Ice Cream

Mint Chip Irish Cream Ice Cream

Mint Chip Irish Cream Ice Cream ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthier #Irish #dessert #recipe

This recipe is an interesting balance of decadent and healthy ingredients to make a delightfully creamy mint ice cream laced with Irish cream liqueur and little bits of minted chocolate that’s perfect for St. Patrick’s Day (or any day when you want a little mint chocolate ice cream). Really I never know where I’ll end […]


Lemon Berry Sherbet

Lemon Berry Sherbet ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sherbet #recipe

I got this recipe from my sister. Leave it to my sister to find the perfect sherbet recipe. She has the best recipes. I could never seem to find the right mix of ingredients for sherbet. When we went to visit my parents a couple weekends ago, they had just made strawberry sherbet with fresh […]


Ginger Cantaloupe Ice Cream

Ginger Cantaloupe Ice Cream

I was at the grocery store last week and they had these HUGE locally grown cantaloupe … my daughter had been staying with her grandparents for the week and would be coming home soon and she loves cantaloupe, so I bought one, brought it home, cut it up, and had this gargantuan tub of pretty […]


Basil Green Tea Gelato

Basil Green Tea Gelato

Do you love basil? I love basil. My mother has suggested maybe my dad and I love basil a little too much. How could that possibly be? I have seen people put basil in sorbets and syrups and even cookies, so for #icecreamlove this month, I had this brilliant flash of inspiration: I wanted to […]


Peanut Butter Ice Cream {Low Fat}

Lowfat Peanut Butter Brown Sugar Ice Cream with PB2

I am a peanut butter fanatic. For as long as I can remember, I have cherished the taste of peanut butter. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were my favorite snack growing up … until as a teenager, I noticed I was putting on some weight. I asked my mom (the dietician) for some help and […]


Muck Ice Cream (Chocolate, PB & Banana)

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream

Creamy. Chocolatey. Peanut-buttery. Ice cream. Oh yes, and banana. This is my son’s creation, his brain-child, his idea. I wanted to give it a fancier name, but he wasn’t having any of that. NO, it’s Muck Ice Cream. I asked him what Ben & Jerry’s would name it and he said, “Muck Ice Cream.” I […]


Brandied Pumpkin Maple Spice Ice Cream

Brandied Pumpkin Maple Spice Ice Cream

I know it might seem a little odd to be making ice cream in the fall when the weather is starting to get chilly, but think about it. This is the time of year when people are baking pies and apple crisp and don’t you always want a scoop of ice cream on top? Why […]


Sweet Corn Ice Cream with Salted Caramel Sauce

Sweet Corn Ice Cream with Salted Caramel Sauce

(Also, scroll to the bottom to see what to do with the REST of the plentiful corn …) Buttered popcorn is my very favorite jelly bean flavor. I don’t even like jelly beans … but if it’s a buttered popcorn jelly bean, I do. So the idea of sweet corn ice cream really appealed to […]


Rich, Creamy Dark Chocolate Milk Stout Ice Cream

Rich Creamy Dark Chocolate Milk Stout Ice Cream ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chocolate #stout #ice cream

I am a woman. I’m not supposed to like dark beer. But I do! I love it! Thick, dark beer. Beer so dark it could be mistaken for coffee. Oatmeal stouts.  Rogue Shakespeare Oatmeal Stout mmm. Cream Stouts. Porters. Double Chocolate Stouts. And my most recent discovery: Milk Stouts. On vacation in Colorado this year (the perfect […]


Peach Banana Coconut Ice Cream Sandwiches

Ice cream sandwiches made with Peach Banana Coconut Rum Ice Cream

It’s National Ice Cream Sandwich Day today … what food screams summer fun better than that! So I made some ice cream sandwiches for you for the occasion. And an ice cream that can be made either in either the regular version or lactose-free. Both are low in fat and sugar and full of good […]


Coffee Ice Cream Dreams

Ice cream for breakfast on the patio

We are having a heat wave here this summer and what’s better in the heat of summer than ice cream? I love coffee and I love ice cream, not to mention good Mexican vanilla, so this recipe brings it all together with decadent Kahlua (which I was pleasantly pleased to discover is really not all […]
