Delicious, Unique and Healthy Homemade Ice Cream

There is only one thing that comes to mind about food during summer and that’s ice cream. Who doesn’t love ice cream?

But if you are tired of eating the same flavors of ice cream, you may want to try making them at home. You will need some ingredients that you might have already in your pantry and of course, your own ice cream machine and freezer.

 

1. Hojicha Ice Cream | Roasted Green Tea Ice Cream

Hojicha is a roasted green tea usually taken after a meal or served with sweets to clean the palate but it is also a great ingredient for ice cream.

It is low in caffeine and has an earthy and wonderful aromatic character.

Hojicha ice cream will require you to powderize the loose leave and strain them afterward.

3. Kinako Ice Cream with Kuromitsu

Have you heard of kinako? Kinako is roasted soybean flour which tastes very robust and has a deep tea-like flavor.

Kinako Ice Cream with Kuromitsu is an earthy ice cream sweetened with Okinawan black sugar syrup.

The base flavor of this ice cream is made of kinako (roasted soybean flour) that not only deepens the flavor but also adds a dense body to each bite.

       

4. Strawberry Ice Cream with Vodka Infused Berries

Not all ice creams are for kids. Some flavors are meant to be enjoyed exclusively by adults too!

Strawberry Ice Cream with Vodka Infused Berries is an alcohol-fueled twist on a classic ice cream.

The strawberries used were at peak ripeness enabling me to cut back on the sugar.

Serve the ice cream with a waffle cone or a bit of whipped cream and it might just mysteriously vanish before your eyes.
