This incredibly-delicious berry ice-cream can be made without an ice-cream maker in a food processor or blender in five minites flat.
There are many good reasons to add this ridiculously quick and simple recipe to your collection.
Maybe you think that making ice-cream at home is more trouble than buying it.
Maybe you hate unitaskers.
Or think that ice-cream makers are bourgeois.
Or are impatient.
Me, I’m all of the above. Still, when it’s 90 degrees and my kitchen is overflowing with fresh berries, I begin to wonder what life would have been like if I could churn all that summery goodness into a dairy-rich, cold treat.
Enter this recipe.
Everything about this recipe is right:
It requires no ice-cream maker.
It relies heavily on frozen fruit.
It only takes five minutes to prepare.
It is extremely, excruciatingly delicious.
It leaves people endlessly impressed.
But don’t take my word for it. Find out today.
Here is how:
Start with some frozen berries. You can use a 10-oz package of boughten berries, or freeze your own on a cookie sheet. I liked the strawberry version best, but raspberries, which are currently ripe in the garden, are equally amazing, and I can’t wait to try it with blackberries!
Aren’t they pretty?
Throw the berries into a food processor…
Add granulated sugar, and process until the fruit is finely chopped.
With the blade running, pour heavy cream into the opening in the lid and process just until the mixture resembles ice-cream.
If you have processed the mixture too long and ended up with a rather soupy-looking product, don’t fret! Pour everything into a container and stick it the freezer, where it will reach the right consistency by the next day.
Ask me how I know.
Whichever the case, it will be perfect after it firms up. Like this:
And you can freeze and refreeze it without compromising the texture.
Here is the recipe:
