Homemade Ice Cream

Landon surprised me by getting me the ice cream attachment for my kitchen-aid last week!  I have been asking for one for over a year, so I was EXTREMELY excited to try it out.  Thank you honey! The bowl went into the freezer, and I was making ice cream the next day.  Over the last week I have made ice cream 4 times...thankfully the bowl only makes 1 quart.  

The first one I tried was strawberry since I had some very ripe strawberries on hand.  I found this recipe for Creamy Dreamy Strawberry Ice Cream over at Annie's Eats.  It was delicious and very easy to make!

I ordered the book The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz - he has some of the best recipes.  I used his chocolate recipe to make this Rocky Road Ice Cream (Landon's favorite).

We made ice cream at Liz's house Sunday, and we used her Mint Chocolate Chip recipe - you can find it here, at allrecipes.  It smelled and tasted delicious!  I love anything with mini chocolate chips in it!

I can't wait to try some gelato and frozen yogurt recipes!  Yay for ice cream!


  1. I love mine! (Side note: don't forget to ALWAYS turn on the mixer before pouring in the ingredients!!!) I broke mine doing that! :/
    I also have The Perfect Scoop and love it. I've found the kitchen aid instruction book has some good, basic, easy recipes in there too! :) have fun!

  2. Thanks for the tip Lindsey! :O) I'm sorry your's broke!
