Notes
I use a KitchenAid Stand and KitchenAid Ice Cream Attachment.[br][br]Place the Ice Cream into a plastic or glass container to freeze overnight. I don’t have any metal ice cream containers. To prevent it from getting icy, place plastic wrap on the ice cream to seal it and keep air from it.[br][br]Recipe from [url href=”http://amzn.to/1Q4BhBC” target=”_blank”]Ben & Jerry’s Homemade Ice Cream & Dessert Book[/url]

There are chunks of ripe, sweet cherries and real chocolate shavings in this homemade Cherry Garcia Ice Cream.
Do you have all the supplies to make your own homemade ice cream?  I have a KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment but I have a lot of friends who have the Cuisinart Pure Indulgence 2-Quart Automatic Frozen Yogurt, Sorbet, and Ice Cream Maker. I don’t think that you can make actual ice cream in a Yonanas Deluxe Ice Cream Treat Maker, but it does make some good sherbet (find some yummy sherbet recipes here).

Don’t forget the accessories! You’ll need fun new Ice Cream Bowls and an Ice-Cream Scoop. Do you need a new ice cream recipe book? Or you can try this ice cream book. Of course, my favorite is the Ben & Jerry’s Homemade Ice Cream & Dessert Book!

And don’t forget an entire summer’s worth of Sprinkles! The kids are going to go crazy when they see all those rainbow jimmies.

So, get ready for ice cream season and start making your own favorite ice cream flavors at home.
