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!

Homemade Ben & Jerry’s Strawberry Cheesecake: Cheesecake ice cream, Strawberries, thick Graham cracker swirl

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.
