso, matcha or sakura (cherry blossoms), Lebanese carob molasses, Mexican chillies including ancho, guajillo and poblano, Northern European juniper berries, lingonberries, sea buckthorn or cloudberries, Persian sumac or saffron, Peruvian purple potatoes, Syrian verjuice, Thai galangal or West African melegueta pepper aka grains of paradise? How might you incorporate it into a frozen dessert?

Perhaps you still can’t stop thinking about an indulgent dessert that could translate well into a frozen version?
And of course, you are always welcome to recreate an actual ice cream, gelato, sorbet, granita, shaved ice, slushy or other icy treat that reminds you of a cherished holiday – there’s no obligation to create something exotic or unusual!
