We know that there are tons of good ice cream options out there. Without having to exert any effort (other than picking up a pint at the store), you can easily enjoy awesome flavors like Ben & Jerry's Hazed & Confused and Graeter's Elena's Blueberry Pie. It's hard to make a case for homemade ice cream.
But guys, it's really fun and really tasty to make your own. Of course you have to give old-fashioned vanilla a try -- and chocolate is a must. But you can also make up creative flavors like toasted marshmallow coconut or matcha mint chip. The possibilities are endless, and we think that's reason enough to churn a few batches at home this summer.
