Five ingredients and five minutes—that’s all it takes to prep this healthy homemade ice cream recipe! The flavor of lavender is becoming increasingly popular in desserts, but many of them don’t even contain real lavender. They instead rely on artificial ingredients and coloring. But not this ice cream—or should we say “nice” cream? Blueberries give this blend a lovely purple/blue hue, while pure Lavender Vitality™ essential oil adds an extra dimension of flavor and sophistication. Delicious, plant-based, and waistline friendly, this dessert is the perfect finish to a backyard party or just a hot summer day.
