I may receive a commission if you purchase through links in this post. I am not a doctor; please consult your practitioner before changing your supplement or healthcare regimen.

This Cinnamon Ice Cream can be made with grass-fed raw cream and milk, if you can access it; or do a dairy-free version with coconut milk, great for those on GAPS, AIP or those who can’t have dairy.

The Story

The best piece of pie I ever had was rhubarb. It was topped with homemade cinnamon ice cream. That was in Julian, CA, the town our son is named after, in the year of our marriage, 1996. (Coming up on 20 years!)

I’m not that into pie. But this time I was.

I’m very into ice cream.

It was the first time I’d eaten cinnamon ice cream. It went perfectly with the pie.

It also goes great by itself.

Cinnamon is usually on hand. Like vanilla, it’s ubiquitously loved.

Enjoy this lovely flavor, and the summer that’s near at hand, with hopefully plenty of homemade ice cream in tow… Perhaps you’ll get to go to Julian one day? It’s that idyllic town with rolling hills, oak trees, old gold mines, and baked goods that make you linger.

  1. This sounds absolutely delicious! I love the story behind it too. And the name of the town and your little one. So sweet.

    1. No, stevia does not affect the freezing temperature. You could consider mesquite powder! It’s an exciting option…

  2. What a lovely recipe! I’ve never been to Julian, never even heard of it, but how fun to have that history behind your family and this recipe.

  3. Love the idea of cinnamon in an ice cream. I don’t have a big sweet tooth and I think the spice flavor would be a delicious change from the usual.

  4. This cinnamon ice cream sounds so dreamy! I ♥ cinnamon AND I ♥ homemade ice cream, so I know it’s a WIN!
