In keeping with our summer DIY theme, we wanted to bring you a tasty DIY treat. If it's a hot day, the last thing we want to do is stay inside while a hot oven raises the indoor temperature, so we figured a recipe that involves a freezer would settle better. There are lots of easy at home ice cream recipes floating around the web, but when we stumbled upon this two ingredient ice cream recipe, a few questions were raised. Could it be true? What would it taste like? It tastes like heaven. Who would have thought these two simple ingredients could produce such a divine flavor. Well we couldn't help but try out our own version so if you're into trying something new, try our lemon poppy seed ice cream with fresh blackberries. Instructions below!
Materials: 1/2 cup honey, 2 cups whipping cream, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/4 cup lemon juice, 1 teaspoon poppy seeds, fresh blackberries to serve
How To: (adapted from this recipe)
Step 1. Whip 1.5 cups of whipping cream until it forms stiff peaks. Stir in vanilla and lemon juice. Refrigerate. Step 2. Pour honey into a saucepan. Heat on low until it is very runny and add the remaining 1/2 cup of cream. Stir together until well blended. Step 3. Add honey/cream mixture to the whipped cream. Whisk until well blended.
