Sweet Wholesome Wednesday: Spicy Ginger Pecan Ice Cream



I found this DELICIOUS recipe in my Nourishing Traditions book and it has become a regular in my family. I've been making this for several months now and made some changes, but ended up going back to the original recipe.

I just love the spicy, warm feel in my mouth while savory each bite of this deliciously sweet treat. The pecans imparts a wonderful buttery flavor that you can only get from pecans :o) This is a great treat for those who are heading into the fall and winter season. This cool treat will leave you feeling warm and tingling.





Spicy Ginger Pecan Ice Cream


  • 3 cups whole milk or cream
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 Tbsp. arrowroot
  • 1 Tbsp. ground ginger
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup chopped pecans


Beat egg yolks in a bowl and either pour into a blender or keep in the bowl. Blend in the remaining ingredients. Pour into an ice cream maker and process according to its instructions. When done, transfer the ice cream into a shallow plastic bowl and store in freezer or eat right away.


If you don't have an ice cream maker... simply pour into a shallow plastic container, cover and store in your freezer. When frozen, take it out and let it thaw till slightly soft. Put back in the blender and give it a whirl till creamy.



Both ways give delicious results!!  Also, don't forget: enter to win a FREE quart jar of Tropical Traditions Organic Virgin Coconut Oil.



I almost forgot! Kristy @ My Little Space gave me a Friend Button... Thank you Kristy!!!!

  2. Yum! This reminds me of my grandparent's house when I was little and would visit after school. They always had pecan ice cream in the freezer, so I find this flavor very comforting.

  8. Sounds fantastic! The times I have made ice cream and not cooked the eggs into a custard first, it always has such good flavor. I need to remember that. Thanks for the reminder!

  14. Thank you everybody! I hope most of you will get a chance to make this. Remember, if you don't have an ice cream maker... use your blender!

  15. My nephew is begging me to make ice cream next week. I always try to use local ingredients. If I'm not making these, I would probably make your coconut lime ice cream. And I will definitely use the blender.
