Super-easy ice cream, take two.

My new cookbook suggests throwing frozen berries and heavy cream in a food processor until velvety smooth.  Anyone have some frozen berries they want to test this one?

Just like with the banana recipe, you just wing it.  The recipe said "a bunch of frozen berries and 1/2 cup heavy cream" which is silly since it didn't have a specific measurement for the berries, so I'm assuming just put in berries, and pour in heavy cream until it's a good consistency.

I tried it.  I added half plain yogurt and half whipping cream.  DH didn't like it at all.  LO ate some.  I liked the consistency but it needed alittle sweetener I think.  Would maybe add stevia next time.

On Wednesday I'm going to get some raw milk (that's when it's freshest at the store) and I'll try it then with the cream on the top. :)

I just tried it and blueberries didn't smooth out enough, having them frozen made the cream freeze on them, and my blender ended up smoking.

I mixed in some white chocolate chips and stuck it in the freezer.  I'm not sure what to think.

The banana ice cream recipe sure seems to trump this one so far.

Hmmm.... hearing all these comments, I may not try it. LOL!

Honestly?

I wish I'd used the blueberries for a smoothie and the heavy cream for potato and leek soup instead.
