Raspberry Ice Cream by Cravings of a Lunatic

Hi folks. I hope you didn’t think I forgot about Ice Cream Sundays. I did not. You know I love my Ice Cream Sundays. It’s my favourite day of the week!

I wanted to make a mini-me approved ice cream this week. She loves raspberries so I thought to myself, “hey self, make raspberry ice cream”. So I listened to my self and this is the result. Darn tasty stuff. Pretty too. My self approves. Mini-me approves. Life is good. And pretty.

Mini-me’s Raspberry Ice Cream:


1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup sugar
Pinch vanilla salt
2 cups heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1+1/2 cups raspberries


In a mixer combine your whole milk, sugar and vanilla salt. Use the whisk attachment and mix until the sugar dissolves.

Now add the heavy cream and vanilla extract. Mix for a few minutes.

Add your raspberries and mix for a couple more minutes.

Cover the bowl and set it in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours.

Remove and transfer the liquid to the freezer bowl (make sure it’s frozen!) and attach it to your machine.

Turn on and mix for 15 to 20 minutes.

Remove and serve immediately, or stick it in the freezer until you want to use it. Just remember to take it out at least 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

    Mmm, I love raspberries so much. This looks so fresh and delicious!

    Delicious! Honey Bunny adores raspberries, so this would be his choice! It's nice to take a day off from blogging and usually Sunday is my day. I do a little bit of reading on Saturday, but I post 5 days a week and save the weekends for hubby!

    @Anna- Thanks so much. This was a great ice cream to make.

    @Ann- Mini-me too. She eats them constantly. I am taking Sundays off too but will still post. Just going to be more organized and schedule them. I am learning. Slowly but….slowly. Lol!

    Gosh, do you ever make a bad ice cream??? Wow, another incredible flavor…yum! I don't blog on the weekends…it's my catch up time. Blogging is definitely taking a toll on my housekeeping :/

    Hope you're having a good start to the week! xo

    I love raspberries, and they look just scrumptious here.
    I love how we have ice cream here and healthy smoothies on "Losing It."
    You are so very creative and I just don't know where you find the time and energy to put so much into both blogs, but my hats off to you :)

    Anything with raspberries wins for me. I'd probably even eat chocolate ice cream if it had raspberries in it or raspberry sauce on it. This looks delicious. I'll take a double scoop please!

    Jennifer @ Mother Thyme says:

    My biggest weakness is ice cream. When I was pregnant I had to have it everyday. Now I have no excuse, I just like to have it everyday! :) Delicious recipe!

    @Tina- Thanks. I am glad you like them.

    @Nami- Thanks. I had fun with the pics.

    @the food dude- Thank you so much.

    @Dzoli- I'm with ya, love all things pink.

    @Lizzy- Lol, now what would be the point of that? I have such fun with the ice cream. And it's good cuz it's something I am content to have one bowl of and then leave alone. I am going to be doing the weekends off myself. But I have ongoing weekend themes so will now schedule them ahead to free up my weekends. And I hear ya, my laundry pile is to the ceiling most days.

    @Rachel- Well thanks, we'll see if I can keep up with myself or crash and burn. I thought the smoothies the same day as ice cream gives healthy folks options.

    @The Mom Chef- Lol, I almost dumped chocolate all over this but I held back.

    @Jennifer- Lol, I hear ya. My all time fave was my chocolate fudge brownie pistachio. That I would have a hard time not diving in every day.

    Oooo, Raspberries are my second favorite berry and I keep meaning to pull out the ice cream maker.

    The problem though is that now I'm torn between this recipe and your mint chocolate chip one. You evil woman… making me indecisive.

    @Kiri- Thanks. I love home made ice cream so you forgo all the chemicals. Just all natural ingredients. Gotta love it.

    @Kelly- Thanks my dear. Ice cream is such a girlie food. Love it to bits.

    @Dara- Thanks. Mini-me's fave too. She is a raspberry fiend.

    @Kimberly- Thanks. I have been at these for months and months. Hence why I need to hop on a treadmill. But this series is my fave so I continue on. Lol.

    @Janet- Mint chocolate chip raspberry? Mint chocolate chip with raspberry sauce?

    @savoryandsavage- Thanks. And thanks. I love this series so much. It just makes me smile. Like a little kid every week making this stuff.

    We scream for that raspberry ice cream…two scoops, please!

  35. 35

    Ice cream-a-palooza! If they were all actually sitting in front of me and I was only allowed one it would not work out. I would have to go down the row and lick them all so no one else would want them! Awesome pics as usual.

  36. 36

    @Cheryl and Adam- Thanks, so touched you popped by.

    @Tina- You cracked me up big time. That was wicked funny.
