Honey Truffle Ice Cream

This honey truffle ice cream was an idea I had after tasting some honey flavoured with truffles at last year’s Good Food and Wine Show. I knew that the Willow Creek Truffle Flavoured Olive Oil would work perfectly in an ice cream as I had used another flavour prior to this.

I get so frustrated when people subscribe you to their newsletters and then get upset when you unsubscribe. My inbox is inundated with emails that I have not signed up for. I am not sure what makes anyone think they have the right to spam you. If I am interested enough in something I will sign up myself but, I actually don’t enjoy all the nonsense that others think I should read. This has been an ongoing issue and I find at least one new newsletter in my inbox every day. A while ago I decided to unsubscribe from a restaurant’s emails as I knew we would never go there again. The owner sent me a message asking if I had made a mistake and not wanting to offend him I said yes. But, a few weeks ago I decided to action my initial decision and stop receiving their offers.

We saw him at a birthday celebration and his first words to me were “you aren’t talking to us anymore”. It is not about that. My decision is not a personal attack on the person. Rather it is about not having a full inbox every morning when I get to work. And of course when we go away the overwhelming number of emails I don’t actually read clogs up my server. It is for this very reason I will never create a blog newsletter. It is also far too much work when just maintaining my blog is time consuming as it is. Some methods take more effort that others and this recipe for honey truffle ice cream is one of them. But the results are really worth it. I served the ice cream with my filled waffles and fresh figs.

  1. What a perfect dessert! Scrumptious – and our weather is perfect for it at the moment. We are still enjoying beautiful warm days.
    Have a happy week ahead Tandy.
    🙂 Mandy xo

  2. This just looks to die for Tandy! And the waffle on the side…..swoon!!! What a fun breakfast idea for a laid-back and fun weekend. And your newsletter insights are intriguing!!! You are so right, they are time consuming and even though we do have lots of subscribers, I suspect people are either going to your site or not. Although I have a few older readers who thank me for the emails because they don’t do social media any other way…..ughhh, but you are making me think to quit the newsletter, it’s a royal pain in the neck.

  3. How unbelievably awkward! Just because you are unsubscribing from spam doesn’t mean you don’t want to have a relationship with a brand/restaurant/blog etc. Anyway.. your post today is great 🙂 I just love the idea of honey ice cream!

  4. I am so adoring this idea of truffle oil in ice cream, sound amazing and Ilove unusual ice cream combos. Thanks! Wow can’t beleiv someone followed up like that from unsubcribing.

  5. This Ice cream looks perfect! I wish to dive i to.the bowl and fresh figs are my best friends!! I have never made icecream using oil though..

  6. I completely understand what you mean by having a new newsletter everyday. I get very overwhelmed by my inbox sometimes!
    However, this recipe for truffle honey ice cream looks absolutely amazing. I’ll have to try it this summer.

  7. I can certainly relate to having a full inbox. Just imagine if we still all received these as physical mail, our letterboxes would explode!! Tandy, your ice cream does look luscious, and decadent.

  8. No clue why I never thought of using truffle oil in ice cream before! I assume this is more of a white truffle oil? I will definitely have to give this a try next time around. Looks delicious!

  9. 5 stars
    Great recipe, I am not big into truffle oil for pastas but I think this combination is much better since it’s combined with honey. Love waffles and figs,so the entire dish looks and sounds amazing!

  10. 5 stars
    This would be ice cream NIRVANA Tandy! Oh what a fantastic combo 🙂

  11. I would have never thought to put these together but it sounds and looks amazing! The fig really makes for a gorgeous photo also! I would love to try this.

  12. Hells yes, that is beyond annoying when you receive emails that you never signed up for. Grrrr! Extra annoying if you cop flak for unsubscribing. 🙁
    But this dessert is amazing and would make me forget the annoying-ness (that’s a word right?) of some peeps.

  13. 5 stars
