Ice cream often evokes memories of slurping cones on the beach in summer, or for some, melted messes not eaten soon enough. Mixed into milkshakes, eaten in a ‘sandwich’ or served in a single scoop, this delightful dessert is most likely to have a fond place in just about everybody’s heart — and stomach.

Whether frozen with liquid nitrogen, reinvented without dairy or taking a DIY tack, this is ice cream, but not as we know it.
