This dairy-free Raspberry Thyme Ice Cream recipe is a perfect summertime treat. It is refreshing dessert with fresh fruit and herbs that everyone will absolutely love! It is vegan and guilt free…it is made with fruit after all.
Why you should make this recipe:
Fresh raspberries contain high levels of assorted vitamins and minerals needed for healthy body functions, including potassium, calcium, lutein and zeaxanthin. Raspberries are extremely high in various antioxidants, and help with inflammation.
So why on earth did I pair raspberries with thyme? Thyme contains a variety of bioflavinoids and volatile oils that have powerful anti-oxidant properties. Thyme is also a powerful antiseptic and antibacterial agent which helps with all around good health. Now add in that thyme is a very good source of calcium, iron, manganese, chromium, vitamin K and fiber, and I have created ice cream that is good for your health!

How to make Raspberry Thyme Ice Cream
Start by pureeing the raspberries in a food processor.
Add the coconut milk, thyme leaves, agave nectar, vanilla, and sea salt.
Process until smooth and well combined.
Pour into the bowl of an ice cream maker, and process according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Mine takes about 20 minutes.
Pour into a freezer safe container.
Freeze until ready to serve.
You may want to test the flavor before adding the entire 1 tablespoon of vanilla, and adjust to your tastes. I wanted to mask the flavor of the coconut milk and liked the results. You may prefer to coconut flavor, or a more subtle vanilla flavor.
Recipe Notes & Tips
Feel free to substitute half and half for the coconut milk if you are not looking for a dairy-free or vegan dessert.
