Hibiscus Elixir Ice Cream
Makes 6 servings // Active Time: 45 minutes // Total Time: 2-3 hours
- 3 tsp loose hibiscus tea, hibiscus tea bags, or dried hibiscus flowers. We recommend this Natural Hibiscus Superflower Tea by The Republic of Tea.
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/2 tsp salt
In a medium pot, combine the milk, heavy cream, honey, and salt and bring to a simmer. Stir to ensure that everything is dissolved, and then add in your hibiscus tea leaves, tea bags, or dried hibiscus flowers. Remove from heat and let the tea steep for 15 minutes, or until the mixture is fragrant, colorful, and infused to your liking.
Strain the mixture and apply pressure to the flowers or leaves to extract any remaining liquid. Refrigerate the mixture until it is fully chilled. Once chilled, churn the mixture in an ice cream maker according to instructions.
Serve as is for soft-serve ice cream, or transfer the ice cream to an airtight, freezer-safe container and place it in the freezer to allow the ice cream to firm up. Enjoy!
