Lavender Infused Cherry Ice Cream (Paleo, SCD, GAPS, Dessert)

It is officially cherry season! Are you as excited about that as I am? Since I am in the Okanagan right now I can just head outside and pick some from my neighbour's tree. It is glorious. I think I have given myself a cherry coma. If that is even possible. I am putting cherries in everything right now. With pork tenderloin, coconut butter, ground beef… you name it I have probably tried it. And so far I have not found a combination I haven't liked. So to celebrate my current cherry obsession you are getting a cherry inspired dessert. This Lavender Infused Cherry Ice Cream is perfect for the hot weather, and has no added sweeteners so you can feel good about eating it. This one also contains grassfed gelatin and is made without an ice cream maker so everyone should be able to make it. I hope you like it!
