Okay, maybe just the pickles or just the ice cream! During both of my pregnancies I craved both ice cream and pickles (not together). It probably didn't help that I was pregnant during the heat of Utah summers both times HA! I came up with this recipe during my second pregnancy and it became a fast favorite! BONUS no refined sugar in the ice cream. *If you are dairy free try substituting the milk for almond and the heavy cream with coconut cream.
