At our house, ice cream is a year-round treat. I’ll wrap myself in blankets and enjoy a bowl of ice cream in mid-December, no problem. That said, my ice cream dessert consumption definitely goes up a notch or twelve come July. There’s nothing better than capping off a day in the sun with a refreshing frozen treat.
We’re lucky to live in a city with an abundance of ice cream shops (seriously, it’s an embarrassment of riches), but I also love making ice cream desserts at home. Today, I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites for you to try. Save these for your next summer party or make them for yourself to cool off after a hot day.

The end result is nothing short of what ice cream dreams are made of.
