    Lightbulb Ice Cream

    Tried my hand at a somewhat healthy desert tonight, came out very good. If you have a strong blender it's pretty easy to make. i used a vitamix, but a blendtec or something similar should work.

    2c frozen strawberries, 1/2 c heavy cream, 1 tbsp honey. Blend for 30 seconds.





    I originally saw it made on this vitamix promotional video:

    I'm a big fan of using honey as the sweetener in ice cream. The recipe in Sally Fallon's Nourishing Traditions calls for maple syrup, and that works fine as well, but I think it's less of a health food than honey is.

    My recipe for honey and cinnamon ice cream:

    3 cups heavy cream
    6 egg yolks
    1/3 cup honey
    1 teaspoon cinnamon

    Blend all ingredients in a processor, then put the mixture in an ice cream maker.

    I made some pumpkin and coconut milk ice cream a while back that was delicious. Basically I made a stove-top custard then cooled then into the ice cream maker.
