June’s Bloggers Scream For Ice Cream Round Up

With summer finally arriving in full force, June’s #BSFIC theme was fruit.

As always, you shared a wonderful variety of ideas, all of which I wish I could try! (Sorry for the delay in sharing the round up; I was away in Dubrovnik at the end of the month and straight back to work on my return).

Check out July’s challenge here.

Strawberry and rosewater ice cream

Inspired by a cheesecake he made a few years ago, Michael of Me My Food & I turned something ordinary into something special by creating a Strawberry and Rosewater Ice Cream. He’s added a little grenadine and vanilla for extra complexity of flavour, too.


Sudha, who writes Spicy, Quirky and Serendipitous, is a great improviser and pulled together her Vegan Coconut Milk Ice Cream with Strawberries after checking out a few coconut milk recipes that could be made without an ice cream machine.

Not only did Helen of Family, Friends, Food create a delicious ice cream but she made it into a sandwich too. Check out her Hazelnut Meringue 3 Berry Ice Cream Sandwich. I particularly love the pretty pink colour of her mixed berry ice cream.

Elizabeth of Elizabeth’s Kitchen diary has created a fabulous splash of colour by making Home Made Fab Ice Lollies. Inspired by a recipe in Aimee Ryan’s Coconut Milk Ice Cream book, these look way better than the shop-bought version!

It’s obvious that Laura knows How To Cook Food. Just look at her Raspberry Cranachan Ice Cream, taking a classic Scottish dessert and making an ice cream version. What a clever idea!


Janet, over at The Taste Space, used coconut to create her Chocolate Mint Chip Ice Cream, a refreshing cooler from the humid summer heat in Houston. Several long hours of stirring the freezing mixture every half an hour didn’t produce the texture Janet hoped for so she recommends using an ice cream machine for this recipe.

I’m always excited to see what Foodycat Alicia comes up with and was as impressed as usual with her beautiful Peach Melba Bombe. She used a version of MiMi’s cream cheese ice cream base, plus raspberries macerated in Chambord, peach puree and two freezer-proof bowls!


Julia, who writes Something Missing, has tantalised my taste buds with herTarte au Citron Frozen Yoghurt, in which she adds chopped up pieces of actual lemon tart to her yoghurt and lemon curds base. I really like the idea of chunks of pastry and curd providing texture.

Redcurrant Ice-cream

Choclette, the writer behind the wonderful Chocolate Log Blog, created a very pretty Redcurrant Ripple Ice Cream. She’s balanced the redcurrants with sweet white chocolate and a little vanilla. I keep meaning to do a ripple ice cream, and this gorgeous ice cream inspires me to go for it.


For my own entry, I created a creamy Quick & Easy Yuzu Ice Cream using Korean Yuzu Tea and a no churn base. Although this uses just three ingredients, Korean Yuzu Tea, condensed milk and double cream, it’s one of the tastiest ice creams I’ve made.

Banana and Almond Ice Cream

Not only was he the first to enter the challenge (once again), Michael made a second #BSFIC entry with this delicious Banana & Almond Ice Cream inspired by cinema ice cream!


It’s no secret that I adore mangoes so I was always going to be a fan of these Yoghurt Mango Ice Lollies by Lisa from United Cakedom. They look so refreshing!


Sarah from Maison Cupcake has discovered the joys of blending frozen fruit in a blender for an instant frozen treat, such as this No Churn Diary Free Vegan Raspberry Ice Cream. I’ve just taken delivery of a super powerful blender myself and have been planning a few frozen fruit sorbets and ice creams for the rest of summer too!


Nazima, who writes the Franglais Kitchen blog, has created a very pretty Blueberry, Vanilla and Mascarpone Ice Cream Terrine in which she layers rich vanilla mascarpone with a centre of crunchy fruit and almond milk sherbet.


Kate, the Gluten Free Alchemist, has achieved the most glorious rich purple colour in her Cherry-Almond Coconut Milk Ice Cream. She’s adapted a recipe from Aimee Ryan’s book, Coconut Milk Ice Cream, and it looks beautiful!


Please get your thinking caps on for July’s #BSFIC challenge, which has a theme of Holiday Memories.

    Fantastic entries. I really wanted to make something but just didn’t manage to in time – I have made something for the next challenge though so I just need to find time to write a blog post!
