  2. Honey Lavender Ice Cream Recipe

This week, I had to throw in an especially unique ice cream (and a personal favorite). You may not think of dried lavender as a normal ingredient in the kitchen, but it is a French staple. Lavender adds such a simple and subtle flavor. And accentuated with honey, you may find this ice cream to be a new favorite.

Servings 10


  • 2 ½ cups milk (the higher the fat content, the smoother and creamier the ice cream)
  • 2 ½ cups heavy cream
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2-3 tbsp dried edible lavender
  • cup honey


  • Whisk eggs and add milk, cream, honey, and lavender. Place on stove over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve honey. When the mixture just begins to steam and simmer, remove from heat and cover. Let steep for 30 minutes.
  • Once steeped, strain through a fine-mesh strainer to remove all lavender bits. Cover and chill until completely cold. This may take up to eight hours.
  • Once chilled, freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions. My ice cream freezer takes 30 minutes.
  • Eat immediately for a soft-serve style or freeze in a deep freezer for two hours for a harder freeze.
