11. Blackberry Thyme

You've not become an ice cream aficionado unless you've had every herb and spice in your sweet dairy treats! Blackberries and sugar are boiled down into a sweet compote, which is then swirled into the custard base that has been infused with thyme.

12. Sweet Curry Coconut

Curry? You might be shaking your head. In this recipe, though, the custard base replaces cream with coconut milk and the sweet curry powder gives the mix a little spice, a little sweetness, and a lot of pep.

13. Beet and White Chocolate

Beets look pretty weird...but they create a bright, beautiful fuchsia ice cream that’s as delicious as it looks. Freshly juiced beets and high quality white chocolate combine to make this unusual mixture a hit.

14. Mango Hibiscus Sorbet

Flowers? You bet! A homemade hibiscus simple syrup adds a red tint and a tang to the sweet champagne mangoes that provides most of the sorbet's flavor.
