Goat Milk Ice Cream

Here’s a simple goat milk ice cream recipe from our friends at Big Dream Acres. You can use the vanilla recipe as a base and customize it to create your own flavors! We’ll add some of our own custom creations below.

Ingredients displayed are for our Pistachio Cherry ice cream (recipe below)

Basic Vanilla Ice Cream


  • 8 cups raw goat milk
  • 3 cups sugar (or less if you don’t like super sweet)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp vanilla


  • Beat until sugar is dissolved
  • Pour into ice cream maker
  • Churn for 30-45 minutes
  • Add any kind of mix-ins you’d like (candy, cookies, chocolate, caramel, etc.)

The consistency will be soft right out of the ice cream maker, but will firm up after time in the freezer.

Cherry Pistachio Ice Cream

Our favorite Christmas cookie is called a cherry pistachio meltaway. We figured we’d try to create an ice cream flavor that replicates the cookie! Use the above recipe but add the following:

  • 1 box of pistachio pudding mix
  • 1 tbsp almond extract
  • maraschino cherries, blotted and chopped
  • green food coloring (optional)
This is the natural color, no food coloring added
