Lavender Honey Ice Cream!

Lavender Honey Ice Cream!

Yesterday was NATIONAL ICE CREAM DAY!  As if Americans needed a reason to celebrate Ice Cream. I’m not too much of a fan of the sweets but my crew sure is. Hence, the minion and I created a savory sweet treat to stick in their mutinous face holes.  I have always wanted to try lavender ice cream, but I never thought to use ricotta too! Then I saw Giada De Laurentiis do it and it looked sexy as fuck.  I thought it would be more time consuming than it was… but then I remembered… I HAVE A MOTHER FUCKING ICE CREAM MACHINE! Huzzah! So I dug out the Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker and we had an accord. I found several recipes for lavender ice cream but I always end up making my own version anyway…would you like to see it… well, here it is: 

……in-greed-ients:

  • 2 drops of Doterra LAVENDER essential oil (it’s cheaper if purchased through a sales rep…like myself)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk (lick spoon now)
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1/2 cup ricotta
  • electric purple food coloring- depends on how purple you want it

……..Creamy magic:

  1. Must have ice cream maker “ice pot” in the freezer for at least 24 hours prior to making ice cream
  2. mix first 5 ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat with electric mixer for 2 min
  3. add next 3 ingredients and….
  4. whip it, whip it good
  5. pour the mixture into the pot and place the churn tool in and put the lid on. Flip the switch and watch your creation come to life in 20-30 min. –

This creamy badassery gets more solid the longer it is in the freezer so if it is still a little soft serve-y just pop the “ice pot” in the freezer with cling wrap over it, for a few. Everyone has there spoon in my pot today, I can’t blame them. Even I am indulging… right after breakfast… I needed a hit. SOMEONE lost my fancy schmancy ice cream scooper so a mellon baller makes cute little balls just fine. I placed my ice cream on top of a warm chia cinnamon pancake and sprinkled it with coconut shavings and chia seeds….. because cones are for kids. I am a grown ass wench and have pallet needs that have surpassed my crews.  So get creative and make it your own! Savy?!
