Coconut Lavender Honey Ice Cream | figsandfeta.com

Usually when I make homemade ice cream I use whole milk, heavy cream and sugar as my base. Here I’ve substituted the whole milk with coconut cream and the sugar with honey.

Can you tell I’m passionate about my ice cream?

Don’t Knock it ’till You Try It

Frozen-Yogurt-10It may sound quite strange to add olive oil and flaky sea salt to frozen yogurt, however, please, please, please trust me on this. The flavor party happening in your mouth is seriously like Mardi Gras, Fourth of July, Greek Independence Day And New Year’s Eve at midnight all at once.
