I have been a homemade ice cream-making fool this summer! I’m making it so often that I’m running out of room to store it. So, if you’re in my neck of the woods, stop by and I’ll treat you to your own personal ice cream parlor. While I make homemade ice cream all year ’round, it’s more seldom in the colder months. So in the summer, all bets are off, and I don’t even feel guilty making batch after batch of it. It’s so good, and the best part is that you know exactly what’s in it. Fresh milk, cream, eggs and sugar are all you need!

Today, I’m sharing homemade fruity toppings that can be used on any homemade or store-bought ice cream. These Strawberry-Mint, Blackberry-Ginger and Mango-Vanilla compotes work best on classic vanilla ice cream, but would be pretty good on a scoop of chocolate or caramel, too. All of these can be made with fresh or frozen fruit, take just a few minutes to prepare, and can be stored in the fridge for up to a week. Stay cool!
