Raw milk ice cream recipe
Ice cream is usually considered to be junk food.
- Feel free to experiment with other sweetener options–I’ve added maple syrup and honey to mine in the past. They change the flavor a bit, but it’s still yummy.
- Since this recipe is completely uncooked, this is a good time to use your raw milk and cream, if you have them. If not, then try to choose the best quality milk you have available.
- I’m not currently milking our goats, so I haven’t tried this particular recipe with goat’s milk. However, in the past I’ve been able to use goat’s milk to substitute for 100% of the milk and cream in other recipes. So in this recipe, try using 4 cups of goat’s milk instead of the 2 cups of cream and 2 cups of milk.
- If I’m preparing a large meal, I like to make the ice cream base ahead of time (up to 24 hours) so it’s one less thing I have to worry about.
- This recipe only makes a quart. I always, always end up multiplying ice cream recipes. We had a whole bunch of people over for the 4th of July, and I made TWO quadruple batches. It was a hit!

- With other ice cream recipes I’ve made, you have to let it sit out at room temp for 15-30 minutes before it’s scoop-able. I particularly like this recipe because I had no problem scooping it straight from the freezer- even after it had frozen solid.
