Honey Vanilla Ice Cream

posted in Desserts, Main Dishes |

Lisa’s first attempt at making ice cream with her new toy worked out really well. She made a honey vanilla-bean ice cream that made us all very happy. This recipe came from… well, the manual for the ice cream maker. 🙂

I scream…

Cathy says:

You scream…

Chris says:

We all scream…

Lisa says:

…for ice cream!

(Okay, we really didn’t say that, but this is a week later and I can’t remember what was said, other than…)

Everyone says:


(Oh, and….)

Lisa says:

So rich!


Honey Vanilla Ice Cream
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup vanilla soy milk
1/4 cup honey
1 vanilla bean, split
2 egg yolks

Heat the cream, soy milk, vanilla bean, and honey in a heavy-bottomed sauce pan, stirring occasionally until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is hot. Place the egg yolks in a bowl and whisk briefly. Still whisking, slowly pour in about 1/2 cup of the hot liquid. When the mixture is smooth, slowly pour it back into the saucepan, whisking constantly. Cook over medium heat, whisking, until the mixture thickens slightly and coats the back of a spoon, about 6 minutes. Scrape the seeds from the beans into the base. Strain into a bowl and cool.

Use this base in your ice cream maker.

Makes 1 pint
