      I made this yesterday with a variation – cherries and ground vanilla in place of the blackberries. Absolute heaven! I agree with other folks that the honey could easily be reduced without sacrificing flavor or enjoyment. This is my first time making raw dairy ice cream and it’s the best-tasting thing to ever come out of my ice cream machine. Thank you!

      YEAH!! I finally found an ice cream recipe with only “Raw” ingredients and no cooking involved. I just got an ice cream maker for my birthday and can’t wait to start making some delicious raw milk ice cream starting with this recipe! Much thanks!!

      Tried the berry ice cream after trying the mint one and it came out so well . I did really like the vanilla bean that was in the mint one so I added that to the berry version here.

      does anyone have trouble mixing honey in when the milk/cream is cold?? i find that honey doesn’t mix well when added to something cold or is that just me?? so i’ve been adding maple syrup instead.
