Summer is quickly approaching, and that means hot weather, big fat thunderstorms, and days spent next to some kind of body of water; be it ocean, lake, or pool. It is my favorite season, and not just because my birthday happens to be in summer…oh no, I am all about those delicious frozen treats! Bring on the popsicles, ice cream, smoothies, and of course this super amazing blueberry mint sorbet. Hellooooooooo yummy!

Center Stage: Blueberry Mint Sorbet with A Simple Pantry

I’ve been feeling deprived lately, because I swear, every time I go to the store, the price of my fave frozen treats is higher and higher and higher again. So I don’t buy it. I get cookies instead, and feel sad because I miss my ice cream. It’s a tragedy, I’m certain of it.

But! There is hope! And it’s amazing. Make your very own frozen treats at home using the Hamilton Beach 1.5 Quart Ice Cream Maker. Seriously, it’s so easy, and you end up saving tons of money making your own ice cream, while simultaneously eliminating all those weird ingredients you can’t even pronounce that are found in store-bought frozen treats.

Orange sherbet? Mango frozen yogurt? Super fudgy supreme chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream? How about all of the above?!

What I love most about this blueberry mint sorbet is how flavorful it is while being super simple. With only a few ingredients, it whips up in just 40 minutes. Hello, awesome? To get that subtle touch of mint flavor, I infused simple syrup with fresh mint, then combined it with blueberry juice, fresh squeezed lime, and water. That’s it!

Because of the high water content in sorbets, sometimes it’s necessary to add a tablespoon or two of liqueur to prevent it from freezing completely. I didn’t feel that this recipe needed any liqueur, but if you prefer a softer sorbet, add a tablespoon of Chambord.

Patriotic Neapolitan Ice Cream from @hamiltonbeach

The season of cookouts, pool parties and patriotic commemorations begins on Memorial Day weekend as we remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice while serving our country. We decorate our porch railings with American flag bunting and festive swags as friends and family make their way over for a day of themed parties and food to match. This important day informally marks the beginning of summer in our minds, as grills fire up and cook everything from burgers to chicken to steak.

On the 4th of July, we celebrate again as we watch fireworks, post photos of pretty much any food donned with festive flag favors, and grill all-American hot dogs. Then comes Labor Day, the grand finale of summer. We celebrate one last patriotic holiday before we pull the grill back in the garage, where it sits until next year’s rotation of potluck parties featuring red, white and blue trifles.

Patriotic Neapolitan Ice Cream from @hamiltonbeach

This year, we wanted to shake up the traditional red, white and blue dishes with something fun, creative and delicious, so we created an impressive patriotic Neapolitan ice cream using strawberry, vanilla and blueberry flavors. A little extra food coloring goes a long way in creating the perfect colors of the American flag in three simple layers that will wow everyone at your party.

Patriotic Neapolitan Ice Cream from @hamiltonbeach

Just make one flavor at a time in your ice cream maker. Freeze and then top with the next layer. When you’re finished, pop the ice cream loaf out of the mold and cut it into pieces to serve. This unique patriotic play on the traditional Neapolitan ice cream is a fun dessert for Memorial Day, the 4th of July or Labor Day. And if you switch up the flavors and colors, you can use this recipe technique for any holiday, baby shower, bridal shower or birthday party!

Non-Dairy Peach Frozen Dessert from Everyday Good Thinking makes for a perfect healthy vegan treat! @hamiltonbeach

It’s August and chances are it’s hot where you are. Ice cream, sorbet, gelato, sherbet or frozen yogurt are churning in ice cream makers across the country, because nothing says late summer refreshment like a frozen dessert. But if you’re trying to stay beach-ready or have to deal with certain dietary restrictions, you might want to steer clear of fatty, sugary desserts and opt for something a little lighter. That’s where this dairy-free peach frozen “yogurt” comes in.

Luckily, peaches are plentiful this time of year, and they add a lot of natural sweetness to the fro-yo. You’ll only need to add a little bit of sugar.

All of these light, fresh ingredients mean the natural flavor of the peach can really shine through in this non-dairy peach frozen yogurt. You’ll want to come back to it again and again all summer – and if you freeze your peach slices, you can come back to it all year long!

Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

When you have a little extra time to make ice cream from scratch and the kids want to help out, this is your go-to recipe for that special treat. This rich and creamy ice cream is reminiscent of custard and tastes like a decadent strawberry cheesecake. Despite its sinfully delicious disguise, this ice cream is easy to pull together and looks beautiful presented on a cone or in a bowl. You could even spoon it into a graham cracker crust and freeze it to make an ice cream pie for a unique birthday cake or party dessert.

Perfect for summer! Watermelon Lime Mint Sorbet from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

Before seedless watermelons were as popular as they are now, kids used to stand in the backyard behind an imaginary line spitting watermelon seeds as far as they could. I was never a seed-spitting contest winner, but I enjoyed the summer ritual nonetheless. Sometimes I wonder if kids still have these little competitions, or if it will forever be just a fond memory.

Perfect for summer! Watermelon Lime Mint Sorbet from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

Watermelon has always been a summer fruit that carries feelings of nostalgia. There’s always a wedge of bright red watermelon in the smiling face of a child during the humid months of late summer, and there’s always leftovers being bundled in plastic wrap and shoved in the fridge next to leftover potato salad from the last picnic.

But what about us? What about the adults? Sure, we all love a juicy watermelon wedge from time to time, but many of us would rather enjoy the ripe summer fruit in a way that didn’t stain our favorite tank tops with pink drippings.

Perfect for summer! Watermelon Lime Mint Sorbet from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

I love making watermelon sorbet because it celebrates seasonal ingredients in an unexpected way. Most people have tried berry or mango versions, so using watermelon gives sorbet an updated twist. It’s perfect for an afternoon snack, a cool after-lunch treat or a refreshing after-dinner dessert for a party.

Perfect for summer! Watermelon Lime Mint Sorbet from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

In the recipe below, we added mint and lime to the watermelon to give it a vibrant and refreshing punch. We also tried substituting other herbs (like rosemary, thyme and basil) and other citrus juices (like lemon and orange) to create interesting layers of flavor. Everyone had a different favorite, but the rosemary-mint-lemon combination was very popular.
