Nutrient Dense Cinnamon Spice Ice Cream

The husband is a no-sweets kind of guy. As in, NONE. Almost ever.  He has this weird ability to resist things that make him feel bad, even if they taste good. Just strange. 😉  Today was (is!) his birthday and the rest of the family wanted SWEETS to celebrate.

So, to get HIM to eat his birthday treat with us, we went  ‘real food’.  The kids and I made ice cream from raw milk and cream and we sweetened it mostly with honey and a touch of raw sugar. To keep the sweet factor down for him, we didn’t add fruit like we usually do. We spiced it up with cinnamon and nutmeg and added a couple of pastured egg yolks to pack the nutrients in and make it more custard-like.  The recipe was adjusted and adapted from several ice cream recipes online but it is not really attributable to any one person so I’m including my adapted recipe instead of links to several others.  I would call it flan flavored ice cream, which went right along with our sprouted corn chips and salsa and fajitas.



Real Food Cinnamon Spice Ice Cream (Makes about 4 cups)

1 1/2 cups raw cream (because raw cream is not legal to sell in Utah, I separate it from the raw milk -Check out my YouTube Video on my super easy method of separating cream from milk. )

1 1/2 cups raw milk

1/2 cup local raw honey

2 tbsp sucanant

1 tsp organic vanilla

2 tsp Ceylon cinnamon

1/4 tsp organic nutmeg

pinch  Real Salt (we’re used to the undissolved minerals in our food, but use plain sea salt if you prefer)

2 local pastured egg yolks

I mixed all the ingredients (except the egg yolks) together in a glass bowl earlier in the day to let the flavors settle in a bit. When I was ready to put the mix in the ice cream maker, I beat in the egg yolks and poured it in immediately. It took about 20 minutes to get to a nice soft-serve consistency and it was served with a sprinkle of cinnamon and nutmeg on top…and, of course,  a candle for the birthday boy.

What? No cake? Well, no. I gave up on trying to make  ‘acceptable’ cakes for him years ago although, one year I did whole wheat rolls in cupcake liners with real butter on top and that was a huge hit.
