Celebrate the new year with a dish of spiced apple ice cream. Warm spices, cooked apples, cold cream. Perfection.


  • 2 medium apples, peeled and diced
  • 2 tsp butter (or coconut oil)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • optional: nutmeg, cloves, or a cinnamon spice blend
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 2 1/2 cups cream (raw if possible or coconut milk)
  • 1/2 cup whole milk (raw if possible or coconut milk)
  • 2 egg yolks (optional)
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar, maple syrup and/or honey
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla or vodka
  • 1 Tbsp tapioca flour OR arrowroot
  • 1/4 tsp unrefined sea salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon


  1. Saute apples in butter, spices, and honey over medium heat for about 5 minutes, until tender but not mushy. Set aside to cool.
  2. In a blender, combine the remaining ingredients. Blend until well mixed.
  3. Process the ice cream in an ice cream mixer according to manufacturer's directions (it takes 15-20 minutes in my Kitchen Aid ice cream maker attachment).
  4. Transfer the ice cream to a freezer safe container.
  5. Stir in the apples.
  6. Freeze until firm.


You can add 1/4 cup chopped crispy pecans or sugar coated pecans when you stir in the apples.
