16 Weirdly Delicious Savory Ice Cream Recipes That Will Make You Drool
When we think of ice creams, most of us think about the sweet stuff. You might be envisioning a massive cheesecake-flavored cone drizzled with caramel and decorated with all of the chocolaty trimmings. Or maybe you're picturing a cone piled high with scoops of cotton candy and bubblegum. And if you're anything like me, you're probably drooling at the mere thought of these treats. As delicious as sweet ice creams may be, you're missing out if you haven't tried savory ice cream.
A savory ice cream might sound slightly gross. After all, ice cream is traditionally meant to be a dessert, a sweet snack or a reward for forcing down all of those healthy foods. However, savory ice creams can actually be as mind-blowing as sweet ones. They still have the refreshing taste, but they open up our minds, and our palates, to entirely new flavor combinations.
Luckily, there's no need to go to some swanky restaurant to try your first savory ice cream. You can make it at home. If you don't have one, you can pick up a relatively inexpensive ice cream maker to whip up your savory concoctions. A few homemade ice creams will make you realize just how good the fresh stuff tastes. Furthermore, they will also show you how much you're overpaying for that $6 beach ice cream cone.
Try one of these 16 refreshing savory ice cream recipes on a hot day and you will be a savory ice cream convert. Promise. And if you still want to have your sweet cone after your savory one, we're not going to judge you.
