Berry Freeze Ice Dessert

BerryFreeze2

I make this when I want to watch a movie and enjoy a bowl of “ice cream.” It is most definitely not ice cream, but it is sweet and cold and I can actually enjoy it over a longer period of time as it doesn’t melt as quickly. It tastes a little like a sorbet and a little like an Icee or a slushy.

Berry Freeze Ice Dessert Recipe

Gather:

  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Blackberries
  • Raspberries
  • Green Stevia powder or your choice of sweetener

Create:

Place berries and a sprinkle of sweetener in a blender (a bullet-style blender works fine). Add just a little bit of water. In my large blender, this turns out to be about 1/4 of a cup. In my smaller blender it is closer to 1/8 of a cup. You just want enough to keep the fruit moving when you start to blend.

Blend until most of the chunks of berries are gone. A few chunks is ok though.

Pour mixture into a glass bowl, cover, and place in the freezer. Freeze overnight. When you are ready to eat it, take the frozen berry mixture out of the freezer and remove the cover. Allow to sit on your counter for about 15 minutes at room temperature.

With a large metal spoon, scrape the top of the berry ice to form shavings or “slushy” ice.

Revise:

Of course you can use a very wide variety of fruits for this freeze dessert. You can also pour the mixture into popsicle molds or an ice cube tray with toothpicks and covered with plastic wrap. You could also add fruit juice instead of the water for a sweeter result. Enjoy! ~ Amanda Rae

Blueberries as big as the end of your thumb,
Real sky-blue, and heavy, and ready to drum
In the cavernous pail of the first one to come! – Robert Frost
