I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream…and frozen yogurt…and sorbet! I love all these frosty treats on a hot day and what better way to enjoy them then by making them myself. I hope I’ve collected some recipes you’ll find enticing. They all sounded absolutely delicious to me and most of them require ingredients I tend to have in my pantry or fridge on a regular basis.
Peach and Toasted Pecan – My Recipes
My two favorite treats rolled into one fantastic flavor. It surely can’t get much better than this! It’s key to use fresh peaches for this ingredient to get the best tasting ice cream. The sweet and salty combination sounds like a winner to me.
Lemon Sorbet – Real Simple
If sorbet is more your thing, then this easy recipe might be what you need. 3 simple ingredients make up this tasty summer treat. Besides only needing 3 ingredients, there are also only 3 steps to follow. Talk about simple!
No-Cook Strawberry Ice Cream – Epicurious
Since strawberries are always prevalent at the Farmers Market during the summer, this would be an excellent recipe to have on-hand. If you come across some strawberries that are already extremely sweet, you might be able to lessen the amount of sugar used in the recipe.
Strawberry Banana Frozen Yogurt – Salsa Garden Chronicles
This is a great recipe for that little handful of strawberries in the fridge and lonely banana no one wants to eat. Strawberries and bananas have always been a nice combination, when it comes to frozen treats. You can follow this recipe and have 5 cups of ice cream ready in no time!
Ice Cream in a Bag – Spoonful
Need something for the kids to do at your next gathering? Let them make their own individual servings of ice cream! This recipe walks you through setting up baggies with all the goods to make small servings of ice cream. Kids will get a kick out of being able to do this on their own.
Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt – Chocolate Covered Katie
The nutrition facts on this recipe show that it has 5.8g of protein in it. There are also only 11.4g of carbs, with 5.3 of those grams coming from sugar. I think that sounds pretty amazing in itself! I like the option to use pure stevia extract in place of sugar as well. Great recipe!
Blueberry Sorbet – Chocolate and Carrots
I love the pics with this recipe. The blueberry sorbet looks scrumptious! This recipe also uses pomegranate juice. I also like the use of maple syrup instead of sugar or simple syrup. I like maple syrup on my blueberry pancakes, so why not add it to my blueberry sorbet?! Yum!
Pomegranate and Mint Sorbet – Food Network
I’m always up for trying new things and this particular sorbet intrigued me. I never thought of mixing pomegranates and mint together. Besides the mint and pomegranate, the recipe also calls for chocolate chips and orange juice. This sounds like something I might like to try!
Strawberry Ice Cream – J and J Acres
I’m a visual person and having a video to watch for this recipe seems like the way to go. Gather all your ingredients and follow along! The makers of this video also suggest using goat’s milk, in place of cow’s milk. So, if you happen to have a milking goat on-hand, then you might want to save this recipe for future use.
Watermelon Yogurt Ice – Eating Well
Using watermelon in a frozen yogurt recipe has never crossed my mind. But, now that I’ve found this recipe that uses ingredients I almost always have available, I just might have to try this one very soon. It makes 8 servings and only takes about an hour to complete with an ice cream maker. You can still make this recipe if you don’t have an ice cream maker, which is always nice to know before you drag out the ice cream maker!
