    17 Delicious Ice Creams That You Can Make At Home

    Churn, baby, churn.

    Homemade ice cream RULES — it's extra creamy, you can make literally any flavor you want, and it's fun.

    OH YEAH — and you can put double the good stuff in. No more searching around for the best bite of cookies or fudge swirl.

    Of course, you could dig into a pint of Ben & Jerry's, but DIYing your own ice cream is much easier than you think and doesn't *necessarily* mean you've gotta buy special equipment or make a complicated custard base.

    You can always use an ice cream maker, but you can also make a no-churn ice cream using just a whisk or a hand beater. Or you can use a food processor to turn frozen fruit into a soft-serve-style treat. (Trust me, it's actually really delicious.)

    Here are 17 ways to get started:

    1. Wild Blueberry and Lavender Ice Cream

    2. No-Churn Salted Caramel, Toffee, and Pretzel Ice Cream

    3. Pistachio Mint Chip Ice Cream

    4. Naturally Sweet Chocolate-Banana Ice Cream

    So, this isn't technically ice cream. It's made from bananas, cacao, and chopped chocolate, and yet it TASTES like ice cream! Win-win. The food processor gives the frozen bananas a smooth and ice cream–like consistency. Get the recipe here.

    6. Lemonade Ice Cream
