Meghan from CosmoCookie posted this unusual recipe of ice cream. I would have never thought to use beets in an ice cream or combining them with poppy seeds. But I did tried to create one unique recipe using poppy seeds and this is Poppy Seed Macarons. This ice cream definitely made me curious of its taste as the color is amazing. Click here to see the recipe>>

4. Basil Mint Ice Cream

These 2 ingredients are quite usual for me, I use them a lot, especially during the summer. Even though I probably wouldn’t have thought to use them in an summer ice cream recipe. I use mint for dessert, tea, soup, some side dishes or cocktails like this Summer Tea Cocktail I did recently. I use basil mostly on side or main dishes like this Penne with Mushroom Bolognese, not so much into a dessert. Jen from Savory Simple  used these two ingredients in a very pleasant way and shared with us his ice cream recipe. Click here to see the recipe>>

5. Green Tea Ice Cream– MATCHA Ice Cream
