Celebrating National Ice Cream Month

Summer is heating up here in Rochester, MN and we’ve got just the thing to quell the heat, homemade ice cream! We have recipes to share just in time for National Ice Cream Month. Try one of these sometime this month, or head to your favorite ice cream shop for a couple of delicious scoops.


No-Churn Roasted Berry Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

We love this recipe because it incorporates plenty of fresh fruit! We hope that you use fresh fruit from a local farmer’s market or farm to make this dish. This ice cream makes for a refreshing dish, and the Roasted Berry Sauce isn’t just for ice cream — it also tastes great on cakes, cheesecakes, and pancakes.

Coconut Ice Cream

This is a very luscious coconut ice cream. This recipe is very easy and extra creamy. Be sure to use the correct type of cream of coconut as there is a huge difference between cream of coconut and coconut milk. It is like the difference between evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk. Two brands to look for in cream of coconut are “Coco Lopez” and “Coco Colada”.


Raspberry sorbet

This fresh raspberry sorbet only takes 30 minutes to make, so be sure to prepare this for your next summer outing for a fun, creamy, delicious treat. We think adding lemon juice to the mix is a great way to add a bit of tang to the sweetness of this thick dessert. Garnish with some fruit or sprigs of your favorite seasoning to add some complementary color and texture.

With some help from Yelp, we have a list of places you can stop by for ice cream this month. Check out the reviews to find the perfect place to visit. Please feel free to share your favorite place to get ice cream in the comments. Thanks for reading the 501 on First Blog today!
