Vanilla Basil Ice Cream

(recipe, Quinn Losselyong)


I made this recipe in the prime of the basil growing season and it turned out amazing.


  1. 2 cups heavy whipping cream (chilled)
  2. 1 cup whole milk
  3. ½ cup sugar (we used super fine)
  4. 1 vanilla bean (insides scraped out and remainder put in sugar jar for vanilla sugar)
  5. 15 basil leaves


  1. add sugar, vanilla, milk and basil into food processor and blend for 25 seconds
  2. filter mixture through a fine mesh strainer to get all the basil bits out
  3. add heavy whipping cream and mixture into ice cream maker
  4. run machine for 25-30 minutes or until thick
  5. transfer ice cream to plastic container and freeze
