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!

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.

  1. Okay, this is on my to-make list for sure. I actually like raspberry seeds, so I wouldn’t strain it. All I need is to make room in the freezer for the ice cream maker…

  2. I’ve never thought to combine raspberry and thyme, but it sounds perfect! I have fresh thyme in my herb garden and always have plenty of raspberries this time of the year. I definitely need to try this soon!
