Fresh Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

Fresh Strawberry Frozen Yogurt, coned

Almost every shop that sells frozen yogurt is now offering “tart” yogurt, which is little more than yogurt-flavored yogurt, complete with the tang of the real thing. I like it, but not as much as I like regular yogurt or my homemade frozen yogurt, which uses a base of tangy Greek-style yogurt that is lightened with beaten egg whites. The tartness of the commercial frozen ... Read More »

Homemade Ice Cream Drumsticks

Homemade Ice Cream Drumstick!

I spent a lot of time at the park when I was little. I did all kinds of things: biking, roller skating, playing soccer and just about any other sport/activity you can think of alone or with my friends. One of my favorite activities – if I had a bit of change in my pocket – was paying a visit to the ice cream truck ... Read More »

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cake

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cake

Ice cream cakes are one of the best summertime desserts out there. While a cold mousse or a simple strawberry tart might make the covers of food magazines, nothing lights up a gathering of hot, hungry people like a gorgeous ice cream cake – especially if there are kids involved. And, of course, I feel that a homemade cake is always better than an store ... Read More »

  Even though food scientists have told usthat eating ice cream will not cool you down for more than a few minutes at a time, I am more than willing to take those few minutes of coolness on a hot summer day if it gives me an excuse to eat ice cream. But as I think about it, cream-based desserts/snacks – like ice cream – ... Read More »

Cookies n’ Cream Pudding Pops

 I have always been a fan of cookies n’ cream ice cream, where chunks of chocolate, oreo-type cookies are blended into a creamy base. When I have a couple extra cookies on hand and a batch of ice cream or frozen yogurt that needs spicing up, I’ll often chop them up and throw them into the mix. This time I was making a batch of ...

Crunchy Banana Pops

Crunchy Banana Pops

They might not have the most exciting name and they certainly aren’t going to be found on the dessert menus at any gourmet restaurants, but Crunchy Banana Pops are a fantastic summertime treat. These pops are made with frozen bananas that are coated in honey and rolled in puffed rice (a.k.a. Rice Krispies). The original recipe came from one of the first cookbooks I ever ... Read More »

Carrot Cake Frozen Yogurt

I love the idea of mix-ins for ice cream and I know I’m not the only one, as evidenced by the continually growing popularity of ice cream shops that offer mix-ins to their customers. More frozen yogurt shops are starting to offer the same service, so frozen treat fans can get the same combinations in a slightly healthier way. Aside from standards like chocolate chip ...

Caramelized Banana Buttermilk Ice Cream

Just when you probably thought that I wasn’t going to do any more ice cream posts, here is one more. After I posted the basic recipe for banana buttermilk ice cream, Fanny left a comment about making something similar: roasted banana ice cream. I was intrigued. How would the caramel-like flavor translate to the tangy ice cream? I opted to caramelize my bananas on the ... Read More »
