This is a very fast, cheap and easy way to make your soft ice / sorbet.
You can use nearly every fruit, some are better than others for this. Good are raspberries, strawberries, tropical fruits, wood berries... etc.

What you need:

Ingredients:
  • frozen raspberries
  • milk (or cream)
  • sugar or like I used here: sweetener. If you use sweetener and low-fat milk this will be the most low-calorie ice cream you will ever eat, but the tastiest too.

Tools:
  • strong blender (I used the one, you already know from here)

Step 2: Pour and blend.

Pour the fruits into the blender.
Blend them a short while, so they look like in the picture.

Step 3: Add sweetness

Add sugar, sweetener or honey to the coarse blended fruits.
Blend again for a few seconds, so the sweetener is mixed in.

Step 4: Add good old milk

Pour in the milk. About a cup or so, just pour in a bit, blend and pour in more, if it has not the viscidity you wish.
If you don't give a shit on calories, you can also add cream instead of milk. It makes it - surprise - creamier but I don't like it so much. I like it light and fluffy. Not because of the calories, I like the fruity taste and not so the creamy one.

Step 5: Serve and enjoy.

Serve and enjoy soon. It will not last long but sure it will not melt in seconds.
Give it a try, comment and tell if you tried other fruits.

Thanks.

 Great recipe idea, I ended up making banana and vanilla with a bit of low fat cream cheese in mine...just wish the damn freezer would hurry up now!!

I make a similar treat with frozen peaches and bananas! The frozen bananas make it creamy and instead of milk I use a little bit of coconut milk. I want to try your version, it looks great!

The banana-thing sounds logic and good. I have to try it. Thanks.

Sometimes i just blend frozen banana chunks with a spoonfull of vanilla yogurt for my 4 year old daughter. She calls it banana ice cream!

any reason you use frozen fruit? any reason you couldn't use fresh?
knarx (author)  UltraMagnus6 years ago
Without frozen fruits - no ice cream.
I feel silly now....
hedgiehog6 years ago
actually i do summin similar, i take icecream, raspberries, and protien powder and blend it together, and freeze it, essientally making raspberry protien icecream. tastes awesome
knarx (author)  hedgiehog6 years ago
Protein ice cream - never tought of that. This makes the ice cream very soft, even when it comes directly from the freezer, I think.
hedgiehog knarx6 years ago
oh im sure it does stay very soft, but for me i hate soft, melts to fast, I love the rock solid stuff. Still good recipe.
Looks tasty! I may have to try it some time, although our blender has all but crapped out on us.
