Chocolate, berries, stone fruits, nuts — what’s your perfect scoop? These ice cream recipes feature all of the classic flavors (and a few unexpected ones)! Pick your favorites to make at home, and you’ll be rewarded with your sweetest frozen treats yet.
|Strawberry-Crème Fraîche Ice Cream|
Crème fraîche ice cream has a delicate tang and ultra fresh flavor — it’s a terrific companion to spring berries.
|Salted Caramel Ice Cream|
When sugar caramelizes, its flavor becomes less sweet and more complex, forming a rich base for ice cream. A sprinkle of salt gives it even more impact.
|Very Berry Ice Cream Cake|
This summer dessert is so impressive that no one will guess how easy it is to make—especially if you use pound cake purchased at your favorite bakery or grocery store.
|Pistachio Ice Cream with Shaved Chocolate|
Unlike the artificial green stuff you see in stores, this pistachio ice cream is the real deal: a pale yellow cream rich with the toasted nuts for which Sicily is famous. The added chocolate makes it irresistible.
|Salted Peanut Butter and Jelly Ice Cream|
Savory and sweet collide in this adult variation on a childhood classic. Top with chopped peanuts for extra crunch.
|Ice Cream Sandwiches|
Ice cream sandwiches will make everyone smile! Smash whatever kind of ice cream you like between the chocolate wafers: strawberry, vanilla, coffee or mint chip.
|Mixed Berry Ice Cream|
Showcasing summer’s fresh berries, this ice cream can be made using an unfrozen vanilla ice cream base. It’s super simple and even more satisfying.
|The Best Vanilla Ice Cream|
Here’s our go-to recipe for the ultimate vanilla ice cream. Note that this recipe requires an extra day for the custard to chill — it’s worth the wait.
Two desserts rolled into one, this sundae is over the top. Graham crackers, chocolate ice cream, and marshmallow topping mimic the campfire classic, but the additions of hot fudge sauce, whipped cream and toasted nuts amp up the hot, gooey mess.
|Olive Oil Ice Cream with Meyer Lemon Zest|
Plenty of egg yolks and a deep golden olive oil tint this ice cream a beautiful pale yellow. The custard has a sweet, bright taste and a delicate perfume, and silky olive oil lends its unique flavor and luxurious mouthfeel.
|Apricot and Praline Ice Cream|
Apricots are abundant in June and July, the perfect time to savor this ice cream. Scoop it into ice cream cones for a nostalgic treat.
|Cookies and Cream-Mocha Chip Ice Cream Cake|
This sophisticated play on a childhood favorite is sure to please both kids and adults, and it makes a dramatic presentation for a summer get-together.
|Sweet Corn Ice Cream with Blackberry Sauce|
|Boozy Guinness Ice Cream Floats|
Who says ice cream floats are only for kids? A scoop of coffee ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate turn rich, dark Irish stout beer into a celebratory dessert drink for adults.
|Raspberry Swirl Ice Cream|
Use our vanilla ice cream starter to create this sweet treat, swirled with fresh raspberry puree. It’s a great way to give summer berries the attention they deserve.
|Peach Ice Cream|
Capture the essence of fragrant peaches in this easy-to-prepare ice cream, a simple, sweet finale to a summer meal.
