Raw Milk Ice Cream

The accountant LOVES ice cream. I was shocked when we first got married at how much he would actually eat when I bought it. So...I quite buying it. Why? It was expensive to buy the healthy stuff and the bigger the container I bought the more we would eat. When I noticed my milk allergy I switched to buying those expensive little coconut ice cream containers. SO not worth the price either! A few months ago we were in Costco and noticed the ice cream makers were on sale for $26 dollars. We splurged and bought one. I doubt we will ever return to store bought ice cream. I haven't perfected the coconut milk ice cream yet so I am only going to share with you the raw milk ice cream (raw milk doesn't seem to affect me the same way as the pasteurized, the casein protein is more broken down.) I and the accountant and Olivia adore homemade ice cream. Here is our recipe:

  • Ingredients: 3 1/2 cups of raw milk mixed with raw cream (the more cream you use the creamier the ice cream, we tried a batch last night of pure cream ice cream. It was heavenly. We won't think about the calories!)
  • 3 pastured egg yolks (you can omit the eggs if you don't want to eat raw eggs, it just won't be as thick)
  • 2 Tablespoons of organic vanilla extract (less if you like less vanilla flavor)
  • 1/2 cup of rapadura (raw cane sugar, mix in a  magicbullet or food processor for a finer grain.)

Directions: First grind up rapadura to a finer texture.

Our new beloved
cuisinart ice cream maker.

 Then in a medium size bowl place all ingredients and mix together thoroughly.

 Remove the ice cream container from the freezer at the last possible moment. Then pour in the ingredients. (This recipe is good for a one quart ice maker.)

 Yum! Look at the ice cream beginning to form.
 This is the end product.
 These are my yummy organic strawberries from Fred Meyer (2 pounds for 5 dollars)
Yum!! We shared this bowl between the three of us. Olivia kept begging for more. Great nutrition for the little one growing inside me! I will share a perfected coconut milk ice cream recipe sometime next week.

  1. Great I was searching online for a ice cream recipe like the one I just made & then I was gonna ask about the raw egg yolks in relation to being pregnant. You've got me totally covered here :-) thx for writing about yourself here. I know my ingredients are the highest quality & I wash the eggs before cracking, so I must be ok to eat the raw stuff even if I'm pregnant ! Thx!
