You name it, I can think of a health-improving reason to eat it. But this berries and cream ice cream doesn't need my sophisticated excuses. It speaks for itself, and it's saying,
"I'm full of anti-oxidants, healthy fat, and honey (which fights infections and treats allergies, studies suggest) Eat me! Eat me! Eat me!"
You won't regret it, guys and gals, especially you who have dairy allergies like I do. This easy-to-make ice cream is about to make your summer a lot healthier and tastier.
Here's what you'll need to make it:
- 1 16-oz bag of frozen berries (I used mixed berries for the ice cream in the photo)
- 3/4 of a can of full fat coconut cream —Trader Joe's coconut cream is my favorite*
- 1/4 c. honey
Step 1: Stick the honey and coconut cream in a blender or food processor and pulse until they are blended. If you like really sweet ice cream, then add 1-2 more tablespoons of honey.
Step 2: Add the bag of frozen berries to the cream and honey mixture, and blend until smooth.
Step 3: Scoop up a heaping serving of the finished ice cream and enjoy! The ice cream will have the consistency of soft serve at this point, which is my favorite way to eat it. If you want it to be firmer, then pop it in the freezer for a few hours before serving.
