Make mom a delicious homemade ice cream recipe for Mother’s Day. This easy homemade ice cream recipe is perfect for kids to make but with a fun lavender and honey flavor mom will love. Don’t forget to add sprinkles and Horizon Snack Grahams for the perfect topping.
About 5 years ago I tried honey lavender gelato at a little ice cream shop near San Diego. I wasn’t quite sure if I would like it, but it was too intriguing to pass up. To this day I still remember how amazing it tasted. Using my 3 ingredient homemade ice cream recipe as a base, I made this delicious honey lavender ice cream at home. It’s easy enough that the kids can jump in and help out.
I let the kids measure into bowls and then we pour the ingredients in as we need them. It helps to keep an oops measurements under control. I love how simple the ingredients are for this homemade ice cream recipe. You need heavy cream (I used Horizon Organic), sweetened condensed milk, honey and lavender essential oils.
Whip up the cream in a stand mixer or using a hand held mixer. My kids love watching the cream evolve from liquid to whipped cream. Once the cream is whipped, gently mix in the rest of the ingredients. You don’t need much lavender oil. Just take a toothpick and get a little on the end and mix that in. Even one drop is pretty strong for this small batch so start with a little and add more to taste.
I bought this fun ice cream tub last summer when I started making homemade ice cream like crazy. I love it! But any freezer proof container will work just fine. Just spread the ice cream mix in and level it out.
Freeze for about 24 hours or until the ice cream is set. I added lavender sprinkles since the ice cream looks like vanilla. You will want to eat this within a day or so as it tastes best when fresh. I topped the ice cream with purple sprinkles and Horizon Snack Grahams in honey. The Horizon crackers are great additions for some crunch and more honey flavor to your sundaes. Plus they are just too cute! You could also top homemade peach ice cream or homemade vanilla ice cream with the snack grahams for a more traditional ice cream treat.
