So invite some friends over to your apartment one weekend soon to make ice cream!

 

Ice Cream Recipes

Extreme Chocolate Ice Cream from WonkyWonderful

This easy extreme chocolate ice cream can be made without an ice cream maker. Use heavy whipping cream, sweetened condensed milk, baking cocoa, brownie chunks, and semisweet chocolate chips to make it. Pair this decadent ice cream with your favorite waffle cone and a generous drizzle of caramel sauce.

 

No Churn Vanilla Ice Cream

This ice cream is easy to make and you don’t even need an ice cream machine! This recipe comes from The Roasted Root. You’ll need condensed milk, heavy cream, and vanilla extract. We’d suggested adding some chocolate chips to the mixture as well. Blend the ingredients together, pour into a container, and freeze for 5 hours or until it’s solid. It’s the perfect sweet and creamy treat for a hot July day.

 

Easy, Eggless Strawberry Ice Cream from Allrecipes.com

Strawberry ice cream is a summer classic, and we love this recipe from Allrecipes.com. It’s a blend of whole milk, heavy cream, sugar, salt, vanilla, and of course strawberries mixed together and frozen into creamy goodness. Yum!

 

Ice Cream Toppings

Lemon Curd

Add this to vanilla ice cream with blueberries. It’s also great for eating with scones, biscuits, and cakes.

 

Candied Pecans

It’s hard to eat just one of these little treats, or even just a hand-full. Add them to ice cream, and it brings a whole new flavor to the table.

 

Cherry-Pistachio Bark

Just make sure it’s crushed into bite-sized pieces. They go great with vanilla or chocolate ice cream.

 

Ice Cream Cones

If you’re doing homemade, go all out with these Homemade Ice Cream Cones from Spoon Fork Bacon. We think that you will love the sugary-sweet taste of this amazing treat. These cones pair perfectly with a fresh batch of strawberry or caramel ice cream.

 

And there you have it! Of course if you don’t want to mess with doing the homemade ice cream thing, you can head to your favorite West Warwick, RI ice cream or frozen yogurt shop and celebrate with ice cream without making your own.
