This recipe is inspired by the raw berry ice cream recipe from my favorite cookbook Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon. Homemade ice cream is much better for you than commercial ice cream and don’t be afraid of the high fat content. Raw cream from grass-fed cows is very good for you and even better for fast growing children.
This was the best ice-cream EVER!!! Seriously, it was awesome, and the cardamom was an incredibly exquisite taste I’ve never had before in ice-cream, absolutely amazing! Good idea hellaD!!
I would recommend using a pasteurized eggs for your recipe. It’s especially important for small children because they have developing immune systems.

I personally have eaten raw eggs my whole life (even as a child) and never had a problem. But, if you are going to use raw eggs you should definitely educate yourself and not just use any old egg. As we all know, not all eggs are equal. Commercially produced factory eggs are not good to eat raw at all. Make sure your eggs are cage-free. It is best if you know the farmer you are getting your eggs from and how healthy the chickens are that are laying the eggs.
This link to Dr. Mercola’s site gives some good pointers on what to look for to be sure your eggs are fresh as well as information on how nourishing raw egg yolks are, as well as information on salmonella.
