Features & Benefits

Black Cherry Ice Cream in the Ice Cream Inspiration Cookbook

All the tastiest ingredients from Mother Nature

When you make ice cream at home, you can have complete control over what goes into it. Using real fruit (instead of a bunch of artificial flavorings) gives your ice cream a boost in flavor and nutrition. And of course, there won't be a single drop of high-fructose corn syrup like in store-bought ice cream.

The gourmet experience without the gourmet price-tag

Store-bought ice cream can have up to 50% air! And premium ice creams (without so much air) can be very expensive. But when you make ice cream using the recipes in Ice Cream Inspiration, you'll be saving money and making ice cream packed with flavor--not fluff.

Unbelievably fast

There's nothing worse than waiting around for dessert. That's not a problem here! All the recipes in the Ice Cream Inspiration cookbook have been formulated to be soft-serve-ready as quickly as possible. Many recipes can be made from start to finish in only 30 minutes.

The Ice Cream Inspiration Difference

No Eggs

None of the ice cream recipes use eggs. This is great news if you’re allergic to eggs! It’s also great news if you’re allergic to the extra work it takes to heat your milk, temper your eggs, strain your custard mixture, and then wait hours and hours for it to cool.

Amazingly Delicious Flavors

I’m all for being creative in the kitchen, but I draw the line when it comes to adding asparagus to ice cream! Every flavor here has been tested on real people, and every ingredient is readily available in your kitchen or local supermarket.

Full-Color Pictures with Every Recipe

It’s hard to get excited about recipes with no pictures. But in the Ice Cream Inspiration cookbook, you'll want to lick the page! Every ice cream recipe has a mouthwatering, full-color, full-page picture to tantalize your tastebuds.
