Happy 4th of July!! And a delicious, HEALTHY ice cream recipe…


(Pictured here is my organic sprouted apple cobbler WITH organic ice cream, for ice cream recipe see below!)

Hello and HAPPY 4th of July!! I don’t know about you, but I for one am proud to be an American, and I love this celebration of our country’s founding!  I pray that we as a nation turn our hearts back to God and see revival come again to our land. Our nation was birthed out of the heart of God!

So what are you doing to celebrate today? We’re barbecuing with friends, and since eating homemade ice cream on 4th of July is one of my favorite childhood memories, I had to whip up a batch of this delicious homemade treat.  It’s so simple, and yes, it is healthy for you!! I mean, don’t eat it for 3 meals a day, but there is absolutely nothing unhealthy about high quality, organic raw cream, egg yolks, and a little bit of totally unrefined sugar which still has its mineral and vitamin content intact. 

Now let me qualify that- conventional ice cream is one of the unhealthiest treats you can have!  It is filled with toxic ingredients such as antifreeze and lice killer! YUK! But you can still have your cake and eat it too by making your own ice cream.

I’ve adapted this recipe from one I received with my wonderful Cuisinart ice cream maker.


Best Ever Raw Vanilla Ice Cream

2 cups organic, raw, whole milk

1 cup organic, raw cream

3/4 cup organic Rapadura sugar

2-3 egg yolks (they are the KEY to this recipe!)

2 teaspoons organic vanilla


In a mixer, combine the sugar and milk on low until the sugar has dissolved. Gently stir in the cream, vanilla, and egg yolks. Pour into your ice cream maker, and wait! Mine takes about 30 minutes, and it’s worth every minute!

If you try this recipe, please let me know what you think, and enjoy!

With much love,

      Hi Bonnie! Yes, you could, and you should be able to just swap it right out 1 for 1. In baking you have to decrease the amount of liquid in the total recipe by 1/4 cup when you do this, but I don’t think you’d need to in ice cream 🙂

    Hi, another substitute that I’ve used with this recipe since I cannot handle any kind of sugar right now is organic Stevia. Instead of sugar just add 2 packets of stevia to the ingredients, I also like to slice open a vanilla bean add that to the mix. It comes out delicious & you would never know there is no sugar. My husband & 5 year old love it!

      Hi Bobbi Jo! I’m sure there’s some way to make it in a blender, but you should probably just Google for some ideas on how to adapt the recipe 🙂
