Just in time for ice cream social season, and always great for birthday parties and easy entertaining, these refreshing (and healthy!) recipes will satisfy your sweet tooth.
Strawberry-Chocolate Ice Cream
Chopped strawberries and cocoa nibs are a colorful addition to vanilla ice cream.
Chunky Peach Popsicles
Make sure to reserve a portion of the peaches as you puree the mixture so the pops will be packed with icy cold, chunky bits of fruit. For a grown-up twist, try adding 1 to 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh mint, lemon verbena or basil.
This incredibly refreshing icy dessert is made without using an ice cream maker.
Frozen Raspberry Pie
This creamy, luscious pie is made by combining a fluffy cooked meringue with a raspberry puree, then pouring the mixture into a chocolate-cookie crust.
This is a traditional Sicilian dessert for the hot weather. It starts with an icy espresso granita (“little grains” in Italian). The crystals are scraped up with a fork and served with a dollop of whipped cream.
Chocolate Malt Ice Cream Sandwiches
Nothing conjures up childhood nostalgia like these frozen sandwiches—but forget the jangling bells on the ice cream truck and make your own for an even better treat.
Cherry & White Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream
Chunks of white chocolate and cherries make homemade chocolate ice cream even more decadent.
