15 Weird Ice Cream Flavors That Are Anything But Vanilla
If you grew up with your parents telling you that you can’t have ice cream for dinner, they probably never thought about it including avocado, balsamic vinegar or goat cheese. There has been a true revolution in the world of ice cream, and the only rule is that there are no rules. We’ve collected a variety of salty, sweet and just plain unusual combinations that will inspire you to bring the ice cream maker out of storage immediately. Get ready, ’cause these 15 sweet and savory desserts are going to blow your ice-cream-lovin’ mind.
1. Strawberry Balsamic Rosemary Ice Cream: Balsamic + Rosemary is already a winning combo. Add strawberries to that and you’ll be pleasantly surprised at just how delicious it actually is. (via Brit + Co)

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
