9 Homemade Ice Cream Recipes for Your Ice Cream Maker


We’re in the dog days of summer now, folks. When the sun is beating down and the humidity is sweltering, there’s only one thing that can satisfy us—homemade ice cream! It’s cold, creamy, and oh-so-delicious, making it perfect for the hottest days of summer.

We love homemade ice cream because it always tastes richer and because it’s so easy to customize to our exact taste! Often, we find ourselves following a recipe for the base of the ice cream, but we love to change things up to please our own taste buds when it comes to the extras we put in it. Paula has so many wonderful recipes to inspire you to make your own ice cream this summer, and they are, truthfully, pretty darn simple.

While you don’t have to have an ice cream maker to enjoy homemade ice cream, it certainly does make it easier! With the exception of Paula’s Easy Homemade Cookies ‘n Cream Ice Cream recipe, all of these are homemade ice cream recipes for your ice cream maker. Though if you find yourself without one, the cookies n’ cream ice cream recipe is a great base—simply swap out the crushed cookies with chocolate chips, your favorite fruits, chopped nuts, caramel swirls, or anything else that gets your imagination running and your lips smacking!
