This July marks National Ice Cream Month and many will be celebrating National Ice Cream Day here soon, which happens to be celebrated on the third Sunday in July. That is why this week was the perfect time to talk about our topic of the week – Healthy Ice Cream Alternatives in my Health in a Handbasket segment on Good Day Rochester.
