Ice Cream Recipes

Churn up these ice-cold, creamy treats to cool you off on a hot summer’s day. 

Ahhh, I love ice-cream…ESPECIALLY homemade ice cream!!!  I saw this on the Southern Living website and just HAD to share!!!!  

Here are their 14 of their BEST Ice Cream Recipes:
This summertime treat is packed with two Southern favorites: refreshing peaches and nutty pecans. The sweet peaches add great texture, and the pecans pack in a crunchy bite.

Velvety ice cream meets the sweet, juiciness of strawberries in this frozen summer treat. Serve it in ice cream sundae glasses for a parlor-perfect presentation.

No fancy flavors can beat the ultimate creamy classic: vanilla ice cream. Eat it pure and simple, mix in chocolate or fruit, or add your favorite toppings.
Creamy buttermilk pairs perfectly with juicy summer raspberries in this fruit-filled sherbet.

 The tropical flair of this ice cream will make you think you’re in the islands. Readers tell us the flavors are more intense and better tasting the next day—if it lasts that long. Use ripe bananas for the boldest flavor.

Zesty lime makes this a refreshing citrus treat. Garnish with fresh mint springs and thinly sliced lime wedges.

Mix coffee and semisweet chocolate into this dense ice cream. Add sliced almonds if you want to break up the richness of the mocha. Serve Pirouette Rolled Wafers as a cookie complement.

Praline lovers: This is your ice cream. Packed with crunchy bits of a homemade caramel crisp, this cream mixture has a caramel flavor and caramel topping.

You don’t have to use an ice-cream maker for this flavorful dessert. It only calls for five simple ingredients, a standard freezer, and a blender.

Summer strawberries and raspberries are too succulent not to mix into your pure vanilla cream. Serve with fresh berries in a waffle bowl.

 Chocolate milk and chocolate syrup create the chocolaty taste you’ve loved since you were a kid. Almonds add a nutty crunch to this super-simple recipe.

Making refreshing sorbet takes just fruit, water, and sugar. Use the simple syrup base to make the flavor combination of your choice— grapefruit, pineapple, lemon, orange, strawberry, cantaloupe, cherry, or raspberry.

Your family will ask for this creamy ice cream over and over again. Best of all, the 6-ingredient mixture requires no cooking, just stirring.

Sweet frozen blackberry wine is perfectly paired with summer berries at the end of a summer meal.

Doesn’t it make your mouth water just looking at these delicious recipes???  Which ones are you favorites????
