Goat's Milk Ice Cream

You can't have the 4th of July without ice cream. I think it is unpatriotic and grounds for impeachment if you are in a position that can be impeached.  We like making our own with ingredients we can pronounce and preferably come from our own farm. I tried out goat's milk ice cream for the first time! The results were delicious! And all of July has become ice cream month for us.

Here are recipes for the three classics of ice cream!

First, make a custard:
1/2 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
1 1/2 cups goat milk
1 T Vanilla

Whisk all together (except vanilla) and then stir over medium heat until it thickens a bit. Stir in the vanilla and let sit until cool. (The vanilla custard is not super thick.)

Once the custard is cool, Add 1 1/2 cups heavy cream and make according to manufacturer's instructions.


Make the vanilla custard and once it is cool, put in a blender and add 6 oz frozen organic strawberries. Give it all a whirl, then add to the ice cream maker with 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream.
Process according to the ice cream maker's directions.

Creamy Chocolate Chunk

Chocolate custard:

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cups cocoa powder
2 egg yolks
1 1/2 cups goat milk

Additional Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 Cup Chocolate Chunks (optional)

Whisk all the ingredients together and heat over medium until consistency is of a thick custard. Allow to cool completely, then add to ice cream maker with 1 1/2 cups heavy cream and follow manufacturer's instruction. Add chocolate chunks in the last 5-10 minutes. The consistency is that of soft serve. Store leftovers in freezer and to use, allow to thaw on the counter for 5-10 minutes before scooping.

  2. Thank you for sharing. Hello from Simple Lives Thursday.

  3. Thanks for sharing! I have tried making Goat milk ice cream before but it always cam out to runny. I will have to try this!

    1. Our vanilla, was a bit runny, but only the bottom half. The top was like soft serve. We are usually too impatient to let it go long enough to get stiff! The chocolate is by far my favorite in texture and flavor. Good luck!
