SCD GAPS Diet Raspberry Ice Cream is made with just three ingredients – no ice cream machine required.
Who doesn’t love ice cream, especially homemade ice cream. This Raspberry Ice Cream is made with just three ingredients – homemade creme fraiche (SCD and GAPS Diet friendly), frozen raspberries and honey. Because it’s made with SCD GAPS Diet creme fraiche (also called sour cream), this ice cream is naturally virtually lactose free so if you’re lactose intolerant you might be able to eat this without a problem.
We have some lactose intolerances in our family, so this Raspberry Ice Cream was a welcome treat. The SCD and GAPS Diet are gut healing diets, so this ice cream is actually good for you. Who said you can’t have your ice cream and eat it too?
Welcome to another edition of Progressive Eats, our virtual version of a progressive dinner party. If you’re unfamiliar with the concept, a progressive dinner involves going from house to house, enjoying a different course at each location. With Progressive Eats, a theme is chosen each month, members share recipes suitable for a delicious meal or party, and you can hop from blog to blog to check them out.
We have a core group of 12 bloggers, but we will always need substitutes and if there is enough interest would consider additional groups. To see our upcoming themes and how you can participate, please check out the schedule at Creative Culinary or contact Barb for more information.
This month’s theme is Ice Cream Social hosted by Barbara Bakes. I hope you enjoy all the ice cream recipes we made for this special event.

What gorgeous colour!
Stunning, Jeanette! I love the simplicity of this beautiful berry ice cream—I’m certain the raspberry flavor shines brightly!
Lisa @ Healthy Nibbles & Bits says
I’ve tried making frozen yogurt by blending yogurt, frozen berries, and honey before, but never creme fraiche. The color of this looks beautiful!
This is basically the same thing, as the creme fraiche I used is fermented cream (vs. milk)
Zaza@Simple and Delicious says
I love love raspberries!! Your ice cream sounds simply delightful 🙂
Oh my goodness … not only is this gorgeous, it sounds divine! Looking forward to trying this recipe soon!
Thanks Kimberly – hope you enjoy this!

This is some of the prettiest ice cream I’ve ever seen! YUM!
Thank you Sonali – our entire family enjoyed this.
Jane, The Heritage Cook says
What a fabulous idea Jeanette – a “good for us” ice cream! And I love that you don’t need an ice cream maker. I never seem to have room in my freezer for the container. Home run Jeanette!
Thanks Jane – always trying to find a healthy twist and still indulge 🙂
Regan @ The Healthy Aperture Blog says
So, so pretty 🙂 With high quality dairy + honey + raspberries, who needs anything else?
Thanks Regan – I agree, when you use high quality ingredients, simple is best
Barbara @ Barbara Bakes says
What a gorgeous color! A fabulous addition to our ice cream social.
Thanks Barbara – loved seeing everyone’s ice cream social recipes!
Oh that’s like a summer breeze in a cup! Fresh, wholesome and good for you! Love that it is actually good for us!
This does encapsulate summer in a cup – I agree 🙂

One of my grandson’s can’t have any dairy, so this would be perfect for him. When I clicked on your links for the creme fraiche, they were broken. Is this something readily available? Really beautiful photos!!
Susan – I fixed the links to the creme fraiche recipe – thanks for catching that. It’s very easy to make. The key is to ferment it for at least 24 hours which will get rid of most of the lactose.
Such a gorgeous color! And I can’t resist raspberries, of course.
Thanks Megan – raspberries are a summer favorite!
Cookin Canuck says
What a beautiful ice cream! And I love the idea of making it with creme fraiche.
Thanks Dara – creme fraiche definitely makes this creamier than if I’d used regular yogurt.
Heather | girlichef says
Oh, this looks luscious! Such a beautiful color, and I can’t believe it’s only made with 3 ingredients.
Thanks Heather – this is so easy to make and no machine required.
Julie @ Willow Bird Baking says
Thanks Julie 🙂

What a gorgeous dessert. Love raspberries and am now dreaming of how wonderful they must be with creme fraiche. Really nice Jeanette!
I don’t have a yogurt maker or dehydrator to make it. I saw someone else said you could leave it out at room temp for a day? I live in Australia and it’s like 32 degrees here lately. I really want to make this what alternative do you suggest? Should I try finding fermented Creme fresh or just use normal sour cream? Would be interested in what you would suggest. Looks amazing!
I would try making creme fraiche at room temperature. Sour cream is more tart than creme fraiche.
