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.
No vanilla. No eggs. Just cream, sugar, cream cheese, and plain and simple goodness like you've never imagined. A sweet cream sensation.
We're food folks, not number crunchers. But perhaps our most favorite equation ever? Chocolate + hazelnuts = gianduia.
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.
A classic, perfected. (Yes, we know, you've been promised this before by others. But we mean it.)
Not too dark. Not too sweet. Simply bittersweet. Luxuriantly so. So long, chocolate ice creams of your childhood.
Not your typical butter pecan ice cream. Not at all.
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.
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.
Ice cream bars are a very, very personal thing. Which is exactly why we love this approach, which essentially allows you to make whatever custom combination of store-bought ice cream, chocolate, and coatings you fancy.
An ethereally creamy, subtly sweet, wickedly pistachio-y gelato that derives its pure flavor from nothing more than the essentials.
Strawberry Ice Cream12/31
The tempered sweetness of this spectacular strawberry ice cream relies on in-season strawberries rather than obscene amounts of sugar for flavor. This is no ordinary ice cream.
All natural. No artificial colors or flavors. Family friendly. Adult approved. And as delicious as any mint chip ice cream we've ever tasted.
This little taste of heaven is easy as can be. Smooth, rich, creamy ice cream that tastes just like cheesecake. No ice cream maker required.
Ben & Jerry, we love you and we always will. But we make our own Super Fudge Chunk now that's even more riddled with chunks of all sorts of super fudge-y spectacularness.
Vanilla Ice Cream16/31
Vanilla ice cream. Just sorta defines summer, yes? And what better way can you imagine spending a lazy afternoon than making and devouring this childhood classic?
Milkiest? Chocolatiest? We think so. This creamy, dreamy little concoction is smoooooothness on a spoon.
What to do with those lackluster, out-of-season berries that you couldn't resist buying at the store.
Quite possibly the best banana recipe ever, this home-churned ice cream jumbles caramelized bananas and bittersweet chocolate with all the usual ingredients.
Folks are saying this is the simplest ice cream recipe they've ever made. They're also calling it the most satisfying.
Blackberry Ice Cream21/31
So exquisite it's making folks say "This recipe is a 10." and "Perfect." and "Gloriously smooth." and "Very rich." and "The looks on my family’s faces said it all. Translation goes something like, 'Oh my god, what is this?!'"
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.
Creamy. Indulgent. Easy. Healthy. Just three ingredients. And no ice cream maker required. (What are you waiting for?!)
Made with just coconut milk, bananas, peanut butter, cacao, and honey. 5 ingredients that are healthy, easy, and ridiculously like ice cream when prepared in this manner.
Pumpkin Ice Cream25/31
The pumpkin spice everything craze tends to leave us underwhelmed about pumpkin spice anything. Not this.
Brownie Ice Cream26/31
Chances are you've been smashing brownies into ice cream since you were a kid. But in case you need a recipe, this simple approach certainly does the trick.
Green Tea Ice Cream27/31
Get a load of this stunning scoop! The silken ice cream has a vibrant sea-green shade that's as distinctive as its nuanced and vaguely tea-y taste.
This unexpected yet enticing melding of sweet and smoky makes for a sassy summer dessert you'll be craving year round.
Blueberry Ice Cream29/31
Seeing as blueberries are so darn good for you, one could argue that this rich, creamy ice cream ought to be a summer staple.
This isn't a recipe. It's a reminder. You know, of summer and laziness and the magic of ice cream sandwiches for dinner.
For vanilla ice cream purists, nothing competes with a recipe that relies on just the essentials: milk, sugar, vanilla bean, eggs, and cream.
