Home » Roundup

Published: | Updated: | By Ashlee

I think you guys know by now that I ADORE my ice cream maker! And since today is July 1st, aka the beginning of National Ice Cream Month, I decided I needed to do a round up of recipes you can make in an ice cream maker. You can make Ice cream, Gelato, Frozen Yogurt, Sorbet and Slushies. I seriously use mine at LEAST twice a month year round, and once a week during the summer. I’ve made 6 batches of ice cream in the last 2 months alone (yes I have more recipes to share with you guys, coming up this month)

29 ice cream maker recipes (1)

I hope you guys enjoy this round up as much as I do! I found some really fun recipes that I haven’t even tried yet (although I will be now!!) So many crazy talented food bloggers out there sharing some amazing recipes. I’d love to hear from you guys what other recipes I should include in a round up (I’ll do another one next year). For now enjoy the pretties!

    Graham Canyon! I’d give it to my mom.

    A good homemade vanilla ice cream is my favorite. There is so much you can do with it. I would share with my oldest daughter. She’s great at sharing with her siblings.


  4. Shelby

    My favorite ice cream flavor is either vanilla or mint chocolate chip! I would give my other ice cream maker to my father-in-law. He’s always preparing something!


  5. Tiphanie W.

    My favorite flavor of ice cream is coffee. I also love mint chip!


  6. mickiedownend

    I’d share these with my daughters! they have young children and would, no doubt! get a lot of use out of them.


  11. Wendy Scoates

    Ooo, good question! My favorite flavor of ice cream is Oatmeal Cookie Crunch by Ben & Jerry’s. Unfortunately, it’s in their graveyard of flavors. My next fave is Talenti’s Caramel Cookie Crunch gelato. Mmm, that stuff is like crack!
    My fairy cakemother and mentor extraordinaire, Amber Adamson, would be the recipient of the 2nd machine. She has been a huge influence on myself and many other bakers to put ourselves out there and to believe in our abilities. She’s currently without a job and this would really brighten her day. She’s done so much for others, it would be nice to give back to her too.
    Thank you for all the yummy flavor recipes and for hosting such a great giveaway! <3

    Can you help me ?

      I’m sorry I don’t currently have any sherbert or sorbet recipes. I tend to go for the full fat, full cream ice creams. Not much of a fruity person.
