Just because summer is coming to an end doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy ice cream. 

I love making homemade ice cream year-round. It’s such a fun food to enjoy for a special treat. During the summertime, I am all about fresh, seasonal fruit ice creams, like strawberry lemonade and blackberry honey. But as the summer comes to an end, I tend to prefer light ice cream versions like concord grape sherbet, carrot cinnamon frozen yogurt and herbal tea ice creams.

Herbal iced tea is so perfect + refreshing during the summer, right? Well, so are delicate herbal tea ice creams. They are more of an ice milk or sherbet. Like a combination of ice cream + sorbet. Super delicious!

Chamomile Mint Lavender Ice Cream | Delicious Obsessions

My Little Love really enjoys this Chamomile Mint Lavender Ice Cream, and I have no problem serving her a large bowl. It’s a great way to get some herbal teas into your little ones. Plus, chamomile and lavender are calming herbal flowers. And mint is so lovely for digestion. The three together make the most delicious flavor.

I love the idea of sipping on some herbal tea in the afternoon to help settle down and let the stressors of the day go. Sounds great, right? I also love, love, love the idea of having herbal tea ice cream after dinner to relax and settle down for the night. What’s not to love?

Chamomile Mint Lavender Ice Cream | Delicious Obsessions

This Chamomile Mint Lavender Ice Cream is so easy to make. You don’t even need a blender to mix up the ingredients. Steep the tea for 15 minutes, let it cool, mix in some honey + cream {or coconut milk} and you’re good to go. Just pour the fragrant ice cream mixture into your ice cream maker and in under 30 minutes you’ll have an amazing + refreshing ice cream.

Take some time for you, sit back, relax and enjoy this unique ice cream.

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. In a small saucepan, bring water to a low boil. Add chamomile, mint and lavender. COVER and steep for 15 minutes. Using a fine-mesh strainer, stain tea into large measuring cup, mason jar or container.
  2. Let tea cool to room temperature. To speed up the process, you can place it in the refrigerator. Once tea is cooled to room temperature, add the raw honey. Stir to combine.
  3. Add the vanilla extract, sea salt and cream to the tea mixture.
  4. Prepare ice cream maker. Turn ice cream maker on and pour ice cream mixture into the ice cream maker. Churn according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  5. Ice cream will start to have a “soft serve” texture {mine takes about 20 minutes}. Serve immediately or freeze until desired consistency. Use a wooden spoon to transfer ice cream to a large airtight freezer safe container. Make sure to lick the spoon when you’re done!

Want to Learn How to Make Your Own Ice Cream Perfection At Home?

I’ve got you covered in my best-selling eBook, The Splendid Scoop and Other Frozen Treats: Delicious and Easy Dairy-Free Recipes, Plus Tips and Tricks for Homemade Ice Cream Perfection!

When the weather gets warm, nothing is more delicious than a bowl of cold ice cream or a delicious frozen treat. But, when you’re on a restricted diet, finding treats that are suitable for your needs can be tricky. Plus, what happens when you want to make ice cream, but don’t own an ice cream maker? Can you still make tasty treats without all the special equipment?

Yes! You can!

That is why I created The Splendid Scoop and Other Frozen Treats eBook! I, myself, am on a restricted diet for health reasons and when the weather starts warming up over 65 F, I start to get cranky. ? I am definitely a cool weather gal and one way to keep me sane and satisfied during the height of summer is knowing that I can make something delicious, at home, using healthy ingredients that fit my lifestyle.

All of the recipes in this book are dairy, grain, and gluten free. They can easily be modified for the autoimmune protocol as well, making them extra special for those on super restricted diets.

In The Splendid Scoop and Other Frozen Treats eBook, You Will Learn:

  • Why making your own ice cream and frozen treats at home is better than buying them at the store (even the organic ones!).
  • Tips and tricks for homemade ice cream success.
  • How to make ice cream without an ice cream maker (it’s easier than you think!).
  • Delicious dairy-free recipes the whole family will love (recipes are also gluten and free and can easily be adapted for the autoimmune protocol as well).
  • Extensive resource suggestions for real food, wellness, and beyond.

Don’t let another summer or special occasion pass you by. No longer will you have to watch your friends and family indulge on their favorite frozen treats while you sit on the sidelines due to your dietary restrictions.

Now you can enjoy creamy, delicious, and allergen-friendly frozen treats once again with The Splendid Scoop.
