The heat is scalding, so take out those whisksksksksks

We know some of you had your summer plans cancelled, but don’t let the heat melt away the fun. You can take away the person from the beach, but that doesn’t stop us from igniting that summer fire we know you have. What better way to spark that joy by making your own ice cream at home – and no, machine not required!

Cookies and Cream

Kabahan ka na, Jadine, because the perfect duo just arrived. If ice creams had a national flavor, it’s probably going to be Cookies and Cream. This crowd favorite reigns supreme as it continues to give us the best of both worlds.

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 14 oz condensed milk
  • Oreo cookies

What to do:

  • Whip the heavy cream and condensed milk together in a large bowl until slightly thick and creamy. Use a hand mixer for faster results
  • Get a couple of oreos and put these inside a ziplock
  • Using a rolling pin, crush the oreos until it’s a mix of small and big chunks
  • Mix together the crushed oreos with the cream base
  • Transfer the mixture in a container, freeze, and enjoy!

Mango and Passionfruit Ice Cream

Ease up on that cruel summer love with some flair of the tropics. When it comes to the most refreshing choice, this surely gets our vote. It wouldn’t be summer without some mangoes and a dash of passionfruit from miles away (thanks, Drake 🎶)

  • Add in the mango chunks and mix carefully so as not to crush the mangoes further
  • Mix together in a separate container and freeze

Ice Cream Sandwich

Y’all basic if you think vanilla isn’t a god tier flavor. This easy choice is anything but boring. If Tilda Swinton or Johnny Depp were ice cream flavors, vanilla is the sure way to go with the many ways you can elevate this pick to prove that once and for all, it’s the most versatile flavor.
