What do you do when you're blessed with an abundance of fresh herbs and you're looking to get creative?  You make raw ice cream!  

That's right, incorporating fresh herbs into raw desserts has become one of my latest intrigues.  It's so much fun discovering new flavor infusions.  The possibilities are endless!  This one is a citrus-thyme combo – fragrantly sweet, slightly zesty, and oh so divine! 

Start by making your own homemade thyme infused raw honey... 

Lemon-Thyme Ice Cream

1/3 cup raw honey
2 Tbsp fresh thyme, minced

Stir in fresh, minced thyme into raw honey and allow to infuse overnight.  

1/2 cup cashews (soaked 2 hr)
1 cup water
Juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
Pinch Himalayan salt

Soak cashews to soften, rinse and drain.  Blend all ingredients (expect the thyme infused honey) until smooth and creamy.  Add honey in at the very end and blend on low to incorporate.  Pour into an ice cream maker, following the manufacturer's instructions.  That's it!

*If you don't have an ice cream maker, you can freeze the mixture in a glass container overnight... comes out just as good!
