Lavender Honey Ice Cream
Indulge in the creamy and floral flavors of this delightful lavender honey ice cream. Made with heavy cream, whole milk, honey, and a touch of dried lavender flowers, this frozen treat is perfect for those who appreciate a hint of sophistication in their desserts.
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons dried lavender flowers
- 4 large egg yolks
- In a saucepan, heat the heavy cream, whole milk, honey, and dried lavender flowers over medium heat until it starts to simmer. Remove from heat and let it steep for 30 minutes.
- In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks until creamy. Slowly pour the lavender-infused cream mixture into the egg yolks, whisking constantly to prevent curdling.
- Pour the mixture back into the saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens and coats the back of a spoon. This should take about 5-7 minutes.
- Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl to remove the lavender flowers. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, making sure it touches the surface of the mixture to prevent a skin from forming. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
- Once chilled, transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer's instructions. This usually takes about 20-25 minutes.
- Transfer the churned ice cream to an airtight container and freeze for at least 4 hours or until firm.
- Serve the lavender honey ice cream in bowls or cones and garnish with fresh lavender flowers if desired.
About Sperry Honey
We really hope you enjoyed this recipe. This might be a long shot, but if you're ever in need of some premium honey for your recipes, you can always order some of our honey here. Many people don't know this, but there's a solid chance that the imported honey on your grocery store shelves contains high fructose corn syrup and artificial sweeteners. Honey producers do this to cut costs, which is gross, unhealthy, and disgusting. Our honey? Every bottle is made right here at our small apiary in North Dakota, and it's all 100% real farm honey. Appreciate you reading, and have a wonderful day :)
