The recipe calls for a simple yet delicious two-ingredient base of cream and condensed milk, which is then divided into three parts to make each of the distinct flavors.
The first part is laced with the vibrant taste of fresh strawberry puree, the second boasts the timeless flavor of vanilla extract, and the third has the luscious richness of melted chocolate.
When all three flavors are scooped into a container, the result is a visually striking and mouth-watering Neapolitan ice cream that will have you reaching for seconds!
Nutella Ice Cream
Attention all Nutella fans! You won’t want to miss this mouth-watering Nutella ice cream recipe by Entertaining with Beth. It’s a surefire way to satisfy your sweet tooth and indulge in the heavenly flavors of Nutella.
One of the best things about this recipe is that it’s versatile and can be made with or without an ice cream machine. So, even if you don’t have one, you can still whip up a batch of this delightful dessert.
The recipe actually provides you with three different ways to make Nutella ice cream.
The first is a simple no-churn, no-egg version that only requires five basic ingredients and a bowl, whisk, and freezer-safe container.
The second recipe requires an electric mixer and the same five ingredients, but with the addition of whipped heavy cream to create a fluffier and lighter texture.
The third recipe is an egg-based custard that requires more ingredients than the other two but results in a more sophisticated and well-balanced flavor profile.
Each of the three recipes has its own set of pros and cons, but the third recipe is the most elevated and indulgent in terms of flavor, sweetness, and richness.

Unique “N” Ice Cream Flavors
Nectarine Ice Cream
Get ready to take your taste buds on a fruity adventure with this unique and scrumptious nectarine ice cream. Made with fresh nectarines, this ice cream boasts a delectable blend of sweet and tangy flavors that’s sure to delight your palate, especially on a hot summer day.
One of the best things about this ice cream is its creamy texture that perfectly complements the juicy chunks of nectarine. Each bite promises a flavor explosion that’ll have you craving for more.
Want to try making this nectarine ice cream at home? Look no further than Caroline’s Cooking’s recipe. And here’s the cherry on top: you don’t even need an ice cream machine to make it!
To make this indulgent dessert, the recipe suggests roasting the nectarines to intensify their flavor and make the skins easier to remove. However, if you don’t want to turn on the oven, you can also grill or use raw nectarines. Once cooked, blend the nectarines together with sweetened condensed milk and whipped cream. Pour the mixture into a container and freeze it for at least four hours.
Nutmeg Ice Cream
Another unique “N” ice cream flavor is nutmeg ice cream. This ice cream has a warm and comforting flavor, with hints of cinnamon and vanilla.
Elevate your dessert game with this rich and indulgent nutmeg ice cream recipe by BBC Good Food.
The process starts with heating double cream and full-cream milk in a pan until it just starts to boil. While that’s heating, whisk egg yolks and sugar in a large bowl, and then gradually pour the heated cream mixture over the egg mixture, whisking continuously.
Once you’ve mixed together the cream and egg yolks for your ice cream recipe, it’s time to pour the resulting mixture back into a clean pan. Heat the mixture gently while stirring continuously, until it thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon.
Strain the custard through a sieve into a bowl, add freshly-grated nutmeg, and let it cool.
Finally, churn the mixture in an ice cream machine or pour it into a freezer-proof container and freeze for several hours, stirring every 1.5 hours, until the ice cream is smooth and thick.
