Creamy Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe
The texture of this amazing ice cream rivals store-bought in my opinion! I love the smooth creaminess of this dessert, knowing that it is made with healthy, nourishing ingredients as well!
9 pastured egg yolks
6 c. grass-fed milk
1 c. sucanat or rapadura
1/2 c. raw honey
1/4-1/2 tsp. unrefined sea salt
2 T.pure vanilla extract
2 c. good quality cream (not ultra-pasteurized)
Place milk in a saucepan along with sugar, honey, and salt and start heating. Whip egg yolks for several minutes until thick, pale, and increased in volume. Slowly dribble in some of the hot milk to temper egg yolks, then add the warmed yolks to the rest of the milk. Cook for several minutes, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and add cream and vanilla. Chill completely and then freeze according to ice cream maker's instructions. Transfer to another container and place in freezer to harden. Enjoy as is, or with fresh fruit and homemade chocolate fudge sauce!
