Ice Cream Recipes Round-Up for National Ice Cream Day


Today is National Ice Cream Day.  I normally miss out on most of the national food day, except this time.   What can I say, I’m crazy about ice cream and the craziness is year round in my house.  Today, I made another batch of Vanilla Bean Ice Cream to celebrate the occasion.  Please click here for the recipe.  It’s so versatile and you can simply add any other ingredient you like to please your palates with this basic recipe.

Another ice cream flavor that’s quite popular in my house is the French Roasted Coffee Ice cream.  Recipe here.  You definitely don’t want to miss out on this recipe if you’re a coffee lover.  I can definitely have a scoop to replace my morning cup of coffee.

As for my kids, they adore this the Valrhona Dark Chocolate Ice Cream.  Please click here for the recipe and pictorial.  These are so decadent and they aren't called favorites for no reason!  This will satisfy your biggest chocolate craves with just a small scoop, I promise.

For a healthier flair, yet still decadent, check out this Coconut Ice Cream with Toasted Coconut.  It’s so rich and creamy that you won’t believe it’s vegan friendly.

I know the strawberry is still in season and there’s absolutely no reason for missing out on this refreshing and velvety Roasted Strawberry Ice Cream.  Each bite is strawberry lover’s heaven.  Click here for  recipe and pictorial.

My latest love would be this Matcha Ice Cream.  Rich and strong and that earthy Matcha flavor is undeniable.  You've got to give this a try if you love Matcha.  Please click here for the recipe and pictorial.

Last but not least, these fun Ice Cream Bon Bon!  They are simply too adorable to pass up!  Best of all, you can make them with your favorite ice cream flavor and different kind of chocolate for coating.  Please click here for the recipe and pictorial.

  7. I understand now why I craved ice-cream all day yesterday ;-) It's so hot I feel like having ice-cream or sorbet INSTEAD of every single meal. I don't complain too much though. I prefer this than cold and rain. All your ice-creams look fabulous. My small freezer is so packed constantly, it doesn't allow me to make ice-cream alas, but I hope I will buy a new one and then your recipes will be a great inspiration.

    1. I know...my freezer is constantly full too! And my sweet Mother-in-law got us a new fridge when we move to this house so we kept the old fridge....but still, both freezers are still constantly full and I don't know how I did that (I'm sure my hubby keeps wondering about that too!) hahahaha
