Let’s brighten up this gloomy week with some delicious ice cream. My Favorite flavor right now is Honey-Lavender. The best one I found at Jeni’s in Calabasas, it is sooo good. I always loved ice cream and sometimes I skip lunch or dinner and have just ice cream instead… the BEST!
I found a recipe for my favorite flavor this summer. Independence Day is coming up soon and this would make the perfect desert for family and friends.
Here is what you need (makes 6 – 8 scoops)
- 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1 1/2 cups whole or 2% milk
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons dried culinary lavender
Add the heavy cream, milk, honey and lavender to a medium saucepan set over medium heat. Bring the mixture to steaming. Stir occasionally.
Check to see that the honey is completely dissolved into the cream and then remove the pan from the heat. Allow it to rest at room temperature for 15 minutes. Using a fine-mesh sieve, strain the lavender cream and discard the solids. Chill the mixture for 1 hour and then freeze it in an ice-cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Voila – that’s it. So easy and sooo good! Let me know how it turned out!
