Honey Lavender Ice Cream | A light refreshing ice cream perfect for Spring or Summer. Make this delicious floral treat for a tea, bridal shower, baby shower or ladies luncheon. Lavender flowers add a gourmet touch to this homemade ice cream.
Why Honey Lavender Ice Cream? Well…..because I just watched It’s Complicated for the (I don’t want to admit) time and had to make my own. If I owned a bakery/store it would look exactly like Jane Adler’s (Meryl Streep). Perfectly bright, fun and full of delicious treats that my customers wouldn’t be able to live without. So…since that’s not going to happen I created this Honey Lavender Ice Cream that even Jane Adler would be proud to serve!
For this recipe I used dried Lavender. Using dried vs fresh. If you have fresh lavender in your garden you can use it but be aware that fresh is not as potent as dried. You’ll need to use more and maybe mortar and pestle it a bit to release the oils. The rule of thumb with converting fresh herbs and dried herbs is 2 to 1.
