Honey Cinnamon Ice Cream recipe

Preparation Time: 4 hours

This delicious ice cream recipe uses honey in place of sugar, giving ice cream a delicious texture and a rich, sweet flavour. The cinnamon is optional, but it really gives the ice cream a delicious kick of flavour.


  • 500ml milk
  • 200ml runny honey
  • 500ml double cream
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 eggs, beaten


  1. Heat milk until just under boiling point, then whisk in the honey, cinnamon and salt. Pour around 1/6 of the hot milk onto the eggs and whisk to combine, then whisk in the rest of the milk and return everything to a clean saucepan. Cook, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, for around 5 minutes or until thickened. Pour through a sieve, then cool to room temperature.

  2. Stir the vanilla and cream into the custard, then pour into the ice cream maker. Churn according to manufacturer's instructions, or pour into a freezer-proof container and freeze for 3-4 hours, stirring halfway through the freezing time. Take out of the freezer for 15 minutes before serving.

For extra flavour, add some waffle chunks or chopped pecans to the ice cream. Recipe serves 10.
