I am hardly ever speechless but the Lavender Honey Ice Cream I made last night left me at a total loss for words. All I can say is that THIS. IS. THE. BEST. ICE. CREAM. I. HAVE. EVER. TASTED. Period. I am not even going to try to describe the flavors or the sense of euphoria I felt after I took the first bite because no words will do this heavenly swirl justice. It is just, simply, divine.
I highly recommend that you get yourself a copy of David Lebovitz’s The Perfect Scoop immediately, go purchase a lavender plant and a delicious local honey, in addition to the other ingredients this recipe calls for, and make yourself a quart of this ice cream in your kitchen … NOW (you can find the recipe online but this book is so worth every penny)! Don’t let the fact that you don’t own an ice cream maker stop you from trying this out, if that’s the case for you. You can simply freeze the mixture and enjoy it like a regular ice cream after a day or so. The mixture is soft enough that you can scoop it like a regular ice cream. Or better yet, just inject it directly to your vein. That’s even better.
This ice cream is definitely best when paired with the movie, “It’s Complicated.” (If you haven’t already noticed, I am obsessed with this flick.) If you remember, this is the ice cream that Meryl Streep‘s character, Jane, makes when she can’t sleep. This recipe is so amazing, it too might keep you up all night.
what! i had no idea you can actually eat lavender!
I know! It’s is pretty surprising to learn that lavenders are actually edible. I think you have to be careful to get the edible kind, as opposed to the cosmetic kind, but I used the flowers from the lavender plants that I purchased from Trader Joe’s and everything came out wonderful. The relaxing scent of the lavender and the flavor of sweet honey made this ice cream one of a kind. I will make you some for next Satruday! You’ll be amazed at how delicious is it. And I’ll bring the movie, “It’s Complicated” so we can eat it while we watche the movie.
sounds awesome! lavender has a cleaning magic (ie. for hands etc. if you’re outdoors & can’t wash your hands, it comes in handy) so i wonder if it “cleanses” your system inside too!
robert left his chocolate ice cream in my fridge so i’m slowly taking bites out of it… he’d better come p/u soon or it’ll be GONE!
i can’t wait for chocolate froyo again too!
ice cream fun got to a WHOLE new level with your new ice cream maker.
