If you follow me on Instragram, you know I’ve been going a little crazy with ice cream and frozen yogurt recipes. And for good reason; hello warm weather! I’ve been using Natural Bliss to replace heavy cream traditionally used in homemade ice cream. Pictured above is Homemade Milk Chocolate Ice Cream made with Vanilla Natural Bliss. I shared this with our staff recently – homerun! Fold in mini chocolate morsels or chopped toasted nuts during the last minute or so of churning for an added treat.
Sweet Cream Natural Bliss is used in this Fresh Strawberries & Cream Frozen Yogurt. Natural Bliss acts as the “cream,” macerated strawberries add the depth and nonfat Greek yogurt adds the tartness this frozen yogurt needs. I think this was our staff’s favorite.
This Fresh Mango, Coconut & Lime Ice Cream is a favorite of my daughter (she’s holding the cone in the image above). Fresh mangoes have a luscious texture that becomes velvety when puréed, which makes them well-suited for ice cream. This ice cream has more of sherbet texture, largely due to the fact that we are using refrigerated coconut milk. This milk is a lot thinner and has less fat when compared to canned coconut milk. Canned coconut milk can easily be substituted if you desire more of an ice cream texture.
This “No Ice Cream Maker Needed” Berry Ice Cream is a snap to put together. Simply whirl together frozen berries and/or chopped fruit, Lowfat Vanilla Natural Bliss and fat-free milk in a food processor for instant ice cream (a food processor is best for this recipe since the mixture is so thick). Enjoy immediately or transfer to a covered container and freezer for later enjoyment. As it freezes, this ice cream takes on more of a sherbet texture.
I can’t wait to see how you use Natural Bliss!
Also, just a reminder, our All Things Chocolate recipe contest ends June 8. Enter before it’s too late!
