Real Ice Cream (Recipes)

Ice cream is pretty much a staple dessert around here. We had to get two ice cream makers to accommodate our ice cream loving family. Most people love chocolate here, but we do have a vanilla fan, too. I also like to make my ice cream with fresh goat milk and only raw honey for a weight loss friendly treat. I also don’t like to use a ton of cream in our recipe, since we have ice cream almost every night, that would be extremely expensive. We use our whole, raw milk instead. Here are our standard recipes:

Chocolate Ice Cream

for a 1/2 gallon ice cream maker

Put all ingredients into the Blendtec (or similar):

  • 5 1/2 cups raw, organic milk
  • 1 cup sucanat
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • dash of pink salt
  • 2/3 cup cocoa

Mix on first setting for 30 seconds (after mixing, I like to taste it to make sure it’s just the way I like it); follow ice cream maker’s direction to finish.

Vanilla Ice Cream

for 1/2 gallon ice cream maker

Put all ingredients into Blendtec:

  • 5 1/2 cup raw, organic milk
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 1/3 cup sucanat
  • 1 Tb real vanilla extract or 2 vanilla bean caviar
  • dash of pink salt

Mix for 30 seconds on low setting, follow ice cream maker’s directions.

Chocolate Ice Cream – goat milk and raw honey

  • 5 1/2 cups raw organic goat milk
  • 2/3 cup cocoa
  • 1/2-3/4 cup raw honey
  • dash of stevia and pink salt

Mix in blender for 30 seconds and finish off in the ice cream maker.

It’s great to have desserts that are nourishing and healthy as well as tasty. Enjoy!
