Lavender Lemon Earl Grey Ice Cream

Lavender Lemon Earl Grey Ice Cream – A simple, yet elegant dessert made with lavender earl grey tea, fresh lemon juice, and creamy no-churn ice cream base.

I have been on a lavender lemon kick! Between this ice cream and some lavender lemon macarons I whipped up, it is my go-to flavor combo! I love how light it is and it feels so elegant! Originally, this was simply going to be an earl grey ice cream but when I found a tin of lavender earl grey tea in the pantry, I knew I had to use it! Plus did I mention this is a no-churn ice cream? It’s is literally SO easy to make!


I absolutely loved getting to pull out these gorgeous tea cups, picking between all of them was so difficult because they were all so gorgeous but I thought the orange in this one complemented the purple in the lavender.  I suggest sprinkling some cinnamon and a little honey on top of the ice cream! I paired this will a slice of lemon buttermilk cake and was in dessert nirvana!
