When it’s hot out, nothing is more refreshing (or better tasting!) than a scoop (or two) of homemade ice cream or icy sorbet. We also love making ice pops (and kids do too!). Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite recipes guaranteed to cool you down in the summer heat.
|Classic Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
The quintessential summer treat made with vanilla beans that have been steeped in custard to release their maximum flavor.
| Fresh Peach Ice Cream
The essence of summer in a bowl. Use farm-fresh, ripe peaches to create this creamy treat.
|Dulche de Leche Ice Cream
This heavenly ice cream is made by slowly reducing fresh milk and sugar until the mixture thickens into a luscious caramel.
|Dark Chocolate Gelato
An extra rich and creamy dessert with the intense flavor of deep, dark chocolate.
This pretty, sweet dessert is a lighter dessert and features the bright taste of fresh plums.
|Mango and Pineapple Sorbet
Bold tropical flavors shine in this light, refreshing dessert.
With a gorgeous berry hue and a sweet yet slightly tart flavor, this sorbet is the perfect end to a midsummer meal.
|Honeydew-Lime Ice Pops
Delightfully refreshing and fun to make—freeze in ice pop molds, or small paper cups with sticks.
|Frozen Fruit-and-Yogurt Pops
You can mix and match your favorite flavors to create these cooling pops. Here, we use strawberry yogurt plus orange and raspberry juices.
