This Goat Cheese Ice Cream is sweetened with honey!
This goat cheese ice cream is a little bit different.
The ingredients are so simple, the texture is so unique, and the flavor is extremely special!
I recreated it for my son’s birthday party and it paired nicely with the chocolate cake. It’s kind of surprising to have such a bright and creamy ice cream without any vanilla flavor to it.
The goat cheese ice cream itself was at its best after a couple hours in the freezer following a churn in the ice cream maker. When I pulled it out the next day it was rock hard, but if I had any patience at alllll, it would have been equally creamy after a ten minute stint thawing on the counter.
Like goat cheese, it had the ability to be both creamy and a little crumbly.
Does it taste like goat cheese? Not really. Does it taste like honey? Not really.
You just have to try it! It has a fresh, creamy, and slightly tangy finish.
This goat cheese and honey ice cream can be customized! Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Add an extra drizzle of honey over the top
- Mix in fresh fruit such as raspberries, strawberries, or figs
- Use as a filling for an ice cream cookie sandwich
- Serve alongside the best chocolate cake
Goat Cheese and Honey Ice Cream
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1 cup whole milk
- ½ cup honey
- 3-4 ounces soft goat cheese
- In a medium saucepan, combine cream, milk, and honey over medium heat. Heat until steaming but not boiling, stirring occasionally.
- Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the goat cheese until it is completely melted into the cream mixture and no lumps remain. Transfer the mixture to a 2 quart or larger covered storage container and refrigerate until completely cold, a few hours up to overnight.
- Churn the ice cream in your ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s directions. Transfer the ice cream to a freezer safe container and store in the freezer until firm, at least two hours. Homemade ice cream is best enjoyed within a few days.
