August 21st is National Spumoni Day! This Italian dessert is made from layers of ice cream, whipped cream, candied fruit, and nuts. It is typically made with three layers of flavor: chocolate, pistachio, and cherry. Each layer of ice cream is separated by a layer of fruits and nuts.
Spumoni differs from ice cream in that it should always be sliced, never scooped. First made in Naples, it is now popular in places with large Italian immigrant populations, such as the U.S. and Argentina. So celebrate with a nice cool slice (or five) today!
