If there’s one food that makes us think of summer, it’s ice cream! What’s more satisfying than cooling down on a hot day with a frozen treat? Ice cream makes everything better!
In honor of National Ice Cream Day on July 18th, we thought it would be fun to share some easy ice cream recipes that you can make at home. Apartment homes in all our communities boast spacious and modern kitchens perfect for crafting any type of homemade ice cream. Check out some of our favorite recipes!
Traditional Homemade Ice Cream
If you’re an ice cream purist, this recipe is for you! Described as the only ice cream recipe you’ll ever need, it provides a great base for any flavor you want to make. What we really love about this NYT Cooking recipe is that it also includes a chart with 16 flavor ideas. Give one of them a try or create your own!
No-Churn Ice Cream
No-churn ice cream gives you the same great flavor and texture as traditional ice cream, but with much less hassle and equipment needed. This Delish recipe has summer written all over it: Strawberry Shortcake No Churn Ice Cream. Plus, the prep only takes 15 minutes and you can let the freezer do most of the work. Yes, please!

Healthy Ice Cream
Ice cream is delicious, but it’s considered a treat for a reason. Why not try a healthier option that is perfect for summer and super easy to make at home. We love these banana ice cream recipes by Chocolate Covered Katie. From chocolate and cookies and cream to blueberry and mint chocolate chip, there are so many tasty options to try. Plus, the healthier banana base means you can feel better about snacking on these frozen taste sensations!
At HHHunt, we believe it’s how you live that matters. As we prepare to celebrate everything ice cream, we hope you try one of these recipes and make your own homemade version. It might even become a summer tradition!
