On a hot day, nothing beats the taste of homemade ice cream – but even better when made by you!
Making delicious ice cream starts with choosing the appropriate ingredients, and finding some fantastic homemade recipes in your local supermarket or grocery store.
Chocolate Ice Cream
Chocolate ice cream is one of the most beloved American ice cream flavors, beloved for its velvety texture and perfect balance of sweetness. Perfectly suitable as an indulgent standalone treat or mixed in with other ice cream flavors to create delectable milkshakes, chocolate is beloved among consumers across America.
This chocolate ice cream recipe uses simple ingredients: cocoa powder, sugar, brown sugar, heavy cream and milk. Since this dish does not use eggs as part of its custard base, its preparation time should also be reduced significantly.
Be sure to thoroughly mix cocoa powder and sugars so they dissolve, in order to prevent an unpleasant gritty texture when consumed. Once this mixture has cooled down, pour it into an ice cream maker according to manufacturer specifications and freeze as instructed.
Peppermint Ice Cream
Those of you who adore peppermint ice cream will surely swoon over this easy and delightful recipe! Perfect for snowy winter days or after a satisfying meal, my decadent hot fudge sauce adds the perfect finishing touch for this decadent dessert.
Once the custard mixture has completely chilled, stir in vanilla and peppermint extracts. If desired, a drop or two of red food coloring may help give it an eye-catching hue. Pour it into an ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions; adding crushed candy canes during last minute of churning will give extra crunch!
Enjoy this creamy and refreshing treat right away or chill it for several hours for an easier bite-size experience! Surely your family will enjoy it!

Banana Ice Cream
Banana ice cream is one of the easiest dash ice cream maker recipes. This treat is an ideal way to use up overripe bananas quickly, taking only minutes from start to finish.

To make this recipe dairy-free, swap out the milk and half-and-half with nondairy options, using vegan vanilla extract. Eggs may be added for texture purposes; beating egg whites before mixing will help avoid crystal formation and ensure an extra creamy finish! Freeze as per manufacturer instructions.
