Ice Cream Sundae

View large

Pistachio, mint and vanilla gelato covered in fresh whipped cream, drizzled with chocolate sauce, topped with diced hazelnuts and whole macademia nuts, finished with a wafer slice.

 

Gelato is Italian ice cream made from milk, sugar and other flavours.. The ingredients are frozen while stirring to break up ice crystals as they form. Like high end ice cream, gelato generally has less than 35% air - resulting in a dense and extremely flavourful product.

 

God Almighty says in the Quran, "O you who believe, fasting has been prescribed for you so that you may learn self control" -Self-control is centered on the ability of a person to exert their will over the inhibitions of their body or self.

 

In the 1960s, Walter Mischel tested four year old children for self control in "The Marshmallow Test": the children were each given a marshmallow and told that they can eat it anytime they want, but if they waited 15 minutes, they would receive another marshmallow. Follow up studies showed that the results correlated well with these children's success levels in later life.

 

So it seems, that God Almighty wishes us to be successful by helping us develop our self control :)
