Know how every once in a while you taste something that's so insanely satiating that a single spoonful pretty much satisfies? Nah, neither do we. Pass this ice cream, please.
Brandied Cherry Ice Cream
Rose Levy Beranbaum's cherry ice cream is a smooth, sophisticated, boozy delight and proves that ice cream isn't just for kids.
Roasted Banana Ice Cream
Quite possibly the best banana recipe ever, this home-churned ice cream jumbles caramelized bananas and bittersweet chocolate with all the usual ingredients.
Strawberry Ice Cream
The tempered sweetness of this spectacular strawberry ice cream relies on in-season strawberries rather than obscene amounts of sugar for flavor.

Devil’s Food Cake Chocolate Ice Cream
Sultry as a summer night. That’s what we thought when we experienced this seductively smooth, devilishly dark chocolate ice cream that's almost naughtily intense.
Sweet Cream Ice Cream
No vanilla. No eggs. Just cream, sugar, cream cheese, and plain and simple goodness like you've never imagined. A sweet cream sensation.
Chocolate Hazelnut Gelato
We're food folks, not number crunchers. But perhaps our most favorite equation ever? Chocolate + hazelnuts = gianduia.

Butter Pecan Ice Cream
Not your typical butter pecan ice cream. Not at all.
Milkiest Chocolate Ice Cream
Milkiest? Chocolatiest? We think so. This creamy, dreamy little concoction is smoooooothness on a spoon.

Lusciously dark, almost bitter caramel collides with sweet cream and sea salt. Definitely ice cream for adults. Finally, something you don't have to share with the kids.
Peaches and Cream Ice Cream
Confession. This isn't exactly ice cream. Yet it's not frozen yogurt, either. It falls somewhere blissfully in between with its not-too-sweet creaminess. And no ice cream maker required.
An ethereally creamy, subtly sweet, wickedly pistachio-y gelato that derives its pure flavor from nothing more than the essentials.

Blackberry Ice Cream
So exquisite it makes folks say "This recipe is a 10." and "Perfect." and "Gloriously smooth." and "Very rich." Blackberries, lime, and cream, and not much else.
Black Sesame Ice Cream
Despite being vegan and dairy-free (it's made with coconut milk), this black sesame ice cream is still exceptionally creamy and boasts a beguiling taste. You sorta gotta experience it for yourself.
Vegan Mango Ice Cream
