Latest Review: Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home

I don't know about you guys but I am an ice cream fanatic!  I saw this adorable little book at the library and decided to bring it home with me to test out on our ice cream maker.

I've made ice cream at home before (like the good little ice cream lover that I am) but the consistency has never been quite up to my liking.  The desserts always turned out a bit harder than I prefer and Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home claims to have a new DIY recipe to remedy this problem.  I won't give away any secret ingredients - sorry!  But I will say that her ice cream base is yum-tastic!

After going through the basics, the book is split up by season.  Each season is filled with delectable recipes and then ends with some mouth-watering sundae suggestions (like what's pictured above).  Here's some of my favorite flavor recipes:
  • Spring: Savannah Buttermint Ice Cream
  • Summer: Sweet Corn & Black Raspberry Ice Cream
  • Autumn: Roasted Pumpkin Five-Spice Ice Cream
  • Winter: Influenza RX Sorbet (citrus, honey, spices, and bourbon to cure the sniffles!)

Jeni Britton Bauer even includes recipes for macaroon ice cream sandwiches and homemade push-pops!  I highly suggest this book for any ice cream aficionado or for those who want to test out their ice cream makers!

5/5 stars


  1. This book looks fantastic! I love ice cream and have made a few with my Kitchen Aid.

  2. We have an ice cream maker but have not used it in a long time. I might have to pull it out because this book looks like it has some great recipes!

  3. The autumn flavor would be my favorite. Pumpkin is amazing!!!
