Enjoy a taste of summer with our Ninja Creami Lavender Honey Gelato recipe. This easy-to-make dessert blends the soothing aroma of lavender with sweet honey, creating a luxurious, creamy treat that’s perfect for any day.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups heavy cream 🍦

  • 1 cup whole milk 🥛

  • 3/4 cup honey 🍯

  • 2 tablespoons dried lavender flowers 🌿

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Pinch of salt 🧂

Directions

  • Infuse the Milk: In a medium saucepan, combine the milk, dried lavender, and honey. Heat the mixture over medium heat until just simmering. Remove from heat, cover, and let it steep for 15 minutes to infuse the lavender flavor.
  • Strain and Cool: Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a large bowl, pressing on the lavender to extract all the flavors. Discard the lavender solids.
  • Mix the Cream: Whisk in the heavy cream, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt into the strained mixture until fully combined.
  • Chill: Cover the bowl and refrigerate the mixture until completely chilled, at least 2 hours or overnight for the best results.
  • Prepare Your Ninja Creami: Ensure your Ninja Creami pint is frozen and ready for use.
  • Pour and Freeze: Pour the chilled mixture into the Ninja Creami pint container and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions, usually for about 24 hours.
  • Process in Ninja Creami: Insert the frozen pint into your Ninja Creami and select the ‘Gelato’ function. Let the machine run its cycle to achieve creamy perfection.
  • Garnish and Serve: Serve your freshly made lavender honey gelato in chilled bowls. Garnish with a few lavender sprigs or a drizzle of honey if desired.
  • Enjoy and Share: Enjoy your homemade gelato on its own or as a side to a slice of lemon cake. Don’t forget to share your creation on social media or with us here!
  • Store: Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the freezer. It can be reprocessed in the Ninja Creami to refresh its creamy texture.

Notes

  • Ingredient Quality: Use high-quality dried lavender and organic honey to ensure the best flavor and aroma in your gelato.
  • Infusion Time: Allow the lavender to steep in the hot milk and honey mixture for the recommended time to fully extract the floral notes without becoming bitter.
  • Chilling is Crucial: Thoroughly chill the gelato mixture before processing it in the Ninja Creami to ensure a smooth and creamy texture.
  • Reprocessing: If your gelato isn’t as creamy as desired after the first cycle, don’t hesitate to run it through the Ninja Creami again to achieve the perfect consistency.
  • Serving and Storage: Serve immediately for the best texture or store in an airtight container in the freezer, and reprocess quickly before serving to restore the creamy texture.
