    Cuisinart Fruit Scoop Frozen Dessert Maker

    This ice cream maker creates healthful desserts using only crushed fruit; change the paddle, and it makes traditional ice cream and frozen yogurt, too. As with many modern ice cream makers, it uses an insulated bowl that you freeze for 24 hours before using; if you need more spontaneity, you can buy a second bowl so there’s always one at the ready.

    Hello, My Name is Ice Cream

    Author Dana Cree geeks out on the science of ice cream, explaining how you can manipulate ingredients and methods to create ice cream just the way you like it. But even if science is not your thing, this book delights with the recipes, from basics like chocolate, vanilla, and coffee to the more unusual Cinnamon Basil. Cree also covers Philadelphia-style ice cream (made without eggs and, unbeknownst to most, the prevailing style sold in the United States), sherbet, and frozen yogurt.

    Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Bean Paste

    Nothing says real, pure homemade vanilla ice cream like the enticing visual flair of real vanilla bean specks against the cream. Nielsen-Massey’s Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Bean Paste combines the best of both bean and extract with no scraping of beans required. It has the consistency of a thick syrup and holds thousands of tiny seeds (all the goodness inside a vanilla bean pod) in suspension.

    Joseph Joseph Non-Drip Ice Cream Scoop

    Designed with neatness in mind, this scoop from Joseph Joseph can stand upright so that it won’t get ice cream on your counter, while a silicone collar at the top of the handle catches drips. The dimpled surface of the scoop helps the ice cream release more easily.
