As a preview and yet another shameless plug for my upcoming Ice Cream social, I couldn't resist trying this recipe for 5 minute Ice Cream when I came across it. That's not much longer than it takes to walk from the couch to the freezer :-) The consistency is like soft serve if you eat it right away. After freezing it hardens up a bit.
I loved it! Very full berry taste like sorbet but extra creamy. I think next time I try this, I will freeze the blender pitcher for a while before making to assist in the cooling process. I imagined it would have had more of a pastel "ice cream" color but its pretty bold!
5 Minute Ice Cream
Adapted from this recipe on Allrecipes
- 1 (10 ounce) package frozen fruit (I used last season's blackberries)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2/3 cup heavy cream
- Combine the frozen berries and sugar in a food processor or blender. Process until the fruit is roughly chopped. With the processor running, slowly pour in the heavy cream until fully incorporated. Serve immediately, or freeze for up to one week.
Hope this inspires you to whip up something even if its quick and come to the Ice Cream Social next weekend, July 16th& 17th! Any ice cream related post is welcome - even if its just ice cream dishes or a memory you have of a favorite ice cream treat! I'll have the linky up Saturday by 10am PST.
