Have you made homemade ice cream before?
I’ll admit that I haven’t, but I’ve seen quite a few homemade ice cream recipes lately that make me want to run right out and get an ice cream maker!
If you’re looking a fun, healthy and delicious dessert this summer, here are 10 ice cream recipes that make my mouth water:
1. Homemade Ice Cream…in a Bag
All the fun of homemade ice cream without special equipment or extra work, you can make ice cream in just a couple of minutes with this simple and easy recipe for ice cream in a bag. It’s a great summertime activity for kids as well.
2. Maple Walnut Cookie Dough Ice Cream
Aimee from Under the High Chair shared this maple walnut cookie dough ice cream recipe back in May, and I can almost taste it as I read her descriptions and look at her pictures.
3. Strawberry Ice Cream
I’m with Michelle at Brown-Eyed Baker on this one. Strawberry ice cream has never really appealed to me, but her pictures look divine, with real chunks of strawberry throughout the ice cream, and I’d like to give it another chance with this recipe!
4. Lemon Pie Ice Cream
I bet this lemon pie ice cream from Christie’s Corner is refreshing on a hot summer day!
5. Blueberry Ice Cream
This blueberry ice cream recipe from The Dinner Files can be adapted for a variety of add-ins, but my 4-year-old has been begging me for blueberry ice cream lately (honestly, I didn’t even know such a thing existed!), so she will be so excited to see this recipe!
6. Coffee Ice Cream with Chocolate-Covered Espresso Beans
Mmm, I love coffee anything, and this coffee ice cream from Day Dreamer Desserts sounds delicious! I love the addition of the chocolate-covered espresso beans!
7. Chocolate Oreo Ice Cream
My favorite ice cream flavor has always been cookies and cream, and who could resist this delicious chocolate oreo ice cream from Catie’s Cakes and Cookies?
8. Cake Batter Ice Cream
My husband and I have a bit of an obsession with cake batter ice cream lately. It’s cold and delicious, with all of the deliciousness of cake batter and ice cream rolled up into one. I can’t wait to try this recipe from Annie’s Eats for myself!
9. Pistachio Ice Cream
If pistachio ice cream is more your thing, be sure to check out this recipe that Veronica shared at Divine Caroline, which she says keeps the nuts from getting too soft in the ice cream.
10. Vanilla Bean Gelato
Simple yet delicious. Shaina at Food for My Family shares her vanilla bean gelato recipe, which she says is perfect for root beer floats. Yum!
The good news is if you’re willing to invest a little time, you don’t even need any special gadgets or tools to make delicious, flavorful ice cream right at home.
