Creamy Blueberry FroYo for One w Zoku & Noosa Reviews

Creamy Blueberry Frozen Yoghurt for One w/Zoku & Noosa yoghurt ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #1-ingredient #FroYo #recipe

Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month? On top of that, it’s been scorching hot outside for weeks and I don’t think I’ve posted a single ice cream recipe yet this summer. What kind of food blogger am I? Seriously, I better get a move on! Well, I was lucky in that […]


Very Berry Ice Cream Float

Very Berry Ice Cream Float ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #icecream #float #recipe

July is National Ice Cream Month. Normally, I’m not a “drink my calories” kinda gal, but every once in a while, you gotta give in and have a summer treat, especially when we’re right in the middle of National Ice Cream Month and the temperatures outside are soaring. We’ve been very lucky this summer. Temperatures have […]


Baby Pink Raspberry Ice Cream

Baby Pink Raspberry Ice Cream ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #icecream #raspberry #recipe

It’s September, everyone is posting pumpkin and apple and soup recipes, and I’m posting ICE CREAM? Yeah, I know, it’s a little odd, but hey, it IS raspberry season in my world, and my friend Jessica is pregnant. I promised Jessica last summer sometime that I would make her ice cream, once we found out whether her baby […]


Strawberry Rhubarb Wine Ice Cream

Strawberry Rhubarb Wine Ice Cream ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #icecream #recipe

A lower fat ice cream adapted from Cooking Light I’ve been fascinated with the idea of wine ice cream for quite a while now … I read it was a hot food trend a while back (who knows how long ago–there is no timeline in my mind that keeps track of when I saw this […]


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 […]


Stracciatella Gelato

Stracciatella Gelato ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Italian #Ice Cream #recipe

Adapted from The Italian Chef I love the word Stracciatella … Italians have such a way of making things sound so romantic and beautiful. The first time I laid eyes on this Stracciatella Gelato from The Italian Chef, I wanted to try it. But of course, the timing wasn’t right … I didn’t have all the ingredients […]

It’s National Ice Cream Day! AND July is National Ice Cream MONTH.

Don’t let the simplicity of this vanilla ice cream make […]


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 […]


Fresh & Simple Peppermint Stick Ice Cream

Fresh & Simple Homemade Peppermint Stick Ice Cream

One of my favorite winter treats is Peppermint Stick Ice Cream … I used to buy it around Christmas-time every year because that is the only time you would see it in the stores. If you happen to have any candy canes left after the holidays, it is really quite simple to make. It takes […]


Dad’s Fresh & Simple Vanilla Ice Cream

Dad's Fresh & Simple Vanilla Ice Cream

Whoever coined the term “plain vanilla” really just didn’t know what they were talking about. As The Pastry Chef Online said when we were having our ‘V is for Vanilla’ day, “Vanilla is complex and sophisticated and wonderful.” It is! Vanilla is one of those subtle but wonderful flavors that just enhances everything it touches. When […]


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 […]


Watermelon Basil Rose Sorbet

Watermelon Basil Rose Sorbet

I’m guest posting over at  Cupcakes and Kale Chips today … Brianne is a good friend of mine and she is off on vacation. I’m quite happy to help her out while she enjoys her well-deserved vacation. I have several “food sisters” and Brianne  is one of them. With Brianne, we are salad sisters. We really […]


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 […]


4-layer Vanilla Cake with Whipped Chocolate Ganache

4-Layer Vanilla Birthday Cake with Whipped Chocolate Ganache

I am not a cake artist. My cakes rarely turn out that beautiful. I’m much better at styling a salad or baking up a pretty loaf of bread … but this year my girl and I were bound and determined to make a fantastic vanilla cake for her birthday party. When South your Mouth posted […]


Banana Colada Ice Cream with Spiced Fruit Compote

Banana Colada Ice Cream with Honey Spice Fruit Compote

The other day I was cruising around the blogosphere when I saw some coconut ice cream … I’m not much of a fan of that dried shredded coconut, but I love the flavor of coconut … and I thought: wouldn’t coconut ice cream be dreamy? Or better yet, coconut RUM ice cream? Oh and then […]


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

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 […]
