1. Strawberry Red Pepper
Sure, strawberry ice cream is already great, but it gets boring after a while. Adding in some red pepper and paprika will do for your strawberry ice cream what swinging did for your weird aunt and uncle’s relationship.
Kale’s been in everything else you’ve eaten for the past five years, so why not toss it in your ice cream maker as well?
One bite of this absinthe ice cream and you’ll swear you’re in 1920’s Paris, not standing at your kitchen counter in a pair of torn sweatpants.
4. Zucchini Bread
Zucchini bread manages to take a healthy vegetable and turn it into cake, so let’s go ahead and turn zucchini bread into ice cream, ok?
5. Sweet Corn
Sweet corn might be the perfect gateway into ice cream flavors from the supermarket’s veggie section. “Sweet” is right there in the name, after all.
6. Green Pea
Because you know you already have a bag of frozen peas in your freezer. Go check, we’ll wait. Yep.
Sure, when people ask you what a parsnip is you’ll still have to answer, “um, I think it’s like a carrot?” But you’ll know for sure that you’ve made amazing ice cream.
Ok, you might be even less clear on what taro is than what a parsnip is, but again, no one will care while they’re chowning down.
Fair warning: according to its creator, this ice cream REALLY tastes like celery. But if you’ve ever loved ants on a log, maybe toss on some peanut butter sauce and go to town?
10. Curried Butternut Squash
It’s like a spoonful of Autumn or a spoonful of India or maybe even a spoonful of Autumn in India. All very exciting things.
11. Olive Oil
If you’re the person who gets excited when the bread at the restaurant shows up with a bowl of citrusy olive oil instead of boring old butter, this one is for you.
12. Black Pepper
Black pepper might not sound like the first thing you’d add to ice cream, but the end result is like if vanilla ice cream had an evil twin. A delicious evil twin.
Cucumbers are chilly and refreshing, so if you think about it, they’re sort of a perfect fit for a summertime treat like ice cream.
14. Sweet Potato
This one isn’t just delicious, it’s actually healthy. It’s basically an ice cream version of your over-achieving best friend from high school.
15. Avocado Coconut
You love the creamy goodness of ice cream. You love the creamy goodness of avocado. Yeah, go make this now.
16. Sriracha Chocolate Chip
You know that one friend you have that swears they wish they could have sriracha on everything? Time to show them just how right they’ve been.
