We all know that summer is ice cream season, but the Cuisinart ice cream maker recipes on this page will have you ready to make them all year round. We promise you’re in for a treat, literally! So, continue reading for incredible ice cream inspiration.
5 Fun Facts About Ice Cream
1. Get ready for your jaw to hit the floor in amazement! On average, every American eats a waistline bulging 23 gallons of ice cream per year. So how do we have room for anything else between eating doughnuts, hot dogs, and ice cream?
2. Are you surprised to learn that vanilla is the most popular ice cream flavor? We’re not surprised at all. Vanilla, while subtle, is delicious! And it’s the perfect base for toppings and the best accompaniment for pie.
3. The most expensive ice cream dish is Black Diamond from Scoopi Cafe in Dubai, and it’ll set you back over $800! The ice cream is made with edible sheer yellow metal and frozen using nitrogen, an expensive modernist technique. Then it’s shrouded in 23-karat gold flakes, saffron, and Italian black truffle. Also, they serve it in a hand-crafted Versace bowl that you get to keep.
4. Merchant and explorer Marco Polo is credited with spreading ice cream throughout Europe.

Don’t you just love warm cinnamon-spiced cooked apples, buttery, melt-in-your-mouth crust, apple pie? We sure do! That’s why this apple pie ice cream from Amy of House Of Nash Eats is a great late-summer treat. It’s everything you love about apple pie in ice cream form. So it’s perfect for when apples are just coming into season, but it’s not quite baking season yet. And if you want a cold treat you’ll be making all summer long, definitely see her old-fashioned peach ice cream recipe.

2. Rocky Road Ice Cream
Enjoy this easy and indulgent rocky road ice cream all summer from Mary of Barefeet In The Kitchen. Rocky road ice cream has all of the mix-ins you could ever ask for, what with marshmallows, almonds, and chocolate chips. It’s just full of deliciousness! Luckily, there’s not much active cooking time for the mix, two minutes, actually. But, most of the time, you’ll be waiting (impatiently) for the mixture to cool off so you can churn it…and eat it.

3. Chunky Apricot Ice Cream
If you are anything like Sue of The View From Great Island, you just can’t wait to put your ice cream maker in service. I get it. That’s what it’s there for, right? To pump out one delicious ice cream recipe after another. Anywho, we love that Sue loaded this apricot ice cream up with a lot of the stone fruit. In fact, she added a whole pound of it. So don’t let the soft, old-fashioned color fool you. She packed it with flavor.

6. Homemade Pomegranate Ice Cream Recipe
Before she gets into the recipe, Allison of Dream A Little Bigger gives us a brief history lesson on the pomegranate. Perhaps, one of the first cultivated fruits. You know, pomegranate is delicious, but it’s not one of the first flavors you think about for ice cream or sweet treats. That’s why this well-tested recipe is excellent to add to your must-try list. It’s probably new to you and looks so delicious!

7. Raspberry Ice Cream
This raspberry Cuisinart ice cream maker recipe from Whitney of Salt and Baker looks luxuriously creamy and rich. That’s because it’s a decadent custard-based (egg yolks) ice cream, which is our favorite. So, you have that unique sweet tanginess of raspberries combined with a rich sweet cream base. Heavenly! In addition, you’ll find a super-helpful post full of tips and tricks and answers to common questions.

8. Salted Caramel Ice Cream
Salted caramel ice cream is a family favorite around these parts, so this recipe from Jodi of 5 Boys Baker certainly has us cheery. But we know first hand that salted caramel ice cream isn’t the easiest to make. It requires patience and, equally important, a good recipe. So we were happy to see that Jodi filled her page with lots of tips and an image of the amber color you should look for when you make the caramel.

9. Italian Lemon Ice Cream With Limoncello
This lemon ice cream recipe from duo Emily and Nathan of Inside The Rustic Kitchen is on our must-try list! It just looks like an exciting recipe as they infused it with limoncello (Italian lemon liquor) and topped it with pinenuts and lemon peel. It’s custard-based, so it has a creamy and luxurious texture. And because of the alcohol, you can expect it to be a bit softer and more scoopable.

10. Cherry Bourbon Ice Cream
This cherry bourbon ice cream from Janice of Bake school is a lovely, creamy, fruity ice cream sure to impress. Not only does Janice make delicious ice cream, but she also schools us with some ice cream science. Particularly alcohol’s place in the cold confection. You want to add enough to be softer and easier to scoop. But add too much, and you’ll end up with a soup that just refuses to freeze. Lucky for us, Janice shares her wisdom after testing many ice cream recipes.

11. Strawberry Rhubarb Ice Cream
This strawberry rhubarb ice cream is the perfect Cuisinart ice cream maker recipe, brought to you by the kind folks over at Weekend At The Cottage. And it captures the essence of summer in every bite. You get the sweetness of the strawberries along with the tanginess of rhubarb for an age-old classic. The iconic soft pink color comes from the juiciest of ruby-red strawberries picked at their peak combined with a cream base. It’s simply delicious!

12. Goat Cheese Honey Ice Cream
Allana of The Bojon Gourmet made this goat-cheese honey ice cream inspired by Za’atar broiled figs. The same gorgeous figs in the image above. Although it looks delicious, goat cheese isn’t the most popular ice cream flavor. But it should serve as a reminder of how versatile ice cream can be. However, this ice cream will have a strong goat cheese flavor, perfect for goat cheese lovers. So, are you intrigued? We are!

13. Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream
When life gets to be overwhelming, Meghan of Cake N Knife makes ice cream. And so that’s how she developed this blueberry-cheesecake ice cream recipe. It’s not a custard, so it comes together pretty quickly. The only thing to cook is the blueberry compote. But you can still expect a rich and smooth texture from the cream cheese base with long-lasting flavor interrupted now and then by the crunch of smashed graham crackers.

14. Birthday Cake Ice Cream
Jessica of Home Body Eats invites us to celebrate with her with this birthday-cake ice cream recipe.

It’ll make you smile!

15. Ice Cream With Brown Butter And Pecan Brittle

16. Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream
Kimberly of Daring Gourmet, a marriage counselor and creator of this pumpkin pie ice cream, gives us this delicious recipe with a warning. The last bit of ice cream may turn otherwise harmonious couples into selfish individuals. I can see why. You have a creamy custard base with pumpkin puree, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spices, and graham crackers. It’s everything you could want in a holiday treat, even though we wouldn’t think you’re weird for craving it all year long.

17. S’mores Ice Cream
Ryan of Fork and Chisel brings us this delicious s’mores ice cream. A familiar treat in ice cream form. So, if you like ice cream and s’mores, this one is a no-brainer. We love s’mores and any opportunity (read: excuse) to torch marshmallows like with this s’mores ice cream sandwich or chocolate margarita. Ryan’s recipe has all the usual suspects, Hershey’s chocolate, graham crackers, and marshmallow creme. Oh, and if you need a DIY firepit, he’s got you covered there too.
