20 Real Food Homemade Ice Cream Recipes

 Yum! Summer’s not quite over – especially for us here in Arizona! But I figure homemade ice cream recipes are good year-round. 🙂

Sometimes we think of ice cream as an unhealthy, sugar-filled, fat-laden overindulgent treat with no merits. But I really feel differently! Sure, most store-bought ice cream is just exactly that. (Although, Haagen Daas Vanilla is about the cleanest ice cream I’ve found around.)

But homemade ice cream is a different creature altogether. You can control the ingredients and tailor it just exactly the way you want. You can fill it with healthy fats, like coconut milk or coconut oil, you can use raw milk, you can use raw, farm fresh eggs, and wholesome sugars like honey and maple syrup. It can, in fact, be a healthy treat for you and your family!

Of course, too much of a good thing isn’t good, but I don’t think you need to totally skip out on the delicious pleasures of homemade ice cream. You can start by trying these 20 different homemade ice cream recipes. If you can’t have dairy, many are dairy-free, and all are what I would call “real food” ice cream recipes. Some are just downright creative! 🙂 And what’s more, kids absolutely love getting to be a part of homemade ice-cream making!So don’t be afraid to give these a try!For some of these recipes you will only need a bread pan, similar to this one:
