This Raspberry Swirl Ice Cream is made with my go-to homemade vanilla ice cream recipe and swirled with fresh raspberries and raspberry jam! Bring on the summer desserts!
Homemade vanilla ice cream. Fresh raspberries. Sweet raspberry jam. I mean . . . need I say more?
There is something about fruit in ice cream that makes it feel more like “this-dessert-means-i’m-living-my-best-summer-life-i’m-supposed-to-be-eating-this” and less like “whoa-where-did-half-the-pint-go-i-better-hit-the-gym.” And I respect that in a dessert.
This raspberry swirl ice cream is oh-so-creamy. It is a super simple ice cream recipe that does not require double-boiling anything. And it is sweetened with maple syrup (and does not taste like maple), so we may as well call it healthy. (Kidding, guys. Calm down.)
The only important thing you have to decide now is waffle cone? sugar cone? cardboard cone? Not going to lie. I love them all. Oh yea and hot fudge. Because duh. It’s fudge.
How To Make Homemade Ice Cream?
The best and simplest homemade vanilla ice cream recipe ever + an ice cream maker + mix-ins. If you have these three things, you are set for summer. You need not make more plans.
I use a Cuisinart Ice 100 Compressor Ice Cream Maker, which is A+++++ for ice cream making, because it has a compressor and does not require a pre-chilled bowl.
