  • Instant berry ice cream



    I just made this and it tasted so good that I had to share it here. After having BAS for lunch, I wanted dessert. I remembered the frozen berry medley I had got from Trader Joe's a few months ago and I also had about 1/4 cup of coconut milk left from using it for some other dish. I whizzed them both in a blender and ended up with one of the best ice creams I've eaten.


    Recipe:


    1.5 C frozen berries

    1/4 C coconut milk (more or less)


    Blend the above 2 in a blender till the consistency resembles ice-cream. Transfer to a bowl and enjoy without any guilt.

        This is the same sort of thing I do for my smoothies. I just use more liquid, then I can drink it through a straw. Which is pretty much all I want to do when I'm wilting in the heat, like today.


        (thinking...meat smoothie?...nooo)

          I just made another batch and sprinkled some cocoa on it while eating. Next time, I'll try adding the cocoa while blending the berries. Berry-cocoa ice cream tastes great. Make only the amount you'll eat at a time as the texture will change if you freeze or refrigerate it.


          I think this a great dinner party dessert idea, if it's a small group. You ask your guests what fruit flavored ice-cream they want and blend the frozen fruit with CM and serve it to them.

            After reading this post, I ran downstairs and made something similar w/ frozen banana, coconut milk, and coconut butter! I love coconut butter - it has nice chunks in it and adds intense flavor!

              Sofia, where do you coconut butter? Is it available in grocery stores or do you get them online?

                    I got coconut butter at the PCC (it's like whole food). You MUST get some and use in smoothies or spread on fruit or primal "toast" or pancakes - anywhere you would use almond butter - it's seriously so so so so so so good and yummy! I use to use coconut oil, and then decided to splurge and try this and boy am I glad! It's totally different and think and like a nut butter, but coconut. With really intense flavor!

                      I just made it with frozen cranberries, cocoa, agave and greek yogurt. I didn't have coconut milk. It's yummy!


                      I can't wait to try it with berry medley and coconut milk!

                        I've been making this with cream too and it tastes just like old-fashioned home-made ice cream.

                          I just made this today. After reading all these posts, I knew I had to make my own version of ice cream.


                          1 pint raw cream

                          2 cups mixed frozen berries

                          dash of vanilla

                          2 heaping tablespoon of raw chocolate powder

                          1/4 cup agave.


                          I blended everything first and then put this mixture into my ice cream maker and 15 minutes later we had delicious real ice cream. I have done this also just with the blender and it tastes great also.

                            I do something similar, and i just LOVE it, i have it everyday for breakfast. I take 8oz of plain yoghut, 2tbs peanut butter, scoop of chocolate protein shake, then mix blue berries and raspberries in the blender (just the berries) to crush them, then i mix everything in a bowl and voila....DREAM COME TRUE, try it.

                              yum..I made some the other night, and added frozen coconut meat for a thicker consistency. I could have it sold at the ice cream parlor next door.


                              Frozen Berries (I like strawberries)

                              coconut milk

                              frozen coconut meat
