  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon dried culinary lavender
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the heavy cream, whole milk, and dried lavender. Heat the mixture over medium heat until it begins to simmer. Remove from heat and let the lavender steep for 10 minutes.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar until pale and creamy.
  3. Slowly pour the warm lavender-infused cream into the egg mixture, whisking constantly to prevent curdling.
  4. Return the mixture to the saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens and coats the back of a spoon. This should take about 5-7 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat and stir in the honey and vanilla extract. Allow the mixture to cool completely.
  6. Once cooled, strain the mixture to remove the lavender buds. Press down with a spoon to extract as much flavor as possible.
  7. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer's instructions. This usually takes 20-30 minutes.
  8. Transfer the churned ice cream into an airtight container and freeze for at least 4 hours or until firm.
  9. Serve the lavender honey ice cream in your favorite dessert bowls or cones. Enjoy!
