Homemade Raw Milk Ice Cream Recipe

Course: Dessert

This is truly a homemade ice cream recipe, we use most of the ingredients in their raw form and from local sources. We use raw milk and raw cream from our local herd share, raw honey from local bees and a little pure Bourbon vanilla extract, and voila, delicious summer coolness and a flavor that seems like the essence of goodness.



  • 2 cups raw cream
  • 1 cup raw milk
  • 1/3 cup raw honey
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract okay, this ingredient is not homemade, we use store-bought Bourbon Vanilla - great taste!


  1. Pour 1 cup fresh raw milk into a medium size mixing bowl.

  2. Add 1/3 cup honey, using a honey spool and drizzling it over the liquid in thin strands, Or measuring out into a dry 1/3 cup measure and pouring it into the bowl while you move the bowl or your hand around to get it to cover a large surface area of the bowl and not all land in one place.
  3. The fresher the honey the more liquid it is and the more easily it will work in the recipe.
  4. Whisk with a wire whisk as the honey is added, and keep whisking.

  6. Add the vanilla, and whisk again, gently until well combined.
  7. Taste for sweetness. If you want it sweeter, add a little more honey and continue whisking.
  8. Pour all the liquid into your ice cream maker.

  9. Put the top on to lock the spindle in place. Turn it on for about 20 minutes or until ice cream begins to firm up nicely. It will still be soft, because the cream's high butterfat content keeps it from getting too hard.
