  • 1 pound organic strawberries
  • 2-4 TB raw honey depending on the sweetness of your berries – in season berries will not need as much!
  • 1 pint whole organic cream Raw preferable. Just NOT ultrapasturized. (If you are dairy free swap it for whole coconut milk!)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 1 TB tapioca starch You can use 4 pastured egg yolks instead if you can tolerate eggs!
  • 1 TB organic vodka this helps the ice cream not get rock hard in the freezer


  • Puree the strawberries with the honey until well combined.
  • Pour the strawberry mixture and the rest of the ingredients into a medium bowl, and using hand beaters, blend the mixture for just under a minute (The air will make it nice and fluffy but don’t go too long or you will have whipped cream!)
  • Set the ice cream mixture in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
  • Beat the mixture again quickly to combine, and pour into your ice cream maker according to your ice cream maker’s directions. Mine takes about 30 minutes.
  • Store ice cream in the freezer. I use empty coconut oil jugs!
