Don't Store Avocado Like This: It's Dangerous A recipe list of ice cream on a stick for all tastes to be prepared with and without ice cream maker

Summer synonym of gelato and preparing it at home is one of the simplest things if you have an ice cream maker that allows you to do everything in just over half an hour. But even if you don't have it available, arm yourself with cold ingredients from the fridge, blender and sticks. Yes, because if there is one simple and delicious thing that everyone can agree on and make the children really happy, it is ice cream on a stick, at home as in an ice cream parlor, where they now find all tastes and shapes.

In short, ice creams are very simple to prepare at home and it is the good excuse to choose the flavors and variants that you like best and to obtain completely natural products and free of artificial dyes. To sweeten yours do-it-yourself ice cream, for example, you can choose alternatives such as stevia, rice malt or the Maple syrup, but if among the ingredients you will use the ripe fruit, there probably won't even be a need for further sweetening.

As for the shape to give to your ice cream, there are special molds on the market, but this is also the right opportunity for reuse the wooden sticks of the popsicles previously eaten and maybe even the yoghurt pots. Generally, stick ice creams are prepared with the same procedure as normal ice cream, but you will have to remember to insert the wooden toothpick inside the ice cream before it solidifies completely. For this reason, you can start checking your popsicles about an hour after placing them in the freezer.

Here are 10 recipes you can take inspiration from.
