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.

    If you did not have coconut water on hand would almond milk be an appropriate substitute? What would you tend to substitute for coconut water? Thank you again for sharing these recipes and tips.

    • Hi Amy! We have not tried this recipe with a substitution for coconut water. You are welcome to try it with almond milk and let us know how it turns out. Thanks for stopping by!

    Does this taste like coconut?

    • Hello Sandy! For those that have tried it, they did say it had some coconut flavor, but it was more of a blueberry-lavender flavor overall. You could always replace the coconut cream with another cream if you do not like the flavor of coconut. Hope that helps!
