Gluten Free Raspberry Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe

Gluten Free Raspberry Vanilla Ice Cream uses the plentiful raspberries of the season. Grab a spoon and go!

Summer is here and around our home that means LOTS of homemade ice cream. I love dreaming up new flavors and taste to try, plus my family loves to eat it too.

Since berries happen to be in season and so plentiful and beautiful at the store and farmers market, we decided it was time for vanilla ice cream with fresh berries. I thought about possibly doing a mixed berry variation, but since my daughter is allergic to strawberries, we stuck with raspberry.

Next up, we used a mixture of half cream and half milk to make the base of the ice cream with sugar, and let the ice cream maker do the heavy work. I’m also reminded while making this of just how much sugar ice cream has in it, but we can just look past that, okay?

Once it came out of the ice cream maker, it was beautiful and heavenly to taste.

Can you imagine sitting outside watching the kids play while enjoying a delicious bowl of raspberry vanilla ice cream? Imagine it? I did it!

It made time stands still for a minute and gave me a little "me time" on the lazy days of summer.

Of course, for my kids we had the water toys nearby for a quick hose off after that tasty ice cream landed all down my daughter’s clothes. I guess that is just another day in the life of a two-year-old.

Do you have ice cream flavors that take you back to your childhood? I hope some of the flavors we try each summer remind my kids of theirs.

We have several favorites along with this one, a little less healthy I suppose, like Butterfinger ice cream. That one is just dangerous.

What type of flavor do you plan to try this year? Be sure to share it with us and enjoy a delicious bowl of gluten free raspberry vanilla ice cream!
