Real Food – Two Ingredient Ice Cream – No Machine Required

in Family, General, Photography, Real Food / Easy Meals

This recipe is so EASY and YUMMY! However, I can’t take any of the credit. I found this fabulous recipe courtesy of Alina @ Russian Season (one of my favourite blogs) and she found it @ the Stone Soup. My children thank-you both, as do I. ‘Mommy knows’ a good recipe when she sees it!

Homemade TWO Ingredient Ice Cream

Prep: 10 minutes Freeze: 6 hours


1/2 cup of honey
2 1/2 cups of cream (35% fat)

Real Food - Two Ingredient Ice Cream ...

(and I can’t follow a recipe, so I added)

1 teaspoon of vanilla (to the whipped cream portion)


A teensie bit of grated vanilla bean (to the honey and cream portion)

I just couldn’t stand it, I had to add the vanilla, but you don’t, so I am going to continue to call it TWO ingredient ice cream.

Two Ingredient Ice Cream (no ice cream machine required)

1. Whip 1.5 cups of whipping cream (plus 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract) until it forms stiff peaks, refrigerate.
2. Heat honey on low heat until it is very runny and add the remaining 1 cup of cream. Stir together until well blended (and grate in teensie bit of vanilla bean).
3. Add honey/cream mixture to the whipped cream. Whisk until well blended.
4. Freeze approximately 6 hours until the mixture is the consistency of ice cream.

Serve with the topping of your choice –> Enjoy!

    Yummy! We always make our own ice cream in the summer time, rolling with rock salt. It’s awesome! This looks easier, though. :)

    What a wonderful post! Thank you. I’m into icecream, and this one is seriously easy and with just 2 ingredients. From this base you can start building up on different flavors depending on the topping or whatever you put in! Except of course that we have to wait for about 6 hours so it is ready..=( Anyhow, it should be all worth the wait=)

    Mmmm, the ice cream looks really good and I like the fact that its so simple. Often the best food is simple. Great that a machine is not needed – I do have one but it makes such a noise.

    this looks delicious, and easy to make too.

    As an avid ice-cream fan, I was thrilled to read this simple recipe. I spend a fortune on ice-cream and have it with everything – pancakes, smoothies, as a side dish for any dessert or just a late night or anytime of day snack! I have seriously been considering buying an ice-cream maker, but your simple recipe suggests that’s not necessary. I’ll be trying this out right away. Nice work!

    My website is centered on selling photography online – but have you ever considered compiling your awesome photographs along with your information and tips into an eBook or physical book? I’d buy one!

    whoever decided to put honey in bear shaped containers was a genius. I always want to give them a squeeze.
