Indulge in the delicate and light texture of our vanilla honey ice cream, sweetened with the perfect amount of natural honey to achieve a fluffy and irresistible sweetness.
Alright, it’s no secret I love ice cream. But I think for every interesting, fun flavor you need a solid base. Because with a solid base, you can create anything you want. Add any kind of candy or syrup and go wild with your creations.
This recipe is a fantastic base to add goodies, but I also think it is incredible on its own. It’s light, fluffy and packed with flavor. The combination of the honey and vanilla almost makes it taste like a malt.
And here’s something worth noting; when I use vanilla in my recipes, especially ones where the vanilla taste is important, like ice cream and cheesecake, I use double vanilla. It goes by many names – the packages will usually say things like “twice as strong”, “baker’s vanilla”, “double strength”, etc. Or you can use a homemade version (I have one for you in the works!).
It just gives recipes that extra something – once I tried it I could never go back!
For this recipe, you’ll need an ice cream maker. After churning, this ice cream should be an incredible soft serve consistency. I like to freeze it to get a harder, fluffy ice cream.
