healthy ice cream anyone???

Braveheart has been doing so well. We have him on a pretty strict, immune system healing diet right now. That chemo can really destroy ones immune system. Although I did this after his end of treatment, I obviously was not aggressive enough and his illness returned. That 'cancer' (I hate saying that word, it feels like I am giving it power and I don't want to), is really annoying and prowls about like a lion waiting to devour...yes, did you recognize that from the bible? That is what cancer is to me. I am rambling aren't I?
Well, he has been begging for ice cream. Can you imagine giving up all processed white sugar foods? Due to my boy being so diligent, I told him I would make him some 'healthy ice cream" when we got his next test back and it showed more improvement. IT DID!! So I made this ice cream following a recipe that came with my little, cheap, Aldi purchased ice cream maker that you just plug in. I used organic cream, almond milk, organic milk, dash of organic vanilla and honey! Yes, honey, local from a high school fellow homeschooler. Local raw honey is the best kind to get. It actually has anti tumor properties...can you believe it? Now we still wouldn't want to load up on it, but it is a good substitute for all sugar things I USED to make for him. Oh have I been making things for him. I can't wait to share more with you.
Here is the only picture I got unfortunately. I usually take it out of the maker and freeze it a little longer in the freezer. I have a real awesome kitchen dream for someday if I ever get on one of those free kitchen shows!!

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
