Homemade Raspberry Ice Cream


I have been making a lot of frozen yogurt. You don't need cream for the frozen yogurt like you do for ice cream. Tonight, I decided to try ice cream, with the goats milk. I do not have a cream separator and I do not have the patience to skim off the cream, that collects at the top of the bottles of milk, in the fridge. It would take quite some time to collect  two cups. I used half and half in this recipe that was purchased from the store. If you have cream, you can use that.
Raspberry Ice Cream
2 cups goats milk
2 cups half and half
2 cups raspberries
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Blend ingredients, and place in Ice Cream Maker. Follow instructions for your model. Enjoy!

-you can use frozen, fresh or freeze dried raspberries
-I use a  blender to mix the ingredients, to get a smoother ice cream.


I did not have fresh raspberries and decided to use some freeze dried raspberries I had purchased from Emergency Essentials. They worked great. I just placed them in the milk, and let them soak for about ten minutes, before putting in blender.

We never get a chance to put the ice cream in the freezer, it always gets eaten up right away, even by the naysayer of the bunch. It is a great way to use up that extra milk, especially with the warmer weather we have been having the last few days!
