What is a better summer dessert than ICE CREAM?! I love all things ice cream. What's better than enjoying a nice bowl of homemade ice cream topped with fresh raspberries on a warm summer afternoon or evening?
My basic vanilla recipe is heavenly, if I do say so myself, and I love adding delicious things to it ... like cookies (for a cookies and cream) or a cake mix, for cake batter ice cream... yum. Who needs those fancy ice cream shops when you can do it yourself!
I'm now experimenting with making some fruit-filled ice creams, and we have greatly enjoyed this deliciousness....
Cherry Ice Cream. Yum.
And, if you want, add in some chocolate chips (dark chocolate, if you ask for my preference) and you have dark chocolate cherry decadent ice cream... for less fat (I use fat-free half and half, and light whipping cream to make my ice cream base) and more wholesome ingredients (read: no ingredients you can't pronounce) than the store brands.
