Ice cream and birthday cake are the perfect pair! Why not mix them together and enjoy them in a cone covered in sprinkles? It is Ice Cream Month after all!
If it’s chocolate you’re craving, no worries, the same plan works for brownies too! In lieu of a la mode, blend brownie pieces into ice cream for the ultimate chocolate treat.
Add fresh fruit.
Take advantage of peak peach season and add slices to vanilla ice cream to enjoy summer by the scoop.
For a more decadent dessert, blend blackberries with dark chocolate ice cream.
And if you’re looking to transport yourself to the tropics, try this ice cream made with tangy key lime juice.
No-churn? No problem!
There’s no special machine required to make your own ice cream at home. All you need is a mixer, a metal loaf pan, and your freezer for recipes like this No-Churn Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream, sure to be a crowd favorite with adults and kids alike.
But if you’re looking for a more sophisticated scoop, try this no-churn toasted walnut ice cream topped with a salted caramel sauce.
