Figs'n'Honey Ice Cream

Yes, I am back with another ice cream recipe. This time it is another family favorite - Figs'n'honey. We are big fans of dried figs and honey. Though the original version is made with fresh figs, I am making it with dried figs. If you have not tried dried figs yet, you got to try it, quite a treat. Though desserts are meant to be enjoyed in moderation, you can indulge in this one because it is made with nutritious ingredients like dried figs, raw honey and do not have any refined sugar, or other processed ingredients. Here's for a quick'n'healthy summer :)


Ingredients:
  • Organic dried figs - 15 
  • Organic raw unpasteurized honey - 3 Tbs
  • Organic non-homogenized organic whole milk - 2 Cups
  • Organic arrowroot powder -1 Tbs

Directions: 
  • Make sure you have the ice cream maker bowl in the freezer for at least 6 hours or overnight. 
  • Soak dried figs in 1/2 cup of milk.
  • Mix arrowroot powder in 1/4 cup of milk without any lumps. Add the remaining milk and mix well.
  • In sauce pan on medium heat, cook the arrowroot milk mixture, stirring constantly till the mixture starts  to thicken. Remove from flame and let it cool down.
  • Blend the soaked figs along with soaking milk and honey to get desired consistency. Some smalls bites of fig remaining would be nice.
  • Transfer to a bowl, add the arrowroot mixture, mix well. Keep this refrigerated for a couple of hours or till nicely chilled.
  • Add the mixture to ice cream maker bowl and run it for 20 minutes or as per manufacturer's instructions. 
  • Serve immediately for a soft serve ice cream. For a scoop-able version, keep frozen for a couple of hours.
  • Scoop and serve. This makes about 3 cups of ice cream. Enjoy !!

  1. I so wish it was summer in Australia at the moment - I can see you've posted two delicious ice cream recipes in a row and it's too cold for me to make them! :( Figs are one of my favourite fruits and I'm not joking, I just put a reminder on my Google calendar to make this recipe in the middle of December. YUM!
