Mint Ice Cream with Chocolate and Chilli
One of my favourite ice cream flavours is mint chocolate chip. It's a flavour I make quite often and it never lets me down. But I thought I'd spice things up a little by adding chilli to the mix. Chilli is the perfect partner for mint - the warm and the cool play a tug-o-war with your taste buds. In the end, you're left with a happy buzz and a warm mouth.
To make this ice cream, I used this recipe for mint ice cream recipe as a starting point. It's a delicious creamy ice cream, not too ...
Vanilla Pear Ice Cream Recipe
Vanilla bean and pear are about as good as it gets when it comes to ice cream. The pictures I've included are fairly unassuming but don't be fooled - this is one of the best ice creams I've tasted in ages. To start with, you'll need to make the vanilla bean ice cream base. There are plenty of good vanilla ice cream recipes available but my favourite is this recipe which uses vanilla beans. I understand this ingredient costs a fortune so if cost is a factor then you can get away with using ...
Strawberry Ice Cream Recipe
Making strawberry ice cream is easy
Here in Melbourne, summer is well and truly over - it's wet and cold. Luckily it's still warm in other parts of Australia and so the strawberries never seem to go out of season. I took advantage of this by making a big batch of strawberry ice cream. The base is really creamy which is the perfect combination for strawberries.
If strawberries aren't in season in your part of the world, you can use frozen berries. It's not quite as good, but you can still ...
Pumpkin Ice Cream Recipe
This is a simple recipe for making pumpkin ice cream that's also really cheap to make. I bought a half kent pumpkin for under a dollar at the supermarket and just boiled it until it was soft. It doesn't take long but if you're in a hurry, you can buy pumpkin puree in a can which works fine. There are some cans of pumpkin which are used for pie filling that have other flavours added. Avoid this type and stick with pure pumpkin puree.

Coriander and Lime Ice Cream
Coriander, also known as cilantro, is a really divisive herb. Most either love it or hate it. It's very popular in Mexican and Indian cooking as well as a fantastic addition to Vietnamese Bahn mi rolls. But is this a suitable ingredient for ice cream? Well I decided to give it a try by making coriander and lime ice cream.

Honey and caramel go together really well. This ice cream is no exception to the rule. It's a simple ice cream that will be popular with most that try it.

Lemon Ice Cream Recipe
Lemons are responsible for some of the greatest tasting desserts. Lemon meringue pie, lemon cake, lemon pudding, lemon souffle are just a few classics. Now you can add lemon ice cream. I compare this ice cream to lemon meringue pie only creamier and cooler (and better).

Rum and Raisin Ice Cream
Boozy ice cream works a treat. Rum, in particular, goes so well with a creamy ice cream base. Add some raisins and you have a winning dessert every time... rum and raisin ice cream. Once this ice cream was ready, I added biscotti to make the perfect ice cream sandwich.
