Easy, Five Ingredient Ice Cream

I’m a total sucker for an easy, healthy dessert recipe. Especially now that Asher is partaking in sweets, I want to control the ingredients that he is ingesting, at least while I can.

I came across this fun recipe for “Stress-Relieving Lavender Nice Cream.” YES PLEASE.

Anytime you are around lavender, don’t you want to take a deep breath immediately? Without realizing, you’re already on your path to relaxation. Lavender is known to counter inflammation, swelling, and pain, while also protecting against infection. Pretty cool.

When making this ice cream, I made a few edits to the original recipe.

Updated Ingredients List:

  • 3 1/3 cups (2 cans) coconut milk (I used normal, not light)
  • 1 and 1/2  tablespoons dried culinary lavender (do NOT use oil)
  • 3/4 cup frozen organic blueberries
  • 2/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Directions: Follow Popsugar‘s directions.

Alex founded Hello My Tribe not because she was an expert on motherhood, but because she was a mom who desperately needed support and community. During those tough first months of motherhood, Alex spent day after day reading and learning about motherhood. She learned: 1. She wasn’t alone in her feelings about motherhood. 2. Everything we could have ever dreamt of existed for the baby, but there was a lack of resources for the woman/mother 3. There are many maternal health issues in our country that need attention and need to be addressed. Hello My Tribe was built upon these needs. Previous to launching Hello My Tribe in 2016, Alex was a professional and volunteer fundraiser, raising millions of dollars for non-profit organizations. Alex lives in Austin, TX with her son and two rescue dogs.
