Homemade ice cream is one of the most wonderful things that you can treat yourself to on a hot summer day. Ice cream can be made in an almost unlimited variety of flavors, though we tend to stick with classic vanilla, chocolate and coffee ice creams as base recipes most of the time. This isn’t a bad thing – after all, these flavors are classics for a reason! But if you want to do something a little different with your next batch, then Ice Cream Adventures: More Than 100 Deliciously Different Recipes might be just the book for you.
This book is packed with recipes for unusual and creative ice cream flavors, flavors that will tantalize your palate and that you probably won’t find at the local ice cream shop. These include everything from Salty Buttered Honey Ice Cream to Pretzel Honey Mustard Ice Cream. There are lots of sweet and savory flavor combinations and pairings that work together in unexpectedly delicious ways. The recipes are very detailed and walk you through the process of making not only an ultra-creamy ice cream base, but extremely flavorful mix-ins that are used to finish off these one-of-a-kind flavors. It’s actually exciting to mix up a recipe like this, since you really don’t know where it is going until the ice cream has been churned and is ready to eat. And you can rest assured that they’re all delicious.
There are plenty of photos throughout the book that will tempt you to start churning up a batch as you flip through the pages. You’re going to need an ice cream maker to make these recipes, but if you’re looking for out-of-the-box flavors, you may already have one. If you need to pick one up, there is no time like the present. Check out my guide on how to choose an ice cream maker to guide you through the process.
