Krispy Kreme Ice Cream

Krispy Kreme Ice Cream - homemade ice cream with chopped up Krispy Kreme doughnuts. SOOO good!!

I finally pulled out my ice cream maker to celebrate National Ice Cream Month!  My inspiration for this ice cream comes from FLIP Burger Boutique here in Birmingham.  FLIP has great burgers but even better milkshakes!  The first milkshake we tried at FLIP was the Krispy Kreme milkshake and it was heaven!  I knew right then and there that I would be making Krispy Kreme ice cream at home.

I used a vanilla ice cream for the base and stirred in chopped doughnuts.  The results were amazing!  I don’t how you could go wrong with ice cream and Krispy Kreme doughnuts!   SO, what are you waiting for – run out and get some Krispy Kreme’s and make this ice cream ASAP!
