Updated: Apr 19

Delicious and Sophisticated Flavors. This would taste delightful in a Sparkling Wine Punch.


Who said, ice cream is only for kids? At Vickie's Bees, we say, " We all scream for ice cream!"

You Can't Buy This - You Just Gotta Make It, but It's Easy Bee-sy!

We developed this signature recipe for entertaining wedding and event planners at our Palm Harbor Honeybee Apiary. We were looking for a delicate recipe that would be light on the palate and pretty for a party. Here is our recipe for Vickie's Bees Lavender Honey Ice Cream. So good - You're Going to Love It.


Vickie's Bees Honey Lavender Ice Cream


Ingredients

  • 1/3 Cup Vickie's Bees Lavender Honey

  • 1/2 Teaspoon Dried Edible/Food Grade Dried Lavender Flowers

  • 1 Quart Half and Half (We Used Almond/Coconut Milk from Sprouts)

  • 1 14 Ounce Can Sweetened Condensed Milk

  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract (We added Imported Madagasgar Vanilla Beans for more depth of flavor, but you don't have to)

  • Optional: Violet Gel Food Coloring (We Used Watkins Food Coloring with No Artifical Dyes and 100% Natural Vegetable Juices and Spices From Sprouts)

  • Optional: Whipped Topping

  • Optional: Organic Blackberries


Directions

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine half and half and condensed milk. Whisk together.

  2. Let Mixture sit to room temperature (just not cold or the honey won't blend).

  3. Blend in Vickie's Bees Lavender Honey. Whisk until smooth and well mixed.

  4. Grind half of the Lavender flower into a powder. Sprinkle into the liquid mixture a little bit at time - to taste. You may not need it all. Adding too much will cause your flavor palate to taste soapy. Add slowly and taste it as you go.

  5. Add optional food gel to get a Lavender color (Red and Blue=Purple)

  6. Pour into Ice Cream Maker (We Purchased An Eletric One from Amazon). Follow manufacturers instructions for your machine.

  7. Allow the Ice Cream to "set up" or get firm in the freezer - until It reaches "scooping" consistency

  8. Serve with or without Berries and Cream

  9. Enjoy

Note: After your yummy Lavender Ice Cream has been in the freezer a day or two you may need to let it sit on the kitchen counter for a bit before it softens enough to scoop.
