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.

Honey & Lemon Thyme Ricotta Ice Cream

Fresh whole milk ricotta blended into a rich and creamy egg-free ice cream. Sweetened only with honey and infused with lemon thyme, this ricotta ice cream is luscious and aromatic. We love a recipe where you can use not only one but two delicious vanilla beans, but if you don’t have them on hand, vanilla paste is a great substitution! Serve this cool treat topped with warm vanilla peaches for a splendid summer sundae.
