Ice cream. The dessert that has held your hand at every, single major life event up until this point in your life. It comes in all sorts of sizes, containers, and flavors, one of my favorite being the underrated pistachio. As much as I love a good pre-made flavor, I am currently a huge supporter of ice cream shops that mix in ingredients for you. These places give creative people like myself the opportunity to create any ice cream flavor imaginable. So, here's nine ice cream combinations that are absolutely to die for.
1. Key Lime Pie
This one consists of vanilla ice cream, powdered lemonade mix, and crushed up graham crackers. Sounds gross, tastes just like the Florida Keys.
2. Cherry Garcia Dupe
Cherries, meet chocolate ice cream, meet more chocolate. Yum.
Ironic because it's coming straight out of the freezer, not the fire. Marshmallows, dark chocolate chunks, graham crackers, and vanilla ice cream are all you need!
Think. Girl Scout cookies crushed in vanilla ice cream, but you can have it year round even when it's not Girl Scout cookie season. Ingredients: coconut, caramel, dark chocolate, and vanilla ice cream.
5. Strawberry Cheesecake
This ones pretty self explanatory. Vanilla ice cream, real cheesecake chunks, and fresh strawberries. Come to mama.
6. Cinnamon Toast Crunch
Ice cream for breakfast? Yeah, we're onboard with that too. Vanilla ice cream + crushed up bits of cinnamon toast crunch. Who needs omelets when you have ice cream.
7. Cake Batter
Whoever said boxed cake mix was for making cakes was wrong. Throw that into vanilla ice cream and you've got yourself the best homemade cake batter ice cream.
8. PB Cup Brownie Pretzel
See above title for ingredients.
9. Chunky Monkey Dupe
A personal favorite. Mix walnuts, dark chocolate chunks, bananas, and vanilla ice cream to recreate this crowd pleaser.
Find the nearest ice cream shop with a marble slab, and show them your creative genius. Who knows, maybe you'll get a flavor named after you.
