I ate the world this weekend. THE WORLD. I even ate some gluten. Thankfully, I don’t think it was enough to make me miserable. Chunky, yes. Miserable, no. But I just wanted naughty food. I wanted some frozen yogurt. Multiple times. I wanted chips and guac. Multiple times. And I wanted Cracked nut butter…multiple times. I definitely have a food baby. So I might have to go get frozen yogurt one more time. In honor of the CrossFit games. They worked hard, so I should celebrate for them. You’re welcome CrossFit athletes. Proud of ya.

So even though I spent most of my time eating, I still had time to do other things. Not much, but a little. So I started my weekend off going to the Rockies games with the boyfriend’s family. They are all so good looking. It’s weird. Anywho, we biked down to the Rockies game, of course stopping at Yogurtland first, then got to sit close to the field. Guess what? We even made it on the jumbotron! I think it’s called the jumbotron. Whatever. Highlight of the night. Well, other than the frozen yogurt. Do you ever fear picking your nose and the jumbotron turns on you? What about a wedgie? Now THAT would suck. Thankfully, I was just staring at the jumbotron in hopes of watching other people go through that embarrassment. 4 seconds of fame. NBD.

The next day was followed by the second annual CrossFit Broadway Amazing Race. Our gym gets together, splits off into teams, and is given clues to find their way around Denver while completing tasks at multiple stations. They had to do multiple things such as partner handstand walks, eating marmite sandwiches, and singing or dancing to the public in order to beg for money to get a cab ride back to the gym. It took the athletes 2-4 hours depending how their hitchhiking went. Of course the winning team was a group of girls dressed in pink and fairy wings. No one is frightened to pick up girls like that. Guys on the other hand, that just doesn’t work as well. Girls don’t want to pick you up because that’s creepy. And guys don’t want to pick you up because you’re a dude. It’s usually a lose-lose situation. Either way, it was fun. I did not partake, I just watched some of the misery. Especially if their hitchhiking hadn’t gone well.

Who is excited for the season finale of the bachelorette?! I am! I am! I have to admit it. Which is sad because she’s crying constantly in all of the commercials. Why do we like watching other people’s misery? It’s real weird, but I won’t deny it.

Guess where I am right now? At the airport. I’m typing with my thumb as I slowly move through security. There is a cop on a bike inside the airport. That’s strange to me. Anywho, I’m headed back to California for some project work. That was part of the reason I didn’t go out to the Games to watch people workout all weekend. And because I don’t find that incredibly thrilling. Word on the street was that the crowd kind of sucked this year! Is it true? Fill me in on the gossip!

  • Yield: 3-4 1x



For the jam

For the ice cream


  1. Place blueberries and honey in a saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Let the blueberries cook down until they have burst and become more of a thicken mixture. Like jam!
  3. Then add vanilla extract, lavender buds, and salt. Mix well.
  4. Once blueberries are almost completely broken down, remove from heat, and place in refrigerator to let cool.
  5. While the jam cools, whisk together coconut milk, honey, and almond extract.
  6. Pour ice cream mixture into anice cream maker.*
  7. Once the coconut mixture is almost done churning and has become thick, pour in jam into the ice cream maker until it mixes into the ice cream.


*If you do not have an ice cream maker, pour the ice cream mixture into a bread pan, then mix in the jam with a spoon. Let sit in the freezer for 4+ hours before scooping with an ice cream scoop. You may need to let it sit at room temp. for a while before scooping.

    Do you have any recipes for ice cream using stevia? I follow paleo and candida diet so I am limited in what I can eat. I could try your sweet potato ice cream but I try to stay away from them as well. I’d love you forever if you could.

      No I don’t. I’m sorry

  2. Richard says:

    This really is yummy! Thanks so much for posting. Per my question above, I used 1 tbsp and it was ok.

    If I wanted to reduce the amount of sugar in the recipe (leaving it to the blueberries and the coconut milk), what’s the minimum amount of honey you think I could get away with?

    Thanks again!

    My Paleo creations are finally coming right! Ice cream was beyond delicious! Didn’t have lavender buds but what a treat still! Added arrow root powder-super yummy with that nice ice cream consistency**!

  4. Ashley says:

    Best ice cream my husband and I have made. The consistency was perfect and the lavender was a lovely touch.

    I made this for a paleo potluck yesterday and it was a hit! I did make some substitutions, though. I was running low on honey, so in lieu of using it in the jam, I used coconut sugar instead. Also, cut down the 1/3c in the ice cream base to 1/4c.

    Other than that, I loved it…so much so that I made it again today!

    Thank you for the amazing recipe! You ROCK!

    Hi Juli! I am fairly new to your site but am really excited to start making some of your recipes. Unfortunately, we are nut-free (in the literal sense) in our home. Do you have a recommendation for substituting the almond extract? I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!! 🙂

    1. juli says:

      You could just use vanilla extract instead!

    Hello , I just stumble upon this and it looks really beautiful. I really want to make it but unfortunately, my country doesn’t grow neither lavender nor fresh blueberries. Can I just substitute this using an essence? If so, how many do I need to make 1 litre? Thank you!

    1. juli says:

      you can just leave it out! and maybe find some lavender oil?
