Alright guys, I did it… a couple weeks ago I officially busted out my ice cream maker to kick off the warm weather. I couldn’t wait any longer to dive right into making this idea I had for homemade gelato. I’ve been a long time fan of lavender essential oil, but I’ve never used it in my food before, so I was super curious how it would turn out. I am excited to report that it’s delicious and y’all seemed so into it on my Instagram I thought I would post the recipe!
It all started when Sur La Table came to me asking me to create a recipe using their ice cream machine. The timing kinda worked out perfectly because I have been wanting to make vegan gelato but haven’t had much luck making it without an ice cream machine. So I jumped all over this opportunity and crossed my fingers it would turn out as good in my mouth as I envisioned in my head. Hooray! It did 🙂 I never thought I’d see the day where dairy-free ice cream would rock my world. It was definitely one of those things I knew that would be super hard to give up. I am so grateful to be able to enjoy special treats such as this Blueberry Lavender Lemon Gelato.
So I have to warn you, this recipe takes longer than 30 minutes, but it’s spread out over a couple days, so it’s really pretty easy. This has been my most popular post on Instagram, and I’ve been getting a lot of inquiries about the recipe, so without further ado…

Ohhh this is so exciting! Is there a part of this recipe that would be considered the base recipe? So I could make different flavors other than lavender blueberry? Thanks so much for al your hard work!
Hey there, sure! Just replace the lavender and blueberry with another flavor you’d like 🙂
Omg all my favorite flavors! I wish I had an ice cream maker is there anyway to make it without one?
So glad you like the flavor! I haven’t tried to make it by hand, but there are lots of YouTube videos on how to make ice cream at home without a machine. I hope it works! ?
