It is so worth it!! I've made it (coconut milk and honey) and have had others say they will not eat any other kind of ice cream ever again

you all inspired me...we made our first batch of raw icecream (vanilla) yesterday.

What recipe are y'all using for vanilla? I have a FoodTV recipe that's amazing that I've done before but it cooks the eggs and milk to a custard and it uses 24 yolks!!! I can't bear to use the 11 pastured eggs I have on one dish!! They are hard to get and if my farmer has enough, I get 12. I couldn't bear to use (if I could get) 24 of my "gold" eggs???? yikes!
i hear ya on the golden eggs. we're getting 1-2 eggs per day from 15 hens right now so we just made a basic vanilla (sugar, vanilla, cream and milk). thre rich, eggy recipes will have to wait for longer days.

'Philadelphia' style vanilla

2 cups cream
1 cup milk
heat till getting bubbly
stir in 1/2 cup sugar (my recipe calls for 2/3+ cup but the cream is so rich and sweet i cut it down)
cool a little, add 2 tsp vanilla extract
(to make coffee ice cream, put ground coffee beans in w/ the milk, and let it brew in the hot milk for as long as you want (I do maybe 10 mins), filter it out and proceed as directed. but, it is not for the 9pm sugar craving, you will be up till 1am!)

yum!

i would love to sub my sugar for raw honey, anyone know the ratio for this?

Thanks for the recipe - sounds yummy !

One ques... do you have to heat it ? Would rather not, then it's raw ice cream with all the good enzymes, etc

i do heat it, i haven't tried it w/o heating, maybe if i have extra milk/cream(never happens!) i'll try... you would def have to heat it for coffee of course.

recipes! recipes! recipes! the pregnant woman needs some icecream!

with my last preg, I craved icecream so bad. Atleast this time I can eat it and feel good about it! (homemade raw ice cream of course) so glad i hung on to that ice cream maker i got for a wedding present 8 years ago, and haven't used till now. my only problem is it makes over a gallon. it's hard to find room in my freezer for that much. also, it gets really hard after awhile. how do you fix this?

Can you make ice cream without an ice cream maker?
post #30 of 54
No, you really need an ice cream maker. It aerates it. Totally different consistency--think spoon vs. chisel.

I would think w/the raw milk, I would heat it no higher than 110 degrees just to get the honey to melt and mix w/the milk. That way it is still raw (but then you freeze it anyway).

I don't have a recipe, perse, for my coconut ice cream. I open 2 1/2 cans of Native Forest full fat coconut milk and heat it over the stove w/honey to taste. I then put the pot in the fridge to cool and once it is cool, I add it to the ice cream maker and follow the directions. That's it.

Bumping to request more recipes, please.

ETA: I found this recipe on: http://www.theheartofnewengland.com/food-0404.html
It doesn't require any preheating, which could be a great thing to preserve all those good enzymes and flora.

Vanilla Ice Cream

(I have a small Cuisinart electric ice cream maker).

1 c. whole “raw” milk, well chilled
¾ c. sugar
2 c. heavy cream (I use “raw” cream -- another ‘white gold’)
2 t. vanilla

Whisk all ingredients until sugar is dissolved. Pour into ice
cream maker and mix until thickened, about 25-30 minutes.

Recipe for vanilla ice cream:

2 cups cream
1 cup whole milk

(you can use all cream if you have it, or adjust the amounts to what you like)

1/2 cup sugar or maple syrup
1-2 tsp. vanilla

Mix thoroughly, and freeze in your ice cream freezer.

You can add chopped blueberries, strawberries, peaches, etc. for variety. Break chocolate sandwich cookies (we like the newman o's) for cookies and cream.

Very easy and delicious.

Yet if you'd added butter and maple syrup they wouldn't bat an eyelash, and that wouldn't even have the eggs in it for extra protein.

I use 1/2 as much honey as sugar in baking.

my sister gets the fermented honey from Really Raw, and says it tastes better in ice cream because the fermentation process changes some of the fructose to glucose, so it tastes more like regular sugar and less like that distinctive honey flavor. One of these days I plan to try this myself instead of maple syrup. Then my icecream will be almost 100% raw (except the vanilla extract... I should try the soaking a vanilla bean thing...)

Yep, I'm goofy for eating ice cream for breakfast while they eat those healthy bowls of cereal with soy milk on top.
Laughin' my way to good health...

I just made blueberry ice cream today. It was very good. I made my regular vanilla flavor, then added chopped frozen blueberries in the last few minutes.

Not too much left at this point.

I have some chocolate ice cream in my ice cream maker right now Hubby and I keep sneaking out spoonfuls

In a small saucepan, I heated up some honey and cocoa powder. I used a whisk and whisked it till there were no lumps. I then opened up my 2 cans of coconut milk and mixed them until they were incorporated. Put in fridge to cool and once cool, put in ice cream maker. I also just added a T of vanilla for fun

It is so freakin' good.

Now that chocolate coconut milk ice cream sounds DELISH!!!!! I just bought more coconut milk so I can make more ice cream tomorrow. Not sure what I'm making exactly yet, but we finished the first batch already so it's time for more.
