I scream, you scream, we all scream for!
If there’s one thing that can make even the hottest summer day bearable then it’s a big bowl of this sweet frozen dessert. I don’t know what it is about ice-cream that makes me so happy. It could be its rich texture, its sweetness or the fact that even though it gives me a brain freeze, I can never have enough!
Ice cream is perfect just the way it is, but when combined with certain foods it reaches another level of greatness. I’m talking about:
1. Chewy fudge brownies
The warm and hard texture of the brownie goes perfectly with the creaminess of the cold ice cream. Yummers!

2. Fruits like mango, strawberry and kiwi
Nothing says love like a beautiful ice cream fruit sundae topped off with fresh fruits like mangoes, strawberries and maybe even the exotic kiwi. Sign me up for that!
By adding a scoop or two to piping hot jalebis, you are instantly cooling the dessert and adding the right kind of sweetness without making it heavy.

4. Gulab Jamun
I really can’t pinpoint any one reason why you should try this but trust me, once you do, you will never look at plain Gulab Jamun the same way.

5. Cold coffee
Adding a little ice cream while blending your cold coffee will not only make it a little sweeter but it’ll also give it a thick and rich texture. Be it peanut butter, caramel, butterscotch or chocolate, everything works well with cold coffee.

6. Freshly baked cookies
Warm and crusty cookies with ice cream is a match made in heaven. And if the cookie has a gooey center, then teaming it with ice cream is like hitting the jackpot.
7. Hot chocolate sauce
Ice cream by itself is awesome but when you add a generous helping of hot chocolate sauce, it just gets better. Enough said.

9. Dry fruits/nuts
Don’t like your dry fruits? That’s alright. You can always add them to your bowl of ice cream.
