Just in time for National Ice Cream Day this weekend! Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month? Americans consume about 22 pounds of ice cream and related frozen desserts each year, on average. As the summer reaches peak temperatures in July, Americans celebrate National Ice Cream Month as a way to cool off and enjoy the nation’s favorite frozen treat with friends and family.
While you could crank up the air conditioning, indulging in some homemade ice cream is far more satisfying. Take a look at this collection of the best homemade ice cream recipes and treat yourself to some cool treats that just can’t be beat.

Serve this cool treat topped with warm vanilla peaches for a splendid summer sundae.
