We Scream for Ice Cream

Betcha didn’t know some of the best ice cream-based desserts you’ll ever taste are made with Idaho® potatoes! The Idaho Potato Commission has a collection of ice cream recipes that are not only delicious, you can make them in your own kitchen in just a matter of minutes.

This shareable dessert also provides a huge potassium punch!
