Princess Delaynie the Dinosaur isn’t your typical princess story. When Something happens to Delaynie which should make her miserable, she learns that happiness is a choice, despite your circumstances.
Since Delaynie isn’t your typical princess, I thought that it would be fun to make a dessert that was a little bit different, in a good way. Right now, it is over 100 degrees where I live, so my family and I are looking for things that help us cool off. Nothing screams cool treat more than ice cream, so we decided to make an easy, no churn ice cream recipe using the tasty overlooked fruit…cantalope.
I decided to use cantaloupe because it’s sweet, deep orange colored skin reminded me of Delaynie’s fun, curly orange hair. I also wanted to add a little ‘crunch’ into the mix, and since Delaynie enjoys eating cookies in the book, I threw in some golden Oreos to give it some yummy cookie creamy texture.
The result is a nice, light and fresh tasty ice cream that hits the spot on a hot summer day. So whip up a batch, serve it in a cone or a cup, and enjoy reading Princess Delaynie the Dinosaur.
