I Scream

I think people sometimes think I'm kidding when I tell them it's one of Dan's life goals to have a deep freezer, mostly for the purpose of ice cream storage.  They would be wrong.

Somehow, it just seems right and good to make homemade ice creams during the summer.  Here are a few that I've really been wanting to try.  They deviate a bit from the standard fare but still look sweet (although not too much so), cool, and delicious.


Behold, 7 Unique Homemade Ice Creams for your summer enjoyment:

  1. Sweet Corn Ice Cream - I've been wanting to try this for ages.  Dan lived in Brazil for two years as a missionary for our church and they are into corn everything there, including ice cream.  It seems perfectly not-too-sweet.
  2. Avocado Ice Cream - Another type I've been wanting to experiment with for years.  I adore avocados and avocado milkshakes so this is a no-brainer.
  3. Coconut Pinkcherry Yogurt - I love the idea of sweet cherries against a backdrop of tangy yogurt.  Perfect for when sweet cherries come into season.
  4. Honey-Lavender Ice Cream - I adore lavender in desserts and ice cream is no exception.  Dan made me a lavender ricotta ice cream for my birthday a few years ago and I still dream about it.
  5. Roasted Banana Ice Cream - I used to loathe bananas with all my being, but a switch flipped in college and now I generally like them, so long as they're not mushy.  I love the idea of roasting and caramelizing them to bring out their natural sweetness.
  6. Sweet Basil Ice Cream - I just cannot get enough of basil in the summertime, so why not make it into a dessert?
  7. Goat Cheese Ice Cream - Definitely the most unusual of the pack.  But goat cheese seems to find its way into 99% of my meals, anyway, so why not make  it a solid 100?

(I realized after the fact that most of these recipes were adapted from my beloved The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz.  But it's perfect, so that's no surprise.)
