10 Homemade Frozen Custard Recipes We Can’t Resist

Experience an even creamier dessert with these frozen custard recipes

You might be wondering, “isn’t that just ice cream?” Let me explain. 

Frozen custard has the same basics as ice cream, but it also has eggs. Ice cream has little to no eggs at all.

Frozen custard also tends to have a lower fat content than ice cream. This is because there are more eggs and less heavy cream

This list of frozen custard recipes is sure to help you get familiar with this dreamy dessert. 

From simple to decadent, you’re about to find your favorite frozen custard recipe. 

1. Vanilla Frozen Custard

This vanilla frozen custard is amazing. The great thing about vanilla is that it is delicious by itself and you can add almost any topping to it. 

Although some people may consider vanilla rather boring, I find it to be an exceptionally delicious flavor. It’s simple, rich, and sweet. 

I love how a good vanilla can highlight the true flavor of this frozen custard. There aren’t any distracting flavors and no overwhelming sweetness. 

This is just a good, clean, delicious vanilla-flavored frozen custard.

That being said, this makes a great base flavor to add all sorts of mix-ins. 

2. Chocolate Frozen Custard

This chocolate frozen custard brings back memories of childhood summer days.

Visions of chocolate-covered faces and running through sprinklers come rushing in. Those were the days. 

There’s something so special about frozen chocolate desserts. This recipe is velvety and rich, just the way I remember it. 

This recipe has so much chocolate flavor and the texture is divine. You won’t be able to resist a taste before it is completely done churning.

But don’t worry, I won’t tell if you don’t.

For all the chocolate lovers of the world, this chocolate frozen custard is a must!

3. Strawberry Vanilla Frozen Custard

This is not your average strawberry ice cream. This strawberry vanilla frozen custard takes it up more than a couple of notches. 

This mouthwatering custard is packed with fresh strawberries.

Plus, you can actually see the real vanilla beans floating in this dreamy concoction. 

The combination of bright strawberries and decadent vanilla beans is stunning. I love this unique combination and you will, too!

I won’t be able to have regular strawberry ice cream after this amazing frozen custard. 

4. Peanut Butter Cup Frozen Custard

This peanut butter cup frozen custard is absolutely incredible.

You might have to have somebody pry the spoon out of your hands because you won’t want to give this up. 

Peanut butter desserts are my un-guilty pleasure. I say that because peanut butter has protein, right?

This frozen custard starts with a vanilla custard base and then the fun starts.

It’s loaded with peanut butter cup pieces and swirls of salty, creamy peanut butter. 

The chocolate and peanut butter dessert we all know and love, but the rich custard somehow makes it better.

This recipe is seriously dangerous. 

5. Lemon Frozen Custard With Lavender

This lemon and lavender frozen custard is unique and delicious. This custard is smooth, creamy, and it’s a truly memorable dessert. 

This custard has a tart lemon flavor that comes from the juice and zest of Meyer lemons.

I love the flavor because it’s tart but not overpowering thanks to the Meyer lemons. 

You also need to infuse the custard with lavender. Let the flavors steep together and the cream will really absorb all of that lavender goodness. 

This frozen custard is a recipe made in heaven. 

6. Cookie Dough Frozen Custard

I love this homemade cookie dough frozen custard.

The best part about making the cookie dough and the custard from scratch?

You get to decide how big those delicious cookie dough chunks are. 

I drop this dough into the custard by the half spoonful. It’s so much better than store-bought cookie dough ice cream or custard.

This dessert is rich and delicious but still reminiscent of your favorite flavor. No more searching for the next bite of cookie dough! 

7. Cookies & Cream Frozen Custard

If Oreos are your favorite or cookies and cream ice cream is your go-to, this custard has to be on your to-do list. 

The amount of delicious chocolate cookie goodness that is in this custard is just insane. It’s chocolatey, creamy, and phenomenal. 

This frozen custard is sinfully sweet, but in all the best ways. This might be the recipe that finally cuts your ties with grocery store ice cream.

8. Orange Vanilla Frozen Custard

Remember those classic creamsicles? They have a bright orange “popsicle” texture on the outside and the inside is sweet and creamy vanilla.

Together, the two flavors make one surprisingly delicious dessert. 

This recipe is just like that, but way better. Plus, you don’t have to bite into a wooden stick halfway through it. 

I love this recipe because the orange flavor is prominent but not overpowering.

The custard is still creamy and scrumptious despite the bright, citrusy orange flavors.

9. Roasted Peach Frozen Custard

The flavor of a juicy ripe peach just screams summer to me. This roasted peach frozen custard will be your go-to all season long!

This recipe has chunks of fresh, roasted peaches. However, don’t stop there!

Before you roast those peaches, sprinkle on a little bit of brown sugar and cinnamon. 

This fruity, sweet, and cinnamon-spiced frozen custard is a fantastic way to stay cool.

I would find a way to enjoy this recipe all year long!

10. Creme Brulee Frozen Custard

Okay, I have to admit that I saved the best for last on this list. This creme brulée frozen custard is stunning. I can’t get enough. 

Creme brulée is a custard dessert to begin with, so a frozen custard just makes sense.

Instead of the crunchy caramelized sugar on top, it’s swirled into the custard. 

This custard is creamy and rich with little pockets of sweet crunchiness.

This recipe is absolutely worth any amount of effort it takes to make it. It’s a winner in my book.
