Blueberry Ice Cream

Blueberry Ice Cream

Ever crave rich creamy ice cream but not want all the fat/sugar/additives?  Well I discovered the perfect solution this weekend – and its fat free, low calorie, full of antioxidants/vitamins and FAST (as it less than 5 minutes!).  And best of all, it doesn’t even require an ice cream maker!  This fat free ice cream could be made with any combination of yogurt and frozen fruit.  So far I’ve tried this blueberry version, as well as Peach + rum (yes, I added a shot of rum hehe).  I can’t wait to make a ‘pina colada’ version with vanilla yogurt, frozen pineapple, rum and coconut extract!  See the recipe below

Ingredients:

  • 1.25 cups fat free fruit flavoured yogurt (for the blueberry version I used blueberry yogurt.  Vanilla would have also worked)
  • 1.75 cups unsweetened frozen fruit (for the blueberry version, I obviously used frozen blueberries.  For other flavours, you could try peaches, strawberries, raspberries, pineapple, mango, etc…)
  • Splenda to taste (I used only a few tablespoons with the blueberries, as the yogurt was already sweet)

Method:

  • (Makes 4 small servings)
  • Place half of the yogurt into a food processor (a blender will also work, but takes a bit more patience as you’ll have to stop and stir it a few times)
  • Start the food processor.  Drop in a few pieces of fruit at a time (through the top feeder) as the yogurt blends. 
  • Once you’ve added about half the fruit, stop the processor and add the rest of the yogurt. 
  • Repeat the process adding all remaining fruit.
  • You can serve this right away, but ideally stick it in the freezer for approximately 2-4 hours.  Give it a good stir before serving
  • I have yet to determine what happens if you leave this in the freezer for longer than a few hours – it may turn hard and requiring some softening/stirring before serving.
  • Enjoy!!!
