We have something very exciting to share with you : we have made the yummiest lavender honey ice cream! It is creamy, delicious and bursting with the flavors of lavender and honey! We love everything lavender in our home, from lavender handsoaps to lavender drops in the vacuum cleaner that perfume our home’s air (try it – seriously it works like a charm!) and we had been planning to make lavender honey ice cream for some time. Last week as températures rose in Paris and all of Paris was sleeping with 4 fans around their beds (haha – yes, this is how we deal with heat in Paris! AC is yet to have really arrived… 😉 ), we decided it was the perfect time to get started making our lavender honey ice cream treat!
You only need a handful of ingredients to make this fabulous ice cream. You most likely already have most of them in your home. You will need milk, plain yogurt, cream, honey, brown sugar and dried lavender. We use our Kitchenaid KICA ice cream maker to make ice cream as it creates the perfectly smoothe and creamy texture we love.
The scent of lavender evokes images of beautiful lavender fields in Provence, rosé, sun kissed cheeks and romantic evenings. You are sure to be swept away on a romantic daydream as you prepare this delightful ice cream concoction. It is the perfect treat for a romantic evening with your special someone or as a light and refreshing dessert for the whole family. It is also sure to wow your guests if you are planning a Summer dinner party. You will want to eat this ice cream without hesitation all Summer long!
Please make it now and let us know what you think!
