Real Girl's KitchenReal Girl's Kitchen: Rosemary Olive Oil & Sea Salt Ice CreamHaylie Duff

No matter how they happen, break-ups aren’t fun. They monopolize most of your thoughts, make you want to go to bed at 8pm and eat your weight in ice cream. Sounds cliche, but I didn’t have an appetite for almost two weeks and once I finally felt like eating, all I wanted was ice cream. Then my mom said the magic words: ice cream, salt and olive oil. Three of my favorite things, all together in this magical little mason jar.

To add a little something special, I infused the olive oil with some fresh rosemary from my backyard. It’s easy – pour about a cup of olive oil in to a sauce pan and warm on low heat for about 15 minutes. Strain the old leaves out, transfer to a mason jar, let cool. Add some fresh sprigs. Voila!

What you need:

Vanilla bean ice cream

A couple sprigs of fresh rosemary

Olive oil

A good quality sea salt

Scoop your ice cream, drizzle with your olive oil, sprinkle with your salt.

Thanks, Mom.

  2. Okay…..never would have thought about this, but very curious! I’m going to try this out soon!

  3. Wow, disgusting!

  4. I just made this & am literally eating it right now & I couldn’t get here fast enough to say how absolutely amazing it is! I so wish I would’ve thought of this myself. It’s seriously one of the best thing I’ve ever eaten. I’m reall glad I made extra rosemary oil & I’m wishing I’d bought a bigger tub of ice cream :-)

    • wow! love that you love it! i just posted another ice cream combo… check it out on is a little naughty but so tasty!

  5. This looks so, uhm, quirky! But delicious! I will be trying this.

  6. If you have a good balsamic vinegar, that’s ridiculously delicious on ice cream as well! (Make sure it’s the legit stuff, though.)

  7. looks delicious! i will have to try.
