Hi Bold Bakers!

Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream has to be one of the world’s most popular brands of ice cream. They have tons of imaginative flavors with great ingredients that blow others out of the water.

My favorite was Dublin Mudslide, however after a 2 year stint that flavor ended up in the flavor graveyard. Apparently not everyone liked it as much as I did.

I asked on my Facebook and Instagram pages for your favorite flavors and the response was crazy! You guys love Ben & Jerry’s.

You helped create a Top 5 list of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Creams flavors that now you can make in your very own Homemade No Machine Version.

And if you didn’t see your favorite Ben & Jerry’s flavor, then send me your request in the comments and I might be able to make it next time.

To make our flavors we are using my Two Ingredient No Machine Ice Cream recipe. For those of you who haven’t seen that recipe, it is homemade ice cream made using just whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk. And you don’t need an ice cream machine!

My absolute favorite. I could eat a tub of this on my own.

Leave some cookie chunks in your ice cream. And you can always use digestive biscuits instead of graham crackers.

Homemade Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia: Cherry Ice Cream with Cherries and Fudge Flakes

I get a lot of requests for black forest gateau. I’m guessing a lot of you like cherries and chocolate. It’s not my favorite flavor but it did turn out lovely.

You actually don’t need to add cherry flavor if you have in-season cherries.

We use fudge in this ice cream because it doesn’t freeze as solid as chocolate.

Hi Gemma, many thanks for these wonderful ice cream flavours. This is one of my favourite brands. Recently I am obsessed with Ben&Jerry’s salted caramel Almond. It will be highly appreciated if u share recipe for this one.
Thank you

Hi Gemma. I recently discovered your website and got some maxing recipe ideas. But the 2 ingredient Icecream I made tasted only like cream not “ice cream”. I used whipping cream and store bought condensed milk. What do you think went wrong .
Would really appreciate your feed back as I want to try more flavours.
Love

Hi Gemma thank you for this ice cream recipe. It works beautifully and so far I’ve added blackcurrants just softened in the microwave, not sweetened, and the same with gooseberries. Both are delicious. Do you have a recipe for coffee ice cream and one for salted caramel? I think these are my favourite.

Hi Gemma – you have inspired me as your recipe for cones came up on FB – I am totally hooked! 2 questions – (I am in UK), do I buy whipping cream or double cream (which can go took thick if not careful). And if I just want to use fruit to add should this be fresh fruit – eg. strawberries? Thanks so much Gemma.

Instead of melting chocolate, can I just use Nutella? Also, is vanilla base just the ice cream base or is it separate? Thank You!

Can you come up with a recipe for Wavy Gravy? I’ve signed petitions to bring it back but I don’t think it’s going to happen.
