Orange Chamomile + Honey Ice Cream (GF, DF)

An ice cream for winding down?! Who knew it could be a thing?? 😍🥥🍦🍨

This ADAPTOGENIC ORANGE, CHAMOMILE + HONEY is a relaxing blend of tart cherry, ashwaganda, raw honey, chamomile tea, + orange zest infused into a rich dreamy, creamy base 🍊🍒🍯 I used Peak and Valley’s Restore My Sleep adaptogen blend which is of the highest quality! Plus, don’t we love to support empowered women-owned companies? YES!!!

Made with coconut and almond milks for healthy fat and easier digestion than dairy, sweetened with only a touch of stevia and honey – it’s a hug for your mind, body and soul. There’s honestly no better night cap! 

Whether you scoop it into a cone, serve atop your favorite dessert, or simply dig into the jar (love it with blueberry jam!) it’s an amazing alternative to a sleep supplement! 

If you choose to pair it with another dessert, I highly recommend this lemon pound cake and these coffee cake baked oats!

Orange Chamomile + Honey Ice Cream(GF, DF)


1 – 14 oz can full-fat coconut milk

2 c vanilla almond milk

2 tsp Peak and Valley Restore My Sleep adaptogen blend 

1/3 c raw honey

Zest and juice from one large orange

2 tbsp tapioca

10-12 drops Nu Naturals vanilla stevia

3-4 drops Young Living orange vitality oil

1/4 oz loose leaf chamomile tea, or 2-3 chamomile tea bags


Blend everything but the tea in a high-speed blend until smooth and frothy.

Heat 1-2 cups of the ice cream base over medium heat until simmering, then pour into a mug or glass jar with the tea (use a steeper/strainer if using loose leaf)

Strain/remove tea bags after 8-10 minutes and add to the remaining ice cream base.

Chill the mixture for 8 hours or overnight.

Churn in an ice cream machine, following the instructions on the machine.

Mixture will be quite thick and adhere to the mixing panel when it’s ready.

Quickly transfer to small glass jars or a shallow glass container and freeze.

Thaw in the fridge for 1-2 hours, depending on freezer temperature, before enjoying!
